The 100 isn’t normally my kind of show as generally I don’t have much interest in these ever-growing post-apocalyptic shows (which I included The Walking Dead), but I did find this one to be semi-entertaining.

THE SEASON


Season Synopsis: Season Five begins six years after our heroes escaped Earth’s second nuclear apocalypse. Bellamy’s team is in space. Clarke (ELIZA TAYLOR) is on the ground. Hundreds are trapped in a bunker below. When a massive prison ship descends upon the last survivable place on Earth, The 100 must come together to reclaim their home. As two armies converge on one valley, alliances shift, friends become foes and the march to war threatens to destroy the remnants of the human race. Can our heroes break the cycle? Or are they doomed to repeat the past? In this epic battle for survival, one thing is certain: There are no good guys.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.0/5


This release comes via Warner’s Archive Collection and the 3-discs are housed in a standard Blu-ray case. Features are limited with only The 100: Redemption and Rebirth (10:23) behind-the-scenes featurette, The 100: 2018 WonderCon Panel (26:23) footage with the cast and crew basically promoting this fifth season and lastly a Gag Reel (4:36).

 


VIDEO – 4.5/5, AUDIO – 4.25/5


The fifth season of The 100 is presented with a 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio as originally televised, the 1080p high-definition transfer looks rather good and even though it is in a post-apocalyptic setting, so colors are more on the natural side of the spectrum, there is some good pops of color here and there, while black levels were fairly stark.

Each episode comes with a standard but rather effective DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Dialogue comes through the center channel with nice surrounds for the ambient noises along with the generic score.


OVERALL – 3.5/5


The 100 isn’t normally my kind of show as generally I don’t have much interest in these ever-growing post-apocalyptic shows (which I included The Walking Dead), but I did find this one to be semi-entertaining, all things considered. This Blu-ray released through the Warner Archive Collection has good video and audio transfers, though the features are on the limited side.
