I won’t give away any spoilers. But one thing’s for sure: „The 100“ has what it takes to be one of the best ScFi series in the last 5 years. The story lines of the first two episodes are very promising, and the producers have obviously decided to invest in more sets, CGI and actors.
US tv sci fi series are some sort of a marvel. They often appear and disappear without big noise. Which was the case with lots of them in the past years. The last example was ALMOST HUMAN, a very expensive science fiction crime drama that didn’t survive the first season, despite some very good stories and a cast that rocked. But something went wrong, so it wasn’t renewed. Pity. When „The 100“ a post-apocalyptic tv series made a debut on German itunes store I was sure, they wouldn’t survive a first season either, but I was wrong.

1962 marked the beginning of the space age in Germany. The first issue of the pulp scifi-series „Perry Rhodan – Heir of the Universe“ was published in this year.
It tells the story of a “space force astronaut”, who flies with 4 companions to the moon in 1971 – and there he finds the remnants of an alien space ship with two survivors. And so an epic adventure begins.
