1 of 27The 100 (The CW)
Premieres: Wednesday, March 19 at 9/8c
What do you get when you cross The Lord of the Flies, Battlestar Galactica, and [insert any CW show here]? This surprisingly heavy and promising sci-fi drama about incredibly attractive juvenile delinquents who've been tasked with assessing the livability of a post-apocalyptic Earth while the adults wait in an orbiting spaceship to see if the kids are eaten by aliens. Teens will die, and you will enjoy it. (Pro tip: The title's pronounced "The Hundred," not "The One Hundred." Impress your friends.) Henry Ian Cusick, Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Isaiah Washington and future heartthrob Thomas McDonell star.
