  • season 2 loses it

    1.0
    What I thought was supposed to be a story about a strong young girl whose values help to redeem the world has suddenly turned into an ugly story about a murderous slutty girl with no values.

    This show has really got to the point that it should not be aired during prime time.

    The show is pretty mediocre and really has nothing to offer now.
  • Second impression, Still no good.

    1.0
    The writing in this show is elementary. There is no real suspense in the show. How did I know the guy he (the uncle) let live at the beginning of the episode, would come back and be an issue later...who would have guessed.
  • What the...?

    5.0
    Ok, I started to watch this show because of some names (J.J. Abrams, E. Kripke) and the idea about blackout. First epizode was not superb, but it was not bad too. At least not VERY bad ;) But the second one... Are you serious? There are some major logical issues. I assume that Monroe, as former soldier, has built his militia on former US Army. How is then possible, that they have only few guns??? There should be tons of guns in army warehouses. And why, if the helicopter is so important for him, it is guarded only by few guards, when there are tousands of soldiers under his command? And, of course, only ONE of them got ANY gun (not to mention, that it is sniper rifle almost useless when using from horseback). Ok, our heroes need the rifle, so how to take it from them? We got fine archer and two swordsmen. How about to setup a trap along the road, find hide on the tree, shoot the one with the rifle, as many of the rest as possible and kill the remaining ones with sabres? No? Why? What? Because it is Revolution?!? Ah, yes. So we create in nearby cabin (hmmm, what a coincidence, it is so close to our heroes) some simple version of colt (hmmm, what a coincidence, that all those parts could be found in that cabin ;) and kill the guy (with the rifle) from a distance of few meters (with silly lost-in-the-woods story) which will let our heroine helpless amongst the guys with the sabers. BUT there are those fine swordsmen which will kill them... Well, does it sound ok to you? And this is only ONE example...moreless
  • Sidequest

    3.0
    Even worse than the pilot episode. As if we didn't knew already, that the brave, beautiful, innocent, good girl is on a quest against the evil of the world to rescue her naive, sick and helpless brother, we got a full episode all about showing us how brave, beautiful, innocent and good this girl is. And so that even the last viewer sees it, we also got the US flag to point at who the good guys are, just in case.



    We also got a plot - or maybe not - that had nothing to do with anything but to fill some airtime with a side quest. Yes, it seems even the writers know that the main plot is so thin it couldn't last even for the second episode.



    It's just the second episode, and I'm really into SciFi, but I'm watching it already just because I somehow can't believe it - and it's getting more and more unintentionally comical.moreless
  • Needs better writers and a darker story line

    7.5
    I enjoy the premise of the show but there are inconsistencies that tend to make me question too many things I see. Better writing would help, the actors aren't too bad. I don't mind the girl in the main story line but I'd like to see the show turn a little darker. I'll watch another show but the writing better improve soon. This reminds me of Terra Nova and that's not good, especially when it could be so much better.moreless
