I love this show. Billy Burke is very actiony. I love him in this show. I was watching it every week, until it went off the air. My question is, why is Charlie so hard headed? She keeps him in trouble most of the time. Her character does not listen to Miles. Can there be another female to play Charlie, one who doesn't cry most of the time, talk back, disobey an elder of the family?
I love almost everything about this show, the setting, the villains, the google guy and the story. But there is one thing about this that made me stop watching this. That is the stupid ass main character. That girl is without doubt the most incompetent main character i have seen in a long time, and i watched twilight for crying out loud. She makes horrible decisions, she gets people hurt, she risks other peoples life with her ignorance and should just crawl in a hole and die. Sadly i won't continue watching this show until she does. As good as this show is, she is a horrible horrible lead character
I kept watching until they explained a necklace can power surrounding equipments. It is an complete failure sciencevise. Thus i assume they cannot explain why chemical, mechanical electricity production arent possible or why there isnt any old diesel engines working around which dont require any electricity. And Charlie, always looking with crying red eyes. I cant stand to watch. How can a girl grown in 15 years of hard life be so emotional and tend to cry every episode.
First time i watched the pilot i was so bored i fell asleep but decided to give it a try ant its worth it, the concept is good but the writers are going the wrong way with it. the main actress is annoying and should improve her acting but apart from that Revolution is a treat with drama, action and suspense.
Same old same old . Here we have a great theme and this is what they make of it ! Are there no generators. How on earth do these people have teeth wither than white after 15 years living in the "stone age" ? And look at the beautiful shiny curly long hair of the women ? This is so unreal to me When a time like this should come people would not care for such things They would be *surviving* And again this bad guy good guy scenario . Heroin is legal but nobody lights a cigarette ? Get a grip ! I bet that after 6 seasons it turns out everyone was dead .......
Revolution may be predictable it is like no other tv show on these days and it keeps you wanting to know what will happen next. I think it is a great new addition to NBC. I know many people who love it and I really hope it isn't cancelled.
I've seen the first three episodes and each time I'm watching it I fall asleep. It's indeed what MgavanderSlui so predictable! The female hero on the show should take some more acting lessons because she sooooooo bad! And the whole show doesn't make sense. If the world has come to an end why is everybody so clean The CGI is good but not that great. This is show is not going to survive and I think the big bosses in NBC is sharpening their axes allready.
I can honestly say that when I read about Revolution, I didn't find it all that interesting. Big things have been promised before, fantastic texts about shows that are hyped up to ridiculous degrees, and then they fall flat on their face. This time I'm happy I took that chance. I love this show, and feel it's one of those very few out there that are fairly unique, and manage to fully pull off what they promise. I really enjoy this show, and I can't wait for more.
It has some flaws, but overall a good show. I don't like the Charlie character however. No offence to Tracy Spiridakos, but could the people who made this show not find a more attractive woman to play Charlie? Also why have her be called Charlie? It sounds too boyish. Since her actual name is Charlotte why not have be called, oh I don't know, Charlotte? Plus, the only thing Charlie is really good for is getting the group in some sort of trouble. Also, they need to get rid of the Aaron character. He adds absolutely nothing to the group or the show. Heck, get rid of Charlie too.
UPDATE: In the fall finale, David Lyons' gives an Emmy-worthy performance and the character arcs become really juicy. Hold on guys, we're in for one hell of a ride!
Many make the mistake of thinking this is a post-apocalyptic show. Its not. Its set 15 years after the blackout (the apocalypse), there is a government that's ruling over the masses. There's no more total anarchy. Though it has a sci-fi premise, its an adventure show with its heart in the right place. I started out not liking this show, but it grew on me over time. The dialogues are great, the action is on a whole level above anything on tv right now, the characters are realistic and become endearing over time. Its not perfect, but its the only show this year that manages to get better every episode and redeem itself.
Notice that the Militias are the ones that are the bad guys. They continue to violate the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Owning firearms (2nd amendment) especially. Of course the "good guys" are those that are for restoring the United States. Is this bizarro world? Everyone knows that militias today are 100% 2nd amendment. This is crazy. What . Government bureaucrat did NBC hire to write this series?
Aaron of course still after 15 years of walking and starvation seems to still weigh 300 pounds???
Bicycles seem to not have been invented yet as everyone seems to walk everywhere unless they are lucky enough to have a horse.
Good premise to a show but poorly executed. I really want to like this show but find it lacking. NBC, please fire your . Government bureaucrat that writes the scripts and hire some real writers.
Seriously, cuz here we go on yet another mediocre ride. Don't get me wrong, the show has potential, serious potential but, instead to be for network what The Walking Dead is for basic cable and Game of Thrones for premium cable, it gets stuck on the same flaws that cancelled Alcatraz.
To quote Beyond the Thunderdome sountrack: We don't need another hero, we don't need to know the way home - or, in this case, back to electric power - we don't even need a serialized show, all we want lies beyond cliches and bad dialogue. Bring it on!
Internal combustion engines are spark-ignition, they use SPARK PLUGS to ignite the gas vapours. Diesel engines use compression heat to ignite the fuel, but they use electrically driven starters to turn over the engine, and electrically driven pumps to deliver compressed air and/or fuel.
Either way, if there is no was to make electricity flow through the wires, they you have no engine.
A Steam engine, as we saw working in the old locomotive in the one episode, relies on a firebox for its heat, and all of the control mechanisms are either hydraulic or mechanical linkages. Thus, you can use it, assuming that you have the parts and someone who knows how to use and fix it.
There are many worse shows on TV (ie Dance Moms, etc.) but this is a difficult show to watch. When you root for the main chaarcter to die, you know you are watching something truly remarkably bad. If you like paper thin plot, terrible scripts, and high school drama club acting, this one's for you.
Please make it end. This is just another JJ Abrams inspired hour of stupidity. No power, humanity falls apart how can we save it.. and an underlying time/dimension theory gone awry. we have seen this in everything JJ has his hands in and this is no different. If you have ever seen a JJ Abrams production you have seen this show. its all the man can do is rewrite the same story over and over and over...
This series dosnt make any sence.. Combustion engiens are pure mechanicle and its wierd not everyone would use that allready after 10years in the dark. The world has been without electricity for hundred of thousens of years with humans living on this planet. So the base ide of this series is thin, and the story dosnt make it any better. And now the lack of oxygen makes you halousinate about things you fear.. Just because someone thought it would make a god story in the script..
For a SciFi series this has to be the best budget series with the worst ever writers, nothing make sence, or nor will ever any explenation, until this turn out to be one of the Lost writers dream once agein.. When I first saw the premier of this series I thought it was due to polar shifts in the earth core or even some sun storm.. But like disel engine cars, its the compression that makes the disel combust, not any electricity.. so its just stupid that all cars stoped working right away..
Im sad to say, this series get a 0 from me in logic, but a 8 for story telling.. overall.. 2.5 out of 10..
Is it a coincidence that this episode featured music by Led Zepplin and all the charactors were hallucinating? I`m trying to like this show but it`s not making it easy. When Charlie was standing on the land mine was there any doubt at all that she would survive? None. So there was`nt any tension, Miles gets beat up a bit and are there any marks on his face? No, a trickle of blood from his nose. This was the worst episode yet I think, there is no logic. We`re running out of air so let`s keep all the torches lit....ummm what?
It is a post-apocalyptic TV-show. I have to say that I love this kind of story where the world is falling appart and you follow a group of survivor. I see a lot of Harsh critics here. I find myself immerse in the story easyly. The scenery and landscape are beautifuly shots and you really feel like the world as we know it stopped. So far, the story is good and the acting also. I hope this show will continue for another season
I think this show is really good, i don't see a problem with it and it brings me back to watching Lost where i always want to know what happens next. Now you maybe thinking the show is going to fast and I can admit it was rushing, you know losing someone in episode 4 and revealing stuff that should have been for later, but really, I don't look at those kind of things in a show, what i really look for is enjoyment and when i watch this show, i enjoy it. And this is why i am giving this show a 10 out of 10 because i sit down and have fun watching and again it brings me back to when i was watching Lost where i had fun watching. That is why I'm giving REVOLUTION a 10 out of 10.
Sometimes a great idea and good cast is completely wasted through bad writing and incoherent situations.
The first two episodes, I was full of hope about this show but every week becomes a greater burden.
I think you can only ask so much of an audience and this show has just about run out of favors.
I want to see where this show is going but each week brings an episode more lackluster and full of more suspended belief-based bounds than the previous one.
Despite a great premise, I doubt this show will survive if they don't improve the writing and provide viewers with more meat in the back story of why and how the lights went out and why society collapsed so quickly.
Keep in mind, I think the timeline for the fall of society is realistic considering today's dependence on electricity and circuits. However, not addressing this imagery at all is lazy production and fails to provide viewers with any anchor point for a unified consensus on how to interpret some of the most important aspects of the series.
They should also address why non circuit-based technology is virtually non-existent in this world. Bicycles, gliders, windmills, watermills... It took 15 years to get an existing steam locomotive running???
Civilization has only had circuits for the last few generations and patents for the last 100 years are still available on microfilm. Even without power a pre-industrial revolution era society could have been achieved.
And what about the rest of the world? Even Resident Evil does a better job of storytelling that this!
