    • Good episode

      8.5
      This was another solid episode of revolution that developed the storyline while also giving us a action packed sidequest, I enjoyed Rachel's storyline and how the show took big steps in season long mystery arc, but for me the side quest was more interesting I like how this show is improving the character of Charlie every week and this week she was great and easy to root for, I also liked aaron standing up to miles and not giving him the pendant. Looking forward to next week!!moreless
    • Wow! Great!

      This was an amzing episode, with some terrific developments, particularly with the lighthouse turning on. Today, we saw what had happened to a random group of orphaned children after the balckout. The story was nice, although admittedly it did not develop much for the main cast, as it was focussed on freeing a guest character.



      The lighthouse turning on was just stunning and I think it will have some huge ramifications as the series plays out!



      Interesting developments back in Philadelphia as well. Definitely very interesting!



      Couldn't be going any better! Can't wait to see more!moreless
    • What the h3ll was this

      This show is going downhill.The episode just sucked big donkey balls...
    • Lost syndrome

      2.0
      The main problem with this show is that they think Lost was a successful show. Mimicking the flashback/flashforward structure of Lost was interesting until they backed themselves into this extremely sticky situation and had to reveal that the complex mythology was all a crock in its final episode and all the characters were in some kind of purgatory. Revolution is suffering from the same problem. Plot holes are papered over. The show is crawling along waiting for the point to kick in. So far the most interesting character has been killed off. Maggies flashback was so interesting it could have been an entire episode. I think hanging the show on a quest to find a character is really intensely stupid - primarily because at some point they will find him and then what? With this sort of useless story they keep having to have these stupid side-quests (this ep being a prime example). I think there were many more interesting stories to be told here. Unfortunately it will be cancelled before they can offer a plausible point for the show. Showrunners either make the last few eps count or kill this show off. Please.moreless
    • Still not impressed..

      4.0
      Well, I will say that this episode was a significant improvement from the last, but it still has too many holes for me to actually believe any of this being possible. I am really having a hard time connecting to any of the characters. I can't honestly say that I 'like' any of them. I think what bothers me most about the show, other than a lot of bad writing and acting, is that the plot development is 'extremely' slow. Yes, we got a little more information about the pendants and the power, but I emphasize little, and we are on what, episode 7 already? Not to mention every episode takes our adventurers away from the reason they left home in the first place. Someone please go get Robert Kirkman or Brian K Vaughan to replace some of these writers and make it a real post-apocalyptic series.moreless
