  • Lost syndrome

    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.
