It's J.J. Abrams and I'm willing to give this one a shot. But the Trailer doesn't look all that promising. Granted the scenes are pulled from the Pilot so it's premature to slam it. I just don't want to be disappointed again.

Visually it starts off stunning. Not sure I'm digging the post apocalyptic farming environment. Then again, it's all about the story. Good story... Good show.

Premiering this fall (September 17 to be exact) is NBC’s new genre drama “Revolution”, which has parked its promo items outside the San Diego Comic-Con convention center. Inside Evan Dickson sends in imagery of props from the show including a beat-up car and ferris wheel.

“What would you do without it all? In “Revolution”, an epic adventure thriller from “Supernatural”’s Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Iron Man’s Jon Favreau, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic landscape of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters where every single piece of technology — phones, computers, cars, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.”

“Revolution” stars Billy Burke (Twilight films), Tracy Spiridakos (“Being Human”), Anna Lise Phillips (Animal Kingdom), Zak Orth (Wet Hot American Summer), Graham Rogers (“Memphis Beat”), J.D. Pardo (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad), David Lyons (“The Cape”), Maria Howell (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Tim Guinee (Iron Man films) and is executive produced by Kripke, J.J. Abrams (“Fringe”) and Bryan Burk (“Fringe”).

“Revolution” will air Mondays at 10/9c on NBC this fall. Watch the full-length pilot at Warner Bros. Television’s Preview Night screening at the San Diego Comic-Con on Wednesday, July 11, or during the “Revolution” session on Saturday, July 14.

Elizabeth Mitchell talks about a 'Revolution'

Elizabeth Mitchell added to the cast (not in the Pilot). Awesome! I've been a fan of hers every since Lost.

It didn't suck. Also didn't really grab me. I'll give it some slack because the early shows need to introduce story and characters and develop a foundation. So I'll continue, but with just a mediocre attitude. Just finishing watching the Hunger Games has a very similar look and feel. It's just not the bow and arrow thing. It's the young cast.

Pilot































Revolution isn't bad, but it wasn't particularly entertaining for the bulk of the episode. It's not until the final 2 minutes did it succeed in hooking me in. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the person on the other end of the computer that was typing back is Charlie's "dead" mother played by Elizabeth Mitchell. Anyway, up till the final 2 minutes, the episode played kinda like The Hunger Games with the young cast, neither one of the main characters did I find all that interesting. The dude with the beard, aka the Teacher was by far the most interesting when we learn a little about his past. As for the series, there is a lot of potential here and I will be sticking with it for the time being. Anytime you get a chance to watch Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), you take it. He is awesome in everything he does.

Ep 2

Bored to death. The characters are not interesting, the story lacks tension, therefore grabbing any kind attention from me.

I may give this a try next week, but am not holding anything to close. I don't have time to watch ho-hum drama.

Chained Heat



Revolution right now is falling into the same pattern that plagued Falling Skies for me. In both cases, they paced the episode for something "big" to happen near the end and in both cases, they have yet to really deliver. The first episode they did enough to hook me in. In Chained Heat....nothing. They also need to ramp up the tension of constantly being in peril. The fact that they are able to just wander around the wilderness, yakking away doesn't make me ever feel they are in danger. For the most part, this was a dull episode and I'm not feeling it with the main character. She has zero personality.

I've read reviews about slamming the science behind the show. All the plot holes. And if I had a boat load of time, I guess I would get into the mix of it, but in reality, that's just one little aspect of the show

For me, it's the characters. Not even remotely memorable. As someone who said, it's kind of a mix between the Twilight Saga and Lost. What little I did see of Twilight, yea, the characters are pretty watered down. Tweens probably love this show.
