Well, the same thing can be said about The Hunger Games. It really is the same formula. But for me, what made Games fun to watch, in spite of its initial flaws is that they had Jennifer Lawrence. She made it watchable. The lead actress in Revolution is a bore with no charm whatsoever, which makes all the flaws all the more apparent. I will stick with the show a little while longer because I do think this is the expected 'growing pains' for a new series and I'm willing to cut them some slack till they find their groove.

No Quarter



Not a perfect episode, but definitely much improved over the first two, that much I can attest to. Miles is definitely the hook that they need to start building around. Pretty big reveal when we find out that he is actually the 2nd in Command of the Militia. We also get to see the "birth" of the Militia as well toward the end. We also finally get to see what the necklace is and what it does. From what I gather, it's a self generating power source that can turn on electronic devices within earshot.

As for the girl. Really not sure what she is bringing to the table or even what he role is in the series other than to remind Miles that her brother has been kidnapped. The two characters that the writers have placed as the face of the series are the two weakest in my book. The series still needs some work, but this episode was encouraging. Also, adding Mark Pellegrino was a huge step in the right direction. He is best known as Jacob from Lost.

This needs so much more bang. It caught my eye with the execution and ambush. Not to say it needs violence. It needs more conflict.

The Plague Dogs



I'm starting to warm up to Revolution now, especially after this episode which had a lot of things going on and some surprising twist. For starters, even though Maggie up to this point was probably the least interesting character, I was somewhat surprised they killed her off so soon. Figures that in her final episode, her character gets some depth and becomes very interesting. Ben on the other hand has got to be the dumbest kid on the planet to save Captain Tom Neville, the man that killed his father and has been holding him against his will. Overall, I really liked this episode because they upped the tension for most of the hour.

Soul Train




This getting better and they are pumping up the tension in the right places. A couple of new additions to the cast and a pretty big reveal at the end....actually two reveals. The first being that Jason father is none other than Tom Neville. The other reveal is that their are 12 pendants. My guess is that you need all 12 of them together in order to turn the power back on. Even though it wasn't mentioned, I kinda figured out how and why the first pendant turned itself on. My guess is that if any pendant is on close proximity to another, that's when it comes on. So, that means there was another one (person) that had one. Also, it was nice to finally see Charlie step up and become the leader I was expecting her to be at the start. Now is this temporary or has she finally become a true leader? We shall see.........

I like the addition of Kim Raver (24) and Jeff Fahey (Lost).

Sex and Drugs




Pretty good episode, even if it didn't really further the plot. This one was all about Aaron, both before and after the Blackout and how he kind of lived in his own bubble because he was rich and pacifist. He still is and that's how he was able to trick Drexel into coming out of protection and get the drop on him. They also set up the potential reunion with his Wife when he left her because he couldn't protect her. My guess is that when Aaron finds her again, she will hooked up with that one guy that saved them both.

The Children's Crusade



Very cool episode, even if the main story got somewhat sidetracked with the notion of saving a bunch of kids from the Militia, it did set up some bigger characters that will have a much larger role in the Revolution Universe. Also, I thought it was pretty damn cool how Aaron hiding with the kids from the Militia suddenly is forced to deal with the fact that he has no control of the pendant and it turns the Lighthouse 'ON', giving away his position to well....well, everyone. This show just keeps getting better and better.
