Exposition Boulevard



Meh. An okay episode that was more 'Mexican Stand off' than anything else. We do at least get to see a throw-down between Tom and Monroe, but it was short. Too short. I guess they are saving the 'Big Showdown' for later. Oh well. One bit of interesting information came out at that was the 'trigger' that is used for the Brainwashed Soldiers. So, each recruit has a number tattooed into the eyelid and when you read the numbers back to the soldier, they flip a switch and become mindless killing soldiers. Now Jason has been flipped. I have a feeling that Tom will discover this within the first half of next weeks episode. I hope so. I really don't want they to drag this out too long. Miles letting one of the Soldiers escape is going to come back to bite him in the ass. My guess is that the kid comes back and ends up killing Gene Porter and Rachel is going to have to deal with the guilt because she was the one to convince Miles to let the kid go.

Why We Fight




"Gus Fring" killed "Ted Beneke".  ;D I like that Revolution has a lot of actors/actresses from both Breaking Bad and 24. We even get Reiko Aylesworth in on the fun with her appearance. Not sure how long she will be around for. I love Reiko and have been a huge fan of hers for a long time. But ever since he swan song from 24, she pops up here and there and different shows, but never as a regular. It's usually a short arc and then they kill her off. So, I'm hopeful that she will stick around longer than she has in years past. As for the rest of the episode, it was okay. All it was was Monroe taking out a camp. Lots of bloodshed, but not a whole lot of plot being advanced.

Wow, I did not see that coming at all. I'm surprised that they killed off Jason because I thought they were going to use the 'Love Triangle' for Charlie and give her one of two options in which way to go. Having it come down to her actually pulling the trigger made it even more shocking. They did a great job in show this scene along with the assassination attempt on the President of Texas, which made an already tense buildup even more epic. Man, I can only imagine how Tom is going to take it when he hears the news about his son Jason. Charlie will now become his public enemy #1.

$#!& Happens



Revolution is notorious for basically walking around in circles with no clear objective where to go and what to do next, much like the story's plot. It's aimless and doesn't really seem to have any kind of end game. With that said, I still keep coming back to the show. Why? For starters, I do like the cast of characters. They are at least entertaining. Another thing I keep coming back is because they always seem to have that one scene that keeps giving me hope that there is something worthy of my time and in $#!& Happens, there were a couple of them. The first and most profound one was Charlie telling Tom that she killed Jason. Talk about a whopper of a scene, full of dread and sorrow. I thought both were fantastic here. The other was Miles reflecting on his life as he was about to end his. I knew wasn't going to go there, but it was fun to watch it play out though.

Tomorrowland




Other than Miles double crossing Monroe to steal away the Mustard Gas Tanks from him, the only interesting thing that happens comes in the final scene when it looks like Tom and Monroe will be joining forces now that Tom has learned that his wife has been "killed". I'm not entirely convinced that is the case though.

I am not at all surprised. I actually expected this. I just wished the writers had a clear idea of what the f*ck they were trying to do with the story. It was a great premise that went nowhere. That's literally the BIGGEST issue I have with the show. The characters were basically walking in circles with no clear idea of what the f*ck it wanted to do. Oh well.......

Memorial Day



With the show officially cancelled, my enthusiasm for this went right out the window. Granted, it has been a long arduous journey watching this show that doesn't go anywhere. Ever. More of the same here. The hook for this one was stealing a Train that's carrying Mustard Gas in the hopes of stopping an attack against innocent people. That's all fine and dandy, but like all things with this show, it too was nothing more than a sleight of hand as the gas was already elsewhere. Next week is the series finale, but my money is on it being a huge let down as they most likely didn't get any kind of warning that the show wasn't coming back. So, I'm not expecting any kind of resolution for....Revolution.

I watched this when it first came out. Just as you said Chip the story just went in circles tried to stay with it for season 2 but it lost me its too bad because the show had a lot of promise. Not surprised it was canceled might catch the finale just to see what they do.

Even though this season has been far from perfect Jim, I still had to stick it out and see if they could do something fun with what they had set up in Season 1. Unfortunately, time just ran out for them. What's frustrating is that everything that was set up in the first season has been all discarded. Ugh!
