First of all, I must say that the plot really got me going. The idea that the technology might be turned off forever is really new among all those new tv shows. Now only that, but it's not to do with anything extraterrestial things or any magic. From the second episode, it seems that it was the humans that shut it off.
Secondly, about those flash drives, we are probably going to see a lot of them. I do hope that they won't use those flash drives to resolve anything that doesn't make sense.
As for Charlie, she is a one dimension character. I liked how she trapped Nate, but the rest of her personnalities are mixed up. She doesn't make sense.
In the end, I think I'll keep following this show for another one or two episodes to really give it a chance.
Just want to note that I pretty much agree with everyone here, I wanted this show to work, I'm watching despite my better sense, but it's just begging to be cancelled, it's treading the same path as Terra Nova, and I tossed that show after two eps. My advice, and this is what I'm doing now, is to only watch the final two eps of this first season (if it's not cancelled first). That way you skip all the slow-reveals and get the major reveals and hooks for the not-so-likely second season.
Oh, Miles could also be Nate's Dad. Heseems conflicted about Charlie, more than just a pretty girl.
I think Nate is Monroe's son, he's milita but seems to follow no orders, is his mom Charlie's mom or the woman he was trying to call 15 yrs ago. I think the writers are setting up great possibilities and I'll watch them unfold.
Wow!! Really glad to know that 15 years after the power goes out we still have great teeth AND clean, attractive clothes. Oh and razor blades, since most of the men seem so clean shaven.
This is the best the writers can do? Charlie grew up in this brutal world and is against killing people who deserve it? And what's with Nate - one look and he's in love, against all orders? I agree with the reviewer, hope he's still chained to that sign.
And SO GLAD the General has been so patient these 15 years with Charlie's mom, never asking her "what's up" till now. Really?
I caught this show OnDemand to see what it was like and it's a dog.
Following the enormous popular and critical success of Space Family Robinson what tv has been crying out for for decades is another really great scifi family drama. Sure Terra Nova, Falling Skies and V were all brilliant in their own way but Revolution trumps them all. The lights went out. They're not going back on this Xmas for this turkey
of questions. It took years to get to where they are now, so what happened to those in charge in the first crucial days? It's like there was absolutely no plan in place for disaster which makes no sense. And only a select few who seem to be able to put everything back. I also didn't like the son. Like a kid with a gun up against a group of 'soldiers' with lots of guns is going to stop them from taking his father?? So he gets him killed along with a bunch of other people and gets taken himself - and of yes, he has asthma! Real smart move. Did intelligence get turned off as well? I will watch another epis but if it doesn't improve, I will not watch it again.
I am not thrilled so far with the show. I was especially eager to see it since Eric Kripke is involved and he gave us SUPERNATURAL my favorite show and it is going into its 8 season. However, I too cannot stand the actress who plays Charlie and the way she is depicting her (I know the director does that) but it is true that although electricity plays a pivotal role in our lives now, the human race did survive centuries w/o it. These pendents which certain people have that can turn the lights back on, do not make sense to me. Who is responsible for what happened? Obviously it was planned and it was also planned to be able to get it up and running again. It was said that it was because the world was about to go nuclear and destroy itself. Well, look what has happened 15 years later - no medicine, no life saving machines for people who need them, planes that fell out of the sky causing untold death and a militia now running the show! What happened to all the governments? A lot of questions. It took years to get to where they are now, so what happened to those in charge in the first crucial days? It's like there was absolutely no plan in place for disaster which makes no sense.
One of the most overhyped shows ever! As Charles Barkley would say...this show is TURRIBLE! I watched the pilot episode last week, was seriously disappointed. Thought I'd give the show another shot. By the first advertisement into episode 2 I was officially done...turned the channel! Where to begin?!?
I'm not going to waste much more of my time on this crapper of a show, but one thing just really annoys me. Uncle Miles! They portray him as if he's some super badass...like a hero you'd find in a video game. Just so ridiculous...not "belivable" at all!
But I would like to thank NBC for GRIMM...just please don't screw it up numbnuts!
Mediocre episode at best. Still can't over how clean their clothes are. I mean if the show wants us to believe that electricity was a VERY important aspect in our life before it went out I would've expected more Walking Dead-ish get-ups not brand new boots and shiny leather jackets! Also, Charlie as the Katniss-like character in this show would be destructive if she does not improve. That actress needs to work more. And now who the fudge is Randall? And how do they communicate with those flash drives do they still have functioning wifi? Is there a satellite functioning somewhere in space? Here's hoping most of my questions get answered next week!
