I would agree with most of the posters above - they are too clean, too well styled, too made up and their teeth all look wonderful after 15 years without a dentist visit. They fight with swords, magic medallions abound and all vulnerable persons are getting squashed. All the world needs is Robin Hood and Katniss Everdeen to come to the rescue.
That said, Revolution is fun, it's pretty, the sets look amazing and it is just the beginning. Everyone involved might grow into their parts (actors, directors and writers.) I think there is potential here.
no guns? give me a break, there are millions of guns around and tons of ammo. they could never get all those out of circulation. one automatic rifle would have taken out that whole platoon. plus horses, militia would all have horses as they would be valuable and mobile. black powder guns? gimme a break and they wouldn't have gone back that far. why arn't generators or even hydro dams working? EMP yeah I get that but it wouldn't take everything down. why does gov dissapear at least at the state level.
lost interest in lost because too many questions and few real answers that made sense. but swords? come on, hokey. all the militia dudes would have had compound bows, which there are huge amount around and very simple to maintain at least.
Terra Nova without the dinosaurs. Same cliche family. Boring characters. Illogical and veryHunger Games. Lack of imagination is pitiful. In short.... A mess.
Loved the show, anytime they think outside the box I'm thrilled. I'm sure Sci fi people know how to suspend some belief in things and plots so the story can move along. I'm thrilled with it
Sucks. 15 years after power gone. Nothing works? Clothes pressed and off the rack. Clean shaved and clean and washed hair and styled. Lots of store-bought booze left. Lots of candles and lanterns burning freely. No one seems to be working or hunting. What about wild animals dragging off the kids. Guns and bows working perfectly. Lots of arrows. Who's birthing the babies? Oh and the medallion... magically turns the power back on someday, but wait, what about rust and decay on equipment? This is a joke.. The Road movie had a better handle on the future... I quit watching after 15 minutes just like I did with Terra Nova.
I enjoyed the pilot a lot..
It's a tv show; not everything is going to be perfect.
Therefore, I sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! Stop asking so many questions and enjoy the show for what it has to offer.
This show is a little too predictable and it much have some of the writers from Lost on this show. It makes me think of Lost so very much with a piece of Hunger Games thrown in the mix. I will give the show another chance but it has to stop being quite so predictable for me or it is bye bye. Oh and love General(Sargeant)Monroe.
It's a pilot, so its going to get better. The secret/surprise is who can 'boot up'--but who is getting it? That's the question. I'd like this better if there were some old people--who might have actually done something with their hands back in 1998!
That said--I'll watch it again. Might have to go get me one of those bow and arrow things.
Felt plot mediocre sci-fi. Miles fight with a sword looked like an Errol Flynn staged sword fight. One guy vs 10??? Kills all. What was in the booze he was drinking. The world went dark because of an Electric Magnetic Pulse. Ok I get that. Ok they walked to Chicago on foot, but does not tell you starting point. Why wouldn't it have taken months. No maps; no GPS. How did they navigate the teraine? They are always clean, with nice new clothing. The whole thing does not seem realistic. The world was set back at least 140 years to a pre-electronic age--roughly the 1870's. Communications are down. Light at night would have been with lamps at best. Where did they get the oil to light them? Was there trade between communites. The one thing that still was around were Taxes. Guess we can never get rid of those or the Sheriff of Nottingham Soldiers.
If they want to keep me watching they will have to do better than this, especially opposite CASTLE.
