This show (it's on NBC if you haven't heard of it) is just amazingly awesome. Who else agrees?
I really like it and I think it has a bright future. I have a few minor issues, but it is far better than all the other stuff that attempted this like Alcatraz and Terra Nova. Billy Burke and Giancarlo Esposito are just amazing in it. The fight scenes and special effects are also great for a TV show. I like the characters and the show has an interesting mythology. I hope it sticks around for a while.
It's off to a good start.I just hope they can keep it up.
My big fear is because this show is on NBC it's going to eventually suck and get cancelled.
I caught the pilot. I enjoyed it. I think it has good potential. Unfortunately I missed last nights ep so now I need to get out there and track it down.
I heard Eric from PR Timeforce is in it.
I'm guessing the show takes place 15 years later in 2027 (the opening scene is the year 2012 cause I saw an iPad)
I boycott this show, no matter if Gus Fring is on it. Why? Because Abrams stole the idea from my pal Randy's 40 minute student film Regression. Before you cry that the two are coincidences, Abram's father helped produce the student film.
Here is a writeup describing the whole story

REGRESSION - YouTube
I'm just waiting for the headline: NBC Pulls the Plug on Revolution...
A series about the geopolitical ramifications of worldwide power loss and an examination of just how quickly our modern society would break down would be a fascinating subject for a tv series, but all that is just shunted to mere set dressing for maniacal despots, magic amulet plots, and poorly choreographed swordplay. So far it's just a piss-poor live action adaptation of Thundarr the Barbarian.
really? are you kidding? the whole industry is built upon stealing other people's ideas. if we boycot every show that rips off, borrows from, or is even remotely like something else, then we might as well not even own a tv.
I said I was boycotting it, I never said you had to. It is close to home for me, I can see why anybody else would not care as you don't have a personal connection to the situation. It is food for thought and insight as to where the show came from. I personally will never watch an episode.
And here I thought I was the only one watching this. IMHO it's not too bad, though there are things I wish they would either stop teasing us with and give more time or just drop ......
How long ago was this made? It was uploaded only a few days ago and I'm sure Revolution took months to film.
I must say though, I watched a bit of Regression and it looks really good.
The show is really good. I'm looking forward to seeing how everything plays out. I heard in an interview that the producers will have the show move at a fairly rapid pace, so if these last two episodes indicate anything, it's going to progressively get better.
Regression is pretty good btw. I'd personally like to see more of that!
That's probably because it's on NBC and they want to get as much of the story in before it gets the ax.
Written and filmed in 2010, released in 2011 when Gerald Abrams had a hand in donations, and computer graphics refurbished thus completing the final version a few days ago attempting to beat Revolution with its airing.
I love the concept of Revolution. The execution hasn't been perfect though.
So far the thing about it that bothers me the most is the female lead. I really hate characters that have no world experience, yet try to tell other characters what to do. There's no reason the uncle should be taking any type of advise from his sheltered niece. I especially find it annoying when they are in a fight for survival and she's complaining about not killing the very people that were sent to kill them.
Other than that, the show is solid for a major network drama. Hoping there will be a lot of surprises down the road.
Shit happens. I still have a script and some concept art to Wreck it Ralph (I didn't call it that though) that I wrote a decade ago, and I should have protected my script. I had voice work done for it, I just needed animators. I was working around a lot of game and film people and sharing the idea. It's almost down to the letter. Mine could be coincidence, though. I'll no more when I see how the movie ends.
He should have at least protected his treatment. It still sucks no matter the outcome.
Aside from that I am really digging the show. More than I thought I would anyway.
you came up with that Wreck It Ralph movie? sue Pixar/Disney
P.S. what was the original name on the script
Think that happened with this week's episode...I like the Uncle and he did spring some news on his niece that she never saw coming.
I'm surprised people actually like this show. Its garbage. I only watched because of Giancarlo Esposito and the main actress is just awful. For once I actually hope NBC cancels a show.
