But the uncle looks so hot and buff and Bella's dad look so.....run down!
Series cancelled by episode 6?? For that to happen it's ratings will need to drop like a rock. The Premiere of Revolution gave NBC it's best ratings for a drama premiere in five years. And it was top top drama premiere on any network in three years. And it was also the highest rated 10PM premiere on any network in five years. The Premiere got extremely good ratings.
I dunno, I have never seen the movies, but looking at some Google images, maybe it's the 70's pornstache that makes him not-hot.
Yes, but (to steal DevdogAZ's link)...
So we are not yet at the point where the ratings have anything to do with long-term viability. The show had an awful lot of publicity. It will be interested to see how many people stick with it, and how many feel like they were suckered into it in the first place.
I see the teenage boy is taking the same stupid pills as the kid from Terra Nova. Hope it does not continue.
I said the same thing to a friend. Ugh. In spite of the stupid kid stuff, I really started to enjoy Terra Nova and was sorry to see it go. I hope this show gets better, too...and if it does, I hope it doesn't get cancelled.
Maybe not long term, but both V and Bionic Woman made it past six episodes.
Bionic Woman shouldn't have gotten past the pilot, but it too had a ton of money poured into marketing.
I predict a long successful run for Revolution, my criteria is simple:
JJ Abrams shows I watch get cancelled quickly: Undercovers, Alcatraz
JJ Abrams shows don't I watch have decent runs: Felicity, Alias, Lost, Fringe,Person of Interest.
You can try to convince me it is worth watching, but that would be its death knell.
Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Even though I thought the show was pretty lame, I'm kind of excited to watch it tonight so that I can see if it gets better, worse, or stays the same; then come here and see everyone's opinions.
Wait! How can anyone not like this show? To me, it's up there with great classics like - Terra Nova!
Seriously, I do like this so far, but I also liked TN, and I do see similarities.
I tend to agree, I wish they would make this type of show as a miniseries, with perhaps no more than one season so that there is a definitive begin and end date.
Terra Nova died because it cost way too much per episode? How much does an episode of Revolution cost?
On a side note about the rating of Revolution. It was advertised like crazy the past few months so I would expect the pilot episode to have high ratings. The ratings for tonight will be an indicator if they can keep their audience.
Agreed! If they did that, we could be sure of getting a complete story, and maybe more people would give it a chance.
Good point. I'm sure swords are cheaper than dinosaurs.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
Yeah. But, the candle budget might be a little high for Revolution.
I am guessing the carbon offsets will add to the costs.
Don't you mean gentle, not steep?
I agree that I wish TV networks made miniseries more often. Especially if your story contains a big over the top mystery (The Event, Flash Forward, Alcatraz?) that needs to be answered eventually. With that said not every scripted drama has to be a mini series, but we're getting none at the moment.
I thought I understand the original statement meaning; but, it is not obvious which is correct gentle or steep to mean it is hard to do.
Most places I worked would say it is a steep learning curve to mean it is hard to learn how to do. But, I am not sure right now if that is correct. I realize I have never seen a real learning curve. I have only heard the saying.
What is on the X and Y axis of learning curve?
Edit: This site implies gentle is correct for hard to learn tasks.
Any predictions on the ratings for tonight's episode? Last week was a 4.1 with little competition other than MNF in the East and Central. Tonight it will be against the season premieres of Hawaii Five-0 and Castle, as well as MNF.
As a fan of this show, I'll be very pleased if it gets anything above a 3.0, and will still be optimistic if it's above a 2.7. If it falls much more than that, then then I'll start to be a little pessimistic about its long-term chances.
