Another good episode.
Now let's start all the complaining about it not being realistic.
I haven't even seen it yet, and I'm ready to complain about that.
I think that's a pretty unrealistic attitude.
I am still looking for the first good episode........
This show reminds me of Terra Nova. That's not a good thing.
The iPod turned on and she got to see her kids!!!!!!!!! I never saw that coming.
lol. i was thinking the exact same thing.
Yeah I am still kinda waiting for it to find its footing. The "reveals" are setup like they were on Lost but the music and acting is just not the same it all falls flat. Charley is getting on my nerves, she has lived in a post apocalyptic world most of her life and someone she just meets who is dying on a table makes her cry?
It was established on the first episode that her father sheltered her. She had to sneak away to viiew any of the outside world and that was only for a very short trip. Like she did in the first episode. And her father did not want to make any waves with the militia either so they kept quiet and paid taxes and did what they were told.
I'm actually surprised how well she has done considering she was sheltered. She grew up in a sheltered area and was not seeing dead people or people killed like she is now.
I see the preliminary ratings are in. Revolution dropped 6% from last week but still won it's time slot(18-49 which is what the advertisers care about) with it's 3.2 rating compared to a 1.9 for castle and a 1.9 for Hawaii Five 0.
I'm still watching for now. I did get a huge kick out of Miles introducing himself and Charlie as Stu Redman and Franny. I just started re-reading The Stand on Sunday so that jumped out at me.
So that is where the names came from? I see he also referenced The Shawshank Redemption.
Yes, clearly he's the Sawyer of the show.
That and the Randall "Randall Flagg" bad guy character at the computer lady's door in episode 2. It seems the writers are trying to steal/borrow credibility from previous post apocalyptic stories/authors.
That was what I was thinking as well. I smiled when his name was Randall, but I loudly groaned when Miles gave his introduction. They're trying hard, "HEY AUDIENCE? See??? We know the same references YOU do!"
So that set it all up for me to be disappointed, then the music & phone powering up due to the device pushed me over the edge. On one hand, I'm happy they're doing these reveals quickly, but on the other, it was a REALLY stupid scene.
Remember, I'm the guy who usually defends these things.
My 10-year-old loves the show so far, but loves anything post-apocolyptic or action oriented, or with dinosaurs. He's still mourning Terra Nova, but I told him this morning, don't be too upset when Revolution is cancelled. At least he still has Falling Skies.
I also kept thinking something was missing, then I realized that this is the Walking Dead without the walking dead.
Yeah, I caught that immediately too. Definitely appropriate in a post-apocalyptic story.
I still like the show and will keep watching. I thought the Back to the Future reference was funny (Lone Pine Mall).
He's probably not going to be upset anytime soon - the ratings in the key demo (where Revolution is dominating both Castle and Hawaii:5-0) are going to keep this around for a while.
Revolution has been picked up for a full season. Just announced.
