I liked it. It's nice for a distraction. I can see the potential to go down the Terra Nova route, which I'm hoping it won't.

Seems like fair game to start an ep thread if the ep's available online thru legitimate means.
It's not. You can't start a thread until the normally aired version airs. Thems be the rules.

ETA: You can't start a normal episode thread, I should have said. If you want to start a thread clearly noted for a web or online early edition, go for it.

Yes, I have an "infraction" on my TCF profile.

I'm sorry if this has been discussed, but I just saw my first promo for this show: any reason why guns don't work?

They do. At least, some do.

Judging from the first episode, either the physics that lies behind what works and what doesn't is complicated, or it's all plot-driven.

My guess is that guns work, but manufactured ammo is hard to come by, so they use old muskets as its pretty easy to make lead balls.

Not to be a spoiler nazi, but I don't think show specifics should be discussed in this thread unspoilered, to be on the safe side.

Or start a new episode thread.

But then what happens when it airs on TV? Should there be another thread for the same ep? Will the threads get merged by the moderators?

If those really are the rules, they're kind lame, IMHO. If it's available via early via legitimate sources like Hulu (pirated copies via Usenet and Torrents don't count), to me, a "normal" ep thread should be ok.

I skimmed the rules at http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=271608, but judging by the last edit date, I doubt network shows commonly appeared early on Hulu or networks' web sites in late 2008.

I agree that if a show is available early through legit means, we should be allowed to start a thread for it. The rules were mostly written when this was not an issue, and they should be revised to cover this relatively new scenario. That's much better than having two separate threads for the same episode and having to merge them later.

The only issue is what to title the thread. I'd suggest that when it's created early, the thread title reflect that it is for both early viewing and the date the episode is scheduled to air. Edit: Or exactly how Peter000 did it already. Hadn't been to NPF yet this morning.

Just saw a tweet that Kim Raver (24, Grey's Anatomy) has been added to the cast of Revolution. That's definitely not a good sign, IMO. That just made me a little less excited for this show.

I've got the season pass set. Looking forward to when I can watch it off the TiVo after it airs.

Spoilerized for something read in the fall preview of EW:

Spoiler:
There was a pic of Elizabeth Mitchell and the husband in the days after with the kids. It appears there will be some back story.

Ha.

However, I wasn't saying that because I think she's a show killer. I was just saying it because I think she sucks. Clearly other people don't share my opinion, because she continues to get work.

I watched it via DirecTv's VOD. It is a full episode preview and it looks pretty good. I have set up a SP for it. Would that be considered a legitimate source so we can talk about it in more detail?

There's a thread for that.

Sure, 'cause on Hulu you can't skip the obnoxious commercials.

They maintained it just fine before just fine electricity stopped. These people should have some pride and clean up the city.

Ya know. Some cities in Europe are 1000 years old. Somehow they weren't overgrown no mans lands until they got electricity 100 years ago.

I thought it was pretty obvious why the landscaping was so bad but it's probably considered racist.

Not to belabor the obvious here, but...

I'm gonna assume he was joking, but the central fact of this show (probably not adequately depicted, no matter what they do) is that BILLIONS of people will have died. If there's anyone even left living in the city, taking pride in it is probably not the highest thing on their priority list.

Pre-electric conditions aren't a good analogy, because it isn't the lack of electricity that's most important, but the loss of it -- the abrupt transition away from it in a world that was (in many parts) dependent on it and designed around it. That would take a long time to recover from, even with the best 19th-century technology to draw from. And it seems like even some of that may not work, but I haven't seen the show yet.

Eventually, yes, people could build a relatively advanced, modern and well-run society, at whatever level of technology was available to them. But the show appears to be set no more than a couple decades after the event, maybe less. (?) They're still cleaning up the mess, at best. Maybe still living through the inevitable famines and plagues.

Yea I was going to respond with pretty much what you said but figured he had to be joking after seeing the responses so I just let it go.
