    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.

    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.

    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/showthread.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.
    Agreed.

    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:

    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.

    So I saw fire. Why can't they make a steam engine?

    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?
