I wonder why the amulet came on all by itself? Didn't Grace have to push the button to turn it on? And, was the amulet on the table the one Grace had, or the one now belonging to Mr. Google?
Don't they light up when someone else with an activated one is nearby? I thought we saw that last episode.
Yeah, I was waiting for someone to waste him, but he obviously has a connection to our hero, so he survives.
Or maybe not so nearby? Is that how Grace connected with the person on the other end of the computor?
When this occurred, first a huge percentage of people in even smaller cities would die, then the rest would overrun the nearly countryside, and lots of them would die--then you would have dead bodies everywhere plus no sanitation, so another big group of the survivors would get sick and die.... How many years would it take to be able to form any kind of societal organization? I wonder how big an area and how many people are really controlled by this militia? I can't imagine it's huge. The whole idea of reforming the United States does seem really stupid. Forming a democracy instead of a dictatorship, that I can see.
I'd guess that there's a whole slew of militias, most of which don't even control a whole state. I can't see a pre-electric (oops, post-electric) government controlling more than a fraction of a nation as big as ours.
What I've heard is that prop glasses often don't have lenses to avoid the reflection issue. Another technique is to make the lenses so they are perfectly flat on the front (not sure how that helps, perhaps it reduces glare off lights since there's a smaller range of vunerable angles).
They've bascially gone back to a feudal structure. How big was a barony?
Ugh...well, it didn't work. That was SO distracting on Google guy in this ep. Every time he moved his head, those flat pieces of glass (NOT lenses) reflected so much light...curved lenses don't reflect nearly as much.
Reading this gave me one thought - soylent green! Wouldn't canabalism become rampant? Millions of people are dying. No immediate sources of food?
How do they make US flag tattoos? Don't know how tattoos are made but would think modern tattoos require electricity.
Wonder if Monroe is behind the initial cause of the blackout. Seems that he had a bit on unabomber-esque anti-technology bent to him. Remember him and Miles in the car? He was complaining that the young girl he was hitting on would only communicate via text messaging
Loved how the iPhone powered up and the date was September 17th - the exact date of episode 1. Also funny seeing the "Searching
" on the display. Must have been an AT&T iPhone
It was just nice to see that it wasn't being used to make a phone call in airplane mode like some other shows do.
Also the real reason the woman is dragging around an iPhone is because Apple sponsors the show.
After 15 minutes in I realized I didn't care about anyone and deleted the episode and SP. I'm not going to commit to a series I know will be cancelled.
I predict that Giancarlo Espisito's character will begin to have growing respect for Charlie's brother, and will eventually take him under his wing. Some sort of Stockholm Syndrome relationship will develop, and by the time Charlie finally reaches her brother (at the end of this season), he'll be fully involved as a member of the militia. Maybe even directly involved with Monroe.
One of my favorite books is The Stand. The second he said Stu Redmond and Franny I was rolling on the floor. My wife had to ask why.
And yet it was just renewed for a full season...
It shouldn't be cancelled this season since they got an order for a full season yesterday. The ratings are currently very good for Revolution.
Didn't The Event and FlashForward also get a full season ticket?
True, but they also got "retooled" mid-season. That has not happened for Revolution. Could it? Maybe...
As long as they keep getting decent ratings they will be ok. If the ratings start to drop alot then that is another story. But currently it's beating everything in it's time slot by a good margin. (At least in the demographic that matters to advertisers)
The only requirement for a tattoo is some sort of needle and some sort of pigment.
Sure, but an intricate us flag tattoo is certainly going to be a lot more effort.
