    Can't be s bad as the last few can it?

    Good news, J.J. Abrams fans — you're getting a new (and hopefully better received) series from Abrams on NBC! It's called Revolution, and it focuses on a band of survivors making their way in a new world after all of the world's energy mysteriously disappears. And here's your very first shot of the cast standing ominously on a giant staircase. Note the bows and arrows! That trend isn't going anywhere, anytime soon!

    According to TV Line, NBC has picked up this new drama series, which was also crafted by Supernatural's Eric Kripke and directed by Jon Favreau. The show stars the Mustache Dad from Twilight (actor Billy Burke) and Giancarlo Esposito from Once Upon A Time and Breaking Bad (which doesn't really bode well for Esposito's character on Once).

    Sounds like that shitfest Spielberg ER bloke show that was on recently and JJ Abrams Alcatraz is awful, maybe just a blip for him. Hope he isn't starting to whore his name out like Spielberg. I'll give it a watch, do like this sort of thing.

    It turns out they were all dead in purgatory, but wait, purgatory was in the fathers comatose brain, but wait, his daughter brings him back from the dead and out of his coma at the same time with the magical power of love.

    Cowboys & Aliens' Jon Favreau
    Seriously? This is what Jon Favreau is 'known' for now?

    Wasn't there a recent series along the same lines? Post-apocalyptic, communities-struggling-to-survive, heroes fighting for freedom type stuff? Can't remember what it was called for the life of me, possibly because it was quite dull and not worth watching after 1 episode.

    I will give it a try. I just need something to replace the gap that Lost left. (Bar the final season!) I haven't seen Fringe, Alcatraz or Person of Interest so I can't judge him on those.

    Liked Superrnatural and Favreau did a good job with Ironman so on paper could be sweet.

    Though this group of survivors seems to be the same diverse mix that every apocolyptic drama features. (the nerdy one, the big guy, the rugged lead, the sensitive woman etc)

    And yes I taking far too much from one photo!

    But nick, don't you want to see what happens to the rebellious son who rebels against the rational guidance of his rational father, even though it could lead to ultimate demise of the whole family?!?!?!?

    Moustache Dad's moustache could provide the world's energy needs for a long, long time.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    @Red: Quiet you!

    Nick makes a point, I really hope this doesn't become another Tera Nova.

    When is this on? Looks like it's custom made for me.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    The plot is a bit vague, "all forms of energy have ceased to exist". Have none of these TV writers questioned this? How are people still alive if ALL forms of energy have disappeared?

    Oh no. As well as the rebellious one there'll be younger sister(s) or brother(s) who have to be rescued each episode so the family can all learn something. And the dad will be a doctor or a teacher or something.

    Why not play catch up with Fringe? I'm enjoying it (up to the end of series 2, no idea if it worsens from there), my only warning is that t starts slow and formulaic.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    It sounds a bit Emberverse to me. I wonder if gunpowder still works. Steam?

    Fringe is great. Alcatraz was incredibly formulaic but, ultimately, pretty good. Its proper 'monster of the week' TV, but the monster is always completely intertwined with an interesting central mystery.

    The great thing about it was that its pretty straightforward. The leads family were involved in the story but there were no stroppy teenagers, no wishy washy wife, no struggle to maintain a normal life in the midst of all this madness, just a puzzle to solve.

    Basically, none of this kitchen sink shite that is utterly blighting sci-fi at the moment.

    This should be interesting and probably worth checking out. I'm a fan of Alias, Fringe and Lost; enjoyed Alcatraz and Undercovers but not checked out Personal of Interest yet.

    Looking at that poster, and admittedly at the poster only, it looks awful.

    Those posters always make the characters look really unnatural and its always the feet.

    Look at this poster for terra nova:



    NO ONE STANDS LIKE THAT
