    But surely Revolution won't be based on S.M. Stirlings work?

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

    Are you saying it is officially based on the Emberverse?

    Seen the first episode - MEH! I was mildly intrigued by the last few seconds, that's about it.

    I watched the first episode on demand, and I actually quite liked it. The episode moved along at a fairly quick place, and the characters at least seem somewhat interesting. The main character is a teen (18 I think) and there is another young character, but they are not whiny and angsty like the kids on Terra Nova. The show is also surprisingly violent for network television.

    Spoilers of what I gathered from watching it:

    The premise seems to be that it is now impossible to generate electricity, but not that all forms of energy ceased to work, as had someone had stated previously. The McGuffin seems to be some kind of device that allows electrical devices to work when placed in close proximity to the device, suggesting that there is some kind of active force that is acting against the electricity, and this item counter-acts it. It seems that there is apparently some way to turn the electricy back on, everywhere.

    I'll admit that I am fairly tired of post-apocalyptic fiction, but this show does at least look promising to me.

    Yeah, watched this last night and I was cautiously impressed. Gus from Breaking Bad was a touch more cheesy in his new maniacal role, but as long as he's in it I'll probably continue watching.

    Loved it!
    Sure, it's not The Wire or even Game of thrones. But as a weekly entertainment it has potential.

    Yeah I liked it too, took me while to figure out the Gen Monroe bloke was the cocky Dr from the last few seasons of ER minds lol. But it moved along at a good pace.

    Interesting article here with Eric Kripke:

    You know that wasn't half bad. I enjoyed it, moved along at a good pace. Didn't instantly hate someone. Aside from their perfect tight clothes, it was pretty good.

    So, shit then.

    Yeah, the fact that the dad gets shitkilled in ep1 really sets it appart from that tired old trope.

    Just watched it and didn't like like it. I was predicting everything that was going to happen and was right all the way to the end. It's also bothering to see everyone pretty and clean in a "post apocalyptic" world.
    I'm already feeling bad for Elizabeth Mitchell but maybe Favreau and Abrams will prove me wrong (I doubt it).

    Also, where did Monroe find ice cubes? :D
    I guess the final scene answers that but it was odd.

    Yes, episode 2 was definitely a bit of a nosedive.

    Too many swordfights as well.

    Given that the militia seems to consist of about five people how have they managed to get rid of everyone's guns?

    More importantly how does everyone's brain still work?

    Lastly, I am gay, disabled, and a liberal.

    You don't need electricity to make that.

    Second episode and you can see this show is almost certainly going to go nowhere, Charlie's mum being alive was such a surprise wasn't it? No it wasn't. Also I don't care even if you can turn electricity back on again, there's no way a Huey (already an elderly aircraft now) is going to fly again after 15 years of no maintenance, even if it is in such good nick for some reason.

    So the USB necklaces are obviously not only good for data storage but also appear to be able to locally counteract the force that's stopping electricity from working. The best way to make use of this is to have a cattle prod as a weapon...

    How did this show get commissioned?

    Oh and ha-ha having the ex-Google bloke having an AC/DC t-shirt on, wow how meta of them!

    Also, whi didn't she just use her SILENT crossbow all stealthy like, instead of wandering up to the guy on the horse and shoot him with a gun?!?

    It's just too daft for words, but MrsBob is loving it. :(

    Episode two was ... euhrmm... a bit crap wasn't it?
    I think I'll stop bothering with this. Comes out on the same day as Castle, so I'll watch that instead. (although their first episode of the season was a bit disappointing as well).

    Stand out facepalm moments for me were, as mentioned, the crossbow she keeps lugging about but doesn't use and uncle Timmy getting cuffed, then taking out all the people in the party that cuffed him but running off without the keys for said cuffs, so they have to try and pick the lock on his cuffs.

    Seems like it's a load of people wandering between places, sneaking up on each other, then either having a) dramatic conversation or b) swordfight. If I made this, it'd be The Road The TV Series and everyone would be eating each other.
