TV Show Review: Revolution on NBC
Revolution aired tonight on NBC. Lately, good tv shows have been predominately on the cable networks. Revolution is like the Walking Dead a post apocalyptic world just minus the zombies. It seems the world was hit with a EMP – electromagnetic pulse. What doesn’t make sense is the military is also helpless and the world as we know it ends.
The first episode was good, however so was Grimm and that series went to hell in a hand basket really fast! Can Revolution sustain the storyline or will it be the same old story rotating around. Girl and friends run into militia, girl and friends escape militia, girl and friends run into militia again…
What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – has mysteriously blacked out forever. A drama with sweeping scope and intimate focus, “Revolution” is also about family – both the family you’re born into and the family you choose. This is a swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos, “Being Human”), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, “Memphis Beat”). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke, “The Twilight Saga”), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed, and if – or how – it will ever return.
I enjoyed the pilot episode! I hope they keep it up! This could get interesting!
