    Anyone else watch Revolution on Hulu plus? I'm looking forward to the 2nd episode already. Don't have internet until we close on our house, so I watched it on my Evo. Will watch it again on my tv on Monday.

    One of just a couple of new ones I plan to record. As usual for me, I will let it 'age' for a time on the DVR before I watch.

    I love the genre so will most likely watch within a day or two of the new airings. Heard people talking about it and was wondering how they saw it already, I thought I missed the first viewing at first until I went through the guide.

    Reset you timers, folks.

    Not a single cliche from post-apocalypse movies was missed in this show.

    Plain characters, predictable plot, average acting. Don't waist your time.

    I think I'll keep it in my timers for a bit. Yeah, the pilot was nothing to write home to mother about, but I liked enough of it to want to give it a chance.

    I saw the first few minutes through Video On Demand. Why is it that when they portray technology going wonky, that it's like a analog TV losing it's signal? It should be putting up error messages, through up random characters or scramble the screen, blue screen, or something, but not like what is portrayed here.

    Ignoring the idea that even battery operated devices fail, and the powerless aircraft falling out of the skys still have their navigation lights working....I liked the pilot. Not very attentive to detail, but a nice break from the political back and forth and endless reality crap of the last 6 months.

    This show got sold on the same premise as Jericho: Minimal SFX, just a bunch of grade C actors walking around or on horseback in the wilderness and some distressed urban blight. Very minimal sets, Some fistfights and some crossbow foolishness. Cheap cheap and more cheap. Migod, even Republic serials had bigger and better SFX than these guys!

    They shot the pilot in Atlanta, GA and the rest of the series in Wilmington, NC. Both right-to-work states, no union. Compare this typical network cheapazoid production with what the "little" guys are doing: Mad Men, Hell on Wheels, Battlestar Galactica, Copper, Caprica, etc etc. Holy cow, the major nets are looking like the cable castaways and vice-versa!

    I liked it and I'll watch, but I'm sure it will follow the same path as other apocalypse series. Death in one season (or less).

    Umm.. *Nothing* can be as bad as Republic Serials. I've had a few of them (for 'Bad Movie Night') over the years and words simply cannot describe the awfulness. I mean, I'm sure that "Revolution" isn't allowing the shadows of the production crew onto the screen.

    Agree.

    One has to wonder how much longer the networks will give JJ Abrams big money to produce these kinds of series...only to watch them fizzle out in the ratings. "The Event" comes to mind. They seem to start out big...and then go away...
