Well apparently the next episode will try to explain some of the hows. That alone should be fun for some and hair pulling frustration for others.

Wasn't much of a hint, but the coming attraction had the mom getting ready to tell the daughter all she knew on the matter.

It's pretty catchy but I do agree with earlier posts that the group lost a HUGE motive when Danny died.

What, saving the country from a newly equipped Monroe isn't motive enough?

Oh it certainly is, but Danny was the one who was partially responsible for that motive in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I remain interested in the show.

DJ, You should probably cut your losses and move on. This show is about theatrics, not accuracy. If the latter is that important I don't think this show is ever going to be satisfying to you.


It's not so much the accuracy as the VOLUME of inaccuracy. Like I said, I *really* want to like this show. When they finally showed someone resuscitating steam power, *that* was cool!

There are plenty of things that go along with "the willing suspension of disbelief" and it's not just in Science Fiction. Ask any doctor about medical shows or a cop about police procedural shows.

But there's a tipping point. And once that tipping point is crossed, well, it can open the floodgates. Kind of like how a spouse might get "tipped" because you didn't take the garbage out and the argument then spills out ALL the things you did wrong.


An example was during the climax this past week.
<spoiler>
If it weren't for all the other annoyances, I don't think the "jump up from behind cover, fire your weapon, then stand there and admire the results" would have been rantworthy. But, with everything else, it comes out in the flood of angst
</spoiler>

The fact that someone posted that Danny was killed was a MAJOR hint and spoiler.

Again, a little bit of redemption..

Now we have a clue as to what caused the blackout. Although it doesn't explain why the electricity in our bodies is unaffected, at least we have something to go by.

Definitely more plusses than minuses in this week's episode.

Being a sci-fi junkie, I'm kinda enjoying this show. It reminds me of the comic books I read as a kid.

I just hope one new plot point doesn't "go stupid".

Don't tell the writers of "The Planet of the Apes" in whatever sequel that was... :)

I can see no reason to spoilerize that comment.

I had 2 reasons.

1) Just in case someone had yet to watch this week's episode or hadn't watched to the end.

2) I wanted to see if I properly remembered how to use the spoiler tag :)

Yeah, I hadn't thought of "Beneath the Planet of the Apes".

I think most of us would much rather have something setup as a spoiler when it doesnt need to be, then have something not setup as a spoiler when it should be.

Exactly. Besides, anything from a specific episode should be in a thread for that specific episode and not in a thread for general discussion of the show.

Revolution was replaced tonight by coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Does anyone know if they'll re-air it, and when?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

They're saying next Monday so far. We just need to be careful that it doesn't look like a repeat. Might need to manually setup.

Yesterday, epguides showed that they were going to show two episodes on May 6. But now they show that the season will be extended into June.

Interesting they had it on demand. I missed the recording because of the marathon coverage but was able to watch this weeks episode on demand.

If you have Uverse why the hell did you post in a DirecTV thread? And no it isn't on On Demand on D*.
