Spoiler alert**********************************









I think they're paranoid about turning the power back on because as they said, "Monroe will control it to build an army to crush all the other republics." Or some such nonsense. I guess the plot point is they have to do it only under THEIR control and only when the time is right to be able to defeat Monroe. Who in the last ep will be revealed to be Zombie Marilyn.

Obviously the electric doesn't work due to one of several things

1. Aliens. Invasion?
2. The sun has moved into an area where the laws of physics are subtly different.
3. Someone upset with over population has come up with a device to end electricity.
4. To be revealed.


What's your guess / prediction?
Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

None of the above. The X-Files never revealed the real truth. This thing will get canceled long before the writers have to think up some BS rationale. Though obviously the brothers knew what was happening ahead of time.

Must say, though, that Tracy Spiridakos is kind of quirky-cute (though keeping her in pants and high-tops is a requisite) and she's a half-decent actress. She's kind of holding things together for now. But if the show's to survive much longer, they're going to have to reveal a lot more of the secrets up front to hold interest. More sci-fi, less Robin Hood!

Ah, thanks guys, always wondered how they did that. By the way, the first ep was filmed in Atlanta but all the subsequent eps will be filmed in...

Has any "expert" on the show said that all electricity has stopped?

It sounds like they're saying only that the "power went out." As if only artificial, man-made electrical products don't work.

And they haven't even had time to explain it yet -- in fact, that's what the whole journey is going to be about: figuring out what happened and why.

I've watched both eps, and I might have missed it, but have they mentioned whether there are any lightning storms anymore?

Well, the weather appears to have gotten screwed up enough to the point where Chicago and its suburbs now have vegetation that looks a lot like eastern North Carolina...

Wait, you're still watching after saying this?

The plot is down right childish. Except for the mystery of how, there's nothing else of interest...


Why? Just so you can continue to complain about it publicly?

I'd rank this new series as "To New To Rate" (TNTR) at this point.

Some of the characters are really tough to relate to, but there's enough happening to keep one's interest. Perhaps another 2-3 episodes will help determine if we keep the series link on the HD DVR here or bail.

Revolution stayed strong with a 3.2 rating on 10/1, helping NBC to the top on Monday. The third episode was down slightly from a 3.5 last week.

However, Revolution was 166% ahead of last year's show in the same time slot (Playboy Club).

I'm continuing to enjoy it with each passing episode. No, not great TV, but good enough to keep a timer going.

Yeah, but that is setting the bar awfully low.

Well I guess I'll start watching again rather than just let them build up on the DVR.
