Shocked to see some of the opinions of NBC in this thread as it is a major part of my TV watching experience.

Not sure why anyone is surprised. It's an annual ritual...

Fall comes and networks throw out a bunch of new programs like spaghetti on a wall to see what "sticks". NBC seems to be reaching for some of the same kinds of marginal topic programming found on other networks.

Some stink and some "make it" further to survive.

Make it 3 and counting. I could only stand 14 minuets of "Revolution". Too much over acting, corny scene music and exactly what caused the power to go off? IMOP networks trying to cash in on the whole "Walking Dead" thing. Which is a great show btw & can hardly wait for the new season to start on Oct. 14!!!!

While I wouldn't call Revolution great, it is very watcheable depending on how it develops. I'll give it a few episodes to jell.

Isn't that part of the mystery of the show? I don't think that is something you are supposed to know in the first episode.

To me, it's more of a MacGuffin than anything. Will have to see how it plays out.

Well, whatever their "answer" is for 'why', you have to take into consideration that SOMETHING changed the *laws of physics*. That eliminates a lot of possibilities and asks so many more questions...

I thought Guys w/ Kids was decent for a pilot ep, haven't seen Ep 2 yet, but I know having Meadow Jamie-Lynn Sigler to watch makes it easier to give some time to develop...

The endless self-conscious gay gags get old fast. Very shallow, one-dimensional. And Ellen Barkin is excruciating. This is yet one more new network show which hard-sells multi-racial relationships, gayness, political references, and extreme obnoxious behavior at us and expects us to laugh uproariously at the pure bold radicalness of it all--"See, we're just as edgy as CABLE!" To which I say...:new_sleep

Watched both Guys with Kids and New Normal - blechh! Neither funny, neither worth a timer.

And unlike most shows, I killed the series links while watching the first episodes.


I heard ads for them on local radio stations & said to myself more junk.

Enjoying AT 250 HBO,

IF Rev. is trying to cash in on zombie stuff, which I don't see, that's show biz.

Anyone looking for some amusement in zombie stuff should find "Shaun of the Dead" a hoot. It was filmed in 2004, and is set in London. Simon Pegg stars.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.
