I think the writers have done a fantastic job of keeping the continuing story lines interesting and the action is very exciting and well done.

Point being, i can accept the many "things" one needs to accept to enjoy Walking Dead, Falling Skies, Breaking Bad, SOA and the like.

This was a promising story. Good actors. But, I personally would have liked to see how our heroes survived during the first days and weeks. The story doesn't do that. It jumps years I believe ahead and things have to be filled in with back stories. My idea of a story is if you are going to tell it, start from the beginning. Let us the reader get to know the good guys, their personalities, weakness and strengths and how they have what it takes to live in the new and brave world. Then go to the new world and let's see our heroes deal with the villains accordingly. You can also do something similar for the bad guys as well. Anyhow, I am purchasing this Summer's Season every week and waiting until the end of Summer so I can watch them though without interruption. If it was something I really liked as in Dr. Who, there would be no waiting. and we would all be scrambling for the best seat to watch the show.

My wife and I totally enjoyed this show. I'm just waiting until the electrical grids in the whole world are shut down. I hope what happens after that occurs in NOT like what happens on this show. But it wouldn't surprise me if it did happen just like this to something close to it.
I think the writers have done a fantastic job of keeping the continuing story lines interesting and the action is very exciting and well done. The characters are intriguing and the acting is sufficient and some better than others, but all in all I think it all works well together. I hope it has enough fan base to keep going for a few more seasons.

Like so many, I was a *huge* Lost fan - until the last episode. The entire run played to our emotions and our intellectual fascination with mystery. The finale took advantage of our emotions, but disregarded our intellectual fascination. (But I digress. This isn't about Lost.) I swore off watching anything touched by Abrams or Lindelof ever again after that.

But it's been a couple of years now, and I've been itching for my next fix. (I can't quit you, Abrams!) I think Revolution might be it. Of course several of the actors/actresses in Revolution come form the Lost cast, but the similarities run deeper and are more satisfying. The story unfolds through "current" (future) adventure, and flashbacks. (No flash-sideways yet!) The segues come complete with the subtle tension from the violin crescendo. Oh, I'm Lost in this show already. The story becomes deeper with every sidebar into a character's past. You can't help but fall in love with each one - even the bad guys. There's mystery and an ever-more-interesting and surprising unfolding of the plot. Only in this case, the new questions to new answers ratio seems to be on roughly even keel. I really get the sense that the writers know their way out of this one. Maybe Revolution won't be Lost to an unsatisfactory ending. :-)

....I wanted to love this series. But as several other reviewers have said, I find myself hung up on the characters' clothes -- the perfectly fitting, synthetic blends -- and appealing appearance -- the well-fed bodies and glamorous dirt streaked across otherwise clean faces. Silly, I know. But still. I am pretty good at overlooking plot holes if I want to enjoy the story. But clean clothes. New clothes. Great bodies. Perfect post-apocalyptic fashion sense. It drives me crazy, and I just can't stop thinking about it. Have stopped watching.

As a fan of the series I have watched the writing and acting improve steadily from the beginning and the finale was not a disappointment. It killed off a core member of the group and opened up the possibility of several new story lines for the next season.

A proper dressing down of this horrible show would take hours. It isn't that it offends, it's that it systematically takes the easiest way out at every opportunity. It always chooses the cheap thrill over real drama. It's characters speak in clichés, opening dialogues with the usual "what do you want me to say, Charlie?" or "if you need to talk" or "fill in your favorite invitation to inane dialogue here". Charlie as just one example behaves so erratically, I feel bad for the poor actress whose task it is to try to make sense of it. She's alternately stridently self-righteous, inexplicably naive, disproportionately bitter, or stone cold hard-ass. Miles is as changeable and irresolute as a sophomore in high school. He makes basic, miliary errors in judgement almost every episode. This is the man who built Monroe's killer Militia? REALLY?! Never mind the Irish Spring freshness of every character. Everybody's got cool clothes that are just sooo stylish. This show deserves to be shunned for being so aggressively stupid that even for a light network program...it's insulting.

This show is so much better than you can anticipate it being. It has everything you want and need in a hit tv show. The cast gel perfectly together and the scenery is absolutely stunning. The blu-ray set looks and sounds amazing on tv. For the price and entertainment, it's a must own set!

There is so much that cold have gone right in this apocalyptic survival series, but sadly, nothing from the writers went right at all. The actors are all believable and pretty good. Too bad the writing isn't.

A good scifi book or movie should do at least two things well: (1) Be about science and (2) Explain any inconsistencies in that science and have believable fixes for those inconsistencies.

A good example of this is Star Trek where we have "warp dive" that can be thousands of times faster than the speed of light. Problem: Taking inertia into consideration, in order for humans to accelerate to light speed and not be squashed to death under the power of inertia, it would take something like 9 months of accceleration to light speed, never mind "warp speed."

So how did Star Trek fix this problem? "Inertial Dampners." We don't know how that would work in real life, but it is explained in the original series, and that was back in the mid 60s. A large stretch, but at least they tried to explain the possibility of humans traveling at higher than speeds of light, and they didn't stray from physics to explain it.

Enter Revolution. Somehow a group of scientist developed a way to make all electrical devices inoperable, unless you have the secret amulet, which is about the size of a walnut.

I've watched half of the season and there is no explanation how any device could be developed that would create a physics that would render electricity unusable worldwide. The writers just skipped that. I guess it was too much trouble to understand some simple 8th grade physics. But ok, I can go with that. I mean science is strange and the more advanced we get the more we see "miracle" science. So I can live with that to a degree.
