5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Ride Into the Apocalypse, October 12, 2013
This review is from: Revolution: Season 1 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Revolution is a story about people. The over-arching theme is a world without power, but the main focus are the characters. Every single one of them is well developed and enjoyable to watch. Even Charlie who tends to get a bad rap from the fans is an detailed character and played expertly by Tracy Spiradakos. The characters banter back and forth makes the sometimes stationary plot seem to move on even if it isn't. The series does suffer from being in a singular overall story of going after Charlie's brother. The individual plot points are interesting as the group tries to save Danny. Many roadblocks pop up with extra emotional baggage for these characters. As they lean on each other they learn more about themselves and the ones they fight alongside.

The characters and their dialogue is well written, witty, and smart. The actors do a great job and every one of them feel very natural in their role. The relationship between Miles and Charlie is the highlight of the series and is perfection. Also the villains and their motives are well done and even understandable which is the staple of a great series. Every character even the villains are given flashbacks that show their life pre-blackout which gives them much more depth than normal characters on Network TV.

This series like JJ Abram's other forays into TV is rooted in mystery. Why did the world suddenly lose the ability to use power is the main mystery in the first season. Many of the questions that are asked in the first season are answered. That is right before a plethora of others are created to keep the second season humming.

The violence in the series is also a high point. Never does it become too gruesome, but it does have a realism that is refreshing in a network series. Miles cuts up guys left and right with that sword and it is always thrilling. The Blu ray itself looks amazing. It is near perfect HD quality with great facial detail and environmental depth. The sound gets the job done and keeps the dialogue crisp and clear. Overall I love the series and it's characters and am enjoying season 2. Please do yourself a favor and at least give the series a try you won't regret it.
