Product Description

Revolution: The Complete First Season (DVD)

In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – has mysteriously blacked out … forever. A grand romantic saga with sweeping scope and intimate focus, this drama is seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), and her brother, Danny (Graham Rogers). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke), a former marine, living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America - all the while, exploring the mystery of why the power failed, and if (or how) it will ever return.

Revolution paints a deep, troubling, and troubled picture of a world without electricity. The great blackout happens in the present, for reasons that no one seems to know. Then, Revolution flashes forward 15 years to the anarchic world left in the blackout's wake. The series has an incredible pedigree--its executive producer is J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias); its creator is Eric Kripke (Supernatural); and the director of the pilot episode is Jon Favreau (Iron Man). And the drama is gripping and absolutely immediate. As the story deploys flashbacks and flash-forwards to try to explain what happened to the world's power--and why--humans quickly devolve into roving bands of militias and rebels. There's a strong female hero, à la The Hunger Games, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), on a quest to find the family she's been separated from. And there are other compelling characters, including Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), a militia leader seeking to consolidate power at virtually any cost. The atmosphere is foreboding, yet absolutely enthralling, and the viewer gets the sense that anything can happen; anyone, even a sympathetic main character, might die. Revolution, one might say, has the power. --A.T. Hurley

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. :-)

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.

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!

In the current glut of 'End Of The World' TV shows, Revolution is right at the bottom of the barrel. It tries to emulate what shows like The Walking Dead do successfully - the loneliness, the despair, the danger, the uncertainty of tomorrow - and completely misses the mark in every respect.

From the pilot onwards, there's an overwhelming sense that we've seen this all before. The characters are drawn from the 'pick any 5' NBC mix-and-match set and lack any depth or personality, to the point where the actors are practically phoning in their performances. As a result, it feels like everyone's playing a game of let's pretend than showing us a window into their post-apocalyptic reality. At least in similar shows, the actors are made to look dirty and worn down - here, everyone's just had a shower, spa treatment and fresh hair cut. I don't believe the world they're showing us.

There are some J.J.Abrams trademarks too that once drew intrigue but as we all got burned by the mysteries going nowhere in Lost, make me wonder if they are just to excite the audience rather than part of any larger over-arching plot. The most interesting part of the whole series was the initial scene where the electricity stopped working and it showed the transformation from today's world to Revolution's dystopia - again, Abrams is brilliant at creating clever 'what if' set ups but increasingly fails to deliver on the promise of the premise.

To be fair, the End Of The World genre is difficult to pull off because of the sheer number of shows on the topic and the high quality of execution in some cases. Still, in such a competitive field this is a pretty lame offering.

I had high expectations for Revolution due to the Abrams connection with the series....unfortunately the series start was disappointing from the story lines to the acting. Revolution had a great concept but the show felt like a cheesy version of Sci-Fi that we have seen too often in recent years.
No edge to the stories and half the characters were just not likeable - or bad in a good way.
Then it clicked. About half way thru the season the show started add some edge and maturity to the storyline and characters.
I actually was looking forward to seeing the show each week.
If you can tolerate the first half of the season then you will be rewarded. AND the second season currently running has gotten even better so catch up and enjoy the series.
I have not watched the DVD so cannot comment on the quality of video/audio or extras offered.
