    Revolution

    Premiered last night. It's the new show from Eric Kripke and executive produced by JJ Abrams.

    I thought it was eh fair. Not bad, not good but has some potential. I'll probably watch next week to see where it goes and decide whether it earns another week. Kind of a disappointment with Abrams name attached but I guess it can't be worse than "Alcatraz"

    Anyone else watch?

    I watched the pilot which was put online to gage crowd reaction a week ago. Good premise and I like some of the actors. I will be watching it weekly. However, it would not surprise me to end up canceled.

    I didn't watch because it doesn't seem like it will last beyond 6 shows. I hate when that happens.

    Unless there's an alien or supernatural aspect....what's this show about? All of a sudden the lights turn off and they have to find out why?

    It didn't seem very "all of a sudden" that lights turned off, it was clearly intended by a group of people. This show, in my opinion, has a similar feel as Flash Forward, unfortunately I don't think it will get the right amount of time to tell it's story, just like FF. Either way I'll be watching for the time being.

    Being on NBC won't help it's chances. That network's a wasteland right now.

    I think I might check it out, but I have a hard time getting interested in shows that look like they may not last.

    Man I loved Flash Forward. It definitely deserved a second season

    Well you put 3 guys in Favreau/Abrams/Kripke together you would think the show would be good, right?

    Series premiere was tonight and I liked it, its been getting mixed reviews all over the web, but I think the show has a lot of potential. Now I may be biased in being a fan of Kripke's work, mainly for writing Supernatural, but you pair him with the other two guys I think it will succeed.

    Now based on tonight, I think there are a few groups out there in the world who know what happened in regards to the blackout 15 years ago. A few people know, including the dad who was killed but his friend holds usb with information on it about the blackout, gonna be interesting to see how it pans out. I thought the fight scene was pretty good last night, and they didn't hold back on the gory stuff, I mean for the most part they did, but at some points you did see a guys stomach slashed or a guys throat cut, overall though I thought it was pretty good. Definitely has an interesting story line to it, and with Abrams, you never know what he can do.

    I'm gonna give it a chance and hopefully it does well.
