Also, I mean I knew this would be a problem going in, but Miles' character really loses some edge when he says lines where he should clearly be swearing but can't because its network tv. I noticed it a lot more this episode than in the pilot.
Also, what was up with the Nate scene(s)? Either I missed something when flipping back to the MNF game, or Charlie just left him cuffed to that pole, and then he was suddenly back during the fight scene against the slave-driving crew, for like...one second, before Miles says something like "hey" and then knocks him out. Unless that was someone else. In which case they still do a really ****ty job of wrapping up that scene where she leaves him cuffed to the pole.
Other shows also had a shaky first or second showing. Then, it was better so hopefully this is the same with Revolution. My kids love the show so far though. Maybe this is the target audience they are depending on - the younger minds.
I honestly felt the second episode was much better than the 1st one. It was more of a plot advancement, but it left much of the corny parts at the door. I like that they're including a good bit of violence, and I think if they can show a dark edge to the whole apocalypse angle the the show can be pretty good.
So I take it that when this blackout occurred, water stopped flowing, wind stopped blowing, and all basic knowledge of chemistry disappeared? I mean, there can't be a windmill? No electrochemistry such as galvanic cells? Its all I could think about throughout the first episode. Well, that and the hot blondie.
This show may just be too ridiculous for me to enjoy....
I would agree with that if they don't specifically mention that exact concept. They said that it was mind boggling because it defied all laws of physics, and the only way it was possible is if it was man made.
Like was said in the original thread, its one thing to criticize them if they fail at explaining it or come with a lame excuse, but its another to just say I can't believe this show so I'm not going to watch it.
