NBC’s New TV Show Revolution

I had to wait until this morning to check out NBC’s new show Revolution because I have school until 8:45 pm, but I think it was worth the wait.  The show is a semi-post-apocalyptic setting.  It starts set in “today” but all technology as we know it shuts off.  Everything from cars and airplanes to personal music devices and flashlights.

We then move 15 years in the future after people have adapted to this new way of life.  No one, except for one person (that we know of) knows why the power just shut off.  I won’t go into major detail because I want you to do some digging of your own, it’s more fun that way.  I’ve always been a fan of post-apocalyptic shows, movies, etc. or even ones set in a different type of future like the show Terra  Nova set in the future, but the cast is sent to a prehistoric past.  I’m still slightly hopeful that Fox will renew the show at some point.

Revolution brought me mixed feelings after watching it.  I was a bit let down, because this show features everything that is typical with the genre: Slightly fascist militia, a drunken “nobody” who turns out to be amazing, the super hot chick who knows how to handle herself, but is to trusting, so she freaks out from time to time, a timid male who will probably end up being pivotal to the show and a doctor in the same situation.

However, the show did have awesome action sequences and some questions were raised about who really knows anything regarding the end of technology at the end of the episode.  These are a couple of reasons I’ll give Revolution a few more episodes to truly reel me in.
