    I will check it out but I do not expect much and doubt very much this thing will last more than a season.

    I feel like such a nerd - I got the new tv guide this week with the previews of all the new shows and programmed my tivo for all the ones I want to try. I'd feel even more pathetic if I weren't so eager for the new shows.

    I watched the Coma miniseries this weekend. zOMG it was SO terrible! Not even so-bad-it's-good, just bad. the writing, the direction, the props budget - they must have blown their budget on landing Ellen Burstyn (who was the only good thing about the series - and she was GREAT), Geena Davis, James Woods and Richard Dreyfuss, because everything else about the production was cheap.

    Geena Davis is now married to a plastic surgeon, and I'm sorry to see he's been experimenting on her. A lot.

    I already saw the pilot for Revolution - wish tonight had the 2nd ep already. Maybe I'll watch it again though. I really like it - in the same way I really liked The Event and FlashForward, so my best hope is that they let the show finish the season when they cancel it next month

    You're not alone. I do the same thing every year! I love this time of year when you can sample a bunch of new shows and fervently hope that a few will hook me!

    Yeah, I read similar reviews on imdb. So I didn't feel the least bit disappointed when I missed recording the 2nd part (I had assumed it would air a week later, but apparently it was the next day). That's 4 hours of my life I didn't waste! But I feel for those who did ... ((genevieve))

    Like I say, I didn't have very high hopes anyway. When was the last time A&E had any decent "original" programming?

    My favourite must-see-TV show comes back tomorrow night: The Rick Mercer Report.

    And as a preview, he (Rick) was on Peter Mansbridge One-on-One yesterday, and will be the inagural guest on Strombo's new 7:00 half-hour show tonight. You can't have too much Mercer IMO.

    OK, I'm intrigued by Revolution and will definitely be watching again next week although there wasn't enough Elizabeth Mitchell in it for this fangirl, LOL

    Is her role recurrent, i.e., is mom not really dead?

    They keep saying that she's only going to appear in the flashbacks but they actually recast this role because they were able to get her for it and said that things changed once they did that so I have NO idea if the mother is really dead or not. Wouldn't surprise me if she's out there somewhere and a key to the whole mystery. Why do you hire Elizabeth Mitchell for a role if there's not something awesome about it?!

    Wiki described her character as "Is said to have died in the fifteen years........."

    I wondered then if she was still alive somewhere.

    you can never have too much Elizabeth Mitchell

    I feel bad for the original actress though. "thanks for playing, but we got the actress we actually wanted now kthxbai"

    The only thing that kept me going on Terra Nova was cheering the dinosaurs on to devour each and every one of the vastly stupid homo sapiens. Oh, Revolution, how I wish they could be transported to your domain. It is one freckle-faced urchin short of being unwatchable.

    I have to admit that at one point I thought, "PLEASE don't let this be one of those 'stupid people doing stupid things' shows". Surely after 15 years, the herd would be weeded out of most of the stupid? But there are a few characters that give me hope. Plus the two young males are so extraordinarily handsome that they will keep me around for at least a couple of extra episodes (than other shows might).

    By the way, what does everyone think about the show being centred around Chicago? All these people have remained in this spot because of it's mild winters where one simply needs to throw an extra log on the fire to ward off that slight chill in the air?

    I love how everybody loves her. I'm hoping hubby gave her all the info she needed as a safeguard, then they faked her death. She will end up being the leader/saviour of the world. All hail Queen Elizabeth!

    Chicago seems to be popular with tv writers right now - Mike & Molly and Happy Endings are also in Chicago.

    But lol about the winters. I can see Minnesota (where one assumes the village might have been, since they passed through O'Hare before getting downtown) perhaps for the fishing and foraging.

    My beef, other than some of the bland casting and not great acting, was that everyone had to have a million torches and candles on. Unless they're all saving fat to make candles but the bulk, and have found a magic kerosene source, you'd think they'd conserve a little, no?

    My biggest problem with Revolution was the actress playing Charlie. Girl can NOT act. Plus giving her perfect hair and clothes doesn't make any sense. Can't they put her hair in a ponytail to make it half way plausible. Or give her some split ends!?!

    And I totally think they left it open for the Mom to be alive and the key to getting the power back on.
