It seems like this show is getting the most attention in the general TV thread. Some of it even good! I liked last week's pilot episode enough to stick around for at least another month of episodes. Hopefully this is one of those shows that grows in quality each week, which will mean I'll stick with this one to the end.
Last week's episode got good ratings, so that's a good sign. From this article:
NBC’s Revolution was televised — and more than 10 million people watched, setting a ratings record for the network.For those who missed last week's debut, here's info about the premise from the show's wikipedia entry:Though Revolution was down a bit from its Voice opening act, a 4.1 is a great number this time slot — particularly on NBC. According to the network, this is the biggest broadcast TV drama premiere in three years on any network (since ABC’s V in 2009) and the biggest drama premiere on NBC in five years (since Bionic Woman in 2007).
If you missed the premiere from last Monday, here are links to the networks airing the show in the U.S.A. and Canada:Revolution takes place in a post-apocalyptic dystopian future. Fifteen years earlier, an unknown phenomenon disabled all technology dependent on electricity on the planet, ranging from computers and electronics to car engines, jet engines, and batteries. People were forced to adapt to a world without technology. Due to the collapse of public order, many areas are ruled by warlords and militias. The series focuses on the Matheson family, who possess a special device (resembling a flash drive) that is the key to not only finding out what happened fifteen years ago, but also a possible way to reverse its effects. However, they must elude various enemy groups who want to possess that power for themselves.
