Terrible writing; lead actress can’t act
Verified purchase
I wanted to like this show. The premise is awesome. But the writing and ridiculously stupid situations the characters put themselves in are too much to take. This is one of those unimaginatively concocted shows whose plot is driven by the stupid mistakes made by the characters, things no real person would do. For example - ***spoiler alert*** - when a woman wants to blow up someone in a tent, instead of rolling the grenade in and ducking for cover, she *walks in* and announces herself, giving her targets the opportunity to disarm her and save themselves. Totally, unbelievably stupid. ***end spoiler*** Honestly, the Walking Dead , zombies and all, is more believable than this.

Also annoying is the one-dimensional and hard-to-look-at female lead, whose single facial expression and terrible acting make me sure that she’s either related to a studio exec or did some time on the casting couch (I know how that sounds but seriously, I can’t think of any other reason to give her this part.)

This is an okay show if you don’t care about having an emotional investment in stuff you watch, kind of like a high tech roadrunner coyote cartoon.

CHECK YOUR DISCS - unknown smudges hard to remove
Verified purchase
(Pics are of my replacement order) I ordered season one of Revolution and noticed the Disc 5 had really bad smudges on it that I could not get off, so I ordered a replacement. SAME thing on this disc! Also the case looks like it was wet at some point. I don't know if water got into it or if they cleaned it and didn't let it dry or what, but this is really annoying. I tried using a microfiber cloth (like you would use to clean your glasses) to remove it but it didn't work at all, even with water. I managed to get it off this time with windex and a paper towel (which you are not supposed to use on discs) so hopefully it works. I haven't tested it yet. 2 stars just for lack of quality control, since that's EXTREMELY important with this type of product. I also ordered Season two of Revolution and had no issues with it.

What happens when all of the worlds electricity goes out ?
This is the premise of NBC's short lived TV series, Revolution.
I must admit I am a bit biased as I have always had an interest in the subject matter.
The show starts off slowly as we get to know each character and what they did in their previous lives when there was electricity.
All governments around the world have collapsed including the one in the United States being replaced by marauding gangs and semi governments in different regions on the United States.
It is here at the " Monroe Republic " that we are introduced to Sebastian Monroe and his ruthless ambition to expand his dictatorship at any cost.
As the story unfolds we learn how and why the power went out and the unforeseen consequences of this and those who were responsible for it.
I highly recommend this TV show for it's great writing, direction and acting if you enjoy Sci-Fi combined with action and the human psych.

The show is addicting
Verified purchase
The show has been steadily improving IMHO. At the beginning it seemed like when the lights went out suddenly it was 1870. I am sure it would be easier to build a musket with forge and a lathe but the tech to build a AR-15 is nearly the same. That problem holds true for many of the mechanical things in the show. However the story is well told and I was able to forget about the lack of engineers (really don't want to go to far with this complaint). I loved that the big reveal came in season one, kudos for not holding out on what caused the power failure. Now the writers are free to go boldly into..... guess we will just have to wait and see but I have high hopes. Not too high but the potential is there.
There is another problem that I feel I must address. I hate it when people give a show or product a bad rating because of shipping failure ect. you know what I mean. There were many problems watching this series. I did not make it through even one episode without having the feed stop for an extended loading period usually multiple times. I restarted more than once, maybe I was impatient but it was very aggravating. I checked multiple times to see if Netflix had this show to no avail. I am not sure what caused this problem. A streaming video I paid a premium above my yearly fee for should work better than this. I feel like I am paying to see shows on my schedule without commercials. I am fine with that but not at all fine with the terrible feed. I hope someone at Amazon video will address this problem before I have to look elsewhere for content.

Good Premise, Okay Action, Slow Start
Verified purchase
Okay, the premise was great: Something, no one knows for sure what yet, has taken out everything electrical. That means most technology is gone, or at least, unusuable. Then it sets up a possible conspiracy, then we jump into the future. Much of the story is told via flashbacks, which doesn't make me happy, but it works all right, I guess.

There is a ton of 'action' in this, like sword fights and that type of action. It gets a little old, in place of storyline. The acting isn't horrible, but the characters haven't gotten comfortable with themselves yet.

The biggest complaint I have right now is that episode after episode, I keep waiting for something to happen. The storyline just isn't moving forward very fast. I want to like this series, I really, really do, but the first season is just really slow. I'm hoping the writers will pick things up in the next season and we'll see more development of the storyline. I realize it's a series and some things and mysteries need to be drawn out, but sometimes, something need to happen to keep people interested. It's just dragging for me right now.

Looking forward to the finale and then seeing how things shape up next season. But all in all, it's a good start to an interesting premise. If you're looking for a good series to pick up from the beginning, this one might be worth considering.

Has potential
Verified purchase
Let me start this review by saying that I enjoyed the Pilot episode enough to purchase a pass on Amazon Instant Video for the entire season. The premise here is pretty simple: through some unknown mechanism, all electrical power becomes inoperative, apparently all over the world. America quickly collapses into near anarchy, with warlords establishing fiefdoms maintained by force and tyranny. The people live at an 18th century level, if that. It is not known why electrical power has stopped working, although there are hints that some technological cause lies at the root of it all.

Naturally, there are some inconsistencies in the pilot. First of all, somehow all the women in this new America all look like gorgeous Hollywood actresses. Well, they are, I guess. One might expect that the people would look more like actual 18th Century pioneers, i.e. wrinkled, not particularly clean, hard-bitten, but no. They all look like they just stepped out of a beauty salon. Well, most of us would rather watch a series full of gorgeous women, I suppose. That's what this is.

Setting aside the inconsistencies, the pilot has a solid storyline that held my interest and left me wanting more. I am hoping that this series lives up to its potential. RJB.

NBC Slap Yourself!
Verified purchase
If the world ever goes bye bye I hope I don't have Charlie as my back up. She is such a 2D regurgitation of a 1950 B movie. JJ give her a backbone and put some darkness into her as if her world has just ended around her. The way her part is written now it is as if she is undergoing teenage/bipolar mood swings of someone running for high school homecoming queen. This is no [[ASIN:B001OKJU5G The Postman]] or [[ASIN:B0049P1VHS The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season]] It is just that the writers are mailing it in and the actors appear to be walking around dead.

**********************************************************************************************************************************

Okay, I have watched the whole first season and I'm changing my stars from one to three. All the characters, except one, are growing and appearing believable. There is less focus on Charlie, which means that my stomach is not heaving on me as much, but I still find myself yelling "shoot her! For all that is holy someone shoot her!" every time a gun is pointed at her. I now give three stars and am looking forward to season two. None of anything I just said has anything to do with my daughter telling me that if NBC Cancel Revolution, when I get old she will put me in the nursing home investigated on CBS's 60 minutes.

Verified purchase
What would you do if all the electricity in the world suddenly was turned off? Forever. Exactly! This TV series certainly tested the human spirit by.turning everything off. Everything. But the question is why? Open a window, dust your furniture, see the dust, the little particles in the air? Revolution is about the world trying to re-adjust to the darkness, and politically speaking, everyone was trying to be the first in line so they could see. In a matter of speaking. Only a few people knew about those particles.That was the enemy.The invader. And they lived inside the electricity. For us, humans to survivor we had to turn off the electricity so the enemy could not live.
