    Has anyone noticed this J. J. Abrams TV post-holocaust show coming this fall called Revolution?

     

    Looks like a massive EMP blast took out all power on the planet. Lots of crossbows and powder blasters.

     

    They say it is directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau.

     

    Looks and sounds interesting. But they show and tell almost nothing.

    Looks interesting. It sure looks like they spent some bigtime cash on this show by the look of it. It would have to get huge ratings to avoid getting cancelled after a few episodes.

    Not seen it yet but im a bit disillusioned with Abrams after the complete BULLSH*T that was the "explanation" of Lost. On saying that I did enjoy Star Trek. But LOST. Tut tut Mr Abrams.

    Has anyone seen this??? Just started watching this and it is pretty good. You've got to leave your brain at the door but that is the same with most things nowadays.

    God help me but I watched the entire 1st season, and will probably watch the new upcoming season next week. Everybody is much too clean, but I've seen worse, I guess.

     

    It ain't no Walking Dead!

    Yeah they should have made it a tad more realistic. Also they are much too pretty, clean and there teeth etc look amazing which I would imagine after 15 years off no dental care would be a bit off a state.

    But on the plus side it is good ol entertainment. Tracy Spiridakos and Daniella Alonso are a joy to watch. I love Miles he's such a badass.

    I actually can't stand Miles. The reason is the way he's written. No matter how dire their predicament, he always has a cute saying to spew. It is too much, and makes it all come off stupid.

     

    Now, every once in while to spout a cute little euphemism...OK. But each and every bloody time?! No.

    That's what I love about him he's so WAY over the top. He's like MacGyver, Rambo, the seven samurai and God rolled into one.
    "There's a famine in the next village" "pass that whisky, I'll piss on it from here"
    Christ he's like our very own Mildred.

    Yeah, I am totally up to date on the show.

    Not caring much for the finding of the long lost son, though. About as lame as Ryan's finding of Dean.

    PLEASE, can one of the writers out there correct that one?!

    Yeah that kinda sucked. I thought it was funny that the Americans were going to Mexico for work, I like the humour in the series. Not too sure about the"Nano Child" angle.
    Its weird how pretty much all the bad guys are now quasi good guys.

    I kinda like the nano child. Seems Halo-ish.

     

    Just saw the new movie LONE SURVIVOR. Amazing!!! Gripping!!! Powerful!!!

    I'm a PS3 guy so can't comment. Quite fancy Lone Survivor, an actual film that isn't a sequel or a remake.
    This series isn't afraid to show blood and gore so I wonder if Miles and Monroe will get stuck into the Yayo when they are down Mexico way.
