Revolution S2Ep20 Tomorrowland Review

It has been a while since I last posted a review of Revolution. The show has seen a remarkable improvement in quality during its second season. However, a 22 episode season is also far too long. The second half of season 2 saw the storyline slowing down and becoming repetitive. Only now that we are moving towards the season finale is it moving forward again. Season 2 also suffered from the lack of intriguing villain. Somehow, despite the mean cruelty of the Patriots they lack… well, epicness! There is nothing like seeing David Lyons as General Monroe ordering his helicopters airborne to...

Revolution S2Ep5 ‘One Riot, One Ranger’ Review!

Revolution seems to be on a winning streak as of late. I personally had my doubts whether the ‘patriots’ would be any good as antagonists but so far season 2 has not disappointed. This weeks episode ‘One Riot, One Ranger’ is very effective in increasing both the scope of the Revolution’s universe as well as in furthering the character storylines. Just as in previous weeks I will deal with each group of characters separately. Though when I say group it is down to two as Monroe and Charlie managed to get to Willoughby. Where is Walker Texas Ranger when you need him?...

Revolution S2Ep3 ‘Love Story’ Review

With this weeks episode, ‘Love Story’, Revolution continues to improve in quality. The show keeps handing out some hard punches but at the cost of a very fast past that sadly causes us to lose a character that was only recently introduced. As explained in the review of the previous episode Revolution has now been divided into three main storylines. I will briefly explain the events of all three. Rachel, Miles and Aaron; this is still the ‘main’ storyline. Last week Aaron got resurrected by the nanites (presumably) and Miles got captured by the gang/army led by a rather colorful man called ‘Titus’. This week...

Revolution S2Ep2 ‘There Will Be Blood’ Review

Revolution is one of those shows that everyone at times seems to love to hate. Season 1 for that matter got a lot of flak. Despite being a Bad Robot productions series it hardly lived up to the quality of other shows such as Lost, Fringe and Person of Interest. Instead it came closer to Alcatraz in that it wasn’t bad but it felt rushed. Revolution certainly does feel rushed, or at least its first season did. I myself wasn’t a Charlie hater though I did see problems with her role in the series. Instead I tuned in to General Monroe, Major Neville...

Revolution ‘The Song Remains The Same’ Preview!

Revolution ‘The Song Remains The Same’ Preview!

Tomorrow the thirteenth episode of Revolution will air. Since the return of Revolution after it’s hiatus fans have received one dud episode and one that was above-average but suffered from some sloppiness. Last week’s episode (Ghosts) certainly set the stage but suffered from improbable knife fights and characters doing things for no obvious reasons. Early indications are that tomorrow’s episode will certainly up the ante. By the looks of it Major Neville will be captured by the resistance and Rachel is set to explain why the blackout occurred. There is also something with a nuclear bomb but I won’t write more less I should spoil too much. Despite...

Revolution ‘Soul Train’ Preview and ‘The Plague Dogs’ Review!

The fifth episode of Revolution is called ‘Soul Train’ and by the looks of the previews pictures and trailer it is going to push this series into a higher gear, the previous four episode are thus no more than an introductory to help set the story and the world of Revolution. Last episode of course saw the death of Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips) which the shows creators readily admit was a blatant attempt to create drama and show that the world of Revolution is not Terra Nova with its cute dinosaurs. Personally I think that drama isn’t Revolution’s major worry,...
