'Revolution' Review: 'One Riot, One Ranger'

10/24/2013 9:38am EDT
I’m not going to bore you with repeated statements about how impressed I am with Revolution’s upgraded performance, but after “One Riot, One Ranger,” I’m now absolutely sure more has happened in the past five episodes than in all of last season’s 22 episodes combined. The action-packed hour not only gave us some interesting intel, but also gave closure to the split group storyline by reuniting all of our main characters for the first time since May (recall that we began the season with everyone already split, hinging on flashbacks to show us exactly what went down that caused Charlie to str...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Patriot Games'

10/17/2013 10:27am EDT
I’ll start by being completely honest: Revolution is not my favorite show, but it’s worlds better than it was last season. More importantly? The program is finally, finally, finally getting on track to be what it should have been all along. (Remember how I pointed out that things were getting progressively darker? Apparently now we’ve gotten to the point where we have to put up one of those violence warnings. I’m not sure why NBC decided to move the show to an earlier hour only to have it be ten times more graphic than it ever was last season, but I also don’t claim to understand the inner ...

'Revolution' Review: 'There Will Be Blood'

10/3/2013 8:50am EDT
Revolution continues its revamped second season by picking up where we left off last week, with Aaron waking up after being mysteriously revived. It seems like this is going to be one of the bigger ongoing plot lines, and as much as some people might think it’s a bit “hokey” I actually find it interesting – we’re not only giving Zak Orth a storyline with potential, it’s also one that’s big enough to involve other characters (case in point, we see a bit more of Rachel’s uneasiness and guilt as Aaron tries to reconcile his resurrection.) While Aaron believes that his revival is due to the nan...

'Revolution' Season 2 Premiere: 'Born In The USA'

9/26/2013 9:55am EDT
Revolution has had an interesting journey.

The post-apocalyptic series premiered last fall with a promising cast, intriguing concepts, and skilled show runners – all the right ingredients for everything that equal buzz and success. But Revolution’s first season was plagued with misdirection; some good episodes balanced out by not so good ones as well as muddled storytelling. Often, its actors were the saving grace of an otherwise bland hour, and a mid-season setback in the form of a four-month hiatus didn’t help matters.

When we sat down with EP Eric Kripke at Comic Con, he revealed his a...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Children Of Men'

5/29/2013 3:55pm EDT
Revolution - Season 1
In the first of its final two hours, Revolution delivered on most of what it seems to have been promising all season – lots of action, character development payoff, and answers to questions that we just couldn’t seem to figure out. In fact, the hour was wrought with so much action that it makes us wonder if the show left us anything for its final episode, save for an inevitable Monroe/Miles showdown and a final battle towards turning the power back on – which, as we now know, could result in either success…or death. For some time, we’ve wondered how Revolution would move towards its next se...

'Revolution' Recap: 'Clue'

5/21/2013 3:21pm EDT
Revolution - Season 1
With two episodes to go in Revolution’s first season, time is moving fast. Maybe too fast. While “Clue” benefited from a good pace and decent use of most of its cast members (something that I feel has been wavering from episode to episode) it also seemed a little rushed, as if the show was trying to cram in as much as possible in the third-to-last hour. With Monroe now setting up camp at the The Tower (the basis of where we’ve been trying to go all season) Miles and Co. on their way there via helicopter, and Rachel and Aaron finally enacting their revenge plan, it looks like we’re headed to...
