Product Description

All 20 episodes from the first season of the sci-fi drama executively produced by J.J. Abrams. Set in a post-apocalyptic world 15 years after all forms of electricity have mysteriously been shut down, the show follows Miles Matheson (Billy Burke), his niece Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and other rebels as they fight back against the powerful Monroe Militia. Sebastian Monroe (David Lyons), the militia general and former friend of Miles, is in the possession of special pendant devices that can activate weapons and machinery, which he plans to use to take over the United States. The episodes are: 'Pilot', 'Chained Heat', 'No Quarter', 'The Plague Dogs', 'Soul Train', 'Sex and Drugs', 'The Children's Crusade', 'Ties That Bind', 'Kashmir', 'Nobody's Fault But Mine', 'The Stand', 'Ghosts', 'The Song Remains the Same', 'The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia', 'Home', 'The Love Boat', 'The Longest Day', 'Clue', 'Children of Men' and 'The Dark Tower'.

Synopsis

In this epic adventure thriller from Supernatural's Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology - computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights - has mysteriously blacked out … forever. Revolution: The Complete First Season is a grand romantic saga with sweeping scope and intimate focus – yet it is also about family – both the family you're born into and the family you choose. This is a swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth, seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as Falling Skies... 31 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
...and that's almost the best thing I can say about this.

It is a pretty good idea, and the Abrams involvement suckered me in. Every so often there's a flash of something great, but these are lost in the endless clichés and moronic 'plots'. My partner and I had some fun predicting lines and events before they occurred, but even we didn't expect to be cheering when the 'heroes' died.

I think some other review commented that Charlie Matheson is THE most irritating character since Jack's daughter in the first season of 24. I was actively rooting for something terrible to happen to her from about episode three.

Tedious flag waving; ridiculous, illogical plots like the subway tunnel that ran out of oxygen (??????), the lack of sailing boats, bicycles, diesel vehicles etc etc. Why does nobody pick up any weapons, and where did the cool crossbow go???

Sigh...

3.0 out of 5 stars Awful but watchable 20 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very holely when it comes to describing the future world. They cast is all clean and shiny. They have lovely, fitted clothes and nice boots (15 years after the factories closed); the militia have time to visit the gym as they are all muscly (yes, today's military do go to the gym, but that's because they have transport - future militia wouldn't have time for the gym, having to walk everywhere); no-one looks hungry or thin. Oh and oddly the wildlife (deers etc) seems to have survived nicely thank you - I would have thought they would have been hunted to extinction as people left the cities.

And then we get the script. "People who stayed in the cities all died". Where did they find the uncle...in the city, which was doing OK thank you. Monroe has been looking for the two brothers for 15 years, but he's obviously not looked very hard because one was within a couple of days' walk of the city they started from, and the other was...in the city.

Guns are amusing too. There is a constant running sub-plot about the lack of guns for the general population. The militia are the only ones allowed to have them. I can see how this might cause most Americans' teeth to start grinding "take away our guns...that's our civil liberties". To the majority of the other nations in the world, they wouldn't really understand how upsetting that is - they would probably shrug and say "law and order maintained in a world of anarchy by removing firearms...sensible idea." To carry forward modern views about weaponry, when everything else (computer programmers becoming farmers etc) has changed, seems stupid.

All that said, it's quite well put together, and the lead characters are strong and generally put in good performances. There's just enough plot (if you smile at the comments above) to keep you bumbling along.

I've watched the season all the way through a few times now and it gets more addictive each time. It's an interesting concept and the story lines are intriguing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rather naive 14 Jan 2014
By Zoska
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is a nice series, but nothing else. I would rather expect it will show just how people (realistically!) adapt to the wholeworld bug, but this is just another fairy tale. Easy watching, though...

4.0 out of 5 stars Revolution 1 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed series on TV much better watching all in one go .Strange seeing B Burke not playing Bella's dad ,also how many of Lost actors turning up in numerous parts.Totally different than anything else on at the moment so am watching series 2 at the moment but hope its not going on as long as Lost ,it's quite violent with just enough romance to keep you interested without being too explicit.

7/10
very interesting idea, 16 years after everything electronic in the world mysteriously stops working. The world becomes almost medievil with guns and is run by malitia.
Tracy Spiridakos in the lead roll of Charlie is the real highlight to the show, she is indeed stunning. Charlie is on a quest to save her brother who has been taken captive by the malitia and gains the reluctant help from her long lost uncle Miles.
At times the story can get a little cheesy, especially some of the sword fights, but it is only the first season and most sci fi shows dont tend to find their feet until the 2nd series and this show has plenty of potential and has cult following written all over it.
At the very least for the male population Tracy Spiridakos is captivating enough to give this show a go, fingers crossed it blossoms into its full potential

5.0 out of 5 stars I disagree 4 May 2013
Format:DVD
Everyone is saying how awful Revolution is. I strongly disagree. A lot of people have gone into watching the series with the thought that it is going to be a brand new idea with no similarities to any other shows. This is however practically impossible as the majority of film and tv show ideas have already been done.

I think that this show is brilliant because it takes a known storyline and changes it around and gives it a new beginning. Ok the actors cast may look like they should all be models, but if you were in an apocalyptic world where you could only grow food, surely you would lose weight too.

If you start watching this show with the thought that it has been done but in a different way, you would really enjoy it. Don't watch it with really high expectations otherwise you will end up disappointed.

On the whole, I really enjoy this show and would happily recommend it to others, :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars A good idea unfortunately wasted
The first episodes seem really cool and involving, but then the actions become repetitive, predictable, boring. The characters are mostly hateful and act in stupid, selfish ways.
