I watched this entire series on tv lastyear and loved it that much i am going to be buying the box set, its a very interesting show, good plots, twists and outcomes. I enjoyed watching each character grow and the show would give you flashbacks of before the blackout happened to show each characters story and background, all the leading characters are stand out amazing, you wont ve disappointed its a must see and season two is showing online and on sky right now

This series has the makings of a long term excellent show, that I hope will be renewed and continue for years. The power is off, but why? And can it ever return? These are the questions that the show is working towards answering and the character relationships that develop along the way are also excellent.

Absolute tripe, civilization stopped 15 years ago but apparently hair stylists, beautox, fashion retailers and cosmetic dentistry all survived the great blackout, amazing!!!!

I liked the trailer for this DVD, it looked and sounded good. Basically, something happens and all power is lost to mankind, no electricity, no power at all, governments fall, militias rise up and man kind goes backwards way. The story is set 15yrs after' the power has gone out ' (thats what they call it) it focuses on a various people and their individual stories and how their lives interconnect. They flashback in episodes to just after the power went out start to give the reason it happened and why and also you start to see how they hope to get the power back on again. This all sounds good and in theory it should be a good DVD, but I found it so silly! I know it's Hollywood but really! The actresses have had their hair highlighted and tonged, ( without electricity?!!!) Also the Monroe militia have perfectly sown matching coats don't tell me they were all hand sown?!!! Also the militia have computer printed maps of the areas they control after the power went out when no computer could have printed them! Oh dear, I could carry on and on with silly mistakes. I have to say I haven't watched it all yet as the episodes all got very much of a much-ness, more or less the same old thing every episode. Lots of silly fighting, with the main characters and their porcelain veneers!!!! Big joke.

I now understand that JJ Abrams cannot produce anything with meaning. This is another conceited attempt to tell us how good/evil we are and that,with the right direction, we can find salvation, hallelujah. Much has been written about the poor character development, shambolic script and embarrassing production values but this doesn't work because nobody who has lived on this planet could believe the direction this world takes. It is not dystopian rather it belongs in a kind of Harry Potter universe (which it shamelessly namechecks) in which people are constantly flashbacked into life and the living pass for energised zombies.

We cease to care and the racial stereotypes and deaths in this reminded me of a modern Birth of a Nation. How many Uncle Ned's and Aunt Jemmima's can you have in one serious. Why do nearly all the characters of colour have to die? Give it up JJ.

Nice idea, shame about the execution.

I'm not going to elaborate further on the points made by other reviewers (such as the lack of realism in the setting & the actors' appearance) - Other than to underline how truly dreadful the acting and scripting truly is. I started to watch this after I realised that 'Gus Fring' (Giancarlo Esposito) from the truly outstanding 'Breaking Bad' series was starring in this, little was I prepared for a show that was so utterly shambolic, I'm really struggling to put words together. Agree, it is a 'good idea' - But without any really convincing characters, and utterly dreadful script writing there was nothing to hold my interest past 5 or 6 episodes, the majority of which I had to force myself to watch, waiting for the hidden depth to emerge. It didn't. Nor will it. Cynics will claim I didn't give it time; I will assert that no matter how much time I gave it, the actors will not improve their craft, nor will the daft story-lines improve.

There are clearly a number of nods towards Stephen King within this show, but whereas he (in a similar way to Breaking Bad, or indeed the similarly excellent Game of Thrones) would craft interest and tension from a slowly building storyline, 'Revolution' is in too much of a hurry to move things along; Characters captured & escaping multiple times in an episode feels like over-eager story-writers trying to make up for inability to create any depth in the characters, and situations they encounter.

It's clearly popular with some - I can respect the views of others, after all we're just here to share opinions. But this really wasn't for me - If you like shows along the lines of The Wire, the aforementioned Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Game of Thrones et al - This one is probably best left alone.

Oh, they've been captured, no wait, they escaped, or have they been captured again?

Terrible plot holes so obvious that a 5 year old should be able to spot them, the most absurd example, without giving too much of a spolier away, is one which the whole episode is based around, the group enter an old train subway system, miles of huge tunnels connecting dozens of stations, yet as soon as they enter this system the tunnel behind them ends up being blocked, within a couple of minutes they start experiencing hullicinations which is apparently down to lack of oxygen. Seriously how ridiculous is this?

This could have been a very good series, if the future series are tightened up and more intelligent plots and story lines then it would be 5, but like most new series it needs to find its feet still. if you watch this without engaging a brain cell to think about what is going on then yes give it a 5 stars, but for me its 2 at best.
