I stumbled by this one in my recommendations and gave it a go. It is another post apocalypse survival tale - and I love them. The plot is someone or something has turned the power off. No more internet no more computers no more life as we know it. Luckily guns still work - phew.

We meet Charlie who has her father killed and brother kidnapped on the same day by the evil leader of Monroe County and his bunch of loyal - if slightly dysfunctional - militia. She has to find her estranged uncle (Miles) and get her bro back. Meantime's she is helped by step mom and Computer geek Aaron. All is never as it seems as the plot gets thicker by the episode and there are real surprises in every episode.

We travel to different parts of the US and find how each county is working differently and life is essentially cheap wherever you go, so being able to kick some bottom (as it were) comes in real handy.

This is a `sit back and enjoy the action' series; but that is only on one level. There is a fair bit more once you scratch the surface and that is one of its real strengths. The acting is all top notch and the action is always guaranteed in nigh on every of the twenty episodes. It is also more addictive than chocolate flavoured beer and I have really enjoyed watching it. There are loads of little things that you can nitpick about, but that would be churlish for what has been a complete surprise for me and a very pleasant one at that - roll on series 2.

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.

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

I very nearly gave up watching this show on several occasions through the first series. Nevertheless, due to a complete lack of anything else on the Sky+ box, we persevered. I have to say that it did get better towards the end. You just really have to make a conscious decision to ignore some of the more ridiculous plot holes, OTT Americanisms and the entire character of Charlie, because as others have mentioned, she is really quite annoying the entire way through. But even though there are some definite bad points, I'm still watching it. So all in all, it's strangely watchable!

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.

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?
