I'm torn... on the one hand, I find the idea of a world suddenly without power intriguing, and I love the sets/CGI used to portray how the landscape has physically changed. The characters are likeable too. I watched the first eight episodes within a couple of days, as I was hooked.

On the other hand, I'm on episode 15 of S1 now and I'm on the verge of giving up watching - there have been so, so many scenes where certain characters should have died without question. At least four times per episode some characters survive a barrage of gunfire or a knife fight which should surely have killed them, whilst at the same time they manage to kill about half a dozen 'baddies' with ease. There's only so far that suspension of disbelief can go, and the characters are becoming more and more cheesy and stereotyped as time passes!

I'm not sure... this probably isn't helpful, but all I can suggest is giving it a try and seeing whether you like it. I think I'll stick with it for the time being but I'm not sure I'll make it right to the end!

As you'll already know what Revolution is all about (or at least read in a review elsewhere), I'll cut to the chase and offer my honest, fair opinion.
It is all pretty vanilla; a show probably best suited for older teens (or those capable of overlooking the DOZENS of logical inconsistencies the writers fail to address). It isn't horribly offensive on an intellectual level (like Twilight is), and is okay if you just want to turn your brain off for forty minutes and unwind.
But. . . .
You'll have to have faith and just go with it, because if you actually start to question what you are watching, the show will be ruined. Example: The heroes are trying to stop the Monroe Republic (villains) from gaining access to the electricity which would allow them to activate missiles and mobilise machines of war. However, we are never told why this would be a bad thing. The 'villains' want to establish some kind of law, and stop the indiscriminate slaughter out in the badlands. So, within the confines of the show's logic, law, order, peace and prosperity are BAD things. Okay. . .
And surely the Monroe Republic, in possession of electricity, could begin to manufacture medicines, reestablish hospitals and schools, and just generally help the world regain some semblance of civilisation?
Meanwhile, our 'heroes' (who must be good because they have Old Glory tattoos), do their best to foil the Monroe Republic at every turn, and generally keep the world in the Dark Ages. . .
None of the above is helped by the fact that the bad guys are generally more likeable and well rounded characters than the good guys.
Revolution isn't the worst kind of Hollywood cheese, but it isn't too far off. . .

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?
