I just watched the pilot for Revolution on Hulu Plus. Has some of the same shadow characters that Jerico had. Even some of the same elements. If you liked Jerico, you'll probably like Revolution.

Kurb was an extra in this show, I believe... Looking forward to checking it out... Jericho was epic, and I don't know if this can come close...

I thought the same thing. Kinda reminded me of Jericho meets The Event.

Watched it On Demand, I liked it. Has potential if JJ Abrams can stop his penchant for making shows complicated for complicated sake.

Much more Sci-Fi than Jerico. Similar vein tho.


Little things about the show are going to make me pull my hair out.

Why does her crossbow shoot backwards ?

Why am I pulling this helicopter ?

Etc Etc

I had tix to the premiere at Thalian, but my son decided to try and burn the house down so I missed it... :(

I need to catch it online and see what's up.

They have been calling for extras like crazy but they want people that can be there for multiple days and I can't do that right now.

If you have Time Warner, it's still On Demand as of yesterday.

It looked a little too unintentionally campy for my tastes but I may give it a shot.

Won't be gritty enough to be good. The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad have spoiled me as to what a tv series can be. I did like Jericho though.
