Revolution, NBC’s latest foray into the dystopian, seems to have created quite the recipe for success:
- 2 heaping helpings of The Hunger Games
- A solid fistful of Fringe
- A dash of Lost
- A smidge of Terra Nova (did anyone watch that show? No? Ok, nevermind.)
Mix all of these ingredients together, add some unusually good looking people along with your token “average” looking dude (see Zak Orth’s character Aaron Pittman, the Google exec guy), and BAM! You got yourself a primetime TV show.
The premiere episode of Revolution moved kind of slowly, but my interest is piqued. I can’t expect characters to have really complex personalities or for the story to make that much sense after just an hour, right? I will reserve judgment on the series for a little while. But to paraphrase a wise man in the office, “I am not about to wait 5 seasons to find out what that little microchip thingy does.”
Here’s to hoping we learn more about the microchip thingy sooner rather than later.
Now I rarely do this, but for those of you who missed the first episode of Revolution, I think you should watch it for yourselves:
Thanks for reading, and as always, thanks for watching KPRC Local 2!
