Oh gosh, I can't believe I went and missed the pilot of Revolution! I've been looking forward to seeing it but wouldn't you know it; instead, I was stuck in the mud on the side of the road! LOL By the time dh came and pulled me out, all I wanted to do was jump in a hot tub and I totally forgot it was coming on! Thank goodness I can catch it online later.

Just wonder if anyone watched it... and what you thought of it!

I am so glad we have this board.  Just put it in my Hulu queue.

I have not seen it yet but I really want to! I saw several reviews on Facebook from friends and they said it is similar to Hunger Games (and if that is true, I know I will love it!). I hope to watch it online this weekend.

I finally got a chance to watch it last night.... it really is good! Miles is pretty darn hunky, so it's not going to be a hardship to watch this one.

So far, I think one of my favorite characters is Aaron; I mean, how could you not like someone who had $80 million in the bank before the apocalypse and says he'd now trade it all for one roll of Charmin!

LOL..yeah, I spit out my drink laughing at that scene; it was just so darn unexpected!

I can see the similarities to The Hunger Games; both are post-apocalyptic worlds and both have a strong female role who is really family focused. Charlie's pretty darn handy with her cross-bow and I have a feeling that she's already one guy interested in her! LOL

And, it reminds me a bit of Lost cause I've already got a ton of questions running through my head and that's after just seeing the pilot! Oh well, maybe it will help teach me patience! :smileywink:

I watched the pilot on demand (seems a lot of shows have their premieres and even second episodes on there). Thought it was really good. Though I wish they showed more of the pre-lights out stuff. It switched too fast. 

I'm curious to see how it plays out. I read a scoop that says someone who had a lot of screen time on the premiere epi won't be around much longer. I'm thinking it's the girlfriend of the father, that blond. But who knows. Maybe it's the Google guy (that was a great line too—with the air plane and how he owned one, etc. LOL).

Oh...  you mentioned Ben's girlfriend, the blond... I can't remember her name right now, but I find myself a little curious about her. In the scene from the airplane, where those bad guys found them -- ok, I can kind of see maybe having poisoned booze as a fail safe; devious, but easily done. But when she reversed the hold that guy with the garrote had on her and took him out? Those were some kind of pretty impressive expert moves she pulled; she's got have some sort of military/elite training, don't you think? I kind of wondered if Miles may have sent her to help protect his brother...

LOL... I can't wait till the episode tonight but I just know it'll probably raise another dozen or so questions in my mind.
