Edit: Let me start by saying im not being serious here guys, calm down.
They should rename this show This Is Post Apocalyptic LOST.
Except they are like screw it we're going to do flashbacks right of the bat. What's the over/under on the number of LOST characters are involved by the time this thing is over with? Let's start the line at 20. HOW DOES ELIZABETH MITCHELLKEEP GETTING JOBS?? She plays Juliet on the show. Crap that was her LOST character She plays Rachel in this. She is possibly the worst actress of all time. Like on LOST, the scenes with her are almost painful to watch. "Danny, is that you?" (fakes a cry but can't come close to getting a tear out). Later on in the show "Charlie, is that you?" (fakes a cry but can't come close to getting a tear out.
The first episode was pretty good. The scene they showed in the advertisement before ibefore the shows release, the one where they walk past Wrigley Field. That was pretty well done.
Also in the first episode I came to watch Revolution and at the end Braveheart broke out. That was surprising.
Then the episode with Frank Lapidus, the pilot. Crap he was the pilot on LOST, he was the dog dude in this. He wants to kill EVERYBODY because his daughter died because of looters? Jeez dude it ain't their fault. Miles and the crew have an unbelievably fake crossbow shooter, swords and guns but you are seriously terrified, not over people, but dogs? Pffttftttpptttff. Then Maggie the stepmom dies after Frank Lapidus stabs her wait for it, wait for it...in the leg. No not the stomach or the or the heart but the leg. Only Charlie can get stabbed in the stomach and walk it off. Maggie is dying, Charlie: "I'm not going anywhere." Maggie dies. "ALRIGHT LET'S MOVE! They had just finished watching Titanic.
Ok and just the premise of the whole show. No other country cares to help, they don't even mention that another country has even to help. God forbid logic. I'd be freaking walking my azz to Canada. In just 15 years the states have dissolved and one dude has taken over half the country. What's this founding father of the "Monroe Territories"? GENERAL MONROE! Not to be confused with the founding father of the United States, James Monroe.
I hope that when our power goes out, in 15 years, the military makes civil war uniforms, not the camo ones we got now. Pretty sure that's how it would go. The Civil War crap is ridiculous. Did black powder guns become the most popular things ever shortly before the blackout? Because theres not many of them being made these days. That wouldn't be the gun in serious abundance. You can barely give those things away nowadays. I can see how the finding ammo for AR's and rifles could be an issue but there are way too many black powder guns floating around.
The scene where Charlie has to meet and talk to Neville, almost as tense as the opening scene from Inglorious Basterds.
My favorite quote of season one: "It doesn't get any easier, you just get better at swallowing it." Nice.
Little known fact... A whiskey flask also can serve as a BULLET PROOF VEST. No joke it does. Serious. They are like super hard.
Mexicans are still your stereotypical maid lol.
This Strauser dude cracks me up. Miles claims that this is the only dude he's ever been afraid of. The guy literally does nothing scary. Ever. I guess they were going for the psychopath thing. But this guy is closer to being a pre-school teacher than a psychopath.
I think the thing that pissed me off the most was what Aaron did with his wife. You leave you're freaking wife because your not manly enough??? You have to leave because the other people can take care of her. Instead of being there while other people take care of her. I cannot respect anything he does from here on out. What a giant puss.
The land mine scen was awesome. When they stepped off one and set off the black cats and sparklers. Joe Dirt would have been pissed at that explosion.
Capt. Tom Neville is awesome though. Best character on the show.
I can see Jacob being a bigger character in the future. Crap that was his name on LOST. Why do I keep doing that?
I got Revolution spirit yes I do. I got spirit how bout you? Your thought? To;dr?
