Promo for the second half of Revolution's first season

Holy fuck that was intense! I don't want to wait four months for new episodes.
klutzy_girl 27th-Nov-2012 04:24 am (UTC)
I was literally shaking by the end of the episode, tbh. And I can't believe they ended it there! alskdjf;alksdjf;lkasdjfasd

Loved that Miles told Monroe that he wasn't his family anymore, and that he had one. (Matheson family feels all over the place, specifically for Charlie and Miles.)

Something must have gone down between Miles and Rachel. And I think the creepy guy she murdered tonight might have raped her or something.

Loved Badass!Charlie and Badass!Aaron.

Gah, the second half of the season looks amazing and intense and I hate that we have to wait so long for it.

re: Rachel/Miles... YES. I think even moreso Rachel/Miles/Monroe
baby_phat_honne 27th-Nov-2012 04:27 am (UTC)
Damnit! I forgot... hopefully some cool Miles/Nora went down
klutzy_girl 27th-Nov-2012 04:28 am (UTC)
No, but a lot of other intense shit went down and it was awesome.
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 04:33 am (UTC)
Unfortunately it did not.

I really hope their storyline is more developed in the second half bc I'm rooting for them sfm
la_petite_singe 27th-Nov-2012 04:34 am (UTC)
I'm two episodes behind; should I bother catching up? I'm really only in it for Giancarlo Esposito and Billy Burke (well, and Elizabeth Mitchell. And now kinda David Lyons because he's oddly hot).
klutzy_girl 27th-Nov-2012 04:34 am (UTC)
Yes! Tonight's episode was amazing and so good.
exlenne 27th-Nov-2012 04:38 am (UTC)
Definitely. The show is really finding its stride, I honestly feel like it is getting better each week.
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 04:39 am (UTC)
Shit got real in the final two episodes.

And, if your into Lyons, then catch-up bc he's had some star acting moments, especially in tonight's episode
williammiller 28th-Nov-2012 07:33 am (UTC)
Catch up! The last two episodes were great.
exlenne 27th-Nov-2012 04:36 am (UTC)
I like this show.

I don't love this show but I like this show.
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 04:40 am (UTC)

It could be so much better; but, I have resigned myself to the show's flaws
exlenne 27th-Nov-2012 04:41 am (UTC)
This is how I view most shows. I go in planning to just give it a chance, but after a few episodes I'm already committed and stick with it, and usually end up finding something to enjoy out of it.

It has massive potential and so many of the right things but something is holding it back from being great. But I enjoy it and that is what TV is for, so maybe it'll reach that greatness in the future. And if it doesn't w/e I had a good time with it.
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 05:08 am (UTC)
and usually end up finding something to enjoy out of it.

Same here. Usually, it ends up being the pretty actors. LoL.

They have all of these A-list producers attached the show (Kripke, J.J., Favreau); but, it's such a FLOP. I really wish they all re-evaluate the show; and, after the hiatus it returns with a stronger premise
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 04:36 am (UTC)
The best part of tonight's episode was Miles/Monroe.

Bass at the graveyard broke my freaking heart. Srsly, tears in my eyes.
And, then, their talk in the basement before shit got real...so freaking tense.

Really hoping the second half has more Rachel and Nora, and less Charlie and Danny.

Can't wait to see the connection between Rachel and Aaron.
exlenne 27th-Nov-2012 04:39 am (UTC)
They should go for a shocker season finale and kill off Charlie


no one would miss her
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
When she elected herself to be killed, I kept hoping the gun trigger would be pulled.

I'm so tired of her; and, the constant googly eyes she makes at her uncle. The only people who would truly miss her are those who ship Miles/Charlie 0_0
exlenne 27th-Nov-2012 04:45 am (UTC)
I'm all for (fictional ... or not, w/e) incest if it feels right but I don't see it at all. Possibly because I hate everything about Charlie.

She exemplifies all of the show's flaws. No depth, no direction, it's like she's on a set track down plotville and her only purpose is to move the show along.

She's like a POV character in a show that doesn't need one or something.

ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 05:00 am (UTC)
I feel the same way. She comes off as a child, which doesn't mesh with Miles who is clearly in his late 30's

The writing really sucks for her. You can tell the writers wanted to have her start off as a character who was a dreamer; and, who eventually turns into this HBIC. However, I quickly became NHFT. I definitely think the writing and acting hamper the character.
hjislove 27th-Nov-2012 04:59 am (UTC)
I'd miss her .. so false.

Also, I think waiting until March to premiere the second half of this season is really stupid mistake. I have a feeling it'll have the negative effect on the show
snnat17 27th-Nov-2012 04:51 am (UTC)
I was going to watch this show when it first started but I was on vacation when it started and I just never bothered catching up. How many episodes have aired so far? Is it worth watching?
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 05:04 am (UTC)
10 episodes has aired so far.
The rest of the season is on hiatus until the end of March.

If you're hung over one weekend and need a show to watch, then I guess I would recommend this show. Honestly, there's a lot of flaws, which makes it hard to get through each episode. I just stuck with the series because I wanted to see how it ended before the hiatus
snnat17 28th-Nov-2012 04:15 am (UTC)
Hrmm interesting Ill give it a try one day. Supernatural is my favorite show therefore I like Eric Kripke so if it wasn't for him being co-creator I wouldn't be as interested in the show.
williammiller 28th-Nov-2012 07:33 am (UTC)
Catch up! I think there's 10 episodes. It returns in March. It starts out a little slow but it definitely picks up. The last two episodes were so great.
simr2277 27th-Nov-2012 05:01 am (UTC)
God why is everyone so effing stupid! Why couldn't miles just kill him? And why didn't juliet destroy the amplifier before leaving. And also not here for those jank ass childhood flashbacks. UGH
ljubavirakija 27th-Nov-2012 05:05 am (UTC)
And why didn't juliet destroy the amplifier before leaving.

Srsly. Rachel, you'll have enough time slapping Miles after you destroy the device. So stupid
hjislove 27th-Nov-2012 05:02 am (UTC)
i want some more family scenes next year.
rachel/charlie interaction, interest me.
bluetina11 27th-Nov-2012 05:05 am (UTC)
dammit, I don't what to wait 4 months for this to return.

And I'm finding it getting really hard not to ship Miles/Monroe each episode, even though I'm pretty sure I'm not suppose to ship them.
helyanwe89 27th-Nov-2012 06:57 am (UTC)
I don't really want them to kill each other. I wanted them to make-up and be friends again because it looks like they really were great friends for so long. Maybe Miles could help Monroe out of whatever he's going through.
sheinhardt 27th-Nov-2012 05:05 am (UTC)
Is it worth catching up before the rest of the season airs? I haven't watched since episode 4 or 5... I love JJ Abrams sfm so I definitely gave it a shot, but I forgot to watch eventually.......
williammiller 28th-Nov-2012 07:33 am (UTC)
Definitely. The past two episodes were so great.
flyingpigs_live 27th-Nov-2012 05:25 am (UTC)
only here for the flawless screencap of Liz Mitchell's face.
prophecypro 27th-Nov-2012 05:27 am (UTC)
The premise and what it tries to be kind makes me hate it, but hey good for it if it got better...
shhh_its_s3cr3t 27th-Nov-2012 05:30 am (UTC)
I haven't seen tonight's episode yet - I got it recorded for a laundry folding session tomorrow. ( I know I have an exciting life, don't even mind me!)

Charlie though, she needs to develop something so I don't end up wanting her dead every single episode. I feel like she hasn't been beaten up badly enough yet or something!
sleepymonster 27th-Nov-2012 05:39 am (UTC)
Liz Mtchell screen grab? Well played. Looks like Rachel has more screen time I may have to catch up.
michelleantonia 27th-Nov-2012 11:09 am (UTC)
There's more Rachel and more Miles/Monroe... this show is really hitting its stride
juggarnut 27th-Nov-2012 06:03 am (UTC)
has this show gotten better? i stopped watching after 3-4 episodes
frenchxsoul 27th-Nov-2012 06:28 am (UTC)
I feel like the finale was predictable! After a few episodes I figured Monroe would get his power surge and all that.. Not too surprised honestly 😒and Miles and Charlie would eventually find her brother too.... I was excited for this show in the beg.but now I'm kinda of over it.I feel I wouldn't be too disappointed or feel like I need to catch up. And DAM!! Can Charlie change her dam facial expressions!! I'm over this show.
violue 27th-Nov-2012 07:07 am (UTC)
D: ok that Strausser guy was so fucking creepy, and his lines were gross, and apparently he raped Rachel or something and just WHY.

wtf was going on with Sebastian's hair tonight idek man ok

that scene with Miles and Sebastian omg ;_; that was so heartbreaking, it was weird being riveted by a scene in this show.

but then Miles was like "ur nothing 2 me bb" and I'm like "ok then why didn't you pull the trigger you fuck-up"

I liked when Charlie's all beaming at Miles when they're escaping and he calls her an idiot or w/e... idk I thought that was a weirdly sweet moment, shut up.

The total viewer-ratings have gone down so much since this started, I think this super-long hiatus is such a fail move.

Sebastian's backstory was so sad :( and jesus christ the UST is just blaring with him and Miles (well I'm ASSUMING it's unresolved)
michelleantonia 27th-Nov-2012 11:08 am (UTC)
ITA... I NEVER expected to be so RAPT by anything on this show lol

blaring lol basically. And of course it's unresolved... it's the driving force behind the show!
tangerinefriday 27th-Nov-2012 11:22 am (UTC)
I saw it coming from the ep when they found the Supernatural dude on the road in the flashback. But I was not disappointed. Personal rejection is the BEST motivator for *big evil* imo it's the most believable, and in that regard this show is showing its strength.
tangerinefriday I thought the idiot thing was cute too.27th-Nov-2012 11:24 am (UTC)
Charlie/ Miles is basically the only great thing about Charlie imo. At least the only thing I'm feeling. I really like their dynamic.
tangerinefriday 27th-Nov-2012 09:15 am (UTC)
Finally, I feel like they started to get down to the soul of this show. It is a bold and interesting choice to make this huge life or death, rule the world, wars, apocolypse shit kind of come down to two guys who loved each other like brothers when they were kids. That stuff can get easily oversentimental and make the entire story feel inauthentic or emotionally manipulative, but I dare say they've avoided that and it is really working for them rn. It took too long and I feel like they are still insisting and keeping around some weak links but I'm not gonna complain. If this was cable they'd be bold and shave down the bs even further. I'm only really feeling Miles, Monroe, Rachael, and Neville, and that wasn't from the get go either. They need to pick up the slack with the others if they want me to care.
michelleantonia 27th-Nov-2012 11:06 am (UTC)
I feel absolutely vindicated... I've been on repeat how Miles/Monroe are by far the best thing about this show... and they finally proved that to be the case. How they brought together their flashback and their meeting was everything I was hoping for and more. It's leagues about everything else about this show. Charlie who? It's not her story, and I think they know that, thankfully.
nazliy 27th-Nov-2012 07:50 pm (UTC)
i just expected miles and monroe to make out lol. they are screwed honestly...
oren11 28th-Nov-2012 07:56 am (UTC)
I was getting a relationship vibe also lol. It looked like it very well could have happened. I wish they had done that and it might have been awesome.

Edited at 2012-11-28 07:57 am (UTC)
nazliy 28th-Nov-2012 08:27 am (UTC)
they are totally having lovers spat. i know it's hard to get past one trying to kill another one thing but... i doubt they'll go there after miles giving you're not my family tirade
