I didn't see the old thread for Revolution, but NBC has released a sneak peak for the March return of the series:

Yaeh might as well start a seperate thread. When the show comes back after it's long hiatus, this half of the season will feel like the second season. lol

Lots of glorious style and fascinating potential, but ... helicopters???

Good-looking cast and Gus notwithstanding, I'll likely pass unless the buzz is irresistible...

We can only hope that the second half of the season improves upon the unwatchable crap that was the first half. I have a high tolerance for cheese but that was some of the most awful TV I've ever seen.

I loved the first half of the season and can't wait to see where things go from here. I was pretty surprised that they ended the first half where they did, and I'm very curious to see where we will be by the end of the season.

My guess is...cancelled.

They can save this show if they just kill off the teenagers.

I wonder how many fans will remember when this show comes back? :shrug:

Colm Feore has the ability IMO to help save the show from an acting point of view.

I'm looking forward to the show's return but I hope they even out Charlie's temperament a little. She swang too wildly from loving and trusting her Uncle to hating him and not trusting him. They can get rid of Danny as far as I'm concerned. He hasn't added much to the show except to be a focal point for Charlie's initial mission to get him back.

I'll be interested to see what Colm Feore's character's role is in all of this is.

Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -
 
Yeah, I think his character is one of the more intriguing mysteries they've set up.

In this context, she's playing a teenage girl quite remarkably well. In a world without jewel-encrusted cell phones and bedazzled denim jackets, what other outlets for a girl swimming in emotional tumult and mercurial judgment are there?

Seriously, though, I'm fed up with Aaron the Google-boy. He's been quite the fuck up from the beginning and I honestly can't imagine that guy surviving in such a hostile environment for very long. If the big black-out happened yesterday, I could understand how the character is being portrayed, but that's just it...the lights have been out for many years and he still kind of acts like an extra from Big Bang Theory.

Other than that, I'm really liking this show.

I don't have too much of a problem with his being unable to defend himself. He seems to have spent a number of years living in the peaceful farming community. The problem I do have is that, even as a non-farming member of that community, he should be in much better shape physically.
