Revolution Season 2 - spoilers
 
This Wednesday evening premieres season 2 of Revolution. Will you be joining in? Last season of course it ended with Flynn killing himself, the President coming out of hiding in Guatnamo and the season finale where they turned the power back on only for Flynn to launch 2 nuclear weapons towards Atlanta and Philadelphia.

I'm going to give it a try in season 2 where I've read they've gotten some new writers and updated staff.

Bad Robot exec produces this show so hopefully they'll make some dramatic improvements.

Me as well - although some episodes became soap opera[ish]. But that can happen to any series.

Many people on here last year posted their disdain for the, "magic nanites," which seemed like implausible technology and to some degree created plot holes.

Meh - every sci-fi/fantasy show has plot holes to make the story work - especially when you're talking about fictional technology. It didn't bother me on Trek anymore than on Revolution.

Wait, it's on Wednesdays? With Revolution last season, then Under the Dome during the summer I pretty much had Monday as my crap TV night. There was always something awful to watch, it's very symbolic of the start of the work week. But now they move it to Wednesday? No, I don't like this at all.

This was one of my favorite shows last season, so I'll definitely be sticking around.

I only wanted two series from last season on blu-ray and Revolution was one of them (ther other being Arrow). The show looks great on BD. It's a bit cheesy but a lot of fun. I don't need every show to be grounded and realistic, sometimes I want to watch something fun...with lots of sword fights.

Yeah, I watched in HD on Netflix, and it does look great.
JJ Abrams did an interview about the new season.

It did. Am willing to bet it goes off again before the title card comes up. ;)

Abrams hopes for season 2 are good based on the above interview. I hope he can pull it off. It makes you wonder though about what he means by, 'strange," and "unusual,' for season 2.

^Actually, as far as I know Abrams has very little to do with the show creatively. It was created and is run by Eric Kirpke (the creator of Supernatural).

I was super pissed at the thing that happened so I was pleasantly surprised when it was undone at the very end!

I agree with M.r. Light. There are plenty of other characters that could've happened to and it the show would be fine... by the way Mr. Light, the title says spoilers, so I suppose we could discuss it.

I was also shocked at Neville...but perhaps he will become the new ruler of a faction (eventually). Or-----a good guy -- if the resurrected US is not as good as it portrays itself.

So, seems they are going with the nanites as magic angle. The news that the power would be off again this season pissed me off, but nanite magic turning this into a fantasy setting could be fun.

Turning the power on, launching bombs and then shutting the power off was a cheap way out.
