Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -

Well that is nice. Now I'll have to watch one by alternate means. I enjoyed having Revolution on Monday and Arrow on Wednesday to watch...


Arrow gets priority for me.

I've got 2 DVRs so that's almost never a problem for me except for the night's where both the Lakers are playing and Conan is on and other shows I regularly watch,

I wish they would just get to it now. It's pretty obvious that Miles is really Charlie's father. With the reveal that Miles and Rachel had a fling it just makes it more obvious a possibility.

Did they just travel 400+ miles in one scene transporting a guy in a coma? And poor Charlie... dude's got to have one epic case of morning breath.

Monroe's paranoia makes Stalin's behavior look tame.

They do seem to have a slight issue with geographic/temporal relationships in this show. Still watchable, though. Miles is getting pretty dark and I SOOO want Neville to get clipped. He really ought to not get too smug. He's a little too new to the GF and too many people on both sides want to see him hang.

Monroe is SOOO boring and uncharismatic..how did he take control of a whole Republic in the first place?

While you're right about Neville &being smug...he ought to assassinate Monroe and take his title...scratch off a line on the logo for the Neville Republic!

Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -

I don't hate Monroe as much as a lot of people do, but I do have to admit that Neville would be a much more interesting Big Bad.
As for the episode, I thought it was pretty good. It was interesting seeing Miles & Rachel back when he was still with the the Republic.
I was shocked when Rachel didn't help the kid, but I think it really was the smart move. On top of what she said, it would probably create a pretty bad situation for her and Aaron. If word got out about what she did, then they would probably end up with tons of people after them.

What an exciting murder mystery. Zzzzzzzzzzz

Still two more to limp through on the season. Maybe they can end on a high note and improve next season but I can't say I'm very confident at this point.

Re: Revolution - season 1 part 2 -

Rachel figured out that Aaron is hopelessly in love with her, decides to commit suicide in 6 or 7 hours, and doesn't take him to heaven before she checks out?

What a bitch.

Maybe she is still pining for Jamie Lannister from her time on Lost?

I really enjoyed this episode. I didn't expect Miles friend to betray them, I liked him.

I agree. I think this episode was solid. Only character that seems odd is Randall Flynn played by Colm Feore - first he's the bad ass defense dept guy that turned off the lights.

But in this past week's epsiode he seems like a coward next to Monroe. What gives?

Nice to know If i put my lawnmower away for 15 year with a full tank of gas, it will work fine... Seriously let just syphon 15 year only gas from other helicopters it will work fine. LOL

Also, how long does it take to drive from Philly to Atlanta.. The timing and distance feels all wrong with this show.

13 hours if you don't stop

On the gas thing - Ricks group, in The Walking Dead not only are able to find gas months/over a year after the zombies show up - but also keep the car clean, and mow the grass at the prison.

These kind of nitpicks don't bug me.

BTW, a little reserach yielded this:

Fuel Stability Foam. Fuel Kleenik is a stability foam which is suspended in the diesel fuel in the tank. It has been developed and tested by Department of Defence and is claimed to keep the fuel stable for up to 10 years. The disadvantages are:
• it does not work where fungus and water are present which is why it is suspended in the fuel.
• its size is 2100mm x 200mm x 200mm so it has to be dropped in through a hatch.
Fuel 'bladders,' will also greatly increase how long gasolinei s viable

Also, regarding Jet fuel for Monroe's drones - it lasts forever:

As far as I know, Jet fuel does not go "bad" nor varnish up like auto gas does. If the fuel is "dry" then it can be stored indefinitely. It may be a good idea from time to time to recirculate/stir the fuel in the tank/s and filter vessel. This helps take water/impurites, if any are present, to the filter to keep the fuel clean and dry.
