Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

Perhaps I missed something, but why do people keep calling Miles Matheson also as Stu or Stuart/Stewart interchangeably with Miles? If he's trying to hide his identity, they're not doing a very good job of it, as too many people seem to be openly using Miles as his name as well. Really confused with this one...

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

He has to use a fake name name because he is to well known as General Matheson from the Monroe Republic . Interestingly, he uses Stu Redman which is a character in the Steven King book/movie 'The Stand'. He also used it last season, and called Charlie 'Fran Goldsmith' who was another character from 'The Stand'. I'm guess Kripke is a fan of Steven King because he uses other references as well.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

Okay - that's starting to make sense - but I'm then curious about why they're also calling him Miles in mixed company, then. They seem to forget the Stu name at very strange times, like they're not terribly concerned with Miles' personal security and keeping his true identity under wraps. I guess that's why I was so confused about it - its usage seems somewhat random.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

Yeah, The Stand references were a big thing last season. Haven't really been paying attention to see if they are still being done this season.

Oh for fuck's sake. Again?

Yes, the "mole" was really obvious but COME ON, you-know-who is STILL alive? This is getting ridiculous.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

Having Monroe seemingly die by lethal injection was way too convenient.

Question is, did Rachael's dad intentionally fake the execution by injecting Monroe with a non-lethal tranquilizer that only made him unconscious and appear deceased?

I doubt that Gene had anything to do with it. I think that Rachel simply switched the drugs out. Also with Rachel's father being a Patriot mole it explains why they didn't just lock her away. They had someone watching her to see what she was up to.

Was Charlie seriously getting all teary-eyed at Monroe's execution? She was just trying to kill him herself for crying out loud. The characters are so inconsistent in this show.

Love how the writers brought in exposition lady to explain everything to Aaron.

Exactly. That's one of the things that just drives me batty. I really like Aaron, though, and that's pretty much the only thing that keeps me watching---well, that and Hubby wants to keep watching.

That what I thought. How convenient that she can just come in, unload a huge chunk of information, and allow us to skip over any unnecessary drama that might let us learn things for ourselves.

Most of the time she plays the mom on Scot Baio's family friendly nick at night sitcom.

Other times she plays a sodomy enthusiast rockstar wife on with the worst English accent on Californication.

Girl gets around.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

You know, Revolution is kind of like nuTrek.

I don't really think the stories are that good, but the casting is fantastic!

(Shouldn't say that about the story of STID, it was pretty good)

Series cast summary:
Billy Burke ... Miles Matheson (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
Tracy Spiridakos ... Charlie Matheson (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
Giancarlo Esposito ... Major Tom Neville / ... (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
Elizabeth Mitchell ... Rachel Matheson (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
Zak Orth ... Aaron Pittman (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
David Lyons ... Sebastian 'Bass' Monroe (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
JD Pardo ... Jason Neville / ... (26 episodes, 2012-2013)
Daniella Alonso ... Nora Clayton (19 episodes, 2012-2013)
Graham Rogers ... Danny Matheson (11 episodes, 2012-2013)


There isn't a dud in the entire lot!

I'm in, as long as Elizabeth Mitchell is in it.

Miss midriff (Charlie) isn't bad to look at either.

My favorite of the bunch is Giancarlo... he's just awesome in that part.

This next episode should be an interesting one for sure. It loks like Monroe just might bight the bullet.

No surprise, since they're both produced by JJ Abrams's Bad Robot.
