    My comment was only about what I didn’t like of “Revolution”, besides what others are saying (slow-moving, plot holes, character development, etc…)

    About the violence and mayhem response, yeah, it would sux if our electricity were gone all of a sudden, and it’s true that people have been killing each other since the beginnings of time. But, I do not want to see it. I just do NOT want to tune in to enjoy a show and be looking at people explicitly murdering others (with what appears like pleasure) over and over again.

    Yes, violence is part of most dramas on TV, but it’s not the violence itself I was refering to, it’s the amount of it. It was just too much for me.

    I’ve watched other series which have been gruesome and violent, (lately “SVU”, “Criminal Minds”, “Bones”) but in these shows there is more than just violence, there is dialog and stories to reflect on.

    Anyway, thx for the response, “Other than THAT Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?”

    Why do we have to check the “Confirm you are NOT a spammer block to post? If I were a spammer, I would just check it and post.

    We can disagree about scientific theory. The fact of the matter is that it is all conjecture. Some ideas have more evidence than others, but none of what I wrote is drivel… especially just because you said it is. You’re a reasonable man. You should understand that. Drivel suggests complete nonsense; none of what I wrote is complete nonsense because there are plenty of physicists who’ve gotten their PhDs by merely speculating these sorts of ideas.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of The Hunger Games. It was a movie full of attractive people doing cool things. The stakes were so low because we didn’t understand what exactly happened. But other than the division of the country (along with Mexico and Canada) into different districts (whereas, in Revolution, they are broken up in republics and federation, etc), there is very little in common between these two pieces of entertainment. They take place in not-too-distant futures with the background of a dystopian world. Well, that was the final season of Fringe more than the Hunger Games, but all three had that backdrop. (Though Fringe did a better way of making it clear that it was sci-fi.)

    If you’re going to compare The Hunger Games to anything, it should be compared to The Running Man, which was a better read than a film… Schwarzenneger, however, did a decent job of making a well-rounded character, as written by Stephen King. The best show that I can think of that warrants a comparison to Revolution isn’t even a fiction show but a science-based show that has no people. The show? Life Without People. It’s sort of fun to see how things break down when society collapses. First it’s the law of the land, etc., but soon it’ll be infrastructure (which is already happening, at least here in the US) and then things we can’t even imagine.

    Those are the sorts of stories that need to be explored instead of the idea that one man happens to be the brother-in-law of the woman responsible while also being responsible for the creation of an entire republic and then seemingly having a relationship of sorts with the president of a neighboring federation. That just doesn’t make sense. That is less likely to happen than the power itself going out. Also, had the power gone out because of people, it would have been a lot sooner than 15 years before it was restored.

    These are the areas where I see that the show’s problems have so much less to do with the bogus sci-fi explanations. The sci-fi stuff can be explained in greater detail as things progress. I’m fine with that. But what doesn’t make sense is that these people are traversing a continent on foot and constantly running into to people they’ve known. That just can’t happen. It’s not like they’re going back and forth on an island, like on Lost, which is the size of a city, yet happened to make it impossible for people to find each other. (That show, by the way, is largely considered sci-fi and I’ll go along with it because of what they did in the fourth season, but that was never sci-fi; it was a human drama that took on many aspects of the supernatural.)

    Right now, Revolution has bigger problems than “is it a fantasy or sci-fi series”?

    After a subpar season last year, scriptwise, Castle has its mojo back.
    Congrats to the creatives one and all

  • Cara

    Revolution is a new episode, but its ratings continue to decline. Castle is the only new episode, which is nothing to brag about!

  • Legal Girl in Florida

    H50 sure doesn’t do very well in reruns!!

    My thoughts exactly. Previous season was really weak but this one is right after season one and two. Did the show have new writers? Anyone knows?

  • Pavelsauce

    Have you actually seen the US version of The Voice? I certainly don’t remember when the judges were bickering and squabbling.

  • Jiji Moran

    Pavelsauce, the producers see a spike in ratings when there is drama on a show, so they keep bringing the difficult personas in an attempt to gain viewers.

    That’s why “The Apprentice” keeps bringing back Amarosa and DeBusy. That’s why “DWTS” don’t get rid of Maksim for good, and why they brought back the “difficult” all-stars last season. That’s why instead of Minaj, the “American Idol” wanted to replace Mariah this season.

    Personally, when I see bickering and animosity, I just change the channel.

  • Katelyn

    Really don’t understand why anyone would want to watch Castle over Revolution. While I enjoy Castle, there are dozens of other shows like it. The whodunit cop shows have been done to death! Revolution has its problems, sure, but it takes risks and delivers. It’s one of the few shows that demonstrate character depth, character evolution, and a complex plot you can really sink your teeth into. It will be interesting to see how Miles changes now that he’s General again. Billy Burke rocks!

    Can you Castle fans comment on anything without bashing Revolution? Geez! And those of you who have never watched it, don’t knock a show until you’ve actually sat down and watched it. I’ve never watched an episode of Castle and you don’t see me bashing it. Wishing a show to get cancelled is basically saying you’re wishing the actors to lose their jobs… Besides Revolution & Castle are no where in competition. So why the harsh words for Revolution? BTW: I truly am happy for Castle and their fans. xo
