    I’m really debating on catching up with revolution. I think it will be added to netflix come closer to fall, but I don’t know if I should or not. I watched the first episode or two and just got too far behind to catch up. I may see how it does during it’s second season to see if it’s worth catching up on or not.

    Can anyone tell me if they are satisfied with the way season 1 ended or do you think season 2 will just suck because the writers already dropped the ball on season one and ruined the show?

  • Tony

    LMAO @ TCD. What’s the point? Might as well air static.

    I caught up with Revolution about a month ago, and honestly the most difficult “area” to watch is the beginning of the season before episode ten or so. Not that the show got great, but the finale was pretty good in terms of a mediocre first season. The end was as shocking as anything else that’s happened in the series. But I have no idea what to expect in Season 2, it doesn’t exactly have me begging for more, I’m at least intrigued by the final moments and I will actually miss a character somewhat.

    One thing I will say about Revoulution is that no matter how high or low the Voice hits or drops, Revolution continues to pull in the same range of viewers and demo.

    Although Revolution numbers are not impressive from a “retention” point of view, it still has an audience. Revolution also has a big and healthy sized DVR audience in which NBC better hope and pray that some of those viewers and its current live audience continue to watch live.

    Although NBC did a horrible job scheduling Revolution at 8:00 for the upcoming season, as a tv viewer who does not watch this show I’m not going to give up on the show and say it will be an epic fail although the odds are against them, it has some hope.

    I’m tired of you Revolution haters saying it can’t last without The Voice. I’ve been checking the new schedule, and even if the ones who watch Arrow (including me) stick around after for The Tomorrow People, there’s nothing for that audience at 10, so we can tape Revolution and watch it then. Live + same day, which still makes money, so no problem.

    ABC can’t wait for the NBA Finals

    The Bachelorette will likely stay low until The Voice ends, if this nonsense ever ends. Terrible for Mistresses but not surprised.

    I know repeats are meaningless but Raising Hope had the same rating as HIMYM? Raising Hope was never a strong show and is airing out of timeslot.

    “Infact there’s a Revenge fanboy regular here who frequently comments on how ‘Doomed’ Revolution is, when his show did worse overall.”


    Revenge is a stronger show than Revolution. The lead-in is the only thing holding that show up and it couldn’t even hold a 2.0 for its entire first season. Even Revenge never fell below a 2.0 in its first season and it didn’t have the highest rated show on the network as a lead-in EVERY week.

    @RS, the two writers who are replacing Edlund were on Supernatural before (they wrote 3 episodes in season 6 – probably the best was the Titanic episode).

    Revolution just has huge problems with focus and with casting people based on their name, instead of writing a role. Elizabeth Mitchell’s role is a mess, as is Billy Burke’s. The whole show is all over the place, just a lot of huffing and puffing to hide the lack of ideas. Edlund could improve episode quality a little because he can plot a coherent episode, but unless he’s taking over an EP position I don’t know what he can do. And his style is so anathema to this show.

  • MichaelChickless

    I’ll probably end up DVRing Revolution next season instead of watching it live like I did this season due to the early hour (especially in the MST where I watch it) and having to often work late.

  • Carl

    @Tony JJ, I’d say it depends on how much you like the actors, or how big a fan you are of Eric Kripke. That’s about it. I’ve always thought he was a little overrated and now I really think it.

  • Vcoolwater

    Arrow is also dealing with a small dip in the rating itself. The last three episodes have been 0.9. It even dipped to 0.8 at the halves once or twice.

    So Arrow is not invincible either. I doubt arrow or revolution going to affect it

  • rob60990

    “how ‘Doomed’ Revolution is”

    For some reason now I don’t think you were talking about me but another poster.

  • Billiam

    I’m just wondering… do any of us actually watch both The Voice and Revolution? I keep hearing about what a great lead-in The Voice is but it would seem that they would each have different types of audiences since they are radically different shows. For example, the women in my house watch The Voice but I can’t stand it. I watch revolution but they don’t…

    So, unless your fingers are broken or hurt so badly from arthritis that you can’t grab the remote and switch the station, I don’t see many Voice fans staying for Revolution… and vice versa.

  • Billiam

    I see some networks playing repeats during the summer but if I were them, I’d release the seasons that just ended like Arrow, to Netflix and let people get caught up or introduced to the show over the summer.

    Summer is when I pick shows on Netflix I’ve never seen before and try them out.

  • RS

    I think that those attacking Rev. on a retention basis are not genre watchers. We are a different breed. The great early numbers were perhaps indebted to its lead-in, but genre viewers quickly discount that factor. If I like it (Supernatural, Rev. (please, Eric K., make this better next season), Grimm, Defiance, Falling Skies, (the just ended) Merlin), I know when it’s on. On Friday night, I channel surf or read a book or computer surf until 8:00 p.m. central time, when I turn on Grimm. What comes before or after is unimportant, except that I might watch a fellow genre show before or after if it is on (Merlin on Syfy). So Rev. now has its core audience. It won’t be affected by a lead-in (particularly a reality show; except for Face-Off and the occasional cooking show, I don’t watch reality television – and this is just opinion, I have no facts, but no one who cut their teeth on Heinlein watches Real Housewives of Anywhere or Dancing with People You’ve Never Heard of). Rev. might be affected by the earlier time or Arrow competition (although I watched both shows this year and was going to abandon Arrow when it moved from Supernatural and killed off the only character I liked). We’ll know next season.

    Top show of the night, showing the best singer – thank you, Amanda <3

  • RS

    @ Carl: Yes, I know they wrote several episodes of SPN. The Titanic episode was the best, but that is saying bad is better than awful. Heaven knows what we’ll get next season. Thompson, a wonderful talent, wrote the abomination, “Bitten.” Glass is inconsistent and favors tweeny guest stars. Daab and Loflin both were great this season, but I haven’t forgiven them for “After School Special” (teen-aged Dean admits to facts that would land Sam in CPS care – I don’t think so).
