  • fourat sakka

  • Ashley Crawford

    I hope it gets renewed.

  • Lukel

    NBC should really put Revolution back to 10:00. I think it would have a good chance at beating Nashville.

  • One eye

    This season of revolution is really good, wonder why the ratings are so weak.

  • maria

    The show is starting to get over the horrific Charlie casting from first season. Now that other characters have taken over, it’s much, much better. Mystery is developing as well, and that makes it more fun.

  • Revolution addict

    It just keeps getting better and better. It’s the only show that I MUST watch. I hope Revolution does not go the way of former favorite shows of mine like Jericho.

    Make it last!!!!
