    Just watched the pilot. I really enjoyed it. I love the cinematography and how they established everything. I do hope we see them treking long distances and the impact of finding food and shelter.

    I just saw the pilot. I liked it, but I'm not sure if this shows going to be the next "attempt at lost". therefore only last as season.

    parts of it reminded me of lost, like when they find the plane. and of course Elizabeth Michelle (Juliet) was in some of it .

    one thing that bothered me was their clothes. they wouldn't all look like they just bought them from a store. everything would have to be handmade or passed down. so the fact that they all look put together doesn't really make sense.

    The clothes didn't bother me. Didn't you see the clothes in her home village? Some of them looks hand made and some weren't.

    Plus I didn't get a "Lost" vibe. There's no odd supernatural monster or time travel. It is merely the lost of electricity and the struggle to recover it and this girl is caught in the middle of it.

    I liked it for the most part which surely means it will be cancelled. Sorry in advance

    Highly unlikely it will be Netflix. Best bet for currently running seasons is Hulu or the channel the show is running on

    Same here, unfortunately NBC's reputation with cancelling scifi is worse than SyFy.

    I give it 8 episodes before they pull it, even though I liked it.

    If its a total bomb it will take shorter then that. If it is only a tiny failure it will last a full season and then be cancelled. Think "The Event"

    I didn't think it was a total bomb.. Yes they should have done more with the intro, as well as the whole clothing issue (why they look so damn new),.. but otherwise i thought it was good.

    It has promise, but I wasn't blown away by it.

    I'll be interested to see what they come up with to explain how/why electricity stops flowing. And what about the electric current of our bodies?

    Above comments about clothes are relevant, but could be explained away by people gathering what-ever might be useful and storing it for future use.

    As to the uncle,
    Spoiler:
    wouldn't it be easier for him to hunt "Nate" down, kill him before he can get help from the militia, dispose of the body and then go back to his quiet existence?

    I watched next to nothing of "Lost", but I would agree that there wasn't much of a "Lost" vibe. The first show that came to mind was another show of which I didn't watch all that much, "Jericho".

    It intrigued me enough to keep watching...The problem is, the trailer literally gave away almost everything in the pilot. I could have missed this episode, watched the trailer, and only missed one crucial "reveal".


    I don't see it lasting more than a season, though, unless there is a lot more substance in the coming episodes.

    I am only pessimistic due to the failure of Terra Nova and The Event, which was the last comparable show NBC did if I remember correctly.

    I just watched the pilot again...live last night.

    I love it. I don't care about the clothes, some of the villagers' clothes looked sewed together. But I'm not trying to debunk this show piece by piece. I care about how the characters interact and where the story is going.

    I love Eric Kripke and I know he has a set plan for the series, but he also has left room to grow and go in different places.

    My only concern is the writing for the female characters. Off the bat we have the two woman in the group and then the mystery woman.

    Kripke has added female characters during his time on Supernatural, but I don't know if it was just the lack of chemistry between the leads and the ladies or if there was some behind the scenes stuff that prevent those characters from really taking off.

    Obviously now the show is centered on a female lead, so I think for at least this season we are going to see how he handles that. While the first season of Supernatural had Sam as the primary protagonist for the audience to follow into the world and to ask questions for the audience, the show gradually changed IMO to focus on Dead in the latter seasons.

    Hopefully the writers of Revolution are up to the challenge.

    Revolution started off good with a 4.1 HH in the 18-49 demo and 11.65 million viewers. But I caution people for getting too optimistic. Revolution had no competition this week. That will change next week with all the primetime channels airing thie new shows/seasons

    I think I will watch it too, but I am going to wait. I am not confident anymore in these Shows and I do not need to relive Terra Nova all over again.

    Besides that I have more fun anyways just guessing what happened. I have only seen the Trailer so far, but here goes. Some sort of Radiation cloud enveloped Earth that day. Harmless to Humans, but enough to disrupt most electrical currents. The Pendant has a shielding against that radiation and once activated it creates a field that lets Energy flow again. That though throws up a very big question. Who would be powerful enough to create a counter measure and then not use it?

    I already know that answer cant quite be right, because how could you use a Computer Signal to communicate to someone, when everything electrical outside the field gets disrupted.
