Revolution: JJ Abrams, SciFi, Post-Apocalypse

Sounds great right?

The only worry is that NBC is picking it up.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/02/02/j-j-abrams-nbc/

Quote:
NBC has picked up a new drama pilot from the Star Trek director and Warner Bros. TV. The logline: “A high octane action drama from J. J. Abrams following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.”

Now that’s the rather cryptic official description. But here’s an earlier, more exciting logline with more detail:“In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.”

The show I want to see succeed this fall is Last Resort. Big fan of Andre Brauger (and Shawn Ryan). Although Vegas looks kind of cool, conceptually, as well.

I don't know that I've read much of a positive word on the pilot, at least so far.

'course part of the problem is that we're in a society that, while on one hand we've grown to like serialized drama, on the other, we're not patient enough to invest more than a week or two into anything. So it's a hard mountain to climb getting a new show to stick, or getting people to watch long enough for the show to grow and improve.

The early word on Vegas is that it's really good and really cool. IMO, they couldn't have chosen two better actors to lead the show. I hope it's kinda like Michael Mann's old series, Crime Story, but I'm betting it's less stylistic and more "CBS" accessible.

The biggest bummer is that Vegas, or Vega$, is a series name that is already in lexicon. Hopefully, they'll reference Dan Tana at some point (which is actually an Italian restaurant on the corner of Santa Monica & Doheny that Frank Sinatra used to frequent in the 60's. GREAT place that's still there today).

I would LOVE a serialized drama and much like Game of Thrones for example, I think other people love it, too.

The problem is that J.J. Abrams, through LOST, has ruined the "high-concept" serial. I just don't trust him and I don't think this will last because most people I speak to don't trust him, either.

Oh, I agree with that, I was more commenting on how quickly we give up on shows these days. If they aren't the 'best thing ever!' right from the first second of the pilot, we just give up and watch something else. It's like we've forgotten that sometimes things can be a slow burn. 'course part of that is having so ridiculously many options at our fingertips. Why waste time on something that looks meh when there's 700 other channels to flip through?

I have Uverse and the pilot is available already on demand. I'll try and watch it tonight maybe. I'm pretty sure it's widely available online as well.

I'm sick of post apocolyptic and its NBC. This thing is doomed from the start. I'm not wasting my time on it.

in short....

Not worth it.

I think that Fringe was a somewhat of a "slow burn" but it's got a solid following, especially with DVR numbers and the fact it's on a Friday night. I'm looking forward to the final 13 episodes but hope it continues in some form, as Josh has hinted.

One of the main reasons why I think Revolution will fail is that Alcatraz was getting 6.7 million viewers on a Monday night not including DVR, yet was canceled. That leads me to believe that Fox didn't want to get into a "LOST" type situation and have a series with no true resolution.

The final few episodes were beginning to feel more and more like Lost, especially since they continually referenced "The Island".

Lindelof is a dickfoot.

Ok, I'm like 5 minutes into this thing and it's dumb. Planes falling from the sky, then it starts 15 years after the power goes out and nobody has aged one bit. Fail so far.

actually they aged quite a bit, problem is the people they showed in the previous 15 years are only 3 people. The Brothers and the Militia dude.

Its not bad, ill give it a few episodes before i decide one way or another. The end of thedamn episode was pretty decent.
