Revolution - NBC

My prediction - the first couple of episodes will be really good and then it will get repetitive and boring. Or it will stay good but be way to expensive for the network to finish.

IMO.. each episode is becoming worse then the one previous. Episode 4 is the worst with hardly any fighting but rather flashback scenes. What the show has going for them right now is just the Miles character.

I'm not hating on the flashbacks, even if it is a complete steal from his old show. It helps develop the characters if done right. Problem is they are more for information than twists. Last episode I thought they did well the flashbacks building an impact with the woman dying and showing that the kid they caught is the son of the black militia man. Sorry I can't remember their names right now.

To me, the key is how deep they make the necklace "mythology" and how many twists they can add to it. With the acting they have, the story needs to get deeper. The story really protected the poor acting with some of the characters on Lost, ie Jack and Kate.

I just keep waiting for someone to stab that militia captain (or whatever rank) in the face. His character is easily someone to hate. But yeah, the show is slow moving and I'm getting bored. Heroes got like that but at least the first season was really good.

At least until the last episode when they completely made the entire season a waste.

As I recall they renewed it before the big mid-season break. Then the ratings tanked for the second half of the year. I wouldn't be surprised if it was on a short leash this fall.

It's stupid shit like this (that could easily be fixed) that bothers me.

Your post is stupid shit, and it bothers me.

'Modern' fly-by-wire aircraft (787, 777, A320, A330, A340, A380) which do not have any mechanical backups (except IIRC for the rudder and some trim on the Airbus and 777 planes) would literally fall out of the sky. These aircraft typically have triple redundant electrical and hydraulic systems...but in situation where all electronics are toast, bad things would definitely happen.

A lot of aircraft do have some kind of mechanical backup, but certainly not all. In many, things like air-fuel mixture and other things are completely computer controlled as well.
