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.”

I don't think the first issue is a hole, its just a big part of the story not told yet. The second issue you have is legit though.

Which brings us to one of the most annoying aspects of Lost - episodes that were almost completely flashbacks that advanced the linear story about 5 minutes. God I hated that - I nearly quit watching in Season 2 because of that and later wished I had.

I guess this time the backstory is more interesting than the present story, though, so maybe flashbacks will be a good thing.

The more I think about this the more annoyed I'm getting. **** you, Abrams. I hope you don't plan on getting all flashbacky in the next Star Trek movie.

I liked the way Lost was. I am probably more patient than most TV viewers are. Not saying you aren't patient or not justified in your anger, just saying I am maybe patient to a fault. I also really liked his Star Trek movie but am not a Star Trek viewer so I can't really judge it in that way.

I liked all the seasons of Lost. Wasn't a fan of the ending as most weren't but I didn't freak out about it. I still enjoyed the series. The one thing is I used to be able to watch the reruns, after seeing the ending I can't. People who watched it on DVD sure got a huge help though not having to wait 6 months for the premiere each year.

The LOST ending sucked so much as that if Lindelof were a chick, I'd skull**** her upon sight.

**** LOST, **** Lindelof and his snide, shitty attitude and **** Carlton Cuse.

Actually that was probably fairly accurate (perhaps the most accurate part of it). Nature reclaims civilization in a hurry when it isn't tended to.

Haha fair enough. It didn't reflect the work they put into the rest of the show, that's for sure. Lendelof and Cuse had done a good job up until then.

I'm sort of that way with Battlestar Galactica, too, although not nearly to the same extent, since it was an infinitely better show. However.....

If the Cylons were created by man, how in the **** did some of them end up being reincarnated from other Cylons who had lived on another planet halfway across the galaxy centuries earlier? And what was the deal with the angels? And why the **** would everybody wander off alone on a new, unexplored planet and shitcan all of their ships and technology? And.... ****, I could go on all night, but I guess what I'm saying is that often the trip is better than the destination.

Yep. I find footage of Pripyat (near Chernobyl) fascinating. Modern city, forever abandoned. It's amazing how much nature has encroached on it. The area near the power plant in Japan will be the same way.

I doubt JJ is very involved with this, if at all. He's taken a hands off approach to all of "his" television shows for awhile now.
