Audience Reviews for Revolution: Season 1
Dec 16, 2020Best thing I have accidentally came across in my life.
Oct 19, 2020The main issue is the subtitles. It's as if most are too dumb to understand English so the subtitles are dumbed down for simplicity.
Oct 29, 2019Nothing about this show works. The story, the physics, nothing!
Aug 11, 2019Too violent for my tastes.
Sep 07, 2018I was hooked on this!
Nov 08, 2016The whole show and concept is awesome. Love the scifi!
Sep 18, 2015Really below average acting. The guy that is supposed to be a mass murderer is pretty wimpy. Nothing ever explains why the government just collapsed because the power went out.
Jun 26, 2014Revolution started with a great deal of promise, not to mention a cast that was surprisingly solid. Within a few episodes however, these strengths were squandered on an absolutely ludicrous plot and extremely poor action sequences, not to mention wooden dialogue and an increasingly confusing storyline. Ultimately Revolution was nothing more than a sub-par attempt to mine the post-apocalyptic genre for a few viewers.
Jun 14, 2014So, what's so special about Revolution? Well, Revolution was different from all of the other shows in the genre. The writers weren't afraid to kill off popular characters which added to the overall suspense/tension levels when one of them was facing a perilous situation, because the viewer had no mental safety-net telling them that everything was going to be ok? It had a whole host of characters and I loved them all (even as I was hating some of them, I still loved their dynamic within the show), and I loved that we got to see how the characters developed from one episode to the next. In such a Dystopian future, the temptation would be very strong to have an "every man for himself" attitude, but our ragtag heroes constantly put others' needs ahead of their own, and in doing so developed into a makeshift family. Of course, as with all families there's bickering, snarkiness, and attitude every now & again but at its very core is love, and a steely determination to protect the other members - THAT is what made Revolution viewers return week after week, the all too human nature of its main characters! Time and time again we saw them make mistakes, time and time again we saw them work to fix them, because in a post apocalyptic world, the thing that people need most to survive, is other people! Of course, viewers also loved the sword fights, the hand to hand combat, the explosions (we are, afterall, only human?), but we also loved the Machiavellian machinations of the villains (most notably Tom Neville), and we were finally getting to the crux of the whole matter with the Nanos! Revolution had a great storyline, it had heroes and anti-heroes, it had lots of action, it had reel to reel awesome characters, none of whom was perfect ? but hey, they were trying! Revolution made a person think about what kind of person they themselves would be, given the same set of circumstances! Revolution was funny with some quite poignant moments, it had an awesome cast with obvious chemistry, and like I said, it had sword fights (lots & lots of sword fights - yay!), but I believe its main selling point was its characters and their devotion to each other (the fact that it had a cast that was exceptionally easy on the eye didn't hurt either...)!
May 29, 2014This isn't the post-apocalyptic world that the world is used to. When we think apocalypse, we usually think "zombies or natural disasters". Revolution is set in a world where the apocalypse is brought about when the electricity powering everything in our world suddenly stops working. Revolution is a fun, entertaining show that left me on the edge of my seat after every episode and made me want more every time. So if you are looking for a TV show that offers up intense action, a strong political underside and amazing characters, this is the show for you.
