"Revolution" TV show Less than 3 weeks to the premiere now. (September 17). What do you think? Will it be it be silly but fun to watch like Flash Forward, or awful like Flash Gordon? I would love to hear a technobabble explanation for this, but I don't think we'll get one. The show is getting a lot of buzz because it was created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), and because JJ Abrams has slapped his name on it too. The pilot was directed by Jon Favreau. I'm not impressed by the trailer. I see that everyone is pretty, that they're looking for someone, and that there will be fights. But I don't see a reason to care. I hope the first few episodes will give me one. I hope I'm wrong, but I think it's likely that this show will go the same way as Flash Forward, The Event, Alcatraz and Terra Nova, and not be be renewed for a second season.
