Rating: R Stars: Frank Grillo, Elizabeth Mitchell, Mykelti Williamson, Joseph Julian Soria, Betty Gabriel, Terry Serpico, Edwin Hodge, Kyle Secor, Liza Colon-Zayas, Brittany Mirabile, Raymond J. Barry Writer: James DeMonaco Director: James DeMonaco Distributor: Universal Release Date: July 1, 2016 After the original 2013 THE PURGE and its sequel, 2014’s THE PURGE: ANARCHY, writer/director/film series creator James DeMonaco is back with THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR. The biggest joke may be that what’s going on in the real world this year, politically and otherwise, has become so insane that what started as action horror/farfetched political satire now seems like something that’s […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Everyone Says I Love You”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Elizabeth Mitchell, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Collins Writer: Paul Grellong Director: Steve Boyum Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 20, 2013 How many hands believe that Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) is the actual daughter of Miles (Billy Burke) and not Rachel’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) husband from the first season of REVOLUTION? It sure seems like it could be a possibility given the latest flashback was six years prior to the black out. If we add the 15 years after the blackout where the series currently takes place, Charlie is […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Elizabeth Mitchell, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Collins Writer: Anne Cofell Saunders, Matt Pitts Director: Omar Madha Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 6, 2013 One question I found myself asking during the latest episode of REVOLUTION, entitled “The Patriot Act,” was why hasn’t Miles’ (Billy Burke) hand healed at this point? Everyone else that has had injuries have made remarkable recoveries. Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) had both a broken thumb and an arrow to the shoulder and shows no ill will from it. That chick that has been […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – SEASON 2 – “Dead Man Walking”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Collins Writer: Paul Grellong Director: Steve Boyum Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 30, 2013 There were times during REVOLUTION’s latest episode, “Dead Man Walking,” that I had a familiar feeling that the show was once-again delving back into the old format of the eternal battle of a group of rebels taking up arms against a more powerful entity. That same formula that dragged down the show big time in the first season. However, the whole aspect of Monroe (David Lyons) finally […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – SEASON 2 – “One Riot, One Ranger”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Collins Writer: David Rambo, Ben Englund Director: Frederick E. G. Toye Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 23, 2013 The role of Monroe (David Lyons) on the second season of REVOLUTION is an interesting one. He’s a man that has a lot of talents – killing, ruthlessness and no remorse. While on the surface his addition to the group in Texas is one filled with rage and a quest for revenge, they need him. They need his unique talents. That creates […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – SEASON 2 – “Patriot Games”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito Writer: David Rambo Director: Helen Shaver Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 16, 2013 I guess at this point the question has to be asked as to how deep down the rabbit hole does the Patriot group go on REVOLUTION? In “Patriot Games” we saw that those calling themselves the U.S. government has their hands in pretty much every cookie jar going throughout the former country that crumbled after the lights went out. They are obviously making nice with the people in […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – SEASON 2 – “Love Story”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito Writer: David Rambo Director: Helen Shaver Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 9, 2013 It is pretty safe to assume that whoever is claiming to be the U.S. government on REVOLUTION isn’t all that they are cracked up to be. In the amusingly titled “Love Story” we learn that the so-called government has been paying the crazy child molester turned cult leader, Titus, to scare the town of Texas where Rachel, Miles and crew have been holding up since after the bombs […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito Writer: Paul Grellong Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 2, 2013 Well they have certainly have flipped the tables in the second season of REVOLUTION. Gone is the tired war between the rebels and the Monroe (David Lyons) militia and now we are seeing a variety of storylines going for multiple characters and shockingly, extremely shocking, they are all pretty good. First, who knew that a piece of pool tile could be so damn handy? But Monroe sure knew […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Giancarlo Esposito Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Steve Boyum Network: Airs on NBC, Wednesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 25, 2013 Can you say reboot? I know that I can. Apparently, those over at NBC and the producers of REVOLUTION can as well. At the end of Season 1 of REVOLUTION, the culmination of the Tower plotline came to be and we saw that Flynn’s agenda all along was to end the war between the rebels and the Monroe militia by dropping nukes on them. The reason for this […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Creator Eric Kripke on REVOLUTION Season 1 and SUPERNATURAL

NBC’s REVOLUTION, which has its first-season finale tonight, Monday June 3 at 10 PM, has been picked up for a second season. This should offer fans some relief, since right now on the show, the Earth is in danger of catching fire altogether. In REVOLUTION, created by Eric Kripke (who also birthed SUPERNATURAL), under the auspices of Kripke’s fellow executive producer J.J. Abrams, there was a planet-wide blackout fifteen years earlier and electricity has not returned to the masses since. Power-hungry militia leader Monroe (David Lyons) has gotten his hands on some functioning helicopter gun ships. One ofMonroe’s adversaries, Rachel […]Read On »
