Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Jim Barnes Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 19, 2012 Everything that is wrong with REVOLUTION can be summed up in the episode “Kashmir.” Not only did NBC give viewers of the show another empty promise in delivering the confrontation between Monroe (David Lyons) and Miles (Billy Burke), it gave us an entire episode that literally did nothing but move the gang from Point A to Point B with yet more mean, nasty […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Matt Pitts Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 5, 2012 The promos for this week’s REVOLUTION, “The Children’s Crusade,” billed this to be the episode where all the answers you want about the power going off are explained. Haha, that’s funny because none of that happened. Yeah, we got some clues about why it happened – the Department of Defense (or specifically Randall from that organization) teaming up with a small research company […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Sex and Drugs”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: David Rambo Director: Steve Boyum Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 29, 2012 So, how’s that whole “wanting to see the world” thing working out for you Charlie (Tracy Spirdakos)? There were some decent aspects to REVOLUTION this week but as with most of the episodes so far this season, “Sex and Drugs” also had some pointless and fairly stupid aspects as well. After the last episode with Nora (Daniella Alonso) getting shanked by her own […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Soul Train”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers Writer: Paul Grellong Director: Jon Cassar Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 15, 2012 Through four episodes of REVOLUTION, I have been constantly singing the praises of Giancarlo Esposito’s character of Captain Tom Neville, one of the henchmen to General Monroe (David Lyons) out in the field doing his dirty work. Neville has been one of the most interesting characters on the show and his subplot involving a battle of wills with Danny (Graham Rogers) has been one of […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell Writer: Anne Cofell Saunders Director: Félix Enríquez Alcalá Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 8, 2012 The fourth episode of REVOLUTION, “The Plague Dogs,” gave us a breather in terms of the whole Monroe Militia vs. the resistance storyline that beleaguered the show for the past few episodes. The show actually took a direction I had hoped it would take in focusing on maybe some of the people impacted by the changed world – for better or worse – and have […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “No Quarter”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Monica Owusu-Breen Director: Sanford Bookstaver Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 1, 2012 The third episode of REVOLUTION, “No Quarter,” had more poopy sad faces from Charlie (Tracy Spirdakos) than you could shake a stick at. Every scene was a close up of her sad, crying face acting like someone had just kicked her puppy. It was annoying. I understand she is “new to all this” in that she hasn’t been outside her small village until just a few days ago. But […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Chained Heat”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 24, 2012 Well things have certainly come to a grinding halt on REVOLUTION after a very impressive “Pilot” episode where it was wall to wall action and a whole handful of good ideas. “Chained Heat” isn’t nearly as good as the opening episode which seems to sometimes be the case with big opening episodes that are targeted to grab the viewers’ attention and then subsequently falter to deliver in the following […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Jon Favreau Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 17, 2012 What happens when you take the brains behind one of the most successful horror television series, SUPERNATURAL, and combine the brains behind LOST, ALIAS and the relaunch of STAR TREK and mix it with the guy who directed IRON MAN and IRON MAN 2 – a pretty damn good pilot. REVOLUTION is the interesting idea from Erik Kripe (SUPERNATURAL), JJ Abrams (LOST, ALIAS) and Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) about […]Read On »

Cast: Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Byron Brockmann, Shelly Conn, Stephan Lang, Simone Kessell, Landon Liborion, Allison Miller Director: Nelson McCormick Writers: Byrnn Malone Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8pm Original Telecast: Oct. 10, 201 I really thought the dinosaurs in the pilot episode of TERRA NOVA were pretty good, well, as long as they didn’t move and just sat there looking big and dumb, but these last two episodes, wow, the special effects have gone from SyFy Channel quality to a notch above Ray Harryhausen. OK maybe that’s a bit harsh. Much like the special effects, the storylines in […]Read On »

In OUTCASTS, the world has gone so much to hell that they made the choice to abandon the planet in favor of a new habitable […]Read On »
