Toye Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 27, 2012 After a host of bad episodes, REVOLUTION finally got on track with its penultimate episode of the season, “Children of Men,” which saw the beginning of the explanation behind the Tower plotline that has been building up for quite some time. The biggest question coming from this episode is: What is on Level 12? While not all of the […]Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Paul Grellong Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 20, 2012 Three weeks ago, REVOLUTION delivered one of the best episodes of the season with an emotional and action-packed revealing episode that brought Miles (Billy Burke) and Monroe (David Lyons) back to their hometown. The last two episodes were back to the same villain of the week or survival story of the week progressing the show at a snail’s pace. This week’s episode, “Clue,” continued this downward […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Home”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: David Rambo Director: Jon Cassar Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 29, 2012 In one episode, REVOLUTION was able to bring some of the emotion that should be in this series back to the forefront in “Home.” One of the things that has been sadly missing in this show is any emotion as a result of the actions of the people in the cast. Every regular of this series has had something terrible happen to them […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Ghost”

Miles (Billy Burke) fights militia in REVOLUTION "Ghost" | (c) 2013 NBC/Brownie Harris

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: David Rambo, Melissa Glenn Director: Miguel Sapochnik Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 1, 2013 So REVOLUTION pulled April Fool’s a week early last week. The entire first half of the season was dedicated to finding Charlie’s (Tracy Spirdakos) captured brother, Danny (Graham Rogers), only to kill him off in the opening episode of the second half of the season. Eliminating the entire purpose of the show up until this point. April Fool’s! Sorry fans it […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Kashmir”

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 »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “The Children’s Crusade”

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 »
