    EXCLUSIVE: With 2 new series, Person of Interest and Alcatraz, one returning, Fringe, and a Star Trek movie sequel on his plate, it wasn’t clear whether J.J. Abrams would be developing this year. He did and the result, a drama written by Supernatural creator/executive producer Eric Kripke, has gotten a pilot production commitment from NBC. Like most things JJ, details about the project titled Revolution are being kept under wraps but it’s being described as an epic adventure thriller. It hails from Abrams’ Bad Robot production company and Warner Bros. TV where the company is based. Abrams, Kripke and Bryan Burk are executive producing.
    This is the second high-profile project for WME-repped Kripke this season. He also is writing/executive producing an adaptation of the DC Comic Deadman for the CW and WBTV.

    The thing is she is still a mega *****, there is no balance to the characters actions. If she was on the other side then sure it would work, but there's no balance, she's all ice face all the time.

    I think Daniella Alonso has made her mark with this role, she'll get a steady stream of work now, hopefully something where she is a lead actress, unless she goes back to the character she was gonna play in Rizzoli & Isles before Revolution came up and she left.

    She amazingly is even less empathetic than Monroe and Neville, she switches between being a ***** and having this hazy defeatist expression, and it sucks because I like me some Lizzy Mitchell & her chest canons.

    I wonder if they might have to form an unholy trinity?

    Was blown away by the season finale. I freaking LOVED IT!


    My theory on...
    The lighting storm. They said the nanites were all around the, in the air, etc... I think deactivating the nanites will cause SERIOUS global enviromental problems. It's my belief that they were actually interacting with nature and by instantly shutting them down there is going to be major enviromental consequences.

    Hopefully next season will be a lot more Sci-Fi in nature because the ongoing war was starting to become a real bore.

    Well it is a show called Revolution, one would assume that war/revolution would be an integral plot element.

    Yeah the war scenes were a bit on the weakside. With power available to everyone. Hopefully they can amp it up. If the budget is there.

    I just don't want them to abandon sword-play and crossbow stuff.

    I'll be bored if Miles gets another love interest. It feels like he's already had, like, 20 in the first season alone. Monroe might be more interesting, given that he's entirely on his own. Or Aaron. That dude definitely needs to get some.

    Interesting route for season 2, it seems like they have more to work with and I'm digging that sexy Lady giving the Patriots speech.

    According to TV Guide, Stephen Collins (who is really getting around on post-apocalyptic shows recently) is playing Rachel's father. :up:
