Initial Thoughts on Revolution

NBC has been hyping its new show Revolution for weeks and last Monday night it premiered. The concept behind Revolution is what would happen if all the technology and electricity in the world suddenly stopped working? In the beginning of the first episode this is what happens. The power around the world goes out, planes fall out of the sky, and everyone is sent hundreds of years back in time as far as how we all live. All modern technology no longer works. The show jumps fifteen years after the power goes out and US Government has fallen apart. The story follows a teenage girl as she journeys to find her uncle who she has never met to assist her and her friends to rescue her brother who has been kidnapped by a rogue militia. Her brother is kidnapped because the militia tried to capture her father and ended up killing him in the process and took the brother instead. The militia feels her father and uncle may have the key to turning the power back on. Even though the concept sounds good, Revolution fails to have any character development. The characters are boring and fail to make a connection with viewers. When the commercials first started airing for this show I immediately thought they adapted a book called Dies the Fire by S.M. Stirling where a similar event happens that changes the way physics around the world works. All technology no longer works like in Revolution but other things such as gun powder has changed as well. Unlike Revolution, the characters in Dies the Fire are fairly well developed and by the end of the book readers become attached to them. Hopefully Revolution will take some ideas from Dies the Fire and develop the characters better. For now I plan on watching a few more episodes and give the show a better chance to grow on me.

Revolution airs Mondays on NBC at 10 PM and is directed by Jon Favreau and produced by J.J. Abrams.
