Revolution just wrapped up it’s freshman season yesterday, ending on a high note ratings wise. 6.3 million viewers tuned in to see if the power got turned back on. I’m sure this means nothing to NBC and that the execs over there are hard a work figuring out new ways to kill decent shows.
As with other shows like Game of Thrones, there were a bunch of surprises and twists. It wouldn’t be a JJ Abrams show without them. Look, the show is no Lost, which the other writers here at MWTVG continually fail to recognize as the greatest serial drama show ever (if you want, I would allow Friday Night Lights, but get that weak sauce 24 out of here).
I thought the show really picked up steam after it’s inexplicable 4 month mid-season break. All in all, it was a good first season. When NBC abruptly cancels this show, I now at least know why the power went out, at least I think I do.
