I'm going to watch it. It looks good doesn't it?

HighBrows Mon 25-Mar-13 19:12:35

I'm going to give it a good it looks good but the reviews coming out of the US are awful!

But I did love Lost except for the shit ending so I'll give it a go!

DevlinMaccabee Mon 25-Mar-13 20:26:56

I'm gonna watch it, we seem to like the same programmes LAB grin

StealthPolarBear Mon 25-Mar-13 20:27:57

So excitrd...does it clash with zombies tho

PersonalClown Mon 25-Mar-13 20:28:54

Seen the first episode already. A bit meh.
I'm hoping it picks up.

It's pretty crap really.

<waves to Devlin> I liked Lost too, apart from the shite ending. I will record the first two episodes and watch on Saturday probably. Some programmes take two or three episodes to get into their stride, but if the characters are likeable then that's the biggie because if you don't like or empathise with anyone it's doomed! It was the characters that made Lost.

I've noticed too some of the cast from Lost are in this. I hope it's good.

I'm in smile

marjproops Thu 28-Mar-13 18:42:25

whos the cast? anyone know?

Always find with JJ his progs always start out good and then completely lose their way and have really lame endings

StealthPolarBear Thu 28-Mar-13 19:38:07

Yes that was it with lost. Started so well but lost its way

marjproops Thu 28-Mar-13 19:40:29

Didnt he do Heroes as well? oh my giddy aunt,, that COMPLETELY ended up as turd in the end.

redlac Thu 28-Mar-13 19:49:48

I loved Heroes (and Lost) and this is not a patch on either of those (even the crappy endings of both). Watched 3 episodes of Revolution and didnt bother watching any more

Only good thing in Revolution is the dude who played Bella's dad in Twilight

I loved Heroes too, especially Sylar! That all went tits up and suddenly ended too. I think JJ Abrams has so many ideas and fingers in so many pies that he starts other projects before finishing properly what he started IYKWIM. He has taken the helm of Star Trek and Star Wars films too.

DevlinMaccabee Fri 29-Mar-13 23:27:51

So what did you think?

It was ok, loved the Kill Bill style sword fighting wink

ThatVikRinA22 Fri 29-Mar-13 23:30:00

he did fringe though....the most perfectly brilliant series ever.

im taping revolution.

I watched it last night. It was ok. I love Elizabeth Mitchell, she was in Lost and V. I don't want to say too much for those who haven't seen it yet.

ThatVikRinA22 Mon 01-Apr-13 22:53:15

seen the first 2....

still watching......

Otherworld Mon 01-Apr-13 23:43:13

Just watched the first two.

It's a little bit familiar - little bit Lost, little bit Walking Dead with a sprinkling of I Am Legend.

Why so many horses though? Steam trains? Bicycles maybe?

LittleAbruzzenBear Tue 02-Apr-13 07:30:34

I agree with you that it's a bit of Lost etc. Yes, good point about the horses!

I only realised where I recognised Miles from last night, he is Bella's father in Twilight! The niece was in a Supernatural episode. Most of the cast have been in various CSIs too!
