While many major network shows found themselves preempted for news coverage this week, NBC made at least one deliberate choice regarding its schedule that has some scratching their heads. After its highest-rated new series 'Revolution' wraps up its initial run of episodes in November, we won't see any new episodes until March! There is a bit of good news, however, as the series has just cast 'Taken' star Leland Orser and 'Sons of Anarchy' vet Patrick St. Esprit! So, who will the character actors portray?
Dare we say it, is NBC in the beginnings of a comeback? Though consistently beaten in the ratings by the likes of CBS, FOX, and ABC, the peacock has been on an upswing this season with a number of buzz-worthy shows, as well as a rare win in the recent premiere week. Well, you've got to go with what works, so here's to full-season orders of 'Revolution,' and the network's new hit comedies 'Go On' and 'The New Normal!'
Those who caught last night's all new 'Revolution' episode "Chained Heat" (and if you didn't, why not?) might have noticed a startingly familiar face walking about: 'Justified' star David Meunier! Meunier took the role of General Monroe's torturous Sgt. Strausser, but does that mean that Meunier's 'Justified' character Johnny Crowder won't be present for the upcoming fourth season? And if so, how many episodes will he be around for?
Even though 'Revolution' provided NBC with one of its most successful pilot debuts to date at 11 million viewers, it still has a heavy burden to carry in hooking viewers beyond its unique premise.
Next Monday will see the official debut of 'Revolution's' second episode "Chained Heat," as Charlie (Tracy Spiradakos), her uncle Miles (Billy Burke) and the rest out on the de-lectrified landscape seek to rescue her brother from Captain Neville (Giancarlo Esposito), but do they really have a shot? According to the latest clip, what troubles lie along the way?
Whether or not you enjoyed the pilot episode of NBC's post-apocalyptic thriller 'Revolution' (we did!), there's no denying that America caught the buzz with a record 11 million viewers. Now, the world waits on bated breath to see if the show can continue on well enough beyond its premiere, with Charlie (Tracy Spiradakos), her uncle Miles (Billy Burke) and the rest out on the de-lectrified landscape, but what new characters might we meet? How about Mark Pellegrino, Todd Stashwick and Colin Ford, all 'Supernatural' alum of show-runner Eric Kripke's?
The fall season of TV is set to begin any day now, heaving dozens of new shows at the audience from the return of their summer-long favorites to the fresh crop of originals to be mowed through. One new series we're adamant deserves a fair shake despite its ominous presence on NBC is that of the Jon Favreau-directed and Eric Kripke created 'Revolution,' so how would you like to get things started by checking out the full pilot before it airs?
Certainly, the stars of 'LOST' haven't had trouble finding work (R.I.P. 'Alcatraz')following the end of the critically acclaimed, oft-debated series, but we're always happy to see a 'LOST'-ie back on the tube. Already having one island-dweller on its side, NBC's forthcoming J.J. Abrams drama 'Revolution' has picked up yet another castaway, but for how long? And will they finally tell us what the deal with the Smoke Monster was?
We feel a great swell of pity for NBC's 'Revolution,' which despite a pretty stellar cast and premise is likely to engage in an uphill battle with viewers, the way so many high-concept sci-fi series have struggled to find homes on major networks. 'Revolution' is definitely worth a shot, especially after what we saw at Comic-Con 2012, but now you can judge for yourself after checking out the full-length preview! Plus, what secrets lie within?
Certainly one show we're keeping our eye on for the fall is that of the J.J. Abrams-produced, Jon Favreau-directed Eric Kripke post-apocalyptic drama 'Revolution,' for more reasons than the mouthful we just described. As one of the more highly-anticipated pilots, even the screening we saw at Comic-Con 2012 left us with a few head-scratching questions, so who better to answer than Kripke and Favreau themselves?
Power is everything! Though you won’t be able to check out the pilot of NBC’s ‘Revolution’ until it’s debut on Monday, September 17, we were on hand at Comic-Con 2012 to both preview the first episode, and speak with its cast and crew, including ‘Twilight’s' Billy Burke, ‘Supernatural’ creator Eric Kripke and former ‘Breaking Bad’ star Giancarlo Esposito? So, what did we think?
