Saw the ads and thought "Hunger Games" immediately. That's the viewers they want. It will get canceled.

That and my private parts have apparently been balefired.

Watched it last night. I thought it was a mixed bag. Some of the acting was good and some was TERRIBLE! That kid that supposed to be pretending to sleep? Come on! And the story is interesting, but rushed. I mean, they walk to Chicago and into a bar and the first guy they speak to is the one they're looking for? Seriously?

That sounds bad, but actually I enjoyed it overall. I like that fat, bearded computer nerd. They said his name was Aaron and I was all "Perrin!"

Actually the kids dad sent them directly to that bar/hotel so not so rushed. He obviously knew he would be in the place.

Kinda wish they stayed more with the immediate aftermath of the event. I assume there will be plenty of flashbacks though to fill in the 15 year gap.

A lot of questions to be answered. Whats the locket thing and why does that lady have one too? What happened to the Mom? How did a sergeant in the armed forces end up a general and dictator of the local "republic"?

I'll be DVRing in the future. 10 pm start is a litle late for me with a 4am wake up. Plus I've come to despise commercials.

I must have missed that part where her dad told her the name of the hotel. My friend pointed that out to me.

I am assuming it will be a lot like Lost as far as flashbacks in the storytelling process.

But that kid pretending to sleep?

>,< I'm asleep!!!

One bit I am having trouble believing is the existing US government (and other nations too, I'm guessing) collapsing because of no electricity. The USA existed for more than a hundred years without all the things that don't work anymore. The Roman Empire lasted for centuries without electric power. So how does not having it mean that existing countries can't hold together? Is it so hard to take things back and retool to an 1850 society?

'

Take your heating, or cooling.
Today, most housing uses elecric heat.
Remove electricity, and now a significant portion of your population, has no way to heat their homes through out the winter.

No electricity, means now way to process fuels, for your cars to run. No cars, means, supplies from manufacturersr, don't get into cities. Cities would fall into chaos without any food coming in after 2 days.

I watched it. Personally I think the acting was very stale. And they have magic USB devices that are totally unrealistic. I'd put money on it being canceled. I just realized the girl in that show was a werewolf girl in the U.S. adaptation of Being Human. Which I think is a badass show.

Well you'd have to watch it. I'm being sarcastic just because the usb device they have is sortof the crux of the show. But what you see it do at the very end of the pilot, because another person has one, to me is just lame and unimaginative.

the main thing with the collapse of the US Government is that the size of the USA woudln't allow for a centeralized Fed. the original 13 colonies and immediate surround states which could be reached on Horseback in 24 hours woudl be fine, but the Centeral and Western part of the US would fall to war lords and the such.


if you think abotuit, the only reason the US was able to expand westward and adopt those areas as part of the US rather than as territories is becuase of the Telegram system; something which needed electricity.

also, Basel, you discount the fact that the US has had electricity since its inception as a sovern nation, as Franklin was the inventor of the conductor. the US Federal Gov was able to control up to the Mississippi River, but beyond that without electricity and the Telegram, these areas were beyong the Federal Goves reach. but i do agree that a form of the Centralized gov would still exist, but as far as being in control, you have to take into accout Gangs (liek MS13, Crips and such) as well as the Military. in this sort of scenario, we'd revert back to pre-westward expansion and the group that was most organized and had the most guns would be the government of any one area.

I figured out why I was confused about revolution.
I was confusing it with something that actually looked good.

It is on our list of DVR'd shows and it is mildly entertaining so far. The writing is pretty crappy, as well as most of the acting. Great potential....but I agree likely to not make it to season 2.

Pretty much agree with what most have already said, great potential, but stale acting and poor writing.

Also, I already hate that guy with the bow.

I'm having a hard time caring or sympathizing with Charlie. I really don't like her, makes it hard to watch the show.
