What we said then:
"The track records of the people in front of and behind the camera on 'Revolution' will probably keep us watching for at least a few more weeks. But a cool premise can only take a show so far
, and there's some work to do on the character front."
What we say now:
Although the show is still plagued by logic questions and cheesy action scenes, and it's consistently upstaged on the post-apocalyptic action-drama front by "The Walking Dead," "Revolution" has at least managed to keep its story moving forward at a steady pace and developed satisfyingly complex characters for cast standouts Billy Burke, Elizabeth Mitchell and Giancarlo Esposito. As for the others, well, killing off characters is always a good way to keep the audience guessing, right?
