“Revolution”: New NBC drama entertaining
“Revolution,” from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, is an adventure drama centered on an American family and a group of fellow survivors on a mission 15 years after a mysterious technology blackout.
Danny Matheson (Graham Rogers) has been kidnapped by militia leaders and his sister Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) needs to track down her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke), a former U.S. Marine, for help in rescuing Danny and in overthrowing the militia.
I enjoyed the pilot episode – the mystery behind what caused the blackout is intriguing and there are some nice twists which make the story interesting. Burke is fun to watch in his role as well.
“Revolution” has me hooked for the moment – hopefully future episodes will live up to its potential.
Zak Orth, JD Pardo, Giancarlo Esposito, David Lyons, Maria Howell, Daniealla Alonso, Tim Guinee and Elizabeth Mitchell also star in the series.
Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk (“Lost”) are executive producers, with Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) serving as co-executive producer. Favreau also directed the pilot.
The “Revolution” pilot episode is available for viewing now on www.nbc.com and the show premieres at 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17 on NBC.
