Anybody watching this? Has it's ups and downs but so far I'm enjoying it.

Stopped watching After three episodes. But I do like that submarine show and 666 Park Ave.

Ah, yeah it only started being any good after the first few. Haven't watched either of those yet but they do look pretty good.

What's that about ?

Revolution? Not a clue.
IMDB wrote:A group of revolutionaries must battle a governing dictatorial militia 15 years after an instantaneous global shutdown of all electronic devices known as the Blackout.


Sound like a watered down The Day, which if you haven't seen then shame on you, go away and watch it at once.
Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.

I have watched the first 6 episodes now and although not fantastic, I find it very entertaining.

I shall do that.
I like to wait for a few seasons and/or episodes at least so I don't get the wait for next one syndrome, it was bad enough when I was a kid and there was no internet.

I know that, but I deliberately changed it because this wouldn't work otherwise
it was "The Day"
it was "Those Days" (that were)

;)

Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way....



And you have only yourselves to blame, I'm merely a conduct of causality here.

I've been watching this one, but it's a little borderline for me; not much else going on in tv land these days, so why not? It's been disappointing from a science perspective, though. Just these gadgets that cause this anti-electical field, with no explanation at all of how they work. I like some of the characters, however, especially that guy who played the drug lord on Breaking Bad.
