First up is the upcoming NBC action/drama Revolution.
Geek Syndicate said: "getting harder to be enthusiastic when I hear about another [post apocalyptic show] coming to our screens, even if it is being helmed by JJ Abrams." Ouch. Kevin Melrose at Spinoff Online was a little more optimistic, but still cautious: "It’s certainly ambitious, even for Abrams and Kripke, and destined to be either a solid Monday-night performer — though probably never a certifiable hit — or a glorious disaster. And after watching the new extended trailer below, I’m leaning more toward the former than the latter."
I will probably end up watching Revolution, so stay tuned for my review of the premier episode next month. In the meantime, here is something lovers of the Victorian era can enjoy: Ripper Street.
Well I went from pessimistic, to optimistic and now to outright disgust. I finish this post with the trailer to the Red Dawn remake.
