Too few science fiction series are given a chance on network (or cable for that matter—and don’t get me started on Syfy, which seems to have a particularly cannibalistic attitude the last few years in its habit of canceling excellent sci-fi series faster than the speed of light) TV to thrive, much less get the sort of promotion Revolution has been given by NBC. So, I'm pulling for Revolution to be a good series, and I wish the creative team much success, hoping that Revolution develops into a complex tale that’s reasonable on the science and wonderfully complex on the fiction. After all, it’s got a great pedigree coming from J.J. Abrams (Star Trek) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural).
And for those of you who can’t wait ‘till Monday to see the premiere, here’s the entire first episode, courtesy of NBC.
Revolution premieres Monday, September 17 at 10:00 p.m. on NBC.
