I actually liked the first episode of Revolution. I had some issues with the pace of the show, but overall, it kept my attention. Let’s see how long it lasts.
The episode opens with a voiceover, recapping the Blackout / Episode 1.
Ok, we are in flashback mode- 1 week post blackout, Ben and his wife (Rachel, whom we are told has died, but I’m not so inclined to believe) are packing up their stuff, talking to a young
Katniss, I mean, Charlie. They tell her that they are going on an adventuree
They are going to walk out of the city and into the country. And Ma and Pa are going to be there. And Nellie and Half-Pint and Doc Baker… Why not be honest? “Honey, we are f’d.”
Ben packs a small wooden box and a gun.
Rachel asks Charlie if she remembers when they lost Danny in Target? (And by lost she means “abandoned.”) Does Charlie remember how FRANTIC Mommy was?
“Yes, but I thought you were off your meds, Mommy.” Charlie replies
Mommy instructs Charlie to NEVER let go of Danny’s hand. NEVER. Ok, that would be awkward when he starts dating or masturbating. But ok. Sounds like a plan.
We see Ben and family walking along, pulling the two kids in one wagon and food in the other. They are walking past abandoned cars, there are smoking fires, etc.
Flashback to present.
Dr Mom, Aaron and Charlie are standing in the middle of the road like “hmmmm, where did Miles go?” (as if he disappeared into thin air)
Cut to Miles in a sword fight with some dude.
We find out he’s a Bounty Hunter. Miles says “Monroe wants me alive right?”
BHD (Bounty Hunter Dude) reply: Yes, but he didn’t say with how many limbs. (really? Who writes this?)
Dr Mom, Aaron and Charlie hear the fight and find Miles, who is about to kill BHD. Charlie stops him because he’s already unconscious- why bother killing him. Um, so he won’t be back to get you in the next scene?
Miles says “One day in and you are already a pain in the ass.” I can’t disagree. So Miles gets Aaron to help drag BHD’s limp body into a box car.
