Yeah, I'm giving it one more episode for me.  It's not terrible, but I don't want to add a show to my list if I can easily take it or leave it.

I enjoy Revolution but I can see where you're coming from. That's how I feel about Breaking Bad. Not a horrible show, just not all that interesting.

Rico, I've watched several episodes, enough to know that it's just not "my cup of tea". Kind of don't like the premise of the show: high school teacher with a terminal illness making and selling drugs. I like Bryan Cranston, think he's a great actor, but I just don't find this show entertaining.

Rico

That's cool, I can get that even if I find "Breaking Bad" riveting tv and has outstanding performances.  Similar to how I feel about "Dexter."  As far as "Revolution" it's more about the characters for me than just the plot device.  I just don't care for most of them.  So, as they say different strokes for different folks.  :)

QuadShot

Rico, yep. Agreed. And the odd thing is that I LOVE Dexter! Maybe I'm a little hypocritical when it comes to my crime acceptance :)

Well, have you SEEN many small children on the show??? :)

Al. Al. I....just don't know what to say. I can't imagine anyone not like Breaking Bad. My heart breaks for you. ;)

I liked the little nod to the Stand at the beginning of the episode when Miles refers to them as Stuart Redmond and Fanny. I'm sorta liking this show but I can see how others may not have the patience.

There is a farm there, raising chickens are pretty fast and easy. Fry them up and boom. Major calories. It doesn't seem like there is a food shortage or like there were not heavy set people in the agriculture era

X, you do raise an excellent point, and one that I have been bringing up when a lot of folks I know say how unbelievable the show is because of the "overweight" guy. Lack of electricity in NO way means, lack of food. Just lack of PROCESSED food. I see no reason why someone couldn't be chubby even in the Revolution world. You're right: farming, raising livestock, they do have trade centers, we saw them.
