Anyone watch "Revolution"

Its by JJ Abrams & Jon Favreau... both of which have good credit to their name. It was actually pretty good!

The previews look like it was produced by the people who made Power Rangers.

I'm really enjoying the show. It's really over dramatic but it seems to be leveling out. I'm curious if they have enough for a second season. It seems to be going rather quickly through material.

Also on a side note: I wish Alcatraz and Terra Nova didn't get canned. I thought they would've went on for a while.

I like it! Agreed tho, going thru quickly - if there's a 2nd season it could cause it to do poorly. I never saw Alcatraz but watched all of Terra Nova, wish Netflix kept it going.

Yeah. It was super expensive to produce though. They didn't have that many dinosaurs to cgi though so wherever the shot must have had inflated prices.

Alcatraz was pretty cool. If it ever comes on netflix I'd watch it again. Wasn't a big fan of the girl(now in Vegas which is also pretty cool) but the story was pretty believable in terms on government conspiracies. Just not the execution.

Haven't caught revolution, but really enjoyed Terra Nova.


The thing about post apocalypse shows always seems the same- find food, find power, find medicine- repeat.

Jericho was like that. Great first season but they ran out of material real quick

Revolution isn't really find food and medicine specifically. Medicine is just a sub plot at one point. Unfortunately it is all about power but the main used story line is rescuing someone.

Also, if you think about it all shows are the same. Cop shows are cop shows, dramas are dramas and so on. They just re use the ideas lol.

I am watching it but I said after the first show to myself when are they going to figure out that steam engines will work and Diesels as well as sailing ships.

It took them 20 years to figure out on the steam it seems.

Duh

I think it was more along the lines of "We gotta build this thing to use it" so it's feasible that it could take 15 years to build a train with hand tools I guess. How would you start a diesel without the plugs? It seems like you'd need a team of mules to get it going with such high compression, automatic wise.

they got the steam engine train out of a museum if I remember right.

We got some near here that they give rides on and if you remember they were in Charleston SC and that is only about 110 miles from here.

Diesels only plug is a glow plug and I can start my tractors down south with out useing them.

Up North if it's cold. you may need to heat the intake manifold some with a small torch since the glow plug wouldn't work.

Take a tractor and push it to a step hill let if start rollling down the hill in gear and let the clutch out or get a bunch of men or horses and pull start it.

Once you get one tractor started use it to pull start other things.

A diesels does not need electricity to run but the lights will not work.

I have pull started diesel tractors with dead batteries.

It will work and you can make corn oil or soy oil in a pinch if you can't find any diesel readily.

That makes sense. It looked like they built it though. Or they were doing a ton of work on it at least.
