Anyone still watching? It feels like this series is finally hitting its stride...
When does it start?
New season premiered tonight at 8. I think they put it on Hulu pretty quickly if you missed it.
What's going on with the white kid with the yellow skin on Revolution?
I gave up after three or four episodes last year. I haven't heard anything to make me rethink that decision.
So how was the season two premiere?
Thanks for the head up, OP. I didn't think season 2 started until next month. This show is so craptacular that I can't help liking it.
I agree it kinda sucked last year until the last half dozen episodes or so. I stuck with it because someone I know works on it. Tonight's episode was pretty good though. Maybe an anomaly, but hopefully a sign of good things to come.
Colm Feore was the only redeeming thing about this show. Too bad he's gone.
Damn, Stephen Collins is looking old now!
I tried really hard to make it through Season 1 on netflix. I love the concept. I got through episode 7 because I like to see things through but just couldn't take it anymore, despite Gus Fring as part of the cast.
The dialogue and acting is really bad. And the main character looks like she grew up in a trailer park and I was not interested in her, nor was her behavior plausible for her situation.
I rate the show D+.
Same, R10. Even Giancarlo Esposito's deliciously expert scenery-chewing couldn't save it for me.
The lead actress is hot enough, but I couldn't take her crying in every episode.
And I still want to know where they're all getting their awesome leather jackets.
I liked it.
Was sad for a few minutes after some events. But glad to see it wasn't the case.
They need more scenes between Miles and Monroe. They really do have great chemistry.
For anyone curious, the power was only on for a couple of minutes total - apparently not long enough to play an entire record on a jukebox in that one bar.
Elizabeth Mitchell had Google Guy shut it back down as soon as Colm Fiore launched the nukes (and shot himself in the head) as we saw at the end of last season. The idea was that the missile guidance systems would fail with the power shut off again, and they couldn't hit their targets of Atlanta and Philly.
Although we didn't see this happen, it sounds like that was only partially successful. The nukes still landed relatively close to their targets, killed lots of folks, and dished out nuclear fallout in the areas.
The majority of the episode is 6 months after the day they restarted and restopped the power. There are some flashbacks to explain bits and pieces of what happened in those 6 months, but there is more story to tell.
Either the new day of the week, or the new timeslot, or the general disinterest in Season 1 resulted in a low TV rating for the Season 2 premiere. Last night's episode tried the record low TV rating for the series so far.
"What's going on with the white kid with the yellow skin on Revolution?"
Tonight's episode was pretty terrible. I understand the lights are supposed to be out, but did all the fight scenes have to be so dark you couldn't tell who was hitting whom? Pretend the moon is full, or write it so there's a torch nearby casting some light. As it was, the fights were fake foleyed fight sounds on a completely black background. Terrible.
I think the show just crossed over into the kind of territory that makes it too goofy for me.
Whatever special power Google guy now has since he died and the midichlorians (or whatever the micro machines are called) brought him back to life is too much.
I liked seeing Zeljko Ivanek in the last minute there.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
