In episode 237 of The Revolution Podcast we share some of the listener feedback we received for season 2 episode 19 of NBC’s Revolution entitled, “$#!& Happens.” Most of the listeners felt like the episode delivered excellent writing and incredible acting, but fell a little short on the action. Some listeners wanted more action, while others were fine with the lack of action since it was made up for by character development.
We hear some varying opinions on Rachel and Bass, thoughts on what will happen with Charlie and Miles now that they each seem to have a new perspective, the behavior of the nanites, and the revelation of what was in the shack that Miles burned in the season 2 premiere. Read More…
In episode 236 of The Revolution Podcast we review season 2 episode 19 of NBC’s Revolution entitled, “$#!& Happens.” During out discussion of the episode we share our thoughts on the revelation of what was in the shack that Miles burned down in the season 2 premiere episode and if was a good pay off. We also talk about the development of the nanites and how they are treating Aaron.
Most of this episode had Miles by himself trapped in a basement and we discuss how this experience might have changed him and discuss some of the thing we liked and didn’t like about how he handled that situation. Of course, we also talk about the interaction between Bass and Rachel, and the powerful scenes that Charlie and Tom shared. Read More…
Revolution season 2 episode 19 entitled, “$#!& Happens” aired on April 30, 2014 and here are my initial thoughts on “$#!& Happens.”
I loved the scenes with Charlie and Tom. Tracy Spiridakos and Giancarlo Esposito both did a fantastic job and I was surprised at moving it was.
We finally got the mystery solved of what was in the box, the shack, that Miles burned at the beginning of the season. It was a better reveal that I imagined and I wonder if Aaron and Miles will ever know that each holds a piece to that puzzle.
It seems to me that Charlie and Miles both will have a new perspective now. Armed with this new perspective, they will finally have what is needed to defeat the Patriots and the nanites.
My question this week is, “What was your favorite moment of this episode?”
In episode 235 of The Revolution Podcast we share the fan feedback we received for season 2, episode 18 of Revolution entitled, “Austin City Limits.” We hear a lot of great thoughts and insights about the death of Jason and how it was a death that was earned by the great character arc that the writers gave Jason Neville. We also hear some theories on what will happen now that Jason is dead.
Most listeners are more intrigued by the nanites than ever before as each episode paints the nanites as being more formidable than previously thought. We also hear thoughts about Texas and if they will join the fight against the Patriots, whether or not California will enter the picture, and which character is the least likely to be redeemed. We also hear some great feedback about how bleak the world of Revolution has become, whether or not Aaron will step up to be the moral guide or if he’ll be more of a cowardly lion. Read More…

Revolution season 2 episode 18 entitled, “Austin City Limits” aired on April 2, 2014 and here are my initial thoughts on “Austin City Limits.”
This episode had a lot of hype due to the promotions that NBC ran about it after the previous episode aired and during the days leading up to this episode. It would have been easy to be disappointed if this episode didn’t live up to the hype, but that was not the case. “Austin City Limits” was great!
I am even more intrigued about Priscilla and what the nanites are doing with her. I’m sure Aaron will find a way to free her from the nanites but I have no idea how he’ll do it.
Jason’s death was very well done. Both actors involved with the scene did great, the music and editing were very moving, and it really did bring the episode to a very impactful ending. Read More…
In episode 233 of The Revolution Podcast we share the listener feedback we received for the 17th episode of Revolution season 2 entitled, “Why We Fight.” The episode was generally considered one of the darkest of the series so far and most Revolution fans liked it. We received an interesting theory from Jenn about the Patriots and the possible role that the nanites have in their actions. Read More…
In episode 232 of The Revolution Podcast we review 17th episode of Revolution season 2 entitled, “Why We Fight.” We talk about all of the character development in this episode, the changing moral stance of Rachel, Gene’s philosophical approach to Miles, Monroe’s dark path, Charlie’s lack of hope, and the possibility that Connor will choose a different path than his dad.
We also talk about the developments with Tom, Jason, Doyle, and Truman. We speculate on what Tom will do with Jason, what Truman’s next move might be, and the death of Doyle. We also discuss the townspeople of Willoughby and how they will react now that their children have been killed. Will they see that Patriots are really to blame or will they hold team Miles responsible? Read More…
Revolution season 2 episode 17 entitled, “Why We Fight” aired on March 19, 2014 and here are my initial thoughts on “Why We Fight.” The theme of the characters discussing and deciding why they fight began in “Exposition Boulevard” and carried over in a major way in “Why We Fight.”
I liked that Rachel apologized to Charlie. She does not like the woman that Charlie has become and she realizes that she must take a lot of the responsibility for it. She abandoned Charlie and wasn’t around to help Ben with parenting responsibilities and since she’s been back in Charlie’s life she demonstrated a lot of bad behavior herself and been a bad influence on Charlie. Rachel’s apology doesn’t change any of that and won’t make Charlie better over night, but it is a step in the right direction. Read More…
In episode 231 of The Revolution Podcast we share the listener feedback and theories we received for “Exposition Boulevard.” We hear some very interesting and thought provoking theories about Aaron and Priscilla and the symbolism of them eating apples. We also hear some good insight about President Davis’ son and how he might be a clue about the nanites intentions. Once again, stunt coordinator, Jeff Wolfe, received high praise for his work in this episode, specifically with the battle between team Neville/Truman and team Miles/Monroe. Read More…
