Upside, the lead actress was cast from Vancouver, I'm happy for her.

IMDB Tracy Spiridakos - IMDb
EXACTLY what I was going to say. Compare this "15 years after the apocolypse" to Walking Dead's <1 year after the apocolypse. It's just so stupid. Even the fucking SLAVES are all groomed and pretty.

Good for her but too bad her character is a fucking annoying moron. "Oh don't kill him in cold blood" even though the fucking guy tried to CHOP YOUR UNCLE'S HEAD OFF and will TRY AGAIN AS SOON AS HE CAN.

Just stupid. This show sucks.

This show is really reminding me of Terra Nova, interesting concept but executed horribly with horrid acting just like Terra Nova.

the network its on probably has to do with its clean/colourful look

because we've seen Kripke do a post-apocalyptic world in Supernatural (one of the episodes was a What If? deal) and it looked good

Could be a really good show, but HBO has ruined me for almost all other TV. Network shows seem so clean and polished (too goody goody) compared to what i've gotten used to watching (Entourage, Thrones, Walking dead, etc...) I like to see characters speaking like real people, with cussing and and stuff mixed into their speech, more realistic.

The trailer reminded me of flashforward in a big way, and here's the thing with a show like this: you have one shot to hook people.

Lost pulled it off...I don't know how, but it did. Flashforward should have but didn't. Terra Nova and the rest obviously fail.

With even this trailer, it looks cheezy as hell. I don't really care about effects and such, if you have good acting that can make it worthwhile.

Ugh...I told myself that I'd do my best to "mentally get into a tv show" with an open mind but the acting in this show is gonna kill me. 4 episodes later I'm beginning to dread watching another episode cuz the actors all suck ass. That Charlie chic with that stupid smirk...ugh...

I'm actually really enjoying this show. It's moving a lot quicker and it has a way better plot then flashforward.

Charlie is such a fucking moron. She always does the WRONG goddamn thing.

Stupid shit she did just in the last episode:

1. Follow Gus Fring after their encounter. Against instructions, against common sense. Her excuse that he ran into her was a poor one.

2. Letting the Jason kid out of his jail cell in order to ask him to help -- It was chain link. They could have asked him through the fence instead of letting him out first.

3. Running at Gus Fring with a knife when they were on the train. Yes... why don't you attack this highly trained individual. You have a goddamn crossbow. Did I miss a scene where she lost it or something? Where did it go?

I think some of you are way too hard on this show. Yes i agree with some points but its very watchable. And your all saying they should be dirty and not clean..Just cause the power went out doesn't mean they don't have ways to clean themselves.. lol

It would be a nice twist, if they kill Charlie off and Danny becomes the main character.

Not impressed so far but it hasn't been bad enough for me to take it off my watch list. I'm still following it but it's not one of those omg I can't wait to watch Revolution this week type of thing unlike Homeland, Walking Dead and other shows on my list.

So did this show get any better? I watched the first 2 or 3 episodes and it wasn't going anywhere.

I stopped watching season 1 after a few episodes, but it seems like season 2 got a bit darker and bloodier, will keep up with s2 and see how it goes.
