Revolution- Children of Men

Come here to discuss hockey and Arrested Development because I didn't even try this week!


So I mean, I was going to watch this show, but then the Hawks/Red Wings game went pretty long, and like seriously, fuck Detroit, but hey, we won! (We as in Chicago!) Since hockey is the only sport I care about because I make a very strange American, it seemed way more important to me than watching Revolution. Plus I have to leave town on Wednesday for most of the week, and with the holiday backlog at work (and due to a broken water main in our building), I don't really have time tomorrow to pretend to watch this. So enjoy a review of the last ten minutes!

Rachel, Aaron, Charlie, and Monroe are together for some reason, which Charlie is upset over. Rachel, Aaron, and Charlie scurry away, but are stopped at gunpoint by some people who may or may not be relevant to life. Monroe is shooting at Miles, who is with Nora and like maybe someone else. Monroe calls him out and they stare each other down with their sonic rainboom guns.

Charlie, Rachel, and Aaron are walked down a weird bunker thing. In a tastefully futuristic lobby they find another group of refugee type people. They’re patted down and weapons taken- including Aaron’s notebook. Grace says they won’t kill Rachel if they don’t have to; she also says that Aaron is kind of a big deal.  They say they can’t let anyone get to level 12 and that they’ve sealed themselves in to prevent it. These are the people protecting the power from being restored.

There are some tents outside. Neville and Jason are tied up to them. Neville is apparently anti-Monroe now (not surprising) and some random soldier type with eyebrows bordering on the singular lets him go and hands him a gun. Father-son assassination bonding time!

Rachel argues for restoring power. Aaron also argues that power equals science and reason, because Aaron is the only Good Dude in this show. But the leader of these bunker people (whose name might be Danny, just to be confusing) burns the notebook telling them how to reactivate. Grace says there’s a chance that reactivating the lights will lead to setting the world on fire. Dramatic much?

Right so that’s the last ten minutes of Revolution. Season Finale next week! I’m so excited to never have to watch this show again!

Feel free to discuss season four of Arrested Development in this thread. I enjoyed it, but I’m hesitant to give a full verdict until I have another watch. The narrative was different from previous seasons; a combined result of the method of broadcast and the lapse of time since it was last on television. I felt it was slow at first, but by the end I suspect it may have been sort of genius, albeit with some flaws. Ultimately I think it delivered though. Feelings? Thoughts?

I’ll see you guys next week for Game of Thrones! There will be a wedding! And also for the finale of this stupid show. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go freak out for a moment about the fact that I’ll be on a plane during Wednesdays game.

About the Author - DrImprobable

Before you ask, no, Dr. Improbable is not that kind of doctor, and will not be diagnosing your genital warts today. Seriously, put it away. The doc does more of the "mad science" brand of doctoring, though one day hopes to be that "time and space traveling" kind of doctor. In the meantime, Doc passes time cloning things, memorizing acronyms, and using large magnets. When not plotting all the terrible ways to destroy the human race (particularly those found on public transportation), the doc kills time by watching television and making sarcastic commentary on it.
