Storyline

Miles, Charlie, Aaron and Maggie head to Pontiac, Illinois. Miles is hoping to find an old friend, Nora, whose expertise, he says, is absolutely required if they're to rescue Danny. He learns the hard way that General Monroe has put a hefty bounty on his head when a bounty hunter tries to capture him. Miles is prepared to execute him but Charlie convinces him not to, something they will later regret. When they do find Nora, she's working as a slave laborer but she has her own plans. On the way back to their encampment, Captain Neville shows what happens to people who break the law. Meanwhile, Monroe calls on one of his prisoners. Written by garykmcd

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse ...
25 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I'm guessing someone realized how bad the pilot was and thought: "how can we improve it?" most likely the answer was: "make an episode so much worse that it makes the pilot look like a masterpiece".

In that respect, this was a success, as it contains and incredible amount of self-righteous clichés per minute (literally, try to find something that's not an overused cliché here).

Every second of it is a painful predictable cliché, from the stupid teenager who runs off to do her thing to the military guy who falls for some spoiled brat tears (seriously, hardened military who takes the help of a hotheaded teen for no reason at all, that's good strategy??).

Stupid moment that keeps on giving: - hotheaded teen decides to set a trap for her stalker then just before going cries: "you're militia??". WTF girl, haven't you established that in the first episode given his tattoo and the fact he tried to capture your uncle alone in a bar full of civilians proving himself even more stupid and useless than you or any "red-shirt" henchmen?

Also, repeating three times "where are you going?" when your uncle told you he's got someone to see might the borderline between annoying teen and medically retarded.

The Wozniak-lookalike guy's logic: woman cries about her children's photos inside her mobile phone - so here, please take humanity's last hope for electricity to play with.

Rebel camp's logic: instead of creating a new secret sign that would function efficiently as a recognition tag, let's use the one symbol that gets people killed on sight for trying to hold on to "democracy" (which I'm quite sure will become the next obsession cliché).

Munroe republic logic: let's just follow the line of every egomaniac dictator ever depicted in movies and raise a personality cult that goes all the way to calling the republic by his own name instead of doing it the efficient way and simply use the existing denomination (the United States of which everyone is already attached to) as a vehicle for his ambitions. Munroe's ways, aside from being idiotic, is also so much more transparent that any democratic politician who ever boasted about transparency in public policies.

Revolution should try to learn from any of the more recent post-apocalyptic scenarios (like Falling Skies for example) an bring some complexity into the game.

Subverting democracy and its mechanisms for the purpose of fooling people into submission is much more believable than creating a totalitarian figure that puts "revolution" on the same page as "conan the barbarian" series.
