Set just before the start of the Armageddon, the series follows two central characters, a physicist and a nun in a race against time to see if the end of the world can be averted. Bill Pullman plays the role of Dr. Richard Massey, a Harvard physics professor and father mourning the death of his daughter, who was murdered by an evil satanist with seemingly supernatural abilities. Natascha McElhone stars as a nun who appeals to Massey to help her investigate whether the apocalyptic prophecy from the Book of Revelations is starting to come true.Written by

Protagonists rely on full moon setting at midnight on the Sea of Galilee to determine location of birth of the anti-Christ. Full moons are always at zenith - directly overhead - at midnight local time. Only half-moons (waxing half moons at that) set at midnight local time. See more »
Viewers might just want to see this show to be entertained!
Revelations could just be the show that viewers will watch to escape from their everyday lives. I don't believe that we should over intellectualize movies, mini-series, or television programming. I like both main actors and I believe like most suspenseful/thriller shows that it will hook its audience but will need a strong conclusion. I am generally hooked by the strong opening but also easily disappointed by lame endings. Revelations needs to prove that it can answer the questions it asks in a creative manner. There has been plenty of movies about the end of the world and of mankind as we know it, but nothing new ever seems to be brought forth. I love shows like Revelations and I seek them out, I love that "genre". I love to be terrified and the idea of the end of our civilization mixed-in with religion is thoroughly entertaining and fascinating. I will be watching and I hope not to be disappointed!
