Billy Burke discusses "Revolution"

NBC's new drama "Revolution" sounds like it could be very confusing to understand -- especially since it comes from the mind of all-around TV genius J.J. Abrams -- but star Billy Burke tells Zap2it that it's actually easy to follow.

"I don't think people will be confused in the slightest watching it," he says. "For some reason, all forms of energy and power go out. Fifteen years later, people are trying to get along and trying to figure out how to reconnect and how to form new societies without any of those benefits. We cut back and forth a little bit in time, but it's all pretty linear and very easy to follow and highly entertaining."

Burke, who says "'Revolution' is my favorite thing I've done in a very very long time," explains that his character is a former member of the military "forced into coming back to fight for the cause."

And yes, he's definitely a J.J. Abrams fan and totally loved the early days of "Lost." "The first season, I was bending over backwards," he says, but admits he doesn't have an opinion on the divisive finale. "I didn't see it -- I don't know! Sorry J.J., I didn't see it!"

Jon Favreau discusses "Revolution"

"Jon Favreau has shared new details about NBC series Revolution.

Iron Man director Favreau has helmed the pilot for the sci-fi drama devised by JJ Abrams (Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural).

"It definitely shares some DNA with Lost and [JJ's other] shows," Favreau told The Hollywood Reporter.

"But I think when Eric came up with the idea for this, I think he was looking at things like Game of Thrones [and] Lord of the Rings - how to set a fantasy with swords and lo-tech societies butting [heads] and set it on an American backdrop."

Set in the near future, Revolution takes place in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.

"Even though America's overgrown, [the series] has a personality that you don't see in... European-based shows," insisted Favreau. "


Just a taster of things to come!

JON FAVREAU ON CREATING A ‘REVOLUTION’
In Revolution, electricity ceases to exist after disappearing from the world 15 years ago. The show, from the mind of JJ Abrams and the pen of Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, then tells the story of what happened next, according to director Jon Favreau, who helmed the pilot, it’s not all bad. But it is interesting.
“From my perspective, it’s about the characters and the families — how they’ve had to adjust. What’s scary about [the world] and what’s positive about it,” he says. “The world in some ways has gotten more innocent. It’s a simpler time, and one could argue that people are closer together.”


But it’s all peace and iProduct-free love. ” There are dark characters and there’s a lot of danger in that world because you don’t have governments and you have armys. You have militias popping up and you have clans fighting,” he says. And that embattled, “Game of Thrones-style” theme, set on a modern backdrop is what attracted him to the project. Well, that and the sword-play. “I’m a big fan of swords in film, so it was a chance to work with sword choreography,” he says with a smile. “Without modern technology, modern weaponry starts to disappear after 15 years. Modern gun powder. A couple of people have been able to hoard more modern weapons, but without electricity, it’s hard to manufacture that high-grade, high-tech product. So we’re getting back to hand-made things. So a lot of swords, black powder weapons, Kentucky rifles, and a couple of very powerful people have been able to accumulate weapons from our times.”

Downloaded 'Dies the Fire' this morning since this is supposed to be loosely based on that - not crazy about the writing style so far but it looks promising as a television show.

HUGE NEWS!!!

Quote:
Huge casting news: Lost fan favorite Elizabeth Mitchell is reuniting with executive producer J.J. Abrams on his new NBC show Revolution.

Image



Mitchell will play the compassionate and concerned long-absent mother of the show’s two young leads, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny (Graham Rogers), who set off on a dangerous cross-country journey.
The hire returns to series TV a veteran actress proclaimed a geek goddess following her breakout roles as Juilet on ABC’s Lost and playing a resistance fighter on the alien invasion drama V. Revolution is set in a post-apocalyptic future when all electrical devices have stopped functioning and the United States is controlled by rival militias. The series premiere is Monday, Sept. 17.

Ton of neat actors in this too, like that guy from "The Cape" I think?

They should just have Giancarlo Esposito running around killing people and generally being a badass for an hour each week. I'd watch.

Well, I FINALLY watched the pilot after several attempts.

I like it!! I can see myself really getting into it. I just hope it doesn't get cancelled or something crazy like that. :o


I thought the fight scene in the bar at the end was pretty cool. It reminded me of Denzel Washington in The Book Of Eli.

Can't wait to see the next episode!!

I really like this show btw. :) The only complaint I had before was that it appeared as if Elizabeth Mitchell was being confined to a flashback only role. :o

Luckily... :)

This show is pretty mediocre tbh :p. The acting and writing are pretty meh, but the story dose have some potential, so I'll keep watching for now.

I loved everything about this show except for the teenage girl. I honestly cannot stand her constantly whining, and almost stalking Miles.

Looks like they listened to your suggestion! :D
This week's ep, together with the 3rd ep, have been my favorites so far. Both Mark Pellegrino and Jeff Fahey should be upgraded to regulars tbh. I hope they make another appearance soon.

So what did y'all think of the fall finale? I thought it was great. Action packed, good flashbacks, some funny bits, and it's good to finally have them wrapping up the search-for-Danny arc.

The second half of the season looks great too:
