DVD Reviews: Revolution: The Complete Second and Final Season – Machiavellian Mayhem & Nanotechnology!

While many (including me) were reveling in the bat$#! craziness of Sleepy Hollow and The Blacklist, at least as many (again including me) missed out on the degree over directed insanity on the second season of Revolution, which bled a lot of viewers between seasons.

It runs out that Revolution was best appreciated by binge-watching. On a weekly basis, the series seemed to be losing its mind, but viewed several episodes at a time, it's a heckuva lot of fun.

For a series about a world without power and technology, there certainly was a lot of power and technology in the first season – culminating in a nuclear option put into play for the season finale. Season two was filled with all kinds of stuff, but power and technology played a more minor – if no less crucial – role. It also took the road movie aspect of the show and ditched it, firmly, setting most of the action in and around the town of Willoughby, Texas – something that let its moments of silliness shift from lame to bat$3!+ crazy.

Before the second season is too far along, we've got the arrival of the (alleged) U.S. government in the form of uniformed soldiers who appear to be saving the town from a wandering gang of refugees from Mad Max (one of whom kidnaps people looking for blood 'donors' to keep his diabetic wife alive – and, by the way, he's also a pedophile). The soldiers are led by Ed Truman (Steven Culp, who does innocuous evil so well it's scary). They call themselves Patriots – which harkens back to the final moments of the season one finale.

There are Texas Rangers; Aaron (Zak Orth) gets a superpower, and the on-again/off-again bromance between Miles (Billy Burke) and Monroe (David Lyons) continues to run hot and cold (that might have something to do with Charlie bringing him along to Willoughby – or not…). Plus a sleek tall ship arrives bearing a genuine (again, alleged) representative of the government, Secretary Justine Allenford (Nicole Ari Parker), who will soon having an intriguing relationship with Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito).

Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) continues to be the smartest person in whatever room she's in – but definitely lacking in wisdom (her favorite tactic is announce she'll be more careful just before she emulates the proverbial bull in the china shop). Eventually, though she does learn, and by season's/series' end, she's actually behaving like there are a couple sane bones in her body.

Aaron's creepy new power costs him one girlfriend and takes over another (yet another character arc that has had the crazy stick taken to it), but where's there life, there's hope.

New character Dr. Gene Porter (Stephen Collins) is Rachel's dad/Charlie's (Tracy Spiridakos) grandfather – and not at all thrilled about the company they keep (Pot. Kettle. Black.). He adds one more arc that goes the complete reversal route. A couple of times. While Miles' best advice to Tracy is, 'try not to be too stupid).

In between bouts mayhem ranging from bare fists to explosions, there are betrayals, double agents, artificial intelligence and more politic movements (fore and backtracking, shifting alliances and one-upmanship) than almost any other series on television last season.

Throughout the season, the show's only real flaw was getting too caught up in the crazy from time to time and some arcs suffered from it (Neville's alliances, for example).

Seriously, watching Revolution makes one wonder – it's like something written by Machiavelli, Class Clown. All twisted and convoluted and unimaginably silly – but somehow entertaining even as it goes off the rails.

I didn't get that at first, which may be why I stopped watching season one after four episodes. Still, I had no trouble figuring out where season two was going after barely a handful of minutes – and I certainly had no problem staying with it for its last even more strung out episodes.

Season two of Revolution turned out to be jolly, silly, crazy fun. Not Shakespeare by any means, but not Manimal (or Flash Gordon), either.

Sadly, the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD Combo Pack contains barely a handful of extras.

Extras: Revolution: Heading West (half-hour featurette of the writers and Jon Favreau discussing why the second season was no longer a road movie); Impact Revolution: Conversations With The United Nations (featurette on how Revolution was used to show situations that are real for over a billion people in the real world); United Nation: The Mission Continues PSA; 2013 Comic-Con Panel Q&A with Cast and Creators; Deleted Scenes; Gag Reel

Grade: Revolution: Season Two – B

Grade: Extras – C

Final Grade: B-

Not really about Steven, but about "Revolution" ...

What TV Networks Should Learn from 'Revolution's' Cancellation


The revolution will no longer be televised.

Revolution, the blackout drama from NBC, was canceled this week after two seasons of seesaw ratings. While the concept and the initial execution were strong, it fell victim to a series of bad moves that damaged it irreparably. Executives from all networks can learn from NBC's mistakes.


Splitting Headache

Every network wants the next big "it" series. Such phenomena don't just pull great numbers for themselves, they allow a network to build a profitable slate around them. Revolution made a splash from the start due to its interesting premise, talented ensemble, and highly regarded production team ... but then the wheels came off.

The series from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke about a world where the power had gone out for good was given a preview during the 2012 Summer Olympics and handed the Monday night 10 p.m., following The Voice, providing it massive exposure. But when a show gets too much exposure too fast, network executives overthink. NBC's team decided to toy with the traditional viewing model.

Audiences hate the stop/start associated with the annual TV season. They don't like having their favorite shows air back-to-back in the fall and then skip full months in the spring. While other networks have taken steps toward fixing that problem, there is still no industry solution, but what NBC did with Revolution wasn't even close.

A few weeks into its run the network announced the show would go on break after just 10 episodes and return in the spring when the final 10 would run uninterrupted. That meant the show would be off the air from the end of November until the end of March.

Yes, other networks (mainly on cable) take this "split-season" approach, but rarely with rookie shows looking to build an audience, and even rarer without giving viewers fair warning. NBC got audiences hooked, but then inexplicably at the show's peak, pulled the show away, like Lucy pulling a football away from Charlie Brown.

To be fair, NBC had its reasons. Executives thought Revolution would suffer without The Voice as its lead-in and they wanted to wait for the reality smash to resume its run before airing the back half of the season. The network also thought reality veteran The Biggest Loser (which replaced Voice during that time) would be better paired with new series Deception.... It was not. Viewership fell sharply upon the show's return as audiences had moved onto other options.


Self-Starter?

Errors aside, Revolution still merited a second season with a fresh start. Remember, it was at one point the highest-rated show of the season. But analysts and investors knew it wouldn't keep its original timeslot because a high-buzz show called The Blacklist was testing off the charts. NBC shuttled Revolution to Wednesday ... in the lead-off slot.

Now NBC had a show people already were fleeing put in the unenviable position of kicking off a night against established hits like Survivor, Arrow, and The Middle. Even the now-canceled X Factor was topping it, which had to irk the network.

It didn't help the show got more convoluted in the second season. Audiences already had issues with the plot around the time it returned from its first hiatus, and now it was getting noticeably worse. It was no surprise to see the show continually get trounced in the ratings.


Network Impact

Revolution is a prime example of how not to handle a show, especially one that was working. Scheduling is everything in the TV business and to see the drama get bumped around only solidified the jabs critics had taken at NBC over its recent slates. It became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Ordering a series is one thing, but giving it the right timeslot is another altogether. Many "sure things" have been felled by getting a terrible timeslot. Advertisers and audiences often only give shows one shot to make a mark before they lose interest.

To be clear NBC executives are not dumb -- they had a run of bad luck amplified by preventable mistakes. The ebb and flow of the ratings game will eventually return to its favor, but errors like these will only delay that evolution.

If executives can think like viewers and act accordingly, rather than overthinking and ultimately outsmarting themselves, the networks, advertisers, investors, and fans will all be better off.

Not really about Steven, but about "Revolution" ...

NBC Cancels 'Revolution,' 'Believe,' 'Crisis' and 'Growing Up Fisher'

NBC continued to solidify its lineup for the 2014-15 broadcast season, axing drama Revolution after two seasons and canceling freshmen Believe and Growing Up Fisher.

Hardly the ratings heavyweight it was early in its first season, Revolution made up for its softer numbers with remarkable consistency and handsome DVR growth. The sophomore season of the J.J. Abrams-produced Warner Bros. Television drama has averaged a 1.4 rating in the key demo in live-plus-same-day viewing and improved to a 2.4 rating after seven days.

Time-shifting also has the series averaging 7.5 million viewers. Many chalked up the season-two drops as a result of losing its Voice lead-in, but Revolution ended its first year on a softer note despite the generous pairing with NBC's top show. The Blacklist, which scored NBC's first renewal for the 2014-15 season back in December, has proven to be a much stronger performer.

[...]

For Abrams, meanwhile, Revolution's cancellation comes a week after Fox canceled his Almost Human after one season. The prolific producer still has CBS' already renewed Person of Interest and NBC's bubble drama Believe in contention.

News from Steven Culp himself:
(Thank you, Steven!)

QUOTE I'm sorry to have not been providing information about "Revolution" this year [...]. It's like I said in the interview [...]: I don't know how much of what I know should be kept secret and even I don't know that much. Telling the fans that I would be in a forthcoming episode would be giving away the fact that Truman's still alive, for example. So I've just remained quite the whole time.

And for the rest of this year, every time I get a new script I would think, "well, here's the one where I get killed," and I would be as surprised as anyone when I survived in the end. Now, of course, I have a bit more knowledge - I know how the season will end at this point - but I still can't give anything away. So everyone will just have to watch and see. UNQUOTE

myFanbase.de, an online magazine about U.S. television shows, released an exclusive interview with Steven Culp on their website. Steven answered the following questions:


1. In season 2 of "Revolution" a new party was added: The Patriots. You are Edward Truman, a high commander of this group. What is your take on the character? And how would you describe this new group and their motives from what we know so far?

2. When you got the part on "Revolution" was there any actor you really looked forward to working with? Or still do, since you haven't worked with all of the cast yet?

3. "Revolution" draws a world (almost) without any kind of technology. Which is the one technology or technical device you wouldn't want to live without?

4. What one thing about "Revolution" would people not know?

5. Your "Grey's Anatomy" character Dr. Parker addressed two important issues: competitive doctors struggling to be teamplayers and aging surgeons in the OR. Do you think he was ultimately right in what he confronted Cristina with?

6. Looking back at "Desperate Housewives", what's your fondest memory from working on this show?

7. Rex van de Kamp had a fondness for S&M sex, a subject that's now widely popular through the bestseller "50 Shades of Grey". Do you think Rex might actually count as a bit of a pioneer in freeing this subject from taboos as it was addressed in his storyline on this hugely successful show 9 years back?

8. Which character you ever played, was the hardest work? And which one had the most influence on you?

9. Do you like traveling? Have you ever been to Germany? What did you see or what would you like to see?

10. Since myFanbase is an online magazine about U.S. television shows, what are your favorite shows?

'Revolution' Boss Drops 8 Clues to What's Next

Kripke shed some light on his overall Season 2 plan. "The thematic is that events of the finale shattered everybody and everything, proverbially and literally. We have these shards of people strewn across the continent. If they can find each other in the darkness, reunite, and overcome their issues, they have a chance at winning. Before the first nine are out, we know what the nanotech are doing, we know what the Patriots are doing in Willoughby, and we learn what they want with Rachel."

The president, alluded to in the finale, "remains a shadowy off-camera figure for now," but viewers will meet him before the season is over.

Revolution Post Mortem: Who are the Patriots? [Eric Kripke Interview]

At the end of Revolution's "Love Story," The U.S. Government took over Willoughby, Texas. The Patriots have raised their flag and saved the townspeople. But who are they? We don't know much yet except for the fact they'd been hiding out in Cuba for the better part of 15 years. There's no more hiding out now. They're making their move on American soil.

At a recent Q&A with creator Eric Kripke, he gave some insight to the newest villains on the Revolution canvas:

The Patriots wear a mask but they're not to be messed with

ERIC KRIPKE: There's elements of the public face — the public relations face is all God Bless America but the things that are happening behind closed doors are truly awful. So it let us have a certain amount of mystery because our bad guys aren't wearing their evil on their sleeves. They're hiding it, and there's more subterfuge.

So far their agenda includes looking like the heroes

ERIC: They're creating a problem so they can be the solution. Randall, who was their vanguard, launched the nukes. And then they came into sweep up the mess. And then they go to Willoughby and what do they do in Willoughby but make a mess. And then they arrive to clean it up. So they have an MO.

But make no mistake, these guys are villains

ERIC: The Patriots represent all of our negative impulses and all of our selfishness. And our heroes are all of our better angels. And it lets us really tell the story of the soul of America and it's a conflicted soul and we're hoping obviously the light side wins out.

In fact, consider the Patriots the big bad of season two

ERIC: I'm basically a fan of — I haven't seen [Marvel's Agents of] S.H.I.E.L.D. — but I'm a fan of the Joss Whedon school of show running. And that's how I learned which is you organize a season around a big bad. And then you unveil more and more about the big bad as the season goes on. And you live in the first half of the mystery of who are these people? And what do they want? And then you live in the second half of the season of 'Okay, now we gotta stop these sons of bitches.' So the season will be organized around a villain who is scary and the drive of trying to defeat somebody and understand who they are and what they want and ultimately how to stop them for me is satisfying.

Slowly but surely we'll find out why they waited 15 years to make their move

ERIC: We'll reveal more about what's happening in sort of that kind of twisted black box that is Cuba and reveal more as the season progresses. But the idea being that they've been waiting and planning and plotting this invasion for quite a long time. And that who was in Cuba wasn't necessarily — maybe it started as the remnants of our government but it quickly became something else. And there were other influences and powers and energies down there that kind of muddled and curdled it into something else. And then that's who comes out of Cuba and sort of starts very insidiously trying to take over the nation.

We'll continue to realize there's no trusting them

ERIC: You take like paranoia madness and a healthy dose of Blackwater and shake well. And that was some version of what happened in Cuba. But they're really intelligent. I think they'll give [Neville] a run for his money. And they're very manipulative. What's interesting to us about them — and you know not unlike certain elements of our own government — they're remarkably good at public relations. And they know how to put on a public face. And they know how to manipulate to get what they want. So making a villain who was one scarier because so much of it happens behind closed doors but also more manipulative was interesting to us.

We'll get to know some of the faces of the Patriots

ERIC: In the very next episode you'll sort of meet the guy who's the governor of Willoughby — a character, [Edward] Truman, played by Steven Culp. And then there's Allenford [Nicole Ari Parker] — who you get to learn more about who she is through Neville's story. The president remains kind of a shadowy off-camera figure for now, but we're breaking the episode right now where we introduce him.

And we will get some answers on who the Patriot's true agenda by the mid-season finale

ERIC: I'm not somebody who's a fan of the endless mystery. So before the first nine are out we know a lot more about what the nanotech are doing, we know what the Patriots are doing in Willoughby and we learn what they want with Rachel.

Revolution airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.

'Revolution' 2.04 Preview: Rachel Doesn't Trust the Government

Rachel may land in trouble when she's caught sneaking into the U.S. Government headquarters.

Something is suspicious about the U.S. Government, so Rachel thinks in the next episode of "Revolution". Upon getting introduced to Edward Truman (Steven Culp) who is part of the Government, she questions his authority.

Believing that they come with a hidden agenda, Rachel sneaks into the Government headquarters. But her curiosity and heightened awareness could be her undoing as she gets caught by Truman when scanning through his documents.

According to the official synopsis, wounds of Miles and Rachel begin to heal and they begin planning a resistance to what they believe might be the Patriot occupation. A picture from the upcoming outing hints that Miles and Rachel get closer in a romantic way.

Meanwhile, Monroe and Charlie's dynamic begin to evolve. Neville's manipulation of Patriot power brokers makes Machiavelli look like a cherub and Aaron's mind works overtime awake or asleep with mind-blowing effectiveness.

"Patriot Games" will air Wednesday, October 16 at 8/7c on NBC.

On the website revolutionnbc.net a poll was created.

POLL: Which New Face Will Impact Revolution Season 2? (click on the link to vote)

(c) http://revolutionnbc.net
NBC Revolution has been filming since early July, and most of the news we've heard is about who will be joining the cast. Whether it is in a recurring role, guest star, or a permanent place in our Revolution universe, there are no shortage of newbies to speculate over. Some of these new faces we may seen for more than an episode, and ultimately they will have the most lasting affect, but sometimes, all you need is one episode to make your mark.

(c) http://revolutionnbc.net
If you haven't seen any casting news yet, you are either avoiding it completely or maybe your wifi isn't great. While behind the scenes pictures and episode titles are a bit scarce, the amount of new faces we are bound to see this season is not. One of the first most notable names to join the Revolution Season 2 cast was Patrick Heusinger (Gossip Girl), slated to play a character named Adam. Jessica Collins' (Rubicon) character wasn't detailed, but if you watch the long trailer for Season 2 from Comic Con, it appears that maybe she is a love interest for Aaron Pittman.

Personally, I am the most excited for Jim Beaver's guest starring role in Revolution Episode 2×05 One Riot, One Ranger. Being a huge Supernatural fan, I am always thrilled to see Jim pop up in another show I like, even if it is for one episode. However, Beaver isn't the only dashing older man joining the cast. Stephen Collins, set to play Gene, Rachel's father, will also be around and shed some additional light onto Rachel's life pre-Mathesons. Knowing that Jim and Stephen will be mixing it up with Billy Burke, Elizabeth Mitchell and Zak Orth is exciting, we can't forget that the other two new cast mates who may be joining the 'other side'.

Nicole Ari Parker (Soul Food) and Steven Culp (Grey's Anatomy) will also appear, and my guess is they will be among the new Patriots. Parker's character, Secretary Justine Allenford, is shown during the Revolution promo shown at Comic Con. Steven Culp's role is a little more mysterious. Knowing only that he will be playing a distinguished man named Edward Truman, it hasn't be said which side he will be on. Could this Truman be the 'President' from the end of Revolution's first season?

(August 21, 2013)
On Aug 21, 2013, Actor Jim Beaver (@jumblejim) posted on his Twitter account and on his Facebook page the following news:

First day on the new job. Worked with good guys Steven Culp and Barry Tubb. Long, easy day.


He does not mention the name of the show but I guess it is "Revolution" since he mentioned Austin as the location where he is right now in an entry written last Monday and "Revolution" is being filmed there. So, Steven is in Austin right now!!!


On August 24, 2013 it was confirmed that Jim Beaver filmed a guest starring appearance on "Revolution"

By Jen Sansevere from revolutionnbc.net: "Jim had been tweeting about being in Austin, and filming with Steven Culp, but to have the confirmation that he would be on screen with the Revolution cast makes it even more exciting."

Revolution Season 2 Casting News – New Recurring Character Cast

NBC Revolution is widening its cast of characters. Steven Culp (Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives) is joining the cast for an arc on Revolution Season 2. Not too much information is available on the character he will play, or what his arc will entail. Also joining the cast for Revolution Season 2 are Stephen Collins, Patrick Heursinger and Jessica Collins.

Steven Culp (Grey's Anatomy) has landed an arc on the second season of NBC's post-apocalyptic drama Revolution. He will play clean-cut Edward Truman, a dignified authority figure. Culp is with Domain and Miriam Milgrom Management. (Deadline.com)

A 'dignified authority' figure could mean several things in the Revolution world. In Revolution Season 1, I would have initially defined Monroe and Neville as dignified authority figures. Until they both seemed to be crazy, that is. But in Revolution Season 2, we have a whole new landscape to look at, with all new villains as well. Could this character of Edward Truman be part of this new band of patriots? Maybe he was working with Randall, and this new President? Or, in this new Texas territory, maybe Edward Truman is the leader of the Texas Rangers, looking to keep law and order in his post-apocalyptic town?

Steven Culp, whose career spans several decades, is certainly no stranger to television. Most recently appearing on Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Parker, Culp has also appeared on ER, Desperate Housewives and The West Wing. Scroll down to check out Steven Culp in his role as Grey's Anatomy's Dr. Parker. It is unsure yet of where in the season Culp's new Revolution character will premiere and how he will interact with Miles, Charlie, Rachel, Aaron, Monroe, Neville and Jason, but I am looking forward to meeting him.

Revolution Season 2 premieres on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 8/7C on NBC.

NBC's 'Revolution' season 2 spoilers: 'Grey's Anatomy' guest takes on an arc

Steven Culp has amassed himself quite a connection of memorable guest-starring roles over the years. In addition to appearing on classics like "ER," "JAG," and "Desperate Housewives," he also had a four-episode stint last year on "Grey's Anatomy." So what is coming next for him? How about a role on NBC's exciting / polarizing sci-fi epic "Revolution."

Deadline reports that Culp is going to be recurring for several episodes on the show's second season taking on the part of Edward Truman, an authority figure that has some sort of air of significance surrounding him. While the last thing that this show may have necessarily needed was another strong male personality (especially with Miles already around), this is precisely what we are getting.

Culp's addition rounds out what is already a jam-packed list of guest stars, given that you already have such characters as Rachel's father and some prospective love interests stopping by. After a production in North Carolina that went off pretty swimmingly, the show is taking a back-to-business approach to what is going on right now in Austin, Texas. The premiere date of September 25 is still a reasonable amount of time away, which means that producers are going to be able to add some more to the cast along with tweak the series creatively as they see fit for a while longer.

All we hope, for now, is the Culp and the other new faces create a more interesting dynamic for the characters, where Charlie is not constantly complaining and where Giancarlo Esposito has more opportunities than ever to rock out with his bad self. Given that this weekend is the beginning of the end for "Breaking Bad," we're thinking about him more than usual.

As for "Revolution," we'll have some more news as it breaks every step of the way.
