Yes. I am the 1%. I envy anyone who can defy gravity and physics like that because I am an out of shape dude on the back end of things and getting out of bed is more challenging than it should be. I will admit that most times they show someone performing it, they usually look like a douche and deserving of a slap.
I've watched Revolution so far. Pretty good but it needs to get going a bit faster.
I'm not going to bother with Arrow...not really interested.
Of course, none of these sci-fi like shows even remotely come close to BSG...so my expectations are rather low.
Well, network vs cable is apples to oranges. Network stuff is simplified/watered down so the results are always gonna be less. I almost think Revolution is giving away too much too soon, but otherwise you face the LOST argument that folks don't want to wait around as long for reveals. For what it is(a network show) it's just good enough.
Arrow is pretty much the same. They are doing what they can within the confines of a network tv show.
Both of these shows, when judged against other NETWORK shows, are pretty good examples of what you can acheive in that system. I watch, enjoy and want both to continue.
But if you asked me to give up one of my least favorite dvr'd cable shows I would say no. There just isn't a comparison and it's unfair to expect otherwise.
Revolution is starting to fade on me. Still having fun with Arrow though, I guess it helps that I have no clue of the actual green arrow back story from other sources. So I have no clue who all these characters are that you guys talk about
