    I finally watched the latest Revolution, and it's really losing me. I'm having a hard time caring about these characters and what they're doing.

    It seems like they're going with a weekly theme where they just want to help any random stranger they encounter. I don't mind it too much... you don't really want them to rush to Philadelphia. It would be cool though that the people they helped started to join their group. But the only new recruit they got so far is Nora.

    If anything though, this show feels just like Lost when it comes to the character flashbacks. I'm loving the character development.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Haven't seen the episode the other night yet but I still am really enjoying this show. Don't forget, another drawback of the network vs cable argument is what(?) 16 episodes to 12? That's a lot of time to fill. I think part of it is that, from the beginning, folks have been waiting to hate Revolution. I almost think some of you are watching it with less than an open mind.

    You're absolutely right. Plus with networks, while they want the shows to be huge in the ratings, they also pretty much plan for the shows to stretch out for as many seasons as they can... that's why they don't rush anything. Like you mentioned before, I couldn't help but feel that they're already going too fast because of how impatient people can get.

    Way to go Chicago Fire! Thanks to The Voice though for the lead-in.

    Interesting. So as a tangent to this thread, is it maybe time for the networks to adjust what they're doing? With so many cable channels filming their own shows and capturing so much acclaim and viewership, perhaps network shows need to adapt and become a little more fast-paced in their storytelling. DVRs aren't helping either. People have many more shows accessible to them now, so they're probably more willing to drop a show and pick up something else if that show doesn't grab them right away. That's not to say a slow steady burn of a tv show isn't great or can't be popular (because that is clearly not the case if the show is done well), but it does seem that the public is much less patient with that sort of story.

    Yeah...that's it in a nutshell. Add in the MAJOR factor that the boundaries on cable are far more loose than network(can't alienate middle america) and it's almost impossible for networks to compete.
