Hell yeah! I've been patiently waiting for this for a while. It got harder to wait when they teased us with a summer 2010 release date.

Damon and Emily Blunt have mad chemistry together (and Blunt is just sexy awesome) but they're no Desmond and Penny.

In his review (with SPOILERS) (, John Orq (happy belated birthday) questioned why the Chairman, if he was omniscient, didn't see Norris' defiance coming.

My answer to that (with SPOILERS) is this: neither the Chairman nor the Bureau is omniscient. The Chairman writes and re-writes the Plan as he sees fit. The Bureau's job is to make sure everything goes according to Plan, course correcting as necessary. Sometimes, the Bureau and the Chairman sit on the sidelines, letting us do whatever the hell we want. This is unlike Lost, where all if history is already written...where whatever happened, happened and whatever will happen, will happen.

The guys in the Bureau can't read minds. They're just really, really good at reading really, really large decision trees. The Chairman and the Bureau are treating us (humans) as quite sophisticated machines...AI. Maybe they are machines? When Norris goes into the restaurant to ask where Cedar Lake is, he's doing something that is shockingly not accounted for on his decision tree. He proved he was human.

I loved the use of rain and water as a prohibitive agent....Norris running through the rain puddles, creating ripples.

I skipped recapping Revolution last week because, let's face it, no one really cared. The main dealie from last week is Nora's bounty hunter sister stole the Pendant of Power from Aaron Google Man and brought it to the Militia who brought it to Monroe.
