I'm not into "hate-watching," but Revolution is coming close to that level of badness. Not much happened until the final quarter-hour. I even made a challenge to present some of my feelings for the season 2 premiere in 110 characters or less:

    NBC #Revolution exhibits actors' ennui at 8PM. After 1st #PowerHalfHour, I was BORED in the USA!

What I saw is less about restoring power, but restoring hope. Though I can't fathom how new viewers at the new Wednesday 8PM time slot are going to be hooked. The 1.8 18-49 overnight rating is lower than the season finale rating of 2.0. I just don't see Revolution lasting beyond this season.

My further thoughts of the season 2 premiere.

What I learned from watching this show is that the Michael J. Fox show premieres tonight at 9/8C. (I also learned that during all two hours of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" - also, I learned that NBC hates me and I hate NBC. If they put a countdown to the Michael J. Fox show over my "Parks & Recreation" premiere, I may just give up on NBC completely and wait for DVDs...because that's clearly the message they are trying to send me.)

Yeah, here are my tweets about Revolution. None of them are positive.

I'd be happy if #Revolution stops being terrible or becomes even more terrible, but what I won't stand for is the same level of terrible.

6 months ago: nukes launched. 6 months ago: Arrive in Texas 1000 miles from Colorado. Another trip through the #Revolution wormhole.

Charlie sexcapading through the remains of the Bad Cover Band States of America. #Revolution

#UndertheDome and #Revolution agree: In a state of apocalypse and civilization's collapse, there will always be Fight Clubs. #IAmJacksCliche

@BackoftheHead 9h

#UndertheDome has the pink stars. #Revolution showed green fairies. Both shows are eating from the same box of Lucky Charms.

@BackoftheHead 8h

Whelp, if it's broke, don't fix it. #Revolution

@BackoftheHead 8h

#Revolution is like a drunk wearing a lampshade on his head say he'll walk off the roof and he does it. And you're like, "Eh. Whatever."

What an annoying show. They had all summer to fix what was wrong and all they did was reshuffle a couple of cards and then continue on business as usual as if their show was super good or something. After their ratings, it's highly unlikely they won't be canceled soon.

All I really have to say is the two main women on the show, Emily Mortimer and Allison Pill, are really loud, incompetent, and in raving, emotional hysterics this entire episode, while their men regard them with patient stoicness. World of Sorkin.
