With the exception of 'Community', it's been a long time since NBC was anything less than completely terrible, so they had to be happy to see that the heavily promoted ‘Revolution' premiered with solid ratings last night, drawing 11.7 million viewers, though that number dropped to 10.4 million after 30 minutes.
I didn't even make it that long. I tapped out at around 13 minutes. That's when this guy was running forward at full speed and either someone tied him to the fence as a prank and he ran out of rope or God picked up a tree like a baseball bat and smashed him in the face. All I know for sure is that he wasn't shot with a tiny wooden arrow.
So no, fuck you 'Revolution'. If you're already doing stuff this stupid, fuck you. Fuck you to everyone who planned that, to all the producers and writers and executives and crew who knew that was gonna happen and thought, "yeah, this will be badass." Because, no, it's not badass, it's fucking retarded. It makes no sense whatsoever, even if you don't know that crossbows have half the power of vertical bows and that the force of a bullet is the same as the recoil (meaning the guy shooting the bow should have flown backwards about a mile). If you wan't me to believe that all the power went out in the entire world for some mysterious reason, fine, I'm on board, but we've all see arrows in movies before, and we know what they can and can't do, and I don't have time for your idiotic bullshit.
Well, I mean I do, obviously, but you get the idea.
