It’s not just because he did a pretty great job with the Stark Trak reboot, we just like J.J. Abrams’ work. In fact, we’re interested when he pretty much does anything.
Add that to our love of anything post-apocalyptic and that brings us to the upcoming show Revolution. Sure, it does have a couple things against it, not the least of which is the fact that Bella’s dad from Twilight in one of the leads (although he does a pretty good job) or that the show seems like a bit of a rip off of The Hunger Games (it mostly isn’t).
Still, we’ve watched a couple episodes already and it’s actually pretty good. You might like it too. Plus, it’s got Giancarlo Esposito in it and was directed by that guy who did Iron Man (you know him as Jon Favreau), so that goes a long way for us.
We’ve got previews for the show, which premieres tonight on NBC. Take a look at them after the break. Let us know what you think of the show.
