Revolution and Downton Abbey

Revolution- Soul Train
After Charlie first met Neville (cool first meeting, by the way) and they walked off, the music sounded just like the music on LOST. Also, they had Frank Lapidus play Hutch. We see what they're trying to do here, haha. Kim Raver (Grey's Anatomy, 24, Lipstick Jungle) was another familiar face. This week, they got damn close to getting Danny and missed. It was so entertaining that we aren't frustrated though. We also liked the seeing the flashbacks to Tom Neville's old life. We knew that was his son. It's a little ridiculous how they keep letting Danny have an advantage/always escape. Every week, he ends up right back where he started. Now he's at the main camp, so things should change and move forward.
Episode grade: B

Downton Abbey- Season 3, Episode 5
W.T.F? Sybil is one of our favorite characters, and we can't believe she's gone. She was the sweetest, prettiest character. It was soooo sad. They should have listened to Cora and the doctor with the doubts. They stayed with the family crying and in shock for an uncomfortably long time. We could not even deal with all the emotions. This was a hard episode to watch. Thomas getting overly familiar with the new guy. Ha! Others saw that coming where we didn't, but we liked it. Thomas crying over Sybil was good. It gives the character a well-needed sympathetic layer. We teared up when Mary and Edith decided to love each other for the day.

Daisy needs to stop being mean to that new kitchen maid. We love Isobel so much. She's unashamed of trying to help people, trying to be king, and trying to treat people well. Sometimes she says things that are a little self-righteous and plays savior where she shouldn't, but we can't fault her for it too much. Everyone else is being judgmental. We guess it was the times though. We're going to be depressed all day over this. To make things worse, all the characters might be wearing black for a while. They took Sybil AND the fashion. Ugh.
Episode grade: A-


  1. I really liked this episode of Revolution and would have given it a B+ or maybe an A-. Finally some plot progression. I did not see it coming that Jason aka Nate was Neville's son. That was mind boggling. Looking forward to next week because it finally feels like something is going to happen.

    Okay, this episode of Downton Abbey made me so ANGRY! I can't believe they killed off Sybil. She was my favorite character - the one I identified with the most. I ugly cried during this episode... seriously. I was a disgusting red blotchy puddle on the floor. But Maggie Smith should win an Emmy for the scene with Carson, where she teetered across the hall on her cane. So much emotion in that one moment. I just wish she could have pulled out the elder wand and brought Sybil back to life.

  2. Well, now I want someone to write a Harry Potter/Downton crossover where Violet is secretly McGonagal and they all go to Hogwarts. Revolution is probably our favorite new show...not that there were many contenders. What a disappointing batch this year.

    1. Give Go On another try. :) I think you'll like it more..and I think it has been improving since the pilot (it's also gotten a little more sitcomy than the pilot...) Best comedy of the season.

      Ben & Kate delivered a grade A episode this week. I liked it a lot. (maybe it was just me)

      Last Resort is still good. Nashville is probably the 2nd best drama of the broadcast season...and Vegas has sort of been getting better. Arrow is pretty good. I'm getting a bit bored of Revolution, though...but I have a feeling (or at least hoping) it'll get better by the end. Last Resort is my favorite, though. It's entertaining, more smartly done than any of the broadcast shows this season and has award winning performances. Sadly, it's in the danger of cancellation. Though, I think ABC out of the 4 big networks is a little friendlier with renewing something could happen.

      I'd also recommend watching Copper. That show has gotten really good since the pilot...and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle is surprisingly good...though, I didn't watch much of the old cartoon.

      I guess I'm sort of satisfied with this season of broadcast TV...usually for me there are a lot more bleh shows...this year has a lot of shows that have imo a pretty good start and could get much better over time...This season is more like 2009 of broadcast TV. (Community, Parks & Recreation, Cougar Town, The Good Wife, The Vampire Diaries and I guess Modern Family)

      I think Hunted premiers tomorrow on Cinemax.

    2. Usually when we give up on a show, we wait until the season is over and watch it in the summer to give it another chance, partly because it's not worth the effort if it ends up getting cancelled. Glad to hear Go On is getting better. We don't hate Ben and Kate. It has some good jokes. Last Resort is definitely a winner. It's probably the best new show, but we like Revolution better just because we like sci fi a lot. It's in our favorite genre, so we tend to gravitate toward it, even though it's unrealistic and there are better new shows.

    3. I have a problem with sticking with shows even though it's doing bad in the ratings or in case it gets better. Honestly, I hate catching up on shows. I just hate it..haha...It just adds too much to my collection of shows I want to catch up on...Hate it when shows that were once awful in their beggining become something better over time. Now I hear good stuff about Teen Wolf and Grimm and have added those shows as shows to catch up on....Damn it. Shows need to stop having horrible beginnings. haha Once I watch a show and see that it might improve, I stick to it. Sometimes I waste my time but sometimes it's worth it. lol

    4. Even though I know I'm always going to miss out on something...I also hate missing out on something. It sucks :P

    5. We are so the opposite. We LOVE catching up on shows. Watching it live is hard. We know it's a good show if we can tolerate it one week at a time. We can get into almost anything in a dvd marathon. We'll never get to Grimm, but one of us watches Teen Wolf.

  3. That fanfic would be the stuff of legends. You should write it.

    1. Ha! If I weren't too lazy to write something, I'd try to write a real book. But I could pitch the fanfic idea to someone else...
