Aargh! It’s nonsense!
Magical thinking of the worst kind cloaked in the opacity of technology!
This is what happens when writers start out as fans instead of, well, writers. There’s a peculiar (and I mean really peculiar) mindset that the born writer has. Alienated. Analytical. Bombastic. It’s clear from this episode (no, I haven’t watched any others), that the writers of REVOLUTION don’t have that. They’re readers trying to write instead.
In the words of old friend Harlan Ellison: “Just because you like to read doesn’t mean you should try to write.”
Or, to update that just slightly: Just because you love watching TV doesn’t mean you should try to write it.
We’re done here.
