YouSirAreAMaroon: You give the show too much credit. Not only is it a global blackout, electricity has stopped being a thing altogether. No generators, cars, etc.


This definitely sounds like an NBC idea for a show.

Mmmrky: That Ragu commercial is still killing me. I'm trying to imagine that pitch meeting.


Ok, so picture this: a kid walks in on his parents in the sex swing. Stay with me now...Mom makes him spaghetti using Ragu to make it up to him.

IT'S GOLD, JERRY! GOLD!

there their theyre: ultraholland: there's a turtle laying on its back on the track

I don't get it


It's a Blade Runner reference. The turtle story is told to possible replicants to gauge their emotional reaction.

It's the song played over pouring and stirring Ragu that really hit home for me. Moving stuff.

So people will go to McDonald's and order four things off the "under 400" menu, and walk out having consumed about 1500 calories for a single meal...and feel good about eating healthy.

YouSirAreAMaroon: Joe_diGriz: I'm still trying to figure out how the heck a "global blackout" would work... ESPECIALLY one that lasts for 15+ years. Every single power grid would have to be connected to every other one, so a major fault would have a chance of causing a chain reaction (but this was already shown to be possible to stop by having differently configured cutoffs, as seen in the NorthEast blackout of 2003). In addition, whatever happened would have to take out every single power plant, everywhere - coal, gas nuclear, hydro, solar, and wind. And that doesn't even cover the other logical problems with this premise.

This isn't poor science for a TV show concept, it's not even pure fantasy - it's like the plot of a "story" by some 4-year-old.

You give the show too much credit. Not only is it a global blackout, electricity has stopped being a thing altogether. No generators, cars, etc.


Which is even dumber, because most life on earth would cease to exist as well at that point. Electrical impulses helping run pretty much everything in a body and all.

So wait, they're on a global electrical blackout... don't guns not require electricity? I think they just pretty much made every mechanical object where you can't clearly see all the parts stop working.

I mean my God, even blunderbusses are firearms.

fruitloop: PaulieattheTap: TheManofPA: I want to know why no one has a gun.

And why do they not have their towel????

Some people are still waiting for their Guinness towel.


You ever got one? I would write them a letter. I also have a Tullamore Dew towel.

TheManofPA: They panicked.


If you have your towel; You won't PANIC.

Hard part too is how fact the 400 menu is? Does that mean a McChicken or does that mean "A McChicken with no mayo" or just the chicken patty wrapped in lettuce?

Probably just the lettuce. It is McDonald's after all

This is the problem many of us have with the series. Chemical energy obviously still works in the commercials, but no one ha guns, no one is using steam power to do anything, etc. etc.

Is lightning still a thing? The world would be a much darker place (sorry) without lightning.

What about electric eels? Seems like they are getting the short end of the stick.

Someone should make that show.

'There's a global electrical blackout and everyone on Earth is dead. ...the end. What's on our midseason schedule?'

Give him Ragu 'cause he's been through enough

So Revolution is a complete ripoff of S.M. Stirling's "Dies the Fire" series, but without the logic, style, and grit.

Good to know.

In the Stirling books, the change is thought to have been deliberately caused by godlike external forces, but it's very much (as far as I've read) behind the curtain and unknown. The books are about how society reverts, not the Scifi plot necessity.

/Not as good as his Draka stuff though.
//Or the General series.

Hey NBC, the 100m is the biggest event of the evening, how about showing it at a time when your audience is still awake?

For some reason I was reminded of a football game I was watching, and picked out five players named Antoine, yet each of them spelled it differently. Including two that had apostrophes in there.

Honestly, I'm surprised the women haven't started wearing caps to run in, for aerodynamics. That weave has to add some appreciable drag over 400 meters.

Ever seen anyone so pissed to win a silver medal before?

She looks like a biatch. Well, to be fair, silver is still losing.

I fully expect that chubby kid and the phrase 'time for some Ragu' to become a meme. Make it so

Hopefully, eventually she will become self-aware enough to say, 'you know, I fell on my ass, I was lucky to get a silver.'
