If you've been as excited as I have been to see NBC's new show, REVOLUTION, you need wait no more. They're screening it for the next couple of weeks on

I've watched, and I'm going to watch again. Associated with the show is the amazing Eric Kripke of Supernatural fame, so if we are treated to even a sliver of what we have had during the past seven seasons of that fabulous show, we are in for one hell of a ride. Who else is involved? Oh, only Jon Favreau, one of the best writers, directors and producers out there.

Pilots aren't the easiest time to show off something as spectacular as a new world, and this one spans a time frame of 15 years. From the time the electricity disappears to the new world that sprouts in its place.

Character development will take a bit more time, but by the end of the pilot, I had a distinct Fringe vibe, in that I felt they had taken me some place I wanted to visit again. It's been a while since I've had that desire, and I, for one, will be watching.

Considering it's NBC, that's a hefty commitment on my part. I don't have a lot of trust in them. However, with the success of Grimm, it's jut possible they may have found a formula for success they're willing to stand behind. Watch, and let me know if you plan on walking in the world of Revolution.
