Warner Bros. Home Video will release Revolution Season 2 on Tuesday, August 19th. This is a bittersweet release since this was the final season for Revolution.
Imagine a world where all technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – has suddenly and mysteriously blacked out…everywhere. What’s left is a post-apocalyptic landscape inhabited by ruthless paramilitary groups, heroic freedom fighters – and a family struggling to survive in this epic adventure thriller from Supernatural’s Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions. Seen through the eyes of a fiercely determined young woman, Charlie Matheson, REVOLUTION follows a rogue band of rebels – including Charlie’s secretive mother Rachel and estranged uncle Miles, a former marine and militia leader – as they face danger at every turn in an attempt to overthrow the Militia, and ultimately return power to the people
When you have a show with such large cast that have stories within stories you have a lot on your plate. Since this was created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), expectations were high and in our opinion met if not exceeded. We won’t try and pick apart why this show didn’t live to see another day but we will point some of favorite characters, episodes and bonuses included in the second and last season of Revolution.
Let’s talk some of our favorite characters and why they were/are our favorite characters:
David Lyons (Monroe) is one of our top picks. It went week to week whether you hated him or cheered for him. We have been fans of David’s work since The Cape. Sadly another show that didn’t make it out of its first season. The way the story evolved from the first season as leader of the republic with a very broken moral compass made this show so much fun to watch.
Giancarlo Esposito (Tom Neville)- May be one of the best villains of the small screen. His resume was already impressive prior to Revolution. What makes Giancarlo so much fun to watch is the fact his character really don’t give a damn who he hurts, manipulates or kills to get his way. The second season really brought out every level of emotion that one can expect. While we want the heroes to prevail, if you don’t have the right villain then the viewer won’t care. It takes a special actor to bring the viewer who might not agree with the reasoning for their actions but still want to see what they will do next.
Zak Orth (Aaron Pittman)- We won’t say much as to giveaway secrets you will want to see in season 2. Fireflies…WTF…?!
To be honest, it is a great cast and we could go on for every member but you will better appreciate it when you see it firsthand.
Extras include 4 featuretters, gag reel, 2013 San Diego Comic Con panel with cast & crew and delted scenes.
The only disappointment was there won’t be a third season.
