    Ha, missed that but I kept getting interrupted and am going to watch this episode again! Very funny because I just made my daughter sit through the mini-series of The Stand 'cause she knew nothing about it. I like many of the actors in this show but need to get up-to-date...not necessarily a good sign that I let myself lose focus on it but I was intently watching Billy Burke the whole time. ;-)

    I actually enjoy the flashback portions and am big on shows that use this to reveal info more slowly - Revenge is similar in that, as was Lost. The brother was as creative he could be, I was rooting for him. I can stand the girl for the fact I was once a know-it-all teen and had two of my own. Thankfully, we all grew up and not in a world without electricity!

    Shows that use flashbacks like the ones you mentioned, wannasee, are often favorites of mine, too. They usually have a rich underlying story and the flashbacks kind of replace the expository narration in books.

    I liked this week's ep the most so far, really like the show, starting to really care about where the story is going and the characters.. the actors are finding their way with the roles more and more.. and I actually teared up during the last 15 minutes..

    Me too! I'm really enjoying the story and looking forward to seeing where it goes. The only trouble for me is all the fight scenes. I am constantly covering my eyes since I can't stand to watch gore of any kind.

    A show called "Revolution" might not be your best choice then!

    Being a huge SK fan and especially a fan of "The Stand" I noticed it right away. He also said something along the lines of, "Let's Shawshank our way outta here." when they were digging the tunnel.

    Really enjoying the show now especially as it is picking up more steam. Love that Kim Raver is on it now too! Anyone else recognize that "Hutch" was also from Lost? He was the airplane pilot that was on the last few seasons.

    My hubby, who's a wizard at recognizing faces, pointed that out. Me? I just said, "That guy looks familiar!" (I'm better at recognizing voices.)

    They've just ordered up a full season according to my newspaper, so that's the first step.
