We got the HQ version of this still from REVOLUTION 1×05 “Soul Train”.
This is a snippet about Rachel/Miles’ past [SPOILER ALERT]
Sean: Revolution is my new obsession! Any scoop on what’s ahead, especially for Elizabeth Mitchell’s character?
How about a scooplet based on Rachel and Miles’ complicated past? You know, the fact that he turned her over to Monroe? Well, Charlie won’t stay in the dark about it for long, and creator Eric Kripke teases that it will be “pretty explosive” for fans when she finds out. We suggest Miles starts watching his back now.
We updated the reviews page with more reviews of 1×05, 1×04, 1×02 and general reviews. I’m posting just a few lines here, read the full parts about Elizabeth in the reviews page.
- Elizabeth Mitchell sells every scene she’s in because she’s Elizabeth F***ing Mitchell.
- it would have been silly to have Mitchell on the payroll without using her as much as possible.
- you’re better off getting more time with Giancarlo Esposito, Elizabeth Mitchell, and (finally) David Lyons than you are by focusing on the Danny/Charlie turmoil.
- Yet this is what Revolution did well this week – it gave storylines to the actors who need to be the focus of the show – Miles, Tom Neville, and Elizabeth Mitchell. Danny and Charlie become better characters when they become secondary to the adults around them.
- The audience is also gifted with a bit more Rachel Matheson, and frankly any Elizabeth Mitchell screen time is good for the show.
- I’m still hoping for more time for Esposito and Mitchell. “The Plague Dogs” proves that the more experienced actors are the show’s weapon, and can make even the most familiar of narratives work.
This is a very interesting Revolution review about what works and what is still a problem. According to this article by Huffington Post the problem with this show is the young actors and the fact that Charlie is too centric, but except for that it says very nice things about the series. What makes REVOLUTION works:
1. It kept the core concept simple.
2. Episodes are similar to each other.
3. Character motivations are easy to follow.
4. The show is a series of cliffhangers.
5. It’s uncynical and family friendly.
6. It’s aspirational.
7. It made Billy Burke, Elizabeth Mitchell and Giancarlo Esposito series regulars.
Mitchell and Esposito have proven in past gigs, they can make mediocre material good and they can make good material far better than it almost has a right to be. In fact, the work of these actors is almost — not quite — enough to make me overlook “Revolution’s” most enormous and annoying fault.
