One hashtag is uniting Americans in the fight against Trump
Yahoo News - 20 days
Among the millions of vibrant, emotional images of protest packing our timelines since Donald Trump's inauguration, one simple six-letter word has stood out:  Resist. Variations of the word have dominated social media since the president took office in late January. In the three days following his de-facto Muslim ban, for example, #Resist and #TheResistance have appeared in over 2.5 million tweets, according to data provided by Twitter. SEE ALSO: Twitter accounts form digital army in resistance against Trump As the political turmoil brewed, critics of Trump created a range of hashtags — from #IResist to #ResistTrump — to post alongside actions in the fight against the policies of the new president.  These posts — and the IRL actions behind them, from marches to calls to congressional representatives — have all morphed into a new social movement. At the moment, it's a movement that appears to have no set name, no particular agenda and no single organizing force.  Unlike the #WomensMarch ...

What's Next For 'Revolution'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Last week's "Revolution" ended with a shot heard ’round the world -- or at least in Willoughby, Texas -- when Monroe (David Lyons) put a bullet in the back of Texas Ranger John Fry (guest star Jim Beaver) to initiate a war between the rangers and the Patriots, leaving Miles (Billy Burke) shocked and speechless.

'Revolution' Season 2 Premiere: 7 Reasons To Give NBC's Drama A Second Chance
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Revolution" returns to NBC for Season 2 with a new night and time, premiering Wed., Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET. Last season's finale saw our heroes make the treacherous journey to the Tower where they were able to turn on the power, but at what cost? Without giving too much away, it's safe to say that the effects of this move prove to be catastrophic for everyone. But is "Revolution" still worth your time in Season 2, especially with a slew of new shows jostling for the space on your DVR? Even creator Eric Kripke acknowledges that the show lost its way last year, telling TV Guide, "by the end of the season, around the time that we had drone strikes, I was watching along with everyone else and asking myself what is this show about? I just don't know what this show is about anymore." Having seen the first two episodes of "Revolution's" new season, we can attest that Kripke seems to have led the show back on the right track. There are certainly still some extraneous elements, but Season 2 ...

Giancarlo Esposito Continues To Be Awesome
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
If "Breaking Bad" has taught us anything, it's that Giancarlo Esposito is awesome, and that opponents should never underestimate any character he plays, whether it's the machiavellian Gus Fring or the steely Major Tom Neville, Sebastian Monroe's (David Lyons) right-hand man on "Revolution." Sadly, it seems that the slimy Randall Flynn (Colm Feore) has not yet learned that lesson, as demonstrated in The Huffington Post's exclusive clip above. Flynn has intimate knowledge of both the blackout and the pendants that can be used to power Monroe's vast array of destructive machinery, so he seems eager to put Neville in his place -- but Neville is more than capable of holding his own in a battle, verbal or otherwise. Check out the exclusive clip above and tune into "Revolution," Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, to see who ultimately comes out on top in this war of words. Here's how NBC describes this week's episode of "Revolution, titled "The Song Remains The Same." WHILE NE ...

Hit Blackout Drama Revolution Returns With a High-Voltage Showdown

Hit Blackout Drama Revolution Returns With a High-Voltage Showdown Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2013 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 11:36 am, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 When NBC's rambunctious action-adventure series premiered to record ratings last fall, it was all about a dystopian future world without power or technology. [...] when the show returns March 25 after a four-month break, we'll suddenly find our ragtag heroes, led by crossbow-wielding Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) and her sword-swinging uncle, Miles (Billy Burke), under attack by a squadron of military choppers. As actors, we felt like we were in the middle of a war zone, what with the helicopters, bullet hits and explosions. Kripke says he had to go epic to make sure Revolution fans - who haven't had a fresh episode since ­November - continue to follow the seri ...

The Craziest Ending Of 2013?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- It's easy to understand why Hollywood loves doing business with author Nicholas Sparks. His books are huge best-sellers, and several of the films adapted from his novels – "Message in a Bottle," "The Notebook," and "Dear John" – have achieved impressive box office grosses. The latest Sparks adaptation, "Safe Haven," will probably continue his winning streak, especially with its Valentine's Day opening pegged to lure female fans. A thriller element that has not been present in earlier Sparks movies is designed to draw reluctant male viewers to see the picture, but they won't respond with the same enthusiasm as his core audience of woozy romantics. The mystery plot recalls a 1991 Julia Roberts movie, Sleeping with the Enemy, in which the heroine fled an abusive husband and tried to re-invent herself in a brand new community. In this case our heroine, Katie (Julianne Hough), runs away from a toxic marriage in Boston, boards a bus, and on a whim gets off in a s ...

Denette Wilford: It's Only a Matter of Time For 'Revolution'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It's easy to find out what TV shows a person likes -- and, even more telling, what they hate. All you have to do is look at their PVR and see what's there multiple times, being saved for a rainy, really snoozy day. Take what I have banked, for example: "Once Upon a Time" (any episode with Rumpelstiltskin, good; any other one, meh), "CSI" (good, but not absolutely urgent), "Fringe" (not what you think -- my PVR missed the second episode of the season and we haven't had a chance to catch up online), and "Last Resort" (actually, I have no idea why that's there; pressing "play" now). Oh, wait. How could I forget the show clogging up most of my PVR's space? "Revolution." Oh, "Revolution." Sigh. I had such high hopes for the show. It started off so well. Remember that moment, in the pilot, when we first saw the lights go out? Cell phones dying, TVs getting fuzzy, radios becoming staticky, car headlights fluttered, then came to a halt, airplanes falling from the sky ... it was ...

Maureen Ryan: Why 'Revolution' Is A Hit (And Why It Still Has A Problem)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It's a question I've seen bandied about the Internet regularly this fall: Why is "Revolution" a hit? Why this show? Before I get to a few possible answers, I should say that I don't think the question is dumb. The last half-decade has seen dozens of high-concept TV shows fail, or half-fail for a season or two until they're put out of their misery. Ever since "Lost" was a hit, TV networks have been trying to replicate its weird DNA, but they have generally come up with a series of genetic experiments gone awry, not successful clones or upgrades. We're trained, by this point, to think that any broadcast network show that embraces genre elements is going to be more "Heroes" than Hurley. "Revolution" has avoided this curse, and I have some ideas why it has helped NBC have its most successful fall since dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Over the past decade, I've seen almost every episode of every failed sci-fi/fantasy/high-concept show, and I have the "Terra Nova" velocirapto ...

Revolution’s Casting is Justified
Boom Tron - over 4 years
I’m pleased as punch to here NBC’s Revolution is seeking a couple of Justified actors to fill some minor roles in the show’s first season. Is it awesome? You bet it is! You’ll be excited too when you hear exactly who has been hired to join the future drama. Though you’d be hard pressed to find someone from Justified’s impressive cast who wouldn’t be great to have around, there are still those that tend to stand out amongst the crowd. The only trouble is, this worries me we won’t see them as much on Justified, particularly in the case of one the actors. Care to know which one? I think we can all agree David Meunier does a fantastic job as Johnny Crowder. He’s easily one of my favorite recurring characters of the FX show. But he’s joining Revolution as recurring character as well, so how does that affect his availability? Is it possible this will cause a decrease in Johnny sightings in Justified’s upcoming fourth season? I’m hoping not, but who knows for certain? Considering Johnny ...
