    They have been promoting the show Revolution on NBC during the Olympic coming in September. It is produced by Jon Favreau, JJ Abrams and Eric Kripke who was the creator of Supernatural. The show looks like a direct rip-off of Jericho which was on several years ago. Being that Favreau has had huge success in the movie industry I'm sure Howard will get behind the show. Almost everything NBC is involved with fails. Their track record with shows like this is 0.0. This is just another survival show. I don't care how many ways you change it. The idea isn't original. Nothing that uses electricity will work and people have to find a way to survive. Networks have been trying to come up with the next "Lost" for a couple of years now. This isn't it.

    You mention J.J. Abrams, but why not also put his name in the title since he was a friend of the show.

    I wonder if J.J. is going to give Howard a screener, so that we can all download it from BitTorrent.

    I know J.J is also friend of show. Favreau is probably going to call in the first week of September. Hopefully Howard will change the conversation and try to get Jon to talk about Ironman 3.

    They are certainly talented directors whom have made some great movies but having a big name director as producers does not necessarily mean a quality product.

    Keep in mind that Steven Speilburg was the producer of those transformers abominations

    Jericho or Jeremiah?

    I really liked Jeremiah and was pissed when it was just shit-canned, without an ending.
