"Revolution" CBS Series On Life After An EMP

37 posts in this topic

I am surprised that some of you are going to watch it there is nothing realistic about it, the writers did zero research the character's in this shows reactions are outragiously foolhardy and they are difficult to relate to. They do things that none of us would do unless you were either stupid or suicidal not what you would see in people that had been surviving for the last fifteen years. Examples of the fails you ask. Ok first as Rod and any of the other pilots will tell you even with a total loss of power Aircraft will not go into a flat spin and fall out of the sky yes even jumbo jets can glide a bear to do but it would. Would a number of them crash while attepting to land? Yes. Second would a mounted force be able to walk right into a walled community with no one saying anything and surprise everyone in the community? Not likely that wall is a defensive balistrade any approaching unknown and the gates would be closed meaning there is a watch posted. Still not convinced ok how is it possible that after 15 yrs of no power all the bow strings and footwear ect are made with synthetic materials and in semi new condition. and the layout of their gardens do not lend themsels to sustainability, irragation or good growing practices (their squash, tomato's, peppers ect are in the shadow of the corn and the house. Then there is confronting numerically superior numbers with zero advantage betting only on your skills all of us who have carried weapons for a living know this is absolute rubbish. If anything this is a show that shows you the most direct way to failure and death. I could go on but you can follow it from there. This is not to say you shouldn't watch it those of you who know better at least but to those who are just getting into prepping this show could be detrimental to your future. The world even after fifteen years without a functionin government with roving malitias duking it out would not be as functional as they are showing. There would be a lot more chaos and you would not have to remind you children that it is dangerous out there.

 

Nice analysis warrior. It is a shame. I was looking forward to a good scifi show. They seem to be few and far between.

didn't watch it but APPARENTLY they have some sort of gismo that alters the laws of physics? You can't just turn electricity off, for crying out loud! If you did, the electro-chemical (electro - get it?) reactions we call nerve impulses would not tell our hearts to beat, just for starters. Secondly, the heck with Apocalypse, if I had a gizmo for changing the laws of physics I would collect my Nobel prize and rule wisely. I'm just saying .....

 

So as soon as the EMP is past, you can start rebuilding electrical stuff. That is why pre - 1985 cars (no computers) would still run for example.

 

OH, some of the more modern aircraft are in fact, subject to falling out of the sky after an EMP - most of the big, modern jetliners use computer controls to drive the aero surfaces so if an EMP burned out the computers, no control. It would take less than 20 seconds or so (accident evidence shows about 14 but I'm being generous) for the aircraft to go unstable, enter a dive and start shedding parts. Very messy result. All of the other stuff would be fine - loss of navigation gear but a flyable airplane.

Im sure there's more yet to unfold in the story... yeah its kind inaccurate/cheesy but what do you expect from Hollywood? im enjoying the series thus far.... but i have come to two conclusions:

Charlie is retarded.

and the black militia dude is obama incarnate...

Yes it is very easy to pick apart so many aspects of this show, do you really want all the woman to be snuggle toothed, dirty, mop headed? But I think that it is a good thing to have a program like this on the air, if it gets one million viewer, and 10% of them decide to put away a few supplies just in case, that's 100,000 fewer people trying to steal my shit, as well it seems that they are going in a interesting direction about gun control in the last (2nd ) episode the militia come across a farm who has some guns and kill him when he attempts to defend them, then the resistance goes to great lengths to get a gun from the militia

i just love the magic flash drive from office depot that suddenly will power the universe.. and how do batteries get affected when they run from a chemical reaction? swords and muskets really? when everybody is reduced to horse and buggy transportation there is going to be no widespread gun confiscation, not with 300 million privately owned firearms. hollywood could screw up a wet dream

 

dondon i do agree with the aspect of gun control and them showing that gun control leads to enslavement i just wish they would have more realistic in how they went about it.

What I'm saying is that we as we are knowledgable in the finer points of the survival arts are going to see every small flaw (not that there aren't HUGE flaws) in the story lines , the plastic jugs that they use for water are biodegradable and would have fell apart by now, they really just grab water from a stream no treatment etc the same as if we were surgeons talking about a medical show.......you'd never use a #5 scalpel for that or a 4x4 sponge, the respirator is hooked up backwards....I just feel that putting this discussions in the public eye and getting people to think about survival off the grid can only help the average idiot, and maybe we will not be considered as crazies as much, hell free market consideration , maybe more people start prepping and thusly thru supply side dynamics lower the price and availability of prep items

 

 

Personally seem to "lost"y to me

 

And the premise of the show is not an EMP it is a change of some form in the physics of electricity and it's transfer from what I'll pick up.

Week 3-

Charlie is still a dumbass that needs to be slapped.

Miles is a badass whos isn't letting onto what exactly his plans are/which side he's on...

that chick they freed who wanted the sniper rifle seems good/down to earth...

im glad the kid is finally getting some balls and seems to be intimidating the black militia dude.

And im really starting to like the nerdy, yet thus far useless fat guy... he's brings a different element to the show, while everyone has a plan, he's just kinda that not really knowing Wtf to do... lol

    • LMAO, Shepard Smith was on with a guy from a group that supposedly defends reports and guess what again the phrase< "American reporter that worked for the New York post" DUH he was not an American citizen. So what are we to do fire 55.000 worker dump the stock market by 1/3rd to appease the press the same press that did not defend the rights of Alex Jones HELL at least Bill Maher gets it and admonished a group he was in front of stating he did not agree with Alex Jones but he had the right to speak his mind,  but not a peep out of Shepard smith who thinks he's a journalist he couldn't write jingles for toilet paper. they put up some amazing number like 1400 that have been killed since 1992 but out of that only 24 were targeted the rest were collateral damage during fire fights. 24 for the whole world since 1992 wholly sh*t it's an epidemic IT's Russian collusion look there's a naked woman in someones bed. When you piss someone off your likely to get killed. Hell let's nominate Koshogi for sainthood OOPS sorry he is not a Catholic he's a MUSLIM. we need to stop muslim on muslm killing LMAO or it might catch on...lets hop so. I wnat to know where are the investigations on Hillery's dead pool how about the 10,00 plus dead for invading 5 countries in 5 years ALA George Bush then more stupidity from Obama What about over 1 million Christians murdered by Islamist since 2001 not a friggin' peep women taken in war for sex slave damn little rhetoric on that what about Lois Lerner from the IRS stifling freedom of association and political freedom? against Republican groups / tea party  only.
    • Californian are running like rats off a sinking ship don't let them win election in your tow county or state, why because they have not learned a damn thing they screwed up everything possible in Commiefornia and now that it is untenable they run away.  Three quarters of all the major cities are democrats in commiefornia and a bunch have had to file for bankruptcy they promised the city workers police fire and prison / jailers that they would have a forever pension with all healthcare and increases LMAO well it is time to pay and the b@stards are going to the bathroom to avoid paying the check. Commiefornians are coming soon to a town near you remember who they are and treat them like your lazy lying brother in-law. It's not that they are bad people it's that they are stupid just like New York city dwellers the rest of the state of New York is OK but they are trapped by the city no matter how they vote or what they do locally the city is the state and makes all the laws and rules for the state everyone else is like a person that closed the door on the taxi with their coat hung in it they are along for the ride and the ending is not going to be fun. I live near enough to Houston to see what democratic leaders smell like, snake oil and money illicit money there are enough gangs and dope there to float a tanker off a sand bar, and some how it gets laundered and ends up as political contributions.  the police department pension keeps going broke and they steal it from the fire department to make up the shortfall. Tehy can't keep criminals in jail because there are too many so they let them out to prey on more working citizens but I digress this rant is about Californians. The word sh*t bird means a person that where ever they light they crap all over and leave that is the definition of any of the escapees from the major democratic cities, as in San Francisco Las Angeles, Seattle, Portland Oregon, Detroit Chicago, New York, Boston, look at what they are allowing murders minimal sentencing on drug felons handing out needles condoms and credit cards to homeless criminals (they have ongoing police records) a tax on everything and fees tolls user fees  and more controls on private property and corruption in your face. Here is a few little videos on how illegal immigration hurts American citizens keeps pay scale down and kills local jobs for local children.         GREAT VIDEO ABOUT A LIVING WAGE          
    • I want to double down on my statement that ALL how many is that, ALL governments have a hit list for years any one of political or scientific stature has been in the cross hairs of their own country or another. recently HUNDREDS of genetic scientists have been killed all over the world China and North Korea have killed people Kim had his brother killed Russia has killed more than a few with Radio active elements this is just the tip of the iceberg nation states murder people all the time how about the Princes Dianna witnesses ?  Want to talk about a death toll Bill and Hilary's count could stretch across D.C. Any youtube search even if only partially correct  makes your sphincter catch second gear. At east all of Trumps detractors are still alive. While Bill was Governor there is a recording of his brother saying Bill has a nose like a vacuum  cleaner speaking about cocaine. so White Water all the sexploits and the stories of  Clinton foundation are all political lies well you can't sweep over a hundred dead under the carpet without leaving some lumps. Presstitutes (journalists that get paid to write poison pen notes) have built a wall around the Clinton's but I see that wall starting to crack all the lies spouted by the left seem to be reality but not on Trump but on the Clinton's they colluded with Russia they corrupted the upper echelon of all the alphabet agencies into Uranium One and a host of other nefarious deals. It's hard to rob a bank as big as the U.S. government unless you have some lookouts and insiders IMHO. I don't think much of either of the BUSH family as thy touted the same line as Obama the jobs are gone and they are not coming back our economy was not as good as it could have been but then again if your working for the banks and the E.U. and not the Americans that voted you in well you see what I mean. Bush Sr. made a speech and in it, " A New World Order" that should have sent shudders up and down the voter pool but because America is like 27th on the educational level of all countries you can see where that went over their heads. Everyone knows if your not smart street or otherwise your going to get taken and the American taxpayer has been fleeced screwed and lied to for so long they expect it and look forward to it NOW that Trump is in office they are begining to wake up and see all the lies from the last 4 administrations jobs can come back law and order can be restored we can have jobs and better trade deals and taxes do not have to go up every year now he is pressing to make all departments cut 5% given time he will pay for the military and the wall if we can give him a majority in the house and senate I think healthcare will be the next domino to topple.   WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE WE KNOW WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO FOR 40 YEARS GET OFF YOUR AZZ AND KNEES AND GO OUT AND VOTE.
    •   The 800 pound gorilla in the room is 55,000 jobs compared to one dumbazz journalist who had picked a side in this fight like all the Trump haters in our news services. Make no mistake there is nothing better than allowing thie incident to cut the throat of American jobs / manufacturing and drive down all the increased jobs that make the Obama administration look like the fools they were a quote from Obama was, "those jobs are never coming back" he was a fool then and made it worse by stating Trump would never be president.  It is not Just 55,000 jobs it is the stock market will also take a hit another reason for the left to to take a victory lap and jeer that Trump policies were pie in the sky Socialists will do anything to destroy this country "out of Chaos, order" they are doing their best to back socialists candidates who's policies will put us in the poor house, they want open boarders and then make Americans pay for their healthcare housing and food stamps and if they make another baby more more more goes out to minimum wage workers or flatbackers (whores)  I have seen this in bars that I have run, a short fall in their budget they go out and find a open wallet that needs some companionship, it's called prostitution. As far as this journalists now on fox news Harris Falkner is calling him an American based journalists to make it sound like he is an American citizen, He IS BOT. I had a lot of respect for Harris Falkner but she has shot that in the AZZ as far as I am concerned her and Don Lemon should start dating, but I don't think he's into women. Since the toppling of Rupert Murdock and his replacement I have seen a definite shift of some of the Fox news host to the left but there have been those that hated Trump from the beginning Daina Perino was a never Trumper along with Shepard Smith who wears more eyeliner than any woman I know. Bill Hemmer is a piece of work he just want to magnify himself he would shoot himself to get attention (attention deficit disorder ). Jon Scott his family couldn't spell so he was traumatized by their ignorance so he decided to get a degree and forgot to change his name to JOHN he is about as exciting as bumper rust. Brian Kilmead another Attention deficit disorder  champion, then there is  Eric Bolling  a never Trumper he is a democrat in a morons clothing I think he successful at fooling us he's not, just left of pocket book style Yankee liberal who probably voted for New York Mayor  Bill de Blasio.  I see where the Democrats want to take down Trump and they are willing to tank America to do it because any fool knows when the stock market falls it goes right back up so it would make them look like saviors if they manipulate the president into making this Koshogi journalist thing into a pull the Saudi Military arms deal out from under 55,000 American workers  The democrats don't give a hoot in hell about Americans especially if they have a job, they want sniveling crawling beggars at their feet begging for the crumbs Trump gave them back while they hold the whip and send our jobs overseas and make a fat check for doing it.
