Who’s to say that J.J. Abrams is not involved deeply in some of his own shows? We know that ever since perhaps the second season or so of “Lost,” the general perception is that he takes a back seat to some of the individual showrunners, but is that true?
While Abrams may not be involved in every aspect of the day-to-day operations of some of his products, the video below does make it clear to us that he is still the boss man, and almost everything major still has his stamp of approval on it in one way or another. After all, he speaks about “Revolution,” a show run primarily by Eric Kripke, like a man who is very much involved in almost every finer detail of what is going on. He shares just how much has changed between the end of season 1 and the start of this new chapter, discusses the move of the characters to Texas, and how most of the character are now living in a small town known as Willoughby.
This new season is one that probably did need a little bit more of an Abrams touch when it comes to the science fiction, and based on what we have seen so far from it, it seems like it has just that. This show benefits at this point from more mystery and an opportunity to get some of its characters in different places, and there is one thing that we would tell you to remember here as a symbol of hope: “Fringe.” There were many changes made between the first two seasons, which caused the show to eventually become one of the most-beloved genre shows of all time. We’re not saying that “Revolution” will get there, but it is at least another Abrams show that managed to improve greatly.
One more reason to have hope? The latest trailer, which you can see here, is actually rather awesome.
