I say "of", you say "a", I say "revolution", and you say "jah".
Anyway, for those of you who don't know that's the chorus of Of A Revolution's (O.A.R.) song Crazy Game of Poker.
Seeing as this show is almost certainly dead and all but gone, along with this Wiki, I was wondering if any of you still reading this Wiki had seen the new trailers for the show "Revolution". It's coming out in September on NBC. At first glance this looks like what a lot of people were hoping for with Terra Nova: A fresh start for humanity.
Brief summary: technology no longer works. I didn't see any guns in the trailers so it's hard to tell if they don't work too (a la S.M. Stirling's Dies the Fire) or if it's long enough afterwards that they've run out of ammo.

Ok, so I'm starting to write a Terra Nova Fanfic right now. It's why I got so obsessed with knowing the size of the wall (and the colony) in my last post. So, I'm rewatching all the episodes. And there's a lot of continuity issues. Chief among them, Skye being THE Sixer spy.

I got a little obsessed this week with trying to find out about the wall. It occurred to me that the wall is huge for the number of people it probably protects. Though we don't actually know the number of people at Terra Nova either.
I took one of the flyover pictures and a basic estimate of the size of the gate to try to work out a circumference for the wall, and from there find out an area inside the wall to get a good estimate of how much farmland they had inside the wall, which in turn would give me a rough idea of how many people lived in Terra Nova.
It didn't work. The main problem was that the fly-over pics were at an unknown angle and my Trigonometry classes were too long ago. I was able to make a rough guess though and that led to m…Read more >
