The FIRST Revelations LiveJournal Community!
I've been looking foward to this show since they started showing ads for it, hoping it would be really good. Well, I was entertained--and left feeling as if I'd watched the first half hour of a movie, as if we were only now beginning to really see what might be going on.|
This is my main question, my main problem with the show, and if anyone has any ideas, please share!
In the first episode, Sister Josepha tells Dr. Massey that all the signs are in place. What is she referring to when she says "signs"?
Under the section labeled 'The Signs' on this site, NBC lists the cross on the mountain, the baby at sea, the 'delog' (the brain-dead girl), and 'He Who Does Not Bleed' (the Satanic cult leader now in prison).
I can't connect any of those with any of the signs of the apocalypse of church tradition or pop culture.
Apparently Dr. Massey is also supposed to be a figure of the prophecy since his symbol is the deer, which the delog drew--but Sister J doesn't seem familiar with this symbol.
What ARE those symbols on the map, for that matter? "symbols from galileo's time"? A little more explanation, please, NBC! How did Sister J. use that vague thing to find Dr. Massey in his office, on the universtiy campus, in a certain city, in a certain state, etc...? How did she know his name when she asked for him if all she had to find what she sought was this map??
There's nothing more disappointing that a potentially good story that fails to live up to its potential because of missed opportunities and plot holes large enough to drive a truck through. *sigh*
