Well, the first reviews are starting to pour in. And, there is a really awful one from The Chicago Sun-Times on the first episode of ABC’s replacement for One Life to Live … The Revolution!
Complete with lame segments and the boring metamorphosis of one women’s journey from her battle with weight to finally fitting into a smaller dress size, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, “There is nothing revolutionary about The Revolution.”
Here are a few excerpts from the review below:
“What it actually delivers — besides one long Macy’s commercial — is a bunch of platitudes, lame tips (“embrace color”), television’s millionth makeover and advice from the no-duh handbook. On Monday’s debut, style guru Tim Gunn (“Project Runway”) gave one woman a “Timtervention” by swapping her mom jeans for a miniskirt. He then shared one of the fashion world’s biggest secrets: High heels make legs look longer. Thanks, Officer Obvious. Maybe on Tuesday we’ll learn that hats are worn on the head. The show also focuses on one or two women — as their lives are changed during a five-month transformation that gets condensed to five days. Each week, the players will change. But you can bet the plot will stay the same, starting with tears and ending in a smaller dress size.”
