I do love a new sci-fi series but I admit having been an avid watcher for so many years it does take something a bit different to grab my attention. To be honest I'm not sure how hooked I am on this new series but I'm willing to give it a chance. The show I'm talking about is the new NBC series called Revolution
So what's the idea I here you asking well I think the team at NBC publicity describe it best .....
"Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman's life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously - and unbeknownst to her - had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future. " Written by NBC Publicity
I'm only about 5 or so episodes in and so far its not bad. It sort of feels like its the bridging story to so many of the future post apocalyptic series I've watched. It is worth the watch and does get you thinking. So give it a chance and see what you think.
