There is gonna be a new show on NBC "Revolution".

"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, the 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.
From director Jon Favreau ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2") and the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke ("Supernatural"), comes a surprising "what if" action-adventure series, where an unlikely hero will lead the world out of the dark. Literally."

It looks like it will be fairly interesting, and I'm sure that some people will tune in to watch. And if it's any good we'll have to hope it doesn't go the way of Jericho(which may be coming back on Netflix by the way). If you want more info on it check this link. And to see some of the video's here is a link to a playlist NBC has set up of them.

The show center's around all electrical devices going out, which I hope they explain with something that makes sense. One thing is though that there doesn't seem to be any modern guns, but plenty of bows and some blackpowder rifles. Kinda confusing as I don't see why no one is using modern weaponry other than maybe everyone used up all the ammo somehow and decided they couldn't make more. Still this show is interesting and I know I'll give it a go at least.
