    This show reminds me of those 30ish serials, but without the cliffhanging between shows.

    Nice catch!

    I live one town over from Noblesville, and I admired that attention to detail in the writing.

    For those that had their schedule Revolution Monday episode preempted by Hurricane Sandy in someway, NBC will do a rebroadcast of that episode this Friday at 8:00 PM EST.

    So I watched the first ep something like the day after it aired just to make sure I wanted to continue recording it. Since then they've just been building up on my DVR. Well the past couple nights I've watched four episodes and I've decided that I'm really liking this show. Definitely reminds me of some of the things I liked about Lost.

    I just hope there's an explanation for why there is lightning and why every living thing on the planet didn't immediately die from no electricity in their nervous systems.

    Oh, that's easy :eek2: : Natural electricity is "allowed"; man made, no.

    How did many hundreds of millions (looking just at the US) die? War? Pestilence? Famine? Boredom with no TV?

    Are the leftovers bereft of any manufacturing skills? Farming? You'd think there'd be plenty to eat with the (tens?) of thousands left and all that great productive land.

    As far as I can tell they're having no trouble with farming, whenever they're traveling you see crops growing (especially corn) and it always seems there's farmer's markets in the towns.

    Stands of corn! Yes, lots. In straight rows and plots the size we're used to with machines that can plant or harvest acres in an hour.... Though maybe they can adapt a 12 row combine to pure mechanical operation pulled by a large team of horses or oxen.

    ^Don't forget about the very large, and ever growing, Amish population. My dads farm is completely surrounded by dozens of Amish farms that continue to plant large fields of crops without any reliance on fossil fuels or electricity. Granted some Amish communities have gravitated towards technology but there are hundreds of communities that still rely on the old methods.

    In a world without electricity the Amish would quickly dominate the "new" economy as they are already equipped to do so.

    According to a promo aired today we will find out tomorrow how/why the power went out. It will be interesting to see how the story develops if power is restored

    Think that happened to me as well. I noticed that it didn't record. When I checked the History, it says that it was canceled as it expected something else, Dateline NBC. I just downloaded it via VOD so I can watch it tonight.

    Ok, I caught up with episodes all the way to last Monday's - including the previews for tomorrow's show.

    Every time the show got worse, it got better after that. Now it's worse and worse for the last two weeks.

    An episode taken over by by endless unrealistic hallucination scenes?
    Running out of air in a subway tunnel minutes after a collapse?
    A subway tunnel (with rails) with acute angle turns?
    An engineer looking at a device and instantly telling it was a bomb - without so much as pointing to anything that might have been explosives?

    And, worst of all, in the previews...

    WORKING HELICOPTERS? AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS OF NO MAINTENANCE?????

    ...and they still haven't explained why everything isn't dead since EVERY form of multicellular life depends on organic electrical signals.

    Well after tonight, according to an article at CNN, we do not have to worry much until next March since this show is going on hiatus until then.

    I heard it called Fall Finale on a commercial break during Nightly News tonight. Something tells me its done. But I've been wrong before.
