    I'd rank this new series as "To New To Rate" (TNTR) at this point.

    Some of the characters are really tough to relate to, but there's enough happening to keep one's interest. Perhaps another 2-3 episodes will help determine if we keep the series link on the HD DVR here or bail.

    Revolution stayed strong with a 3.2 rating on 10/1, helping NBC to the top on Monday. The third episode was down slightly from a 3.5 last week.

    However, Revolution was 166% ahead of last year's show in the same time slot (Playboy Club).

    I'm continuing to enjoy it with each passing episode. No, not great TV, but good enough to keep a timer going.

    Haven't watched this weeks yet, the ending of last week was kind of a surprise. Think they watch Hawaii 5-0?

    Yeah, but that is setting the bar awfully low.

    Did you notice that in the clip of the lights going off, it only shows north and soutn America, never Europe, Asia, Africa, or Australia. Are the lights off there too?

    In the scene where the computer powers up, the shelf above the computer has a bunch of lead-acid car batteries wired together with jumper cables. I assume we are meant to deduce that the pendant locally cancels whatever is suppressing the power and allows the batteries to power her computer. This would suggest that if we could turn off the suppression, everything would power up again.

    The electric has been gone for how long?

    Lead acid discharges even when not used. Lead Acid batteries have a finite life even when unused. The only ones that could sit for long periods of time were the ones where you bought the battery and the acid came separate and you had to add it to the battery.

    I believe those are long gone however.

    No way those batteries would be working after even 6 months unless they could also be kept charged.

    That is just one of teh inconsistencies you need to ignore. They also showed the music player and iPhone coming back to life for a few minutes when the button was pressed. Same thing is true for those batteries, so I just take it as whatever is suppressing the functioning of electricity is suppressing the discharge of batteries.

    I am enjoying the show and do want to see how the story develops. They are releasing enough elements of the backstory to keep it interesting.

    I hit rewind when the iPhone came on to make sure it didn't show as being connected to a network. :lol: Anyone else?

    I guess I was thinking that whatever is preventing current from flowing in electrical devices, aside from biological systems, is locking electrons in their positions, so the batteries will not self-discharge because self-discharging is in fact a minute current flow.

    I wonder if lightening and electric eels still work?

    Ha...yeah, I didn't need to rewind, but I did specifically take note that it said "Searching..." instead of listing a carrier.

    It would also have to stop the chemical reaction that slowly destroys the lead plates.

    Hey! If you're going to allow magic (no electric current through wires no matter how it's generated) then nothing is beyond believability, right?

    Heh. Although, there could be WiFi everywhere; just no one on earth would know it, as there is nothing to access it, except the momentary life in the strange house. .....

    [This WiFi that I've invented goes through cement and steel walls, and is a min. of 3 Gigs/second, available everywhere in the world except below 20 miles into the earth's mantle.]
