Coming to our Sky Channel this month is the new American sci-fi series, Revolution. Written by Eric Kripke, who also created Supernatural, it is set in a dystopian post-apocalyptic future.
Some fifteen years prior an unknown phenomenon wiped out all the electricity on the planet ranging from cars to computers and engines to electronics and so people are forced to adapt. Life has now returned to how it was long before the Industrial Revolution; horse power and cross-bows have become the norm. However, the government has collapsed and no form of official law enforcement exists. Instead, warlords and militia rule many areas.
The Matheson family are the focus of the series. They have in their possession a mysterious pendant that holds the key to what actually took place when the wipe-out happened, plus it holds the solution to reverse the effects.
