Storyline

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

Goofs

Early on in season one they establish that modern firearms are almost never used because it is impossible to produce ammuniton for them. By season two this concept is discarded and the characters routinely use automatic weapons. See more »

Quotes

Miles Matheson: We lived in an electric world. We relied on it for everything. And then the power went out. Everything stopped working. We weren't prepared. Fear and confusion lead to panic. The lucky ones made it out of the cities. The government collapsed. Militias took over, controlling the food supply and stockpiling weapons. We still don't know why the power went out, but we're hopeful that someone will come and light the way.

lacks sophistication, typical 1970s-era comic book scifi
27 September 2012 | by (Laramie) – See all my reviews

When I was a child of the 1970s, I really loved Six Million Dollar Man, Bionic Woman, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, and pretty much any other kind of scifi out there. What was their formula? Big imaginative premise (bionics, space battles, people who turn green when they get mad), a good looking cast of good guys and girls, and mean bad guys and girls. When better scifi came along, scifi that engaged me as an adult, my tastes changed and I could no longer really enjoy the old stuff the way I did when I was little. Love them or slam them, Lost, the new Battlestar and Star Treks raised the bar for what we expect of character development, complex morality, believability, story consistency, and adult themes.

Kripke goes back to the old formula and ignores everything that's come along ever since. As a result, we get a simplistic show that's aimed at children, and that's a very limited audience. We also get a good-looking soap opera quality cast that's better at posing than talking. Even Giancarlo Esposito, aka Gus Fring, abandons subtlety altogether in his role as the heavy. I suspect after a season, maybe less, this show will go the way of Terra Nova-- too expensive and too dumb for the 21st century.
