Storyline

What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology -- computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights -- has mysteriously blacked out forever. Written by ahmetkozan

Goofs

Throughout the series, a common television error involving firearms takes place. Usually whenever a gun is seen or pointed, a gun cocking sound is heard when the character is not cocking the gun or in some cases with hammerless guns that cannot be cocked. This includes after the sound has already taken place, such as when the character re-points the gun at another person. Doing so in real life with a semi-automatic rifle such as the ones used in the series would result in a round being ejected from the gun, which does not happen. 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.

Almost End of Season 1
28 May 2013 | by jason-697-936376See all my reviews

Well, I watched Revolution from the beginning of Season 1. I am an Electrical Engineer and I said "Lets just negate physics for the sake of a television show" for a little while. I wasn't very amused in the beginning and boredom really just kept me watching this show. So, as I said, boredom kept me watching and the reasoning behind the electrical blackout was interesting. The characters began to grow on me and I slowly started to enjoy the overall storyline. Is this a Shakespeare play??? NO, but it is a bit of fun in the end. Just kick back, drink some rum and coke, microwave some popcorn and enjoy the FUN! I think we should be into season 3 or 4, but just at the end of season 1. OH, and I love Elizabeth Mitchell!!!
