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

A recurring character error that takes place is when someone confronted by the militia fails to kill the leader of the unit that is confronting them, thereby putting the troops in disarray. For example, when Danny shoots his crossbow, he does not shoot Captain Neville. Then, after the deer hunter gives up his shotgun he shoots a soldier instead of Captain Neville. A third incident occurs when the militia is firing upon the rebels for the first time. The rebels have the sniper rifle and the militia leader is in plain view, yet the sniper does not shoot him. While Danny's incident could be attributed to a lack of combat knowledge, the same could not be said of the adults that made the same mistake. 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.

Give it time.
7 June 2013 | by jordancresseySee all my reviews

A slow burner for sure to start with but recently it's been very good and I've been impressed with the possibilities of where it can go, the current plot and characters have been average so far but I feel there is so much more to come here from Revolution and I'm always eager to see where the plot will go.

As for the complaints about the realism of it, ridiculous. It should not take away from the audience how white the clothes of the characters are, if you're not picky on factual details and enjoy entertainment then I suggest this program to you, as for a rating, I think it's currently about a 7 but has potential hence the rating of an 8.
