Revolution takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. Fifteen years earlier, an unknown phenomenon disabled all advanced technology on the planet, ranging from computers and electronics to car engines, jet engines, and batteries. People were forced to adapt to a world without technology, and due to the collapse of public order, many areas are ruled by warlords and militias. The series focuses on the Matheson family, who possess an item that is the key to not only finding out what happened fifteen years ago, but also a possible way to reverse its effects. However, they must elude various enemy groups who want to possess that power for themselves
1. Anyone want to make a guess what is the medallions significance?
2. Who is the black woman at the end?
Unknown my a$$! It was the DEMOCRATS!...............
NBC? Nothing But Communists?
Sorry, I’ll miss that one.
Tired of post-apocalyptic, vampire and “new normal” (read: homosexual) shows. Think I’ll stick with Turner Classic Movies.
That's easy. She is the founder of the Dharma Initiative.
S M Stirling has had a long running series of novels based on this idea.
the big question I have is whether the power went off due to an EMP or something else. Obviously the results look like an EMP, but there is no indication that it was a weapon, so the door is open for something else.
Should be a fun ride. I’m a big fan of JJ Abrams.
The series “Jericho” was well done.

Do you remember Jericho? The black woman at the end is the black man from Jericho: the secret agent working for the Cheney-esque man who destroyed the world for his own gain. She is the teaser to warn us that there is a fully-functioning world that is being withheld from the masses by people with an evil profit motive.
The medallion is the key to turning off the machinery that.... does something that defies physics by turning off all electricity but allowing nerve impulses and lightning to still work. And just when you are about to suspend disbelief over this, they show you an old MSDOS PC and electric light in an attic that is working.
This show has so many plot holes that its just ridiculous. Its set in a primitive world where the beautiful people have perfect teeth, wonderful hair, toned bodies, and nice leather clothing. They shoot high-tech crossbows that require aluminum bolts that never get lost or broken and even the strings are still in perfect shape after 15 years.
I thought it was lame.
Those folks sure do dress well to have been without power and most of life’s conveniences for 15 years. Pure style.
Where did all the water come from? How does losing electricity cause churches to be submerged?
We’re supposed to believe that one retired middle-aged soldier with nothing but a sword defeats a batallion with his only help a teenage girl and a shapely blonde (of course) woman with an accent.
Do these people ever eat? Plenty of alcohol.
I’m all in for a good sci-fi story, and LOST hooked me, but the jury is out on this one and not feeling very friendly.
What’s the name of the female character with the bow-
All I know is that it is another alternate world where the Cubs can’t win the World Series.
On the back of the medallion these words are printed in code:
“It’s Bush’s Fault.”
The premise seems too farfetched for me.
After fifteen years, the population were too stupid to figure out how to develop things?
I watched Lost for a couple of seasons, but it got worse as it went on. Recall the tall waving grass that waved for several episodes, only to find a polar bear cub causing it. But hey, if one polar bear in the tropics is good, why not two???
Many of these shows start out sort of okay, but either the writers run out of ideas or they just get lazy.
RE: Lost. The guy who played the young doctor was on one of the talkshows. He said the episodes in the first season seemed ‘thrown together’ because they were. They [writers and actors] didn’t expect Lost to get past 4 episodes, so, when it turned out to be a hit, they were in panic mode to develop the plot and more episodes.
If the women look that good in an apocalyptic world 15 years later sign me up immediately.
Oh no. She’s using a CROSSBOW. That’s so you don’t confuse her with the female character with a bow in Hunger Games.
I know what I thought when I saw it.
Black Stone of Kabah:

Now you spoiled it for everyone!! Just like in Jericho where the head bad guy was Dick Cheney, I guess the head bad guy in this one will look a lot like Mitt Romney or maybe Paul Ryan.
Missed it, but it looks like they are replaying it on Wednesday.
