Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn
Revolution is an American post-apocalyptic science fiction television drama series that takes place 15 years after the start of a worldwide blackout. It was created by Eric Kripke and produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions for the NBC network, debuting on September 17, 2012.
The series takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. All electricity on Earth has been disabled within a single night, ranging from computers and electronics to car and jet engines. Trains and cars stopped where they were, ships went dead in the water, and fly-by-wire aircraft fell from the sky and crashed. People were forced to adapt to a world without electricity over the next fifteen years. Due to the collapse of government and public order, many areas are now ruled by warlords and militias. At the start of the series, United States of America has been split into at least five nations.
