Revolution airs Monday, September 17 on NBC.
I love this show! The free full-episode pilot is on Xfinity OnDemand, and it is fantastic.
***MINOR SPOILERS, DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU CALL MINOR, SO LET'S JUST SAY SPOILERS AND LEAVE IT AT THAT***
Revolution is created by J.J. Abrams, and takes place in Chicago, 15 years after all electronics—plugged in or not—mysteriously "blacked out". Very Divergent/Insurgent-type setting, even complete with a rusted over Navy Pier and O'Hare as an airport graveyard.
People have set up their own villages, townships, and militias, equaling death for whoever disobeys. A group of militia come to the village where Charlie—the main character and heroine—resides, in search of her father. However, her brother, Danny, thinks otherwise, and soon, a bloodbath ensues. The militia captain takes Danny after his father is shot and killed, and Charlie hears his dying wish,
Charlie goes on a quest to avenge her father and save her brother, all while trying to manage to survive.
Great show, good job, NBC.
