Tv Season Info

In this epic adventure thriller from Supernatural's Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: 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.

I think it's worth giving Revolution a shot for its surprising imagery, strong adult characters and fascinating possibilities.

The pilot was excellent, but where does it go from here?

The lights have been out for 15 years, and no one has the slightest clue why? Oh puhlease.

It isn't an organic creation, so much as forced genetic manipulation of sci-fi characteristics.

A series that-attempting to gratify the Hunger Games-stoked appetites of teens while also sating their parents' thirst for serial intrigue-serves up thin gruel indeed.

There are several things to like in a story that picks up 15 years after a worldwide power failure.
