Watch an Extended Preview of JJ Abrams’ ‘Revolution’
Posted by geeksyndicate on August 8, 2012
I may watch the first episode of this but I’m not sure if I can take another post apocalyptic show. We currently have Walking Dead and Falling Skies doing the rounds but there have been so many other shows and films treading this same well-worn ground that it’s getting harder to be enthusiastic when I hear about another one coming to our screens, even if it is being helmed by JJ Abrams.
Out of all the characters I saw in the extended preview I thought one (the bad ass uncle) looked remotely interesting the rest just looked pretty, bland and extremely clean-cut for post apocalyptic survivors. Still it’s only two minutes of a TV show so I won’t completely condemn it until I’ve seen a few episodes and make a better judgement. Hopefully old JJ will pull something out of the bag to surprise us all and put a new spin on a well used idea.
Be warned before you watch the preview there are spoilers in there.
Have a watch and let us know what you think.
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks.
