Jericho showed me that a post apocalyptic TV show, if done right, could be amazing. Then it left me high and dry by abruptly getting cut off second season and trying to tie up all the lose ends in a rushed finale.
Fast forward to 2012, we finally have a new post apocalyptic TV show that could be promising. It is called “Revolution” and it is going to come on Monday nights on NBC. The series will start airing as part of NBC’s new fall 2012-13 season.
The premise is pretty standard really all electricity and technology suddenly stops working and, TEOTWAWKI, SHTF, or whatever you want to call it ensues. Governments collapse and warlords rise up and seize control. The show begins from the present day and shows how the technology and electricity all abruptly fail, before fast forwarding 15 years to show an over grown chaotic shell of the word we once knew.
The trailer is pretty good and it leads us to believe that this show will be graphically intense as well as action packed; full of sword fighting and bow and arrow combat.
Hopefully this show doesn’t suck, check out the trailer below.
