NBC has released a slew of new TV trailers for their fall schedule. The main genre release for NBC is JJ Abrams’ Revolution. Revolution features the talents of Billy Burke (Twilight), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and Andrea Roth (Ringer). J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) will produce the project. What is Revolution all about? The video below pretty much says it all.

 Hmmmm, could be interesting.  Why no mention of Jon Farveau in the article?  The video started with "The Director of Iron Man"  I would think that would be a big piece of info to know in addition to JJ.

Since Alcatraz died off, I will give this one a shot.  Looks pretty good so far.

It has potential...if they don't concentrate too much on the kids aspect and the brother crap. Will check this out for sure.

 Wow!!!   An original premis.  Looks like a solid cast.  Great storyline laid out in the trailer.  

Only one problem.  It's airing on NBC.  Maybe on ABC it would have a better chance.  I will be there to watch this.  i just pray they give it a decent night and lots of support.  this could be my new favorite show when Fringe is done next season.

 It should be on AMC.  NBC and ABC dont have a freaking clue.  Don't let me get started on SciFi.

Agreed, being on NBC is the kiss of death for this show. On the off chance that this is any good it will be ignored because it's on NBC. But on the other hand it offers something different in the 10:00 hr for people wanting something other than a police procedural.

I actually think NBC will have its series in good hands going forward since they're limiting their series to 13-episode seasons from now on.  It cuts down on production costs and forces the writers to be more condensed with their storytelling, so we won't have subplots that drag out for 3-4 episodes at times (looking at you, Heroes).  On top of that, we won't have to deal with 3-4 month lags in between the fall half and spring half of the season, which killed series like Flash Forward and The Event.  I'm really interested in checking out Revolution, along with a few other new dramas this fall, and I think this could be a real winner.

 So it's Jerimah, Jericho, Lost, and The Postman all rolled into one. 

also... there are some questions that would have to be answered... 

A EM Pulse wouldn't stop a battery from working, nor would it stop the chemical process that makes a battery work. For it to stop a chemical process from producing electricity, it would also have to stop your brain from using electricity...... assuming for a moment that it some how only did this to inorganic sources, thus static electricity and electrical storms stop but electric eels and our hearts and brains keep working... for it to effect the world would be a bit difficult to hide. Particularly as it's working for 15 years straight. 

Also the fall back as far as that seems a tad odd... Electricity is only 150 years old really, I'm sure given 15 years most cities would work just fine... 

I'm a bit critical of shows where the basic plot is flawed on a massive scale... I'll watch the first episode if I'm not satisfied or they go all Lost Idiocy... I will turn it off. 

It has a neat concept, just has alot of questions.

 @Kaziklu well you must know a plat point nobody else does because the official synopsis says " 15 years after the world's energy sources suddenly and mysteriously die out" 

Doesn't mention an EM pulse as that isn't very mysterious.  And for the abouve I didn't even notice the Monday at 10 scroll.  Mondays are good.  Mondays at 10 i'm not 100% convinced its the right spot for it.  But like I said looks interesting enough for me so it's got my views.
