Revolution (season 1)

{4/5} “‘Where are you going?’ ‘Uh, this little place called shut up and stay here.'”

Revolution season 1, aired in 2012-13

All the electricity in the world fails, all at once. Fifteen years later people are living approximately the way they did in the 19th century. When militia members kill her father, Charlie sets out to find her uncle Miles — the last thing her father told her to do. Even that will be difficult, as she can trust no one along the way. I love the underlying mysteries about what happened with the power and what the people who know about it are doing. The characters are constantly in dangerous situations, and there is a surprise at the end of each episode. There are tricky moral situations, and some implausible fight scenes. Stars Elizabeth Mitchell and Giancarlo Esposito.

Created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural).

I watched a few episodes of season 2, but I’ve decided to move on to something else. I like the premise and the characters. But there’s too much killing, and the storyline is often frustrating.
