    Watch the preview, it is good; but, I remember when Jericho was going strong on CBS - they did the slow kill off!

    Hopefully this can stay.

    Called Revolution

    About the show:

    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, the lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it?

    On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman's life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously - and unbeknownst to her - had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.

    From director Jon Favreau ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2") and the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke ("Supernatural"), comes a surprising "what if" action-adventure series, where an unlikely hero will lead the world out of the dark. Literally.

    I'd would watch 'Revolution' only because of Giacarlo Esposito (Capt. Tom Nevile) whose role in 'Breaking Bad' was believably convincing. He is an intense actor and I'm sure he will do this premiere proud.

    Looks like Lost meets Jericho. But J.J.Abrams is awfully good. This has my interest - I'll give it a try. Thanks for the heads-up.
