Watch the Premiere Episode of NBC’s Post-Electricity Apocolaypse Drama “Revolution”

NBC’s Revolution premieres Monday September 17th, but you can watch a full-length preview of the premiere episode, right here, right now. For those who don’t know what the show is about, here is how NBC describes it:

What would you do without it all? In this epic adventure from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, a family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology – computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights – has mysteriously blacked out forever. A drama with sweeping scope and intimate focus, “Revolution” is also about family – both the family you’re born into and the family you choose. This is a swashbuckling journey of hope and rebirth seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos, “Being Human”), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, “Memphis Beat”). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke, “The Twilight Saga”), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. All the while, they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed, and if – or how – it will ever return.

Here’s the pilot, directed by Jon Favreau.

    They kill off two main characters by the end of the episode. Wouldn’t be awesome if a character or two died in each episode and the world and the story was explored by following one doomed character after another?

    and no I’m not a sociopath….but characters in anything by JJ Arbams beg to be killed.
