TV show description:      
This dramatic science-fiction TV series explores the question “What would you do without it all?” A family struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology — computers, refrigerators, air conditioners, planes, cars, phones, lights — has mysteriously stopped working. Electrical power has simply gone away. The show also revolves around the idea of family — both the family you’re born into and the family you choose.

Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) is the headstrong, curious and daring daughter of Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Ben Matheson (Tim Guinee). Ben is hiding a mysterious secret about the blackout. Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips), a medical doctor, became involved with him following his wife’s death.

When Charlie’s younger and thoughtful brother, Danny (Graham Rogers), is kidnapped by militia leaders, she must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles Matheson (Billy Burke), a former US Marine and warrior who’s living as a recluse.

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 how or if it will ever return.

The rebel group includes fighter Nora (Daniella Alonso); General “Bass” Monroe (David Lyons), a former Marine who served alongside Miles; and Aaron (Zak Orth), a former Google executive and a computer genius who’s ill-prepared for the rigors of the technology-less world.

Captain Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito), a cultured former insurance adjuster turned Monroe Republic leader and Nate Walker (JD Pardo) is a member of the militia who has conflicted feelings for Charlie.

Meanwhile, Aaron (Zak Orth) and Rachel’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) efforts to save Priscilla (guest star Maureen Sebastian) from the nano-tech has unexpected consequences.

    Loved the premis of the show, very good pilot and 2nd episode…but then the last few had me wondering where were they going….very monotonous ESP. The young girl (fed up) with her lost puppy dog eyes and frowns…I don’t think it’s a positive sign when you are wishing cast members to die off…the show.

    Love the show. Although intense, it is thought provoking and has spawned some great discussions. Please don’t cancel.

    This is the first I have seen , I like and would like to see more.
    I also liked Terra Nove , don’t know why it’s gone. We dont need any more reality shows,or talent shows,Law,Cops and robbers, gays,,sex comedy. Enough preversion.

    Liked the pilot. Not over the moon but shows possibilities depending on character development and believability of the stories. Sounds like there will be a lot of flashbacks which is OK as long as they don’t overtake the importance of the story. Too many can make it disjointed and distracting.
    If it develops well I definitly would like to see it renewed.
