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.

    Don’t cancel Revolution. It one of the few shows we watch anymore. Too much reality shows this is different and enjoyable to watch

    The series began a little slow and filled with seemingly senseless bloodshed however, the writing and cast have evolved into a major story of interest. If the network decides to cancel this series it would be a catastrophic mistake as the story has now come to a point of actually being interesting and possibly have a message to pass onto the viewers about how history repeats itself through the greed and weaknesses of man.

    This show is riveting, action and suspense. One of the very best NBC has ever aired. If you took a poll, you would find there is a huge following of REVOLUTION. Renew is a no brainer.

    Don’t cancel, thie show inherited the mystery and surprises from Lost, one of the greatest tv programs ever.
    It must be renewed.

    I was a “Lost” TV show fan from the beginning. It was a new concept and would weekly provide answers to the many questions and mysteries thrown at us. But after several years they started do as many serial shows do, they had episodes that meant nothing in the big scheme and way too many repeats. I didn’t want to keep watching year-after-year with no end in sight and feared it would be cancelled and my time watching wasted as it was for Push Nevada and Dark Skies. Then they announced that the show would go on 3 more years with no repeats. Hooray! I’m sure they lost a lot of viewers with the “filler” episodes but those hung in there now could see the light at the end of the tunnel and knew there would be a conclusion and that the show would not be cancelled.
    It was a brilliant move to retain viewers. One that should be used more often. The TV show Revolution would be an excellent candidate for this type of programming. Already the show is turning me away with the “Bad Guys now the Good Guys” and it seems every two weeks we see another group fighting for control, it is way too much to keep track of.
    I can see viewers leaving after this season but if they would make an announcement that the show will have 3 or so more seasons they would keep viewers from leaving. What do you think?
