    I love post-apocalyptic stuff, so I'll be recording this one. I'm hoping it's good, but a few of the clips I've seen remind of of teh teen melodrama that ruined Fox's Terra Nova.

    I've seen this before. It was a bad adaptation of a great David Brin novel called "The Postman". It had the same feel to me.

    I'll give it a chance, but don't expect it to last more than a single season.

    Oh my God. :eek: Just the fact that they use VAST music for that trailer forces me to give it a chance.

    This is the new show I'm most excited about. But I also, like others, fear it will not last. It will either be epic or an epic failure.

    Directed by Jon Favreau...with Giancarlo...in Chicago? I'm there, even though JJ could mean it's another Alcatraz.

    You know it's a fantasy if they have the Cubs in the 2012 World Series.

    Looks like it would make an interesting miniseries. I too love post-apocalyptic stuff but in recent years it typically hasn't made for good TV shows. Glad to see "Gus" has another job though.

    This looks great. This could make NBC a viable network again.......

    The setup reminds me of the early-1980s fantasy novel "Ariel" by Steven R. Boyett (and its more recent sequel "Elegy Beach") -- although in that case, although modern technology suddenly stops working, magic suddenly starts working, and fantasy creatures such as unicorns and dragons suddenly exist on Earth as well.

    So maybe that'll be Season 2 of "Revolution."

    I feel like I can skip the pilot now. Man, they gave away everything in that trailer!

    It looks like something I'd love, but that just means I expect to be disappointed. I also get a Terra Nova type feel from it.

    I'll definitely be watching the pilot, but I sure hope they take lessons from some of the failed serialized dramas of the past several years and try to fix those problems.

    It feels and awful lot like Terra Nova and The Event. I was very excited about both of those shows and didn't make it past the pilot in either one. I hope this one is better.

    Especially the last 15 seconds. That was something they should have kept under wraps and then just let it be revealed as a surprise at the end of the first episode's airing.

    That seems to be required this year. Just look at the new Pixar movie Brave.

    I'll watch, as it's in my wheelhouse, but I bet it doesn't last a season. It's not a cop, medical or law show. It's doomed to fail. (and I hope I am wrong!!!!)

    Amish will rule the world with warlords from medieval and mountain men recreation societies. :)

    When the tablet went blank but still on it should have gone black because aren't batteries destroyed also?

    At least I have a place, I would be come an ale wench. (women were the main brewers during the Middle Ages)
