    Looks potentially awesome and awful all at once. I think I'd have a hard time believing that someone couldn't just harness a river and make a generator or burn some wood and create a small power plant. Electrons don't just magically disappear.


    See? I'm already ruining for myself.

    it will last 1/2 a season,
    maybe a full season
    but will definitely not be renewed

    Hesitant to watch it because it does look it has that melodrama that Terra Nova had.

    I'll record it and take a look, but I feel like it'll get cancelled.

    That's a terrible Haiku.

    Terrible logic, too.

    I'm sure the exact same thing could have been said, with the exact same justification, about Lost.

    I'm reading a book by SM Stirling that has the same premise--somebody in this thread recommended it earlier. It's one of those things that is impossible, but yet you are seeing it first hand, so you had better get on board and react to the new situation, or you're done. When the zombie apocalypse comes, it does no good to sit around saying there's no such thing. ;)

    Useless to say in this forum, but lets just accept the premise instead of debating how impossible it is. Please..... :D

    I think you're making Rob's point for him.

    Even from what little we've seen in the trailer, it seems clear to me that there's an ongoing suppression effect -- it's not an EMP, it's much more interesting than that. And the amulet temporarily cancels the effect in a local area.

    It scans more like the end of a limmerick.

    Looks to much like Terra Nova and Falling Skies.

    I'm wondering if it will even last a whole season.

    Say what you will about the ending but that was still two of the best seasons of TV I've ever watched. And parts of 3 and 4 were also still goof. As much as I love Firefly, it did not really even last what would normally be considered a full season -- who knows how it would have gone.

    The only thing I can think of similar is a book I read called "The Trigger" by Arthur C Clarke. It's premise was that a device was created that "supressed" all explosions, rendering bullets, bombs, and all explosives inert.

    It lasted six years, and made ABC a TON of money.

    Or did you mean something else? :D

    I meant for the viewers.

    But I guess it's all a question of perspective. :)
