I wonder when we'll find out who Grace was communicating with early in the series. We know it wasn't Randall.

I'm wondering if the true owner's of the amulets don't have some type of communication system setup.

If the rest of the world was still normal, I think in 15 years they would figure out that you can't fly in and come on ships equipped with sails when they get close or something. I can't picture the rest of the world just ignoring that the US just went dark.

I agree. I imagine if this did happen, that after a while of nobody showing up on our shores ....that it became apparent that whatever happened affected the world.

In the opening of the show, you can see the power going out all the way down into South America before they change scenes, although the eastern part of Europe is still lit up as the scene fades to black. I think it is safe to assume the inhibit field just hasn't gotten there before the scene change.

Yes, but that's what we, the viewers know. I believe Anubys was questioning what the CHARACTERS know. And he's right that they have no proof that the phenomenon is world wide, at least none that we, the viewers, know of.

I think it likely, though, that even were it not, and visitors came, that the vast majority of those in the electricity-free zone would remain unaware of that fact, simply due to lack of communication.

If it wasn't worldwide, rumors would spread pretty fast. Not to mention goods that require electricity to manufacture but not to function.

How is that a spoiler? And which one were you talking about -- Arzt or Aaron?

I think the actual quote was closer to "used for lumber or destroyed". Lumber does not (necessarily) imply firewood.

I was going to say "No wonder you have so many posts". Back when my "financial situation" suddenly changed for the worse my post count (on another board) shot way up.

People can get touchy about what you talk about from other shows in a thread not about it.

It was Arzt.

I was going thru one of my BSG reruns (being rerun on BBCA) to figure out which ones to delete and noticed that President Adar (http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Richard_Adar) looked very much like a guy on Revolution. It turns out to be the same actor that plays Flynn.
