To get the hype machine into overdrive for its new show Revolution NBC has released the first episode online and on-demand. I must say the show is very interesting and in typical JJ Abrams fashion ends with you wanting more and already having a ton of questions. The episode begins in present time as the worldwide blackout hits. We then quickly jump 15 year into the future and see how survivors are maintaining life in a world of no power. The show has a little LOST meets Jericho meets a western feel to it. And as expected the CGI is amazing and seeing big cities in ruins is really cool. Something tells me the Abrams flashbacks are going to play a big role in telling the story of Revolution. In this frist episode we already experience the flashbacks for introducing the main villain of the show.
