Just started watching Revolution.
It's not bad, for an alt-future dystopia. Unfortunately it's currently suffering from "Lack of Beth's Favourite Parts of Dies The Fire"-ness. And considering the premise, the fact that I'm currenty able to compare it to a series that likes belabouring the details is making it suffer.
Guns work. Did we just Alien-Space-Bat all the electricity out of existence and leave the guns behind? Poor form, TV show; the no-gun rule made the schitzo tech of Dies the Fire more fun.
Also I want my crazy SCA people, my kilts, and my cannibals. (poutpoutpout)
I'm also having a very hard time believing in the costuming. Sure guys, after 15 years of course there is cotton to make new ACDC shirts from, and your plastics industry is still functioning to allow you to print shiny lettering onto the shirt. There's been no big die-off due to millions of people starving to death or dying of disease, we can still support industry on that scale.
Or, alternatively, Fat Geek Guy had a stockpile of 10 ACDC shirts prior to the Blackout that allows him to be wearing a new-looking unfaded shirt. In a world where the washing has to be done by hand. Sure.
