This review is from: Revolution - Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
There is a place for fairly light, entertaining science fiction. This is a rather superior series that explores the intriguing notition of what would happen if the world's electrical supply simply failed suddenly. The answer is, of coure, nothing good. Society has collapsed into a series of power-struggling, dangerous gangs. Without sophisticated modern weaponry, they have fallen back on martial arts and sword play (seem to have been pretty fast learners!). The mystery of the failed power emerges as a central theme, as a motely group of characters travel a dangerous, fallen America. The acting isn't always good, the sword fights become dull, and the struggle between good and evil characters is a bit basic - but watchable.
