New Post Apocalyptic Series: Revolution


Wow, found a sleeper on NBC while checking out things on Hulu called Revolution. This new Post Apocalyptic Series is about when all the power on Earth just tops and the world is dropped into chaos.

The story tends to flashback 15 years at some spots to give you background of events that happened then and how they are shaping the now. In this future, humanity has fallen into anarchy and militias and thugs rule most everything. The story tends to focus on one militia called the Monroe Republic that is run by a self styled dictator and former military Sergent that has seized power. There is also a small rebellion of "patriots" that seek to bring back the lawful system and justice between a plot of a sister trying to rescue her brother after he is taken by the Militia because their father perhaps knows how to restore power back which would be a valuable thing to someone that is insane with power.

I don't care to spoil it for you but the story is well done and I have to say from a hobby point WOW! There is some damm cool ideas here like vine covered Ferris wheel, a church half sunk in the middle of a lake and vine covered rail road cars to name a few things. Simply stunning background, I may go back to write down ideas later to come up with scenery projects.

Check it out! So far, there is just two episodes! I hope this stays on for a few seasons! PLEASE!

  4. I have seen the first two episodes so far and I like it. The pilot was okay but the second episode was better and added more into the background. I can't wait to see the next one.

    1. I agree, the pilot had to setup the characters and start the plot rolling and that can tend to lead to a slow part but they rolled right into the action with the second episode. Can't wait for the next Monday episode!
