Fifteen years after a permanent global blackout, a group of revolutionaries seeks to drive out an occupying force posing as the United States Government.
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman's life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously - and unbeknownst to her - had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.
I don't know where all these bad reviews are coming from. I would agree that the show started out slow during season 1. You had to stick with it during the first 4 or 5 episodes. But the show progresses and gets better and better.
Now we are a on season 2 and I think the show is incredible. Charlie is not whining anymore (as I have read here in the comments) but rather kicking some ass. There is also sorts of stuff that techie folks would love, plus non stop action and drama...the bloodiness of it some times reminds me of Game Of Thrones. The show is more realistic, and as of this season, better than the Walking Dead. And yet it has some spectacular stuff here and there that reminds me of Lost.
This is the type of show that I want to keep watching and hope it never gets canceled.
And if you're watching it from the beginning for the first time, just stick with it. I have witnessed people watching episode 1 and then declaring it a "bad show." You can even find instances of "i watched the first two episodes and bla-bla" here in the reviews. If you keep going you'll get hooked. Don't these bad reviews rob you have a chance of getting into a good show. So far I have been captivated by the show. Just enough to keep me interested. The show has so much potential, but it just hasn't quite met it yet.
There are many plot holes, such as why nobody has thought of using coal powered things before, or wind or water powered items. How would purely mechanical objects stop working? Etc.
The characters are all right, but could use a bit of tweaking. Charlie for instance - it just feels that her character isn't sure of who she is. One minute she is confident and stealthy, the next she is a blubbering thin stick that is useless. It's hard to get to know her character when she keeps changing her moods and actions.
I also don't like the main antagonist. He is a great actor, yet he is playing such a stupid part. The character nags his prisoner and eggs him to agree that he is crazy, or something. The prisoner agrees. Then gets slapped. Huh? Somebody have some bipolar issues? If so, please address it. This is leaving the fans contemplating whether the character is mentally unstable or if the writers keep switching off between 'nice' writer and 'mean' writer.
The plots have been decent enough, though. Though I would personally like to see more of what life is like in this world. We have only seen a couple instances of this.
I really hope this show doesn't get canceled before it can show its true potential and I really hope the crew understands this would be an amazing show if they just upped it a bit. Move things a long a bit faster. DEFINE the characters and not base their mood off a random spin- the-wheel-of-feelings wheel.
So, I think it's worth watching. But if they don't hurry it up and make some changes, it will get boring and old quick. Guns do work. There's many scenes of characters using guns. However, the country the main characters live in, The Monroe Republic, has outlawed private firearms ownership. Most of the guns are in the possession of the authorities or criminals.
In addition, it's been commented by several characters that ammunition for modern, pre--Blackout, firearms is essentially impossible to manufacture* and thus rare. It's use is reserved mainly for important militia uses. Even rank and file militia members have resorted to using black powder weapons. A flashback scene in the first season fall finale shows fierce fighting in the early years of the blackout and General Monroe comments that they are running out of ammunition and will soon need to ration it.
*This of course doesn't explain how people in the pre-electricity era had copper jacketed bullets for use in their S&W six-shooters and Winchester rifles. Most local gun clubs have members that regularly make new ammo by refilling their spent cartridges and casting their own bullets. Not every technological ramification of the Blackout will be shown immediately, but we do see across the first season that some of these technologies do still exist. There's at least one working steam train in the Monroe Republic and bicycle are in use in some urban areas for transportation. Diesel is used to power electric engines, so just as gas powered engines do not work, neither does diesel engines.
There are some diesels that will start without glow plugs, but they are larger industrial engines. But, even so, getting such an engine started in cold weather would be very difficult as hand cranking would not be easy to accomplish. While obesity rates have increased in the modern era, and particularly among wealthier nations, obesity is by no means dependent on a modern consumer society. There have always been obese people and will always be obese people. The in story explanation is that whatever happened caused systems to fail over the course of several seconds. Some failed before others. Modern airplane controls are electronic so the rudder and flap control would have been lost along with the shutdown of the jet engines but there is no good explanation why every jet would enter a flat spin instead of just diving at high rates of speed. Pilots on one of their discussion forums claim it is hard to put an airliner into a flat spin so having all of them perform the maneuver would not have occured.
But not all modern aircraft would go into a dive. 737's would revert to manual reversion. If would make the aircraft very difficult to land but it could be done.
The real reason that the lighting was still on is that television is a visual medium and it's much more visually effective to allow the characters to look around and see the lights flickering out than it is to have them all just suddenly go out for no reason.
The cities were largely abandoned, soon after the electricity stopped. The Matheson family was shown walking away from their home, with what they could haul in a child's wagon. As they walked through the streets, they were nearly alone. Almost everyone has fled from the city.
All cities would become uninhabitable, soon after such a disaster. In the immediate aftermath, there would be widespread looting, and other violence. Then there would be shortages of food, medicine and other essentials. Within weeks, disease would spread throughout any areas of concentrated population. People would flee, to escape the violence and disease, and to seek food.
Well-built buildings can last a long time -- if they're occupied and maintained. Deserted buildings soon start to fall into disrepair, and then decay. In the second episode, we see buildings burning, and no fire departments to respond. The fire fighters have probably left -- and even if they were still there, their equipment no longer worked. It's apparent that looters have vandalized many buildings. Vandalized buildings decay rapidly.
We don't need to imagine what happens to unoccupied buildings, that have suffered from vandalism. Just search for photographs of the urban decay in Detroit, over the last couple of decades.US Governments created a nano technology that absorbs electricity. It was originally used to remove the power of a third world country as a way to quickly win a war, yet a problem occurred which resulted in a world-wide blackout.
There are several hundred trillions of these nano technology robots around the world It takes days to weeks to properly shut down a nuclear plant so that there is no meltdown of the core and years to decades to properly decommission a plant so what happened to them? Why no nuclear fallout?
It's possible they are still running or have been shut down carefully after 15 years.. The nanites that absorb electricity might be destroyed by the radiation of the fuel or there maybe a field around the plants similar to how the amulets work to shut off surrounding nanites giving the military time to shut down the plants. a5c7b9f00b
