Revolution is based on the loss of 'electricity. However, Shovels, axes and picks were abundant in homes. Doesn't take a Rhodes Scholar to use these tools. What was the loss caused by? After 15 years with out electricity, no one has remembered how to use hydro power to make grains and electricity. I think someone needs to hit a home run on the second episodes to make it believable to watchers. Right now the plot is anorexic compared to Falling Skys.
