Revolution Revolution is back.

I've read several comments about Revolution that miss the point. They say, in effect, that they could make electricity. No. The premise of Revolution is that something inhibits electricity. Solar panels don't work. Alternators don't work. Human brains don't work. Well, I guess we have to give them a pass on that one. Natural electricity still works. Electric eels still work. It is only man-made electricity that doesn't work. Didn't I see lightening in one episode?

Another comment about Revolution asks how bad could it be? After all, we got along just fine without electricity up to around 1776. The answer is: bad. Really bad. In the pre-electric world, the population of the entire world was about one billion. It is now more than six billion. That means that five billion people have to get dead. Or, to put it another way, the struggle for food will occupy everyone's attention, full time. Most of the human race will have to take up farming. City folk will not find that easy. And even country folk will have a serious problem, because the crops they grow are genetically engineered not to sprout from their own seeds. And Monsanto isn't making seeds any more.

A new series, Defiance, begins this month and Warehouse 13 returns.
