There are a few things about "Revolution," which comes from "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke and "Lost" and "Alias" mastermind J.J. Abrams, that are rather perplexing. Like, if it's been 15 years after all electricity stopped working, why aren't people working with steam power more? And does that mean there's no more lightning? But the premise is admittedly really intriguing, and there are some well-drawn characters and eminently watchable actors (Giancarlo Esposito, Elizabeth Mitchell, Billy Burke) that will keep us tuned in to see where it leads.
