"The Great Circuits Fall Quiet, One By One": Clip From "Revolution"
That's an image that has stuck with me, resonating with all the years of reading dystopian novels, of watching the great circuits fail and the world plunge back into darkness. That's probably also why each trailer and clip for "Revolution" has gotten me so excited, even though I know that science fiction event series on NBC have a relatively abysmal track record.
Here's the latest clip, which shows the world as we know it coming to an end, in what I assume is close to the beginning of the pilot episode:
That header up there from an earlier trailer and I assume that the shot of Wrigley Field is the set up for explaining that the world ended just as the final out was recorded in a Cubs' World Series victory.
"Revolution" premieres on NBC on September 17, presumably about three years before they fire the show runner.
