It's OK so far, 7/10
I'm thinking they switched off the power because of an imminent alien attack.

Diesel engines would work. Why are they using steam? Ignorant writers?

If you like this insipid, far fetched garbage I have great news for you... you can still download The Bionic Woman and Battlestar Galactica if you are quick!
Ahhh, Revolution... the 70s brought back to life!
looks like the typical network scifi crap you get every year (V comes to mind). everybody is a model, flat character, and the writing is so insipid it makes your skin crawl.
Actually, the 2004(?) reboot of Battlestar Galactica was fantastic. It was high quality on all levels. One of the best TV shows I've seen. If you decide to watch it having never seen it before I envy you, you're in for a great ride.
Suffice to say, it's nothing like the cheesy 70s original. Be sure to research it a bit before starting. You need to watch the miniseries first (2 pilot episodes of the cylon attack) then follow the 4 seasons, 2 movies and 2 sets of webisodes in order. It's way more than a space opera, it's pychological, epic, humane, realistic, funny, exciting, relatable, intelligent, adult... the list goes on.
Here's the wonderful opening scene:

Thanks for the heads up... I will download it and see for myself.
Yes, the acting is subpar and the audience is treated like idiots (what do you expect from a network show?), but the premise is appealing enough and the story is intriguing so far, so I'm keeping up with it.
I read some funny questions on IMDB ... Like ...
Why are the lights on the planes spiraling down to the ground still blinking?
Yeah, yeah ... I know. It's just a TV show.
