I haven't seen the show (don't have cable), but I have to ask:

So what is the "revolution" here, supposed to be revolting against?
The series hasn't aired yet, the pilot is legally available online and commercial free, and the show is on NBC, so you don't need cable.

The "Revolution" is either metaphorical (as in returning to our pre-electrical roots) and/or it's literal and will probably be either against whomever caused the blackout in the first place, or more likely against the local militia government which calls itself the Munroe Republic (one of many such competing governments in the former United States according to dialogue in the show).
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
