How much the new "Revolution" (2012) (TV series) compare to the cancelled "Jericho" (2006) (TV series) remains to be seen but the similarities will be there. The new lifestyle in Revolution is 15 years after 'the event' but in Jericho it is only the first year after. See the video preview here. http://www.tgdaily.com/entertainment/65386-revolution-preview-crashes-nearby Here is a 5 minute first-look video with a lot of behind-the-scenes and interviews with cast & director of the pilot: http://www.nbc.com/revolution/video/revolution-first-look/1412426 Probably no vehicles and cars unlike Jericho which used cars pre-1985 before computer chips were in them. I'm looking forward to this series. Will a telegraph work on this show? That would be fun to see in this series since it works on the most basic of electricity principles. People in this universe have the education of 21st century technology and what can they make happen for communications with what tech does work without electricity? The raw materials and even cables to carry electricity are already in place. Will someone make a DIY homemade battery? Will someone use solar photovoltaics? Will an internal combustion engine generator work? Are there other drama series that have been done in this pre-industrial revolution style of technology that were not little house on the prairie? I'm guessing the pilot episode will be more like a movie rather than the first episode of Jericho. Episode 2 of "Revolution" will be how the series will be for the most part including the flashbacks to 15 years earlier. What do you guys think about the comparisons of these 2 shows?
