Female heroines. Grit. Intelligence. Yep, these are the qualities of television shows that usually get cancelled unfortunately. Plus the fact that Elizabeth Mitchell is in it. She has been in a couple of series that did not last very long (Revolution and V) while also being in one that lasted quite a while (Lost) so she is a little hit or miss in regards to success.
The central idea behind Revolution is survival on the planet without electricity. Not as simple as you think if you take a moment to ponder it. Radars. Cell phones. Food growth. Computers. All these things and many other things we count on would be no longer available to us. Yes, this was another post-apocalyptic type show but certainly not the worst out there.
