'Revolution' extended preview: Let there be darkness!

What’s more incredible than Aliya Mustafina’s dazzling uneven bars routine? Try the thought of a world without cars, lights, television, computers, or air conditioning. That’s the premise of NBC’s Revolution, an apocalyptic series from J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau – and if the extended preview that aired during tonight’s Olympics coverage is any indication, a post-electric society could be just as riveting as the London games.

Check the clip below to catch a glimpse at Revolution’s first episode, which features analog weapons in action, a spooky flooded Chicago, a plucky girl with a boy’s name, and Giancarlo Esposito being Giancarlo Esposito.

Here’s hoping our electronics will last until Revolution premieres Monday, September 19.
