The promos for this week’s Revolution, called “The Children’s Crusade,” promised us answers about the cause of the blackout. Well, we did get some answers, but nothing too surprising or shocking.

Revolution Recap

The promo for this newest episode of Revolution, titled “The Plague Dogs,” teased a character death. Indeed, someone didn’t make it out alive – and this wasn’t a flashback death.

The latest episode of Revolution supplied us with torturous near-successes to turn a bit of power back on, torturously emotion-charged revelations about a few characters’ pasts and, in the case of Danny and a few rebels, just plain torture.

The wait is over: After months of promos and steadily building hype, the new event series of Fall 2012 has premiered.

This high-concept show poses a big “What if?” Revolution asks, what if all sources of electrical power ceased working all over the world? And it looks like we’ve got a whole series of mystery-filled television to tell us the story of what that electricity-stripped world looks like.

We dished about pol parties and larger-than-life wigs with the comedian-cumrabble-rouser, whose third concert, ”Revolution” (Unrated, 85 mins., Wellspring), is out on DVD and whose newest nationwide tour, State of Emergency, is in full swing.
