An ultimately glorious opening in 2012, Revolution, tells us a story about post-apocalyptic future where the blood and soul of our technically advanced world has totally dissappeared "“ the Electricity. Imagine, that in one disastrous moment some unknown phenomena will switch off all the electricity on the planet. Forever. Imagine the world without computers, batteries, machinery, lamps, automobiles, airplanes, ships and train. It's needless to say that would be the world without a bank system, a medical system, a policy and, as the result without the power at all. In Revolution, these tiny forces allowing the electrons to run inside the devices wires are all run out in one moment all over the Earth and nobody knows why and what to do in order to restore it. The Revolution action takes place after fifteen years since the "blackout" "“ the humanity is not even looks similar to what we now mean by this word. There are no United States of America, but there are lots of small republics, counties and anarchies "“ all ruled by cruel leaders. One of those leaders Sebastian "Bass" Monroe (played by David Lyons: Eat Pray Love, The Cape and Mobius) is on the hunt for a man who wears a strange amulet (it looks exactly as USB flash drive), Aaron Pittman, a former Google executive, who received this "amulet" from his friend, Ben Matheson. The "amulet" appears to be a real USB data storage, and when we learn that Ben passed it secretly to Aaron just in seconds before the "blackout" it becomes absolutely clear that the USB-drive is somehow connected with the reason of "blackout" and may be a key to restore the electricity in the world.

The Neighbors

Sci-Fi & Fantasy
When you and your family just move into a luxurious gated community, all you have to expect are tranquility, peace and mutual respect of all the neighbors. But, what if "all of the neighbors" are the alien forms of extraterrestrial life, and you and your beloved ones are the only humans in this "society"? What will you do? Claim your real estate agent to cancel the contract? Pass all the extraterrestrials to FBI to conduct the inhumane experiments? No, you will teach them humanity and learn from them how to be a "good family" instead. Exactly as Weaver family does in this weird and sometimes "goofy" television series, The Neighbors centered on their unusual life among the aliens. But don't consider their neighbors some sort of ugly monsters"¦ Oh, yeah, of course they have some green goo ejaculated from ears when they cry, and, of course, they prefer to eat using eyes, not mouth, but they so adorable! So, you have ever intent to pass them to official for some cruel test, please, don't do it! Although, the TV show has gained mostly negative receptions from critics, it worth watching for many reasons. First of all it was created by legendary Dan Fogelman, and all the critics negative reviews are just a result of high expectations for these series. The second reason is the ensemble cast: the star of Entourage, Modern Family, Still Standing and ER - Jami Gertz looks natural in the extraterrestrial surrounding of Ningning Deng, Tracy Weisert and Mobin Khan.
