Interesting. But, it's about electricity, or the lack of it, and not viral warfare. Also, electricity disappearing makes no sense. Otherwise, the background shots and overhead views of the after-world are pretty good.

I thought solar flares can possibly do this if one happens to shoot up at Earth at the right time or something. Please correct me if I'm wrong, though. I must be sure of this sort of thing.

Highly possible, messes with the magnetism which is what all our technology relies on, or if the poles were to switch ( witch they will at some point )

Yes, but they have the key to get the power back? Now, I'm no expert on that show's back story, but on the surface it seems fanciful.

I love how this preview had "Heart of Courage" by Two Steps From Hell. =)

The first half was interesting and it reminded me of contagion, the second half was unoriginal. It almost got into like gun-kata type stuff.

Can't decide to like it or dislike it. Most likely wont get into it though...

I no longer feel the need to watch the series. Seems the preview gave away a lot. I'm probably wrong though.

This does reminded me a lot of DP at first but as I thought it about it more it reminded me less and less and I do feel like it gave away half of the content of the first few episodes in the preview.

Techno-logically inconsistent. Mistborn this is not.
