Have you been watching the show "Revolution"? I see similarities with a near future USA...here's what I see at this point.

[quote:Lady Wolf:MV8xOTk5NjMyXzM0Nzk1NzMwXzRBQzI5ODVC] Watching online trying to get caught up. I'm on episode 5 right now. I think if nothing else...this show really makes people think!! Stop looking to it for it's "entertainment value" and see it instead as a how to! I don't mean that the characters are always doing smart things, or making good decisions when it comes to problem solving. I'm talking about how this show give you a [b][u]VERY[/u][/b] realistic look at human beings and the potential animal that lives in each and every one of us when civilization becomes non-existent! This show does a very good job of portraying some realistic worse case scenarios in a dog eat dog world. It forces us to take a hard look at what we ourselves would or wouldn't be capable of doing if we found ourselves trying to survive with our loved ones in this nightmarish world. As for those of you saying the young girl who plays Charlie needs to toughen up? Keep on watching, because many bad things happen to her and all around her that has made her tough as nails. It would have been unrealistic for her character to automatically be this way prior to all the experiences that causes her character to change. You need to remember, she is just a young girl trying to survive in a world turned upside down. It is only when her family becomes victim to this world that she begins to change and harden into the woman that she needs to be to survive. One other thing that those of you who have given up on the first couple of episodes should know...in future episodes the writers are doing a good job of taking you back in time right after the blackout, i.e. the day of, a few weeks after, a few months after etc. and giving you glimpses into the main character's lives so you can see what has happened to them to shape them into who you're seeing now and how they connect with each other. Don't give up on this show yet. I think it has some staying potential, and even if the network decides to cancel it, in the mean time, you WILL have learned something about what you can expect in such an Orwellian existence.

It's only 2 shows in so far, but...
Power goes out...something we discuss a fair bit here because it could actually happen. Perhaps TPTB believe it will or know it will.
The "bad" Militia leader...looks like Barry O. Is a man of power, but not the ultimate power. Has a way of speaking to people that will make you empathize with him. However, he has a very darkside as well. He works for a real bad dude (Munro). They hate America. Your not even allowed to speak of America, own an American flag, own a firearm, all these things that Americans have always enjoyed...gone...Slavery has been reintroduced. Incarceration without cause.
Now just for a second imagine Sharia law taking hold of the U.S., probably sound like this eh?
Takes place in Illinois.
I'm sure there is more to add, but that's what I have so far.
