Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman's life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously - and unbeknownst to her - had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future.

I actually enjoyed watching this TV series. Improvements could be made in areas but overall the show just wasn't being produced to its full potential. Although it had a great plot.

Probably the most unlikable main character I've ever seen.

The idea of the show was fantastic in my eyes. Unfortunately it started out like a fencing movie. Because of the great idea I sticked to it either way. The (bad) action scenes got less after a while but in the end the series was too predictable for me. With that I don't mean the whole plot, but more each scene. If you aren't going to let one of the main actors die, just stop putting them in those 'risky' situations. For me this show got worse and worse till the end and I too am glad it is over :)
The characters were elaborated pretty good and likable though, thats a plus
