I recently caught a couple episodes of it and I thought it was pretty cool. I think should a solar flare ever ever cause a similar occurrence we wouldn't freak out and let society fall like they did, but it's still kinda interesting to see how life might be w/o any power. Though wouldn't they still be able to produce solar power?? I've only seen about half of the show so far so I'm not sure if they ever explained why it wasn't just grid power, but ALL forms of battery power etc. I think about the solar flare back in like January that had a significant effect on the planet by screwing up communication and even caused many flights to be rerouted. And it was only a medium size flare. So what do you guys think of the show? What would you do in a world w/o power? Do any aspects of the show come off as realistic to you? Obviously the country getting broken into a few 'republics' and territories is far fetched. Oh and did they explain yet how Monroe cam to power?, cuz he was just a nobody sargent when the blackout hit.
