'Revolution's' rules: Jon Favreau and Eric Kripke tease the show's big secretAdd to Favorites |
"The laws of physics seem to have changed," says Favreau.
And that's about as close as the pair came to explaining why exactly the power goes off. "Revolution" -- for those of you not in on the conceit -- is about a United States 15 years after the lights go off. Meaning everything from massive nuclear reactors down to the smallest flashlight battery.
"It's about electricity so it's about anything that throws a spark, anything that carries an electric charge," says Kripke. "Everything expands from that -- which means batteries, spark plugs, engines and everything."
So guns -- yes. Laser guns -- no.
"We brought a physicist into the offices and gave him the big secret and vetted it from a scientific point of view," he says. "And his face lit up and he said he never considered it but it is possible."
So there you have it.
