Revolution 

 September 17, 2012

The debut of a high-concept J.J. Abrams show or anything buzzed about as "the next Lost" definitely doesn't have the cachet it once had (not that the latter ever had much cachet). But NBC obviously has high hopes for Revolution, its upcoming fall drama in which Supernatural's Eric Kripke explores what happens in a world where electricity has inexplicably stopped working, besides the fact that no one has to hear about "the next Lost" ever again. So, the network went ahead and put the whole pilot up on Hulu, so you can watch it right now and get hooked early on its central mystery. Or, you could also watch it right now and be among the first to dismiss it as the second coming of Terra Nova. One of those things, probably.
