Check the clip below to catch a glimpse at Revolution‘s first episode, which features analog weapons in action, a spooky flooded Chicago, a plucky girl with a boy’s name, and Giancarlo Esposito being Giancarlo Esposito.

Here’s hoping our electronics will last until Revolution premieres Monday, September 19.
