Watch what happens when J.J. Abrams turns off the world's power

Watch the first clip from the new NBC series Revolution, which depicts what happens when the lights go out for the entire planet. Cars stop, laptops shut down, babies start crying, and planes fall from the sky. This is really the first non-"swashbuckling bad guys riding around on horses" clip we've seen thus far. And frankly it might be the best bit, as it's kind of scary. Revolution will premiere on Monday, September 17.
