I thought I had read a thread on this TV show but I guess old age is creeping up on me since I can't find it. I watched my first episode last night and while I find the premise interesting I am undecided about the show since as you might imagine there are a lot of gaps to be filled in since I entered in the middle. I have one question in particular and even checking the show's site I haven't found the answer so maybe one of our readers can enlighten me. It appears to me that an event such as an EMP has wiped out the use of electricity (according to the website 15 years previously) in the world. Is there a reason that the survivors can't rewind some motors and generators to at least start back on the road to recovery or is this a recurring phenomenon?
