I was also disappointed it it. I missed the first 10 minutes & was surprised to see the whole blackout & 14-15 years had passed before I tuned in.
I would have liked to see the first episode cover that more extensively. Shoot, I didn't see any of it at all!
There were many other things that bothered me logistically too.
If they the writers thought this out they sure didn't do a very good job of explaining things.
Also there were way too many stereotypical situations that all resolved exactly like every other show.
Depending on what shows this is up against, I will give it another episode or 2 before giving up. However, if it's up against something I don't want to miss, it's over for me.
My tapes get too full as it is.
