Did You Know?


The title for this episode come from the "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" written in 1972 by songwriter Bobby Russell and was sung by Vicki Lawrence. See more »


Alec in Atlanta has a portable radio to talk to Monroe in Philadelphia, who uses a base station. Portable radios only have a range of a few miles (less inside a building such as where Alec was), and depending upon the antenna and terrain base stations only have a range of under 100 miles. In order for him to talk to Monroe, his radio would have to work like a cellphone and go through a network of towers. Since there was no power between Philadelphia and Atlanta and they are about 760 miles apart, it would be impossible for the two to communicate as was shown. See more »

Cant FIND it, cant WATCH it
22 April 2013 | by atlantis1960See all my reviews

This episode first aired during the Boston marathon airing. Anyone setting their CVR's to record the show was greeted with the horror of the Boston bombing.

Every since, its been a chase-tail trying to see this episode. Not being able to see it tosses the entire show into the gutter, because I for one, insist on watching episodes in order.

You cant see the show on NBC, Youtube, or any other else place I've tried to see the show.

They wont even post the episode the episode on Direct TV. They just hold on to the same old episodes everyones seen since the dawn of time.

Good luck if you find the episode "Night the lights went off in Georgia". I for one, am done looking and waiting for it, and that means Good Bye REVOLUTION.

It WAS good there, for a while.
