J.J. Abrams turns out the lights in extended preview of Revolution

In addition to showing off awesome Zelda tunes, the Olympics are also good for a few other things—namely some brand-new footage from J.J. Abrams' new NBC series Revolution.

We just got our first peek at Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, V) in Abrams and Eric Kripke's (Supernatural) new sci-fi series, and now we have some actual footage of the lovely former castaway, thanks to a new extended preview for the show that aired Monday night. There's also a bit of new action footage sprinkled in with what we've already seen.

The series follows a world in the dark, literally, 15 years after all electrical service goes out. The concept is pretty unique, and here's a bit from the official synopsis to show what will likely be some enduring themes if the show sticks around:

"Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos, "Being Human"), and her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, "Memphis Beat"). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders for a darker purpose, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke, "The Twilight Saga"), a former U.S. Marine living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America."
Check out the new clip below:

What do you think of Revolution? Will you be watching, or do you prefer to stay in the dark?
