'Revolution' (Sept. 17; NBC)

Network TV -- God bless them -- keeps trying unconventional sci-fi sagas. We're guessing execs have learned nothing from "Terra Nova." And "Alcatraz." And everything else since "Lost." And while half of the people we talked to who watched the pilot hated it, the other half loved it. The divisiveness may have to do with the confusing plot: In a post-apocalyptic future, a group of people deal with someone who turned off all technology. Cue lots of jungle life and battling militias. Promising: It's executive-produced by J.J. Abrams. But so was "Alcatraz."
