Default NBC's Revolution - Wishful Thinking or Practical Joke?

I was watching American Ninja Warrior on channel 5 tonight (totally stoked because I've been missing Ninja Warrior since we dropped satellite for OTA) and caught a quick preview of a new fall miniseries on NBC. Go to about 2:28:


And I saw this:



I don't know much about the writers on this project - are they completely delusional or having a good joke? Not that it matters. Amazing that the urinal is still standing after what is supposed to be 15 years of the earth being reclaimed by vegetation.

2012 World series champions and this show is coming out next year? How stupid can the writers be? At least make it 2013 World series champions , which will be a year after the show is cancelled.

Just based on the preview, I don't think the show takes place that far into the future.

I'm thinking the Head Writer for this show is a White Sox fan with a wicked sense of humor.

Abrams and Favreau are both from New York, and Kripke is from Ohio. So maybe it was him. Favreau did live in Chicago for a while, though.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

I'd rather watch violent criminals being forced to watch Whitney as some form of cruel and unusual punishment.
