Credit the people who work on the NBC show “Revolution” for their attention to detail. “Revolution” is a sci-fi show that takes place in 2027, 15 years after a force takes away the electricity from earth, changing life as we know it.
In the clip featured above, some of the show’s characters are seen walking past an abandoned Wrigley Field in 2027. According to the Chicago Tribune, when the TV show debuted online this spring, the marquee below the sign in front of Wrigley Field called the Cubs the 2012 World Series champions (image on left). However, when the show premiered on Monday night, the marquee had been updated to remove the Cubs World Series reference (image on right).
Earlier this year, the Cubs still had some hopes for a successful season, but now that we’re in September, reality has sunk in and the team has the second-worst record in MLB and is mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.
There must be a lot of Cubs fans in the entertainment industry, because we also saw a commercial for a video game that had them winning the Fall Classic. Cubs fans have already been through so much heartache; there’s no need to tease them even more.
