It looks like proclaiming the Chicago Cubs "2012 World Series Champions" on a new NBC series was even more science fiction than the beleaguered team could take. A scene from an early version of the network's new sci-fi series, "Revolution" — set 15 years into the future — showed a sign outside of a dilapidated, overgrown Wrigley Field which read, "...
