Season 6, Episode 11 Power Trip
First Aired: January 25, 2005
Since the fall of the Soviet Union, electricity has been an iffy thing in Georgia, and “Power Trip” explains why as it follows the quixotic efforts of a U.S. company to keep the lights on. This story of frustration and outrage caused by the tangled wires is almost funny, except that there's nothing funny about getting stuck in an elevator. Or getting killed rigging wires illegally. The basic problem: Georgians aren't used to capitalism. Now they must pay for electricity.
