He wants to make a T.V. show where all forms of energy have vanished, anyone else see the inherent problem here?
Honestly? I'd watch the show. Because by "all energy", I would wager that he means that humanity has lost use of all electricity and maybe gasoline. So we suddenly have humans be cavemen again. But knowing the way TV shows, especially Abrams', go these days, there will be a bunch of people who have planes and cars and juice from the first episode on and we'll be pondering how they managed to get them. Still, I'll be watching.
