He wants to make a T.V. show where all forms of energy have vanished, anyone else see the inherent problem here?

outside of the idea that all forms of energy suddenly vanishing... nah, I don't see a problem with it at all... 
 
:P

Someone needs to sit him down and explain that if all forms of energy vanished the entire universe would vanish with it

I am sure multiple people now have told him how stupid this TV idea is... someone would have had to by now.

The statement probably wasn't meant to be taken literally...

@King Saturn: Prior to the current popularity of reality TV I would've been sure someone in Hollywood would be smart enough to see the problem but now I'm not so sure

Forget about the fact that energy can't "vanish" or that humans are made of energy too, what we really need to ask ourselves is will J.J Abrams be using lens flare? THAT is the big question.

A show about nothing?

so basically it would be 30 minutes of white screen I think what he means is energy resources though like electricity,solar gas etc

@spystreak: That's probably it. Abrams bases too many of his productions on some form of realism.

Edit: Cut that; he's more Modernist.

The last episode of Lost confused me.

It would be pretty awesome. Picture a black screen with commercial breaks.

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.

I never liked chemistry.
