It's not a bad premise. What would happen if all the world's power ceased to exist? No cars, no electricity, no mechanics, no technology, no medicine. Basic necessities (like clean water and food) define life or death and basic amenities (like toilet paper) become a thing in the past. It really is a cool idea: Bows and arrows, horse drawn pick up trucks, the word "Google" being spoken in awed whispers. And it's got some excellent names on its roster: JJ Abrams (Lost, Star Trek 09) and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Cowboys and Aliens). All and all, it looks like it could be a winner. But then again, so did Terra Nova. So while I was generally impressed with the pilot, and really want to see the show do well, I think it needs to step it up a notch if it wants to last more than a Terra Novan season.
