Flash Forward
« on: September 14, 2009, 09:33:09 PM »
Looks like ABC is trying to find a show to fill the void that will be left from no more LOST episodes after May 2010. Seems like this might be the one...

***SPOILER WARNING***
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ WHAT THE SHOW IS ABOUT, STOP HERE!!! Of course, if you don't want to know what it's about, you might not be able to tell if you want to watch it, LOL!

What is Flash Forward about? In a nutshell, it's the chaos that ensues after everyone on the planet blacks out for two minutes and seventeen seconds. But that's not entirely true. First, about 40 million or so poor souls don't survive the global event; airplanes fall from the sky, cars collide, people fall down stairs, drown, etc. as they lose consciousness during whatever they're doing at that moment. Second, the effect isn't so much a blackout but a Lost-appropriate flash forward in time as each of the survivors experiences a snippet from their own future during that time loss. And not just any moment, but a very specific moment five months from then: 8 pm on April 20th, 2010.

Why do each of them witness that specific moment? That's one of the script's central mysteries, along with what caused the worldwide blackout, whether it was a natural event like an earthquake or whether it was a man-made, terrorist-style attack, and whether the future can be altered.

Sounds like an interesting premise to me... I'll give it a shot.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

So I'm guessing they see the cancellation of their own show?  ;)

We are planning to watch this as well.  Sounds intriguing.  Definitely Lost-like.

Need something to watch obsessively now that HARPER'S ISLAND is over and LOST isn't going to start until February. This should fill the void nicely, so I hope it's good. This and FRINGE should keep me busy now that C.S.I. has turned to crap.

I hope not, this one moves a little fast for my taste, but it's still worth watching at least. It has some good characters and mysteries.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Flashforward has been cancelled by ABC. Which sucks because I liked it more then V and of course that got renewed. Hopefully they are given a chance to make an ending for the show seeing how must of the questions have been answered it seems.

It sucks that they are cancelling this show and I too hope they can wrap some things up.  I am getting so tired of investing time in a show and then it gets cancelled so quickly  >:(   I may stop watching new shows until they are into a 2nd season just to save my sanity  ;)
