Flash Forward


We tuned in last night for the premiere of ABC's new show Flash Forward. The previews for it had been riveting all week, and after hearing that it came from the same people that did Lost, I was intrigued.

The show's basic premise is this: Everyone on the planet blacks out at the same time, for exactly two minutes and fifteen seconds. Obviously, the worldwide blackout causes mass confusion, hysteria and destruction. However, as people wake back up, they realize that instead of blacking out, everyone has seen a glimpse of their future, six months ahead. The question is, what caused the blackout, and is that future set in stone?


The elements for a good show are there. The cast seems pretty solid, with Joseph Fiennes, Sonya Walger and Courtney B. Vance as some of the main characters. The chemistry between the actors seemed to be decent for a series premiere, and typically that only improves as time goes on. It took me a minute to realize that Olivia (Walger) was Desmond's forever love Penny, from Lost. In fact, in the preview for next week's episode, I saw good old Charlie (one of my favorite characters from Lost.) Looks like this show has more in common with Lost than just the producers.

The premise is interesting, enough so that I will be tuning in next week. I'm not getting my hopes up yet though. I hesitate to really get into a show until the second or third season, as too many of my favorite shows have been canceled after the first lackluster season has gone by. However, ABC knows that Lost is entering its final season, and I am sure they are looking for the right show to keep all of the viewership that Lost brings them. Perhaps Flash Forward is the right pick. Only time will tell!

I am not a LOST fan, but this looks very interesting.

Thanks for this review. I've been dreading the end of LOST (I'm hooked) so maybe this is the answer. I missed it last night but through the magic of satellite I can see it repeated tonight.

I watched it last night and I'm hooked. Love Lost even though I always end up saying the same thing at the end of each episode "What the heck just happened?" lol.

Ah, the magic of satellite, it is a beautiful thing, is it not? Hope you girls all enjoy the show like I did! :-)
