FlashForward' finale: Did advance planning do more harm than good for show?

When ABC first launched FlashForward, the network and producers boasted of having a five-season story arc for the drama about life after an international black-out. Apparently, the plan laid out by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Brannon Braga (24) was so compelling, it ignited a network bidding war among the nets before ABC snatched the project. 'These high-concept shows can be fantastic, but there are a lot of pitfalls, ' ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson told EW back in September. 'The fact that they had done their homework made all the difference.' Did it? Tonight, ABC will air the drama's 22nd and final episode of FlashForward, because the network decided against ordering a second season. After a respectable debut last fall - it averaged 12.5 million viewers - ratings plummeted throughout the season. (It didn't help that the show, like V, went on hiatus over the winter.) Part one of the FlashForward finale on May 20 only averaged 5.3 million - down 28 percent from its season average (7.4 million), so it's not likely that tonight's Part 2 will do any better. Suddenly, all that talk about a five-year plan didn't mean a thing if no one showed up to watch. To Read More Click Here .

'FlashForward': Sonya Walger Dishes on the Finale

With FlashForward's expected cancellation, the fans hoped that the series would wrap up smoothly this Thursday. Unfortunately, that won't be the case. There will be questions left unanswered, we're sure, but do they have to be so many? Actress Sonya Walger told E! Online that she has good and bad news regarding the series finale. These last two episodes leading to the fulfillment of FlashForward will certainly be great, but - yes, there's a but. "There's some closure to it, but there's an awful lot left unexplained," Walger said. She added that in the final episode, most of the mysteries in the pilot will get closure. As for the complete resolution? Nope. Look at it this way, at least FlashForward will keep its audiences thinking. That's always been one of the best things about this show anyway.

'FlashForward' Series Finale Preview: The D-Day

"FlashForward" will finally reach the D-Day, April 29, 2010. While everyone waits to see if their flashforward visions come true, Mark uncovers the date of the next blackout, and Simon, with Demetri, attempts to stop it from happening by breaking into the NLAP mainframe. The season finale, called "Future Shock", will also be the end of the series because ABC decided not to continue the sci-fi due to low rating. It's unknown whether the May 27 episode will provide answer to the show's mystery or not because the network laid the verdict after the episode went into production. However, Jack Davenport who plays Lloyd Simcoe said that it would indeed end in a high note. "Do I think the story could have gone further? Sure. No-one intends to do [just] one season - especially not with a grand concepty show like this. I don't think it will be unsatisfying, but it will not answer all the questions. The producers had to be mindful that they may only get one season, so there are some satisfying wrap-ups," he said. Source & Preview
