I remember watching the FlashForward pilot last summer and I was really psyched by the show back then. Somewhere along the way I guess people starting getting less excited, and the show that was sort of meant to take up Lost's crown was unfortunately canceled. I'm kind of sad about that, because I think the premise of the show had a lot of promise. The entire series was released on DVD today (August 31) and if you're a fan of the show, you should definitely check it out. We have videos below containing some of the bonus features from the DVD set, including some bloopers, some mini documentaries and a few deleted scenes. To Read More Click here .
'FlashForward' may have been discarded by ABC, but that hasn't stopped fans from aggressively campaigning for another network to pick up the series. It's worked before for other shows and according to TVOverMind, Starz might be the savior fans are hoping for. A fan posted on the Save FlashForward! Facebook fanpage that they were told by a Starz's representative that the network is aggressively looking into picking up the series. To prove their dedication to the series, 'FlashForward' fans have staged blackouts in front of ABC offices. The series starred Joseph Fiennes (right) as an FBI agent looking into the cause of a worldwide blackout that showed citizens a glimpse into their future. The series debuted to strong ratings, 12.47 million viewers, but fizzled as the season progressed. The series finale on ABC was seen by less than 5 million people. 'FlashForward' received favorable initial reviews, but suffered from a long hiatus and behind-the-scenes changes that saw a variety of players coming and going. In October 2009, Marc Guggenheim left the series, prompting co-creator and executive producer David S. Goyer to step in and replace him. However, Goyer didn't stick around long and departed in February 2010. Goyer remained involved with the series, but his wife, Jessika, Lisa Zwerling and Timothy J. Lea acted as showrunners for the remainder of the season. Starz recently canceled critical darling 'Party Down' because the show never attracted a large audience. Many argued that's because many viewers don't subscribe to Starz, so how would 'FlashForward' find and build an audience on the cable network? 'FlashForward' ended with another blackout, leaving audiences with a cliffhanger. Will Starz give them the resolution they're hoping for? Time will tell. Source Here
A couple of weeks ago we reported on a worldwide protest organized by fans of the canceled show Flash Forward. The protest had been staged to bring attention to the number of fans out there who want a second season of the show in order to tie up all the loose ends left behind. Well, as has been proved time and time again, determined fans can become well organized and it seems that the events on June 10th was only the start. For a quick catch-up, fans of the show âblacked outâ for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, mirroring the events of the first episode where the whole world âflashesâ forwardâ and sees their future. Check out the video below to get an idea how popular, fun and worldwide the event actually was! To Read More Click Here .
Before ratings tanked, FlashForward had planned to follow through on its pilot prophecy of killing off FBI agent Demetri Noh (John Cho), reveals Gabrielle Union, who played Demetri's fiance, attorney Zoey Andata. "Then I was supposed to avenge his death in Season 2 by representing defendants against the FBI whom I blamed for his death," Union says. But John's popularity, fueled by the success of his role as Sulu in the big-screen Star Trek, led the writers to alter his fate, thus limiting Zoey's storyline to the point that she wasn't even included in the series finale. "Certain storylines got shortchanged," shrugs Union, who blames the show's cancellation on the difficulty of trying "to sell quantum physics when you have the Olympics going on."

A fictional global blackout changed many people's fates on FlashForward, and now fans of the ABC drama are hoping a series of blackouts will help change the canceled show's fate as well. Weeks after ABC failed to renew the ratings-challenged freshman drama, fans are organizing massive staged blackouts to take place in front of ABC offices in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and several other major cities on June 10. "On October 6, 2009, the whole world blacked out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, at the start of what promised to be ABC's new hit show, FlashForward," the "Save FlashForward" website says. "On June 10th, there will be another blackout, this time to change fate." In addition to the staged blackouts, fans have begun sending calendars with the date April 29th circled (the date of the flash-forwards and of the second global blackout), friendship bracelets like the one Charlie gave her father, Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes), and letters to ABC President Stephen McPherson. The staged blackouts and mailings mirror previous fan efforts to save cult series. In 2008, Jericho fans sent peanuts CBS executives, persuading them to give the show a short second season. Last year, Chuck viewers locked in a Season 3 renewal by flocking to series advertiser Subway as part of the "Finale and a Footlong" campaign. Read More @ TVGUIDE
ven though FlashForward is no longer in Joseph Fiennes' future, the actor still has a trick up his sleeve - as Merlin. According to Variety, the 40-year-old star will be portraying the legendary wizard on a new drama series known as Camelot. Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Mark Benford? Joining him on the show is French actress Eva Green, known for her portrayal in the James Bond film Casino Royale. She will be portraying the sorceress Morgana, which is her first television role. Camelot will premiere on the Starz network, with filming beginning later this month in Ireland. Joining the two leads on the show are Jamie Campbell Bower and Tamsin Egerton, playing Arthur and Guinevere. It's obvious that Camelot is no FlashForward, but it's an interesting career move for Joseph Fiennes nevertheless. He's already done action and suspense with the ABC series, but is best known for his more dramatic roles. He simply maintains the diversity in the parts he chooses, from those in Shakespeare in Love to Enemy at the Gates. To Read More Click Here .
If you're like me, you really enjoyed FlashForward. The show took a while to get its legs, but once it did, it was fantastic. The entire second half of the season was absolutely fantastic, and I was disappointed when it was cancelled. Though it got to finish out its first season, the finale left me wanting more - after all, it ended on the cliffhanger of another flashforward. Fans were also left wondering about Mark Benford's survival after a giant explosion ripped through the FBI office just moments after everyone woke up from the flashforward. Mark didn't seem to have much of a chance, but knowing FlashForward, he probably parachuted out or something. To Read More Click Here .
There wasn't much competition for " So You Think You Can Dance 's" seventh season premiere, which handily won Fox the ratings war Thursday night with okay numbers. A slew of reruns (including a strong episode of " The Mentalist ") went up against the reality show, in addition to the series cliffhanger finale of ABC's " FlashForward ," which pulled in lower ratings than the previous week's penultimate episode. NBC's " 100 Questions " wasn't noticed by even less, sandwiched between sitcom reruns. FOX averaged 8.2 million viewers and a 5.0 rating/9 share in households for the night. Next came CBS with 7.5 million and a 4.9/9, then ABC (3.8 million, 2.6/5), NBC (2.7 million, 1.8/3) and The CW (1.6 million, 1.0/2). FOX also took the 18-49 demo with a 3.0 rating, far ahead of the distant second-place CBS, which had a 1.6. NBC had a 1.1, ABC a 1.0 and The CW trailed with a 0.6. To Read More Click Here .
Season finales provided a lot of healthy closure this week, at least according to our shrink Mitzi Cohen-McGinty, Ph.D. She says that The Biggest Loser is not just about how we look on the outside. She praised Glee for showing us that there is no "right" when it comes to the relationship between a child and the mother who gave her up for adoption. She thinks Jack and Chloe are totally 24's most codependent coworkers, so it's good that they've decided to spend some time apart. And finally, according to Dr. Cohen-McGinty, Lost's season finale is just a metaphor for the journey to self-actualization that we all must take - except, you know, while we're still truckin' on this mortal coil - and preferably from the couch of her stately Upper West Side salon.
