This was an intriguing mystery/thriller series that got cancelled way too soon. The series premiere set up an explosive start to the show and asked a lot of questions that were mostly answered during the first season (although there was plenty of scope for another season or two)
It's been a while since I watched it but I remember the different characters were pretty well developed and their different lives and flashforwards intertwining were fun to watch. Josepha Finnes and John Cho carried the show well as the series main characters, leading the investigation for the reasons behind the mass blackout/flashforward.
Bryce and Keiko's star-crossed lovers story will always be my favourite bit of the show though. Bryce turning his life around and truly living for his future is something not often seen on television and it was rewarding to see him live his flashforward in the finale. Why couldn't we have had more of this ABC?!
This show had a lot of potential, but the creator of the show (same guy as Heroes) and the network had creative differences and it resulted in a decent premiss being executed with many flaws in the plot. The glaring flaw was that they somehow could not locate these gigantic towers despite having all kinds of high tech knowledge. Its a selective blindness to reality that plagues a lot of sci-fi shows where we are supposed to pretend that the characters are very smart and capable except for the parts where they are amazingly stupid. Its called bad writing. It was cool for an episode of two though.
A suspenseful 1 Season drama that keeps you on the edge of your seat. When it is done you will wish you had more to go on but as the story progressed you realize that this show will not make much sense to continue past 1 season.
Love the whole idea behind the show, that you get these glimpses into the future, and then it's all about figuring out what the hell happened and how to, if it's possible, to change it! I was so sorry that it had to end after one season though..
A post-Lost drama that tried to win over that same audience. FlashForward over-exceeded its premise and wasn't able to live up to be entirely interesting or entertaining. It quickly became too complex.
