FlashForward is a new ABC sow whose first episode aired last Thursday. Actually, this show is the only one this new TV season that looks interesting, at least to me, and I was therefore interested in checking it out. You can watch it on ABC.com to judge for yourselves, but I thought it was great.
The premise of the show, which is based on a book by Robert J. Sawyer is really neat: the whole world blacks out at the same time for two minutes and seventeen seconds, and during that time they all experience a flashforward where they see themselves six months from then. The things some characters see in their future are good, but in some other cases, well… not so much.
Does this sound interesting? I thought this first episode was very well written, and I was glued to my screen for the forty-three minutes it lasted. I am interested in the characters, what they have seen, and how they are either going to fight to get there or to prevent it from happening. So check it out, because I think you will like it!
