On October 6, everyone in the world blacks out for two minutes and 17 seconds, and experiences a glimpse of their future on April 29, 2010.   Some see nothing.   Special Agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) heads a special investigation into the blackout called Mosaic based on a vision he had of gunmen coming to the Los Angeles FBI building for what he knows.  His partner, Demetri Noh (John Cho), saw blackness and learns he will be murdered on March 15, 2010.   FLASH FORWARD follows the lives of many people as they try to deal with what could be the future while others want to find out what caused it.

 

FLASH FORWARD poses interesting questions about whether we can change our fates if we knew what was going to happen in the future.   The people who see nothing decide to find death in their own ways while one character’s sacrifice may prove everything isn’t written in stone when it comes to the future.   The show is sometimes a little too much like a soap opera.   FLASH FORWARD is at its strongest when the show focuses on the investigation into the blackout even though the vision that Mark’s AA sponsor had proves to be one of the interesting storylines outside of the investigation.    Some say the series is looking to find itself and I hope the second half of the season makes up for any missteps the show had in the first ten episodes.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The extras include a featurette on the effects for the pilot episode of FLASH FORWARD, the beginning of episode 11, and a preview of the second half of season one.   A coupon is included in the case where you will have a chance to download a coupon which will take money off of the full season one release of the series in August.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  FLASH FORWARD has it’s flaws, but the first half of the first season gives fans and new people a chance to catch up on the show before the second half of the season starts on March 18th.
