I definitely won’t be doing a week by week of this show, because it’s just too packed full of awesomeness for me to be able to give any kind of justice to the show.
For those of you who haven’t seen the promos (they are everywhere, with good reason) here is the basic premise of the show: Everyone in the world blacked out at the exact same time, for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. And all hell broke loose. As the world picked up the pieces, people started to compare stories of what they saw when they blacked out. It turns out almost everyone had a vision of the same day, six months in the future. For some it was the fulfillment house they’d be dreaming about, or they landed that job they had applied for. For others, it was the end of their marriage. For one main character, he doesn’t have a flash forward, and he is convinced he is going to be dead in six months.
As these stories keep coming out, the main characters watch in horror, or delight, as the futures they saw start to come true. The show is intense and super addicting, and I absolutely love it. Apparently it’s from the LOST creators, and I think I really need to watch that show now too. Anyone else check out FlashForward? What do you think? Do you think that our futures are predetermined, or do we have the ability to change them?
