    FlashForward- ABC

    As of right now it is only the first half of the first show but it looks like this one will be a keeper for ABC. I could really have done without the computer generated effects in the scenes after the blackout FWIW....

    Flashforward

    Anyone else watching right now? Supposed to be ABC's answer to Lost ending next May. Hopefully it catches on, I'm going to go through Lost withdrawal in 2011 if not. Everyone in the world blacks out in the world at the exact same time, and vividly hallucinates their future. When everyone wakes up, cars are overturned... chaos ensues. Seems pretty interesting so far.

    Terrific premiere of an intriguing and great new series, I hope. I DVR'ed it tonight, came back home and watched it, and I am instantly hooked.

    So for all you lost fans... Did you notice when the two cops were sitting in their car during the stakeout at the beginning. Above them was a billboard for Oceanic Airlines.

    Re: FlashForward- ABC

    I somewhat liked the show. But, then I am looking for something to scratch the post-Lost itch...

    Did anyone else notice how they kept showing and talking about numbers? Typical of Lost!

    Re: FlashForward- ABC

    I thought it was pretty good. It's too early to say it's Lost good, but I'll watch it again next week.

    I think the problem with this show will be what happens after next April. I'm not sure how they are going to be able to do multiple seasons of this.

    I was not sure how they would do multiple seasons of lost at the beginning.

    Seems to be the bulk of the chatter around the internet; how on earth could they stretch this story out to multiple seasons? Too many hardcore Lost fans expecting this to be Lost 2.0, when really they're trying to build upon Lost's success and create a show more palatable for the casual viewer who doesn't want to have to invest in a serialized show -- yet keep the story satisfying enough for the philosophy nerds and theoretical physicists among us.

    I've heard a little of where the FlashForward story could go, but at this point, it still sounds like enough to fill a season with, nothing more. I imagine there will be a game changer midway through the season designed to prolong the series if the ratings are there, ala Lost's hatch.

    Re: FlashForward- ABC

    I think it has potential. I agree, the CGI was corny in parts and whenever John Cho's character was trying to be the "bad cop" I didn't buy it at all. It is set up very nicely for a 16 episode arc that they can cut off if the ratings aren't there.

    I watched this last night and liked it. Wow, I can barely ever remember saying that about a drama on network TV before. A decent drama with an interesting concept that's not on cable? Nice.

    I hope they give John Cho's character more depth that just being "loud and angry cop man" though.

    Pretty hard to miss. They definitely wanted us to see it.

    It was a good show, and actually I hope they do have a good arc instead of milking it hard.
