FlashForward : Review

About: FlashForward is constructed around a high concept narrative where a mysterious event has caused nearly everyone on the planet to simultaneously lose consciousness for 137 seconds, during which time people see what appears to be a vision of their own life approximately six months in the future: a global "flashforward". A team of Los Angeles FBI agents, led by Stanford Wedeck (Vance) and spearheaded by Mark Benford (Fiennes) and his partner Demetri Noh (Cho), begin the process of determining what happened, why, and whether it will happen again. Benford contributes a unique perspective on the investigation; in his flashforward, he saw the results of six months of investigation that he had done on the flashforward event, and he and his team use those clues to recreate the investigation. read more

Review: FlashForward is a tv series that has only one season, but the episodes last 45 minutes so it is not that small. At the beginning it was supposed to continue for a second season but after the low rates they decided to cancel it, as a result the series finishes with so much anxiety and so many questions unanswered.

The reason I decided to watch this series was a friend of mine who was watching it at the time and was crazy about it, when he described it to me he just had to say that there is a police agent, a sudden even and a vale of mystery so I immediately started watching it.

I will give you not one, not two, but 8 reasons to watch it and they are:

Such a great cast of actors! All of their performances were great, they were passionate, they were real. In this series not only the lead actors were good but the supporting ones were also great, it is the first series that I like so many actors.
In my opinion the key to watch this series or not is the plot, if you like the plot everything else is really good, the story is very strong, it has a lot of suspense, so if you like that type of series there is no way you wont like this one.


  1. You were like "the Lost guy plays there" and i was "but i haven't watch LOST" but you never thought to mention he was also playing at LOTR? tsk tsk Athanasia!

    Anyway, i might give it a chance if i'm in mood.

  2. I loved this series & was absolutely gutted that they havent done a series 2 :(

  3. well if the story is the best part in this series and it ends before it can give an acceptable ending then why watch it ?
    And I have watched many promising series that were suddenly cancelled so I know the feeling of unfulfillment a cliffhanger ending can cause...

  4. yiota: ok i guess you have a point, i was talking to you so i should have mentioned LOTR..

    silvestro: i agree with you, but even with an ending like that it is a series worth watching, the only good thing about an ending like that is that they can not ruine it for you, you create your own ending..

    anyway give it a try it is very good

  5. I loved FlashForward and was really upset when they cancelled it!

  6. @Yiota, athanasia-d: well I have to admit that I hadn't noticed till today that the lost guy played in LOTR... I just didn't watch the secondary hobbits enough to notice him :D

  7. @Silvestro: he was in all 3 movies! he killed a Nazgul with Eowyn! how is that secondary? -.^


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
