After the first 2 Episodes this has me Hooked.
Therefore I do hope that ratings in the States hold up well and this doesn't get canceled like so many others...
The Plot is Intriguing... A mysterious event causes every single person in the World to simultaneously lose consciousness for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, during which time People appear to see visions of their lives 6 Months in the future, Many people see Newspapers or Calendars and it's established that every single Vision Worldwide takes place on either April 29th or 30th 2010, It's also established that Visions are shared in that if one person was with another in their vision, the other person also reports the same events in their vision... During these 2 minutes and 17 Seconds many Deaths result in Car accidents among other events and leaving the Worldwide Population wondering whether what they saw will actually happen, So a Team of FBI Agents led by Stanford Wedeck (Courtney B. Vance) and spearheaded by Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes)try to find out what happened and why and whether or not it will happen again.
The plot is highly Original based upon a Novel by Sci-Fi Author Robert J. Sawyer and having only seen two episodes I have become totally hooked.
EDIT: Flashforward has been put on hiatus for over 3 MONTHS, due to falling ratings in the U.S - absolutely ridiculous, we all know from previous struggling shows that a long break in the season, really finishes the series off as hardly anybody remembers or cares after a long period of time and very few will return to watch.. Fans of series' do not like to be messed around.
EDIT: FLASHFORWARD AS OF MAY '10 HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY CANCELLED AND WILL NOT BE RETURNING FOR A SECOND SERIES - I can't say I'm surprised as the Series have been on Life support since its forced hiatus in the Winter.
