A teenager wins a fully automated dream house in a competition, but soon the computer controlling it begins to take over and everything gets out of control, then Ben the teenager calms down the computer named Pat and everything goes back to normal.
Tucker and Becca are close friends. So close that they live next door to one another with facing second story windows and share a birthday. Tucker is at times an absent minded goof-off while Becca tends to be opinated and in a hurry to grow up. Now in middle school, they find themselves caught in everyday events that turn into comical adventures. Throughout the show, Tucker, Becca, and their friends speak directly to the audience, telling the story as they remember how much more simple everything was when they were five. If they can survive junior high, then their friendship can survive anything. Written by
Watching "Flash Forward" reminded me of the good things about my middle school and high school days, and made me laugh at some of the bad ones. I admired the sensibility of the actors, especially Jewel Staite, whose monologues were always delivered with the honest emotions of a teenager. I was pleasantly surprised to see her in the sci-fi film "Serenity," and for a while I could not remember where I had seen that face and that funny little voice. Then it came to me. It's nice to see that she's done great things after the success of "Flash Forward."
By the way, it's too bad that the show was canceled when it was. While many might bemoan that we missed out on seeing our beloved characters grow, I feel bittersweet about the cancellation of the show, personally. After all, people grow and change. However, we will always remember our good friends from "Flash Forward" as youthful and full of that inquisitive spirit that brings a smile to our face when we remember them.
