Surprising, thought provoking, well-worth your time
16 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ABC's new drama Flash Forward is excellent. I have been texting my friends and family on Thursday nights, telling them to start watching this show. It is fast paced, and the drama keeps building. It will make you think about your own future. The surprises keep getting me, and I am hooked for the season. It is a thriller that revolves around a core cast, and each character develops his or her own plot line, and many times those elements tangle with those of the other characters. It just adds to the suspense and gives a real feeling of what's at stake. Every week a new clue is discovered and further obstacles arise. The main premise is what caused the black- outs, and it seems as though a group of people are responsible. It was not a naturally occurring phenomenon. The FBI is front and center in the investigation. Every person in the world has a story to tell--everyone saw a glimpse of the future. It makes you think about destiny and how much of our own futures are up to chance.
