An interesting idea cancelled too soon
3 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I saw this series advertised I thought it looked interesting and so it proved to be. In the opening episode everybody in the world suffered a simultaneous black out during which people saw what they would be doing at the same time several months later. The story follows the activities of the FBI office in Los Angeles as one of their agents saw himself in front of a board detailing an investigation into the cause of the blackouts. There is a fairly tangled web of things seen in the future. The agent's wife saw herself with another man who turns out to be involved with a science project that may have caused it, another man sees himself in Afghanistan with his daughter who he believed had died some time before and some people had no flash forwards, which they take to mean they won't be alive then. Having seen the future they must determine whether this is an unavoidable destiny or can their knowledge allow them to change the future.

In a series with a large cast of characters it is impossible to mention everybody but the most notable cast members are Joseph Fiennes who did a decent job as Agent Mark Benford, Sonya Walger who played his wife Olivia and Jack Davenport who plays scientist Lloyd Simcoe who is apparently destined to end up in bed with Olivia. Over the course of the series my opinion about whether or not the flash forwards will all come true or not changed several times... I won't say whether they all did or not but will say I was satisfied with how that day finally turned out. It is just a shame that the final episode sets us up for a second series which won't happen due to its cancellation meaning that it is unlikely will ever learn the full story about who caused the black out and why.
