After the entire world's population blacks out for approximately 2 minutes and 17 seconds, which in effect causes the entire world to see a glimpse of life 6 months into the future, an elite FBI task force is formed to investigate who/what caused the global blackout, whether the events foreseen were simply flashes or true events of what's to come, and whether or not it could possibly happen again...

Excellent, too bad ABC killed it too early
28 May 2010 | by dmny92See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from it at the beginning, but it turned out to be great. Good story, enough mystery to keep you interested, good performances.

Joseph Fiennes, John Cho and Dominic Monaghan have done a great job, with natural and good emotional acting. It was a pleasure to watch them every second.

One of the best, original shows I've ever watched.

I'm so sorry that ABC killed it after 22 episodes. After Kyle XY, a very promising show is again canceled. I'm glad I watched it, but I wanted more...
