Storyline

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...

don't let it end
28 May 2010 | by silmaril-6See all my reviews

It's a shame if they cancel this show after just one season. It has a lot of potential on long run. Clever and interesting story with ability to last for at least 3 seasons, fine characters and acting (with one exception - although I highly appreciate Joseph Fiennes, I just can't figure out what happened to his acting skills here, he's so artificial, unconvincing and sometimes annoying with his face expressions?!) Not the best show on the Earth (there's no best show on the Earth if you ask me;) but better than many more that last for years. They should give this one better chance, I'm still confused about really big break at the end of 2009, I don't think it did this show any good. Overall 8.5 and I really hope they'll change their mind and let us enjoy at least season 2
