On what seems to be a day like any other, everyone on Earth blacks out at the same moment for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. They also have a vision of where they will be or what they are doing some six months into the future, on April 29, 2010. For FBI Agent Mark Benford, the vision is disturbing: he sees himself working on this case, drinking again and with someone at the FBI building out to kill him. Mark's wife, a surgeon, sees herself in a relationship with another man, apparently someone she doesn't know yet. Mark's partner, Agent Demetri Noh has no vision at all and believes that can only mean one thing. As they begin to investigate the phenomena, the FBI come across startling videotape showing that at least one person didn't black out.
Did You Know?
When Benford and Noh are on a stakeout early in the first episode, a billboard can be seen in the background advertising "Oceanic Airlines", the fictional airline whose Flight 815 crashed on the island in the TV series Lost
(2004). Show stars Sonya Walger
and Dominic Monaghan
previously co-starred on "Lost". See more
During the meeting at the FBI headquarters, it's mentioned that Air Force Two had gone down and that the VP was on-board. Any aircraft carrying the VP has the call sign Air Force Two, and the only time an aircraft carries the call sign is when the VP is on-board. So stating he was on-board is redundant, and FBI agents would almost certainly know what it meant to say Air Force Two had crashed and wouldn't need to expand on it. See more
