Did You Know?


According to author Robert Sawyer, the ending of season one and the pitch for season two would have almost everyone on earth dying and the protagonists finding a way to use the technology to restore them. A major concern was that the blackout in season one should have been far more of a disaster but as it was things returned to business as usual to quickly. Season two was to have had a survivalist feel similar to that of Lost (2004). See more »


A number of times in this series the FBI headquarters in L.A. is referred to by agents as "the FBI". Janis says it. Stanford says it. A report from the agent over the phone says "a couple of bombs with times have been found at the FBI." The FBI is not a place, it is an agency. The offices of the FBI are located at the Federal Building, not "at the FBI".. See more »

FlashForward: a perfect series screwed by ABC
28 May 2010 | by ApelixSee all my reviews

Like I said...ABC blew everything up. FF would be the best series ever! Nice plot. This is also American people fault! Europe uses to watch this, but American people (the majority) prefers series like Grey's Anatomy or Vampire's Diary instead of this awesome series which makes people thinking for an entire week until the next episode comes out. Anyway, I still got some hope that another TV company get the FF rights and make a 2nd season... Unfortunetely, I believe that even if they make a new season, FF wouldn't achieve such greatness. We saw that they rushed the series (obviously) and there were so many not answered question remaining and that would make the 2nd season a bit different, since "know" we know what happened to Mark, Tracy, Aaron and so many more. Dunno, I'm just disappointed with ABC. I really love FlashForward and I'm really sad because of its end.
