I had an addiction to “Harper’s Island” and then it was over. So, I moved my addiction over to “Jericho.” And, well, it ended…
So, I was looking for a "large ensemble cast facing tough odds together" sort of show and I found it. The new ABC show “Flash Forward” (Thursdays at 7 pm for us in Mountain Standard Time, probably 8 pm for ya’all in the east), started last week with a bang!
The premise of the show is simple. Everyone on earth faints for just over 2 minutes. When they awaken, they realize that they all had visions of the same time period six months from then. They’re frightened by what they see in their futures and are working to find out what happened, why it happened, and how to avoid bad outcomes.
The show focuses an FBI agent and his doctor wife, his Asian American partner (who saw no vision when he was passed out—does that mean no future?) and a female FBI agent who are put together to figure out what the heck happened.
At the end of the first episode, they review public cameras from around the world and in one stadium during a game, they see one lone man walking while everyone else is passed out. The question now is…who and how and why?
