Perigard, Boston Herald) to grab hold of you from its first explosive moment. Chaos reigns ater a mysterious event causes everyone in the world to lose consciousness at exactly the same time.

One elite law enforcement team jumps into the investigation, attempting to solve the mystery, as the world's population wrestles with the choice of whether to embrace the fate they've seen or fight to change the future. Relive every brilliant twist of FlashForward's first ten episodes, and prepare yourself for what's to come in the second half of Season One. Who is D. Gibbons?

Plus, dig even deeper with never before seen bonus features and an exclusive sneak peek at the next chapter, only available on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up from the author of the original novel July 12, 2010
Format:DVD
So, one reads all the time about authors who have had their work adapted by Hollywood complaining about what a lousy job was done. Well, as the author of the novel Flashforward upon which this TV series is based, let me say that this is NOT one of those cases. Yes, they changed things, but I was consulted by Executive Producer David S. Goyer and Brannon Braga about the changes even before they had secured rights to my book, I served as consultant on every episode (and wrote the 19th episode, "Course Correction"), and I loved the series. The cast was phenomenal, the scripts were mostly excellent, and the whole thing looked fabulous. So many good episodes, but I suppose my favorites are "No More Good Days," "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps," "The Gift," and "The Garden of Forking Paths." Oh, and we got to pull off a television first: after years of Toronto masquerading as Los Angeles, L.A. got to stand in for T.O. in the episode "Revelation Zero." How cool is that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Freshman drama deserves a second life! July 12, 2010
Format:DVD
Very few shows start out with such a deep and thought provoking premise. Does seeing and knowing a glimpse of your future, change your actions? or does it cement them? Also, it asks another important question in the sub-text... is a little bit of information ( 2 minutes worth) a potentially dangerous thing? worse than none?

Weaving in some awesome concepts from quantum physics ( without the heavy science-speak), Flash Forward shows how the lives of people are affected and changed, when the world experiences a mysterious "blackout"... during which they see 2 minutes + of their lives, 6 months in the future. Many of them are on courses that are dramatically different than their present.

Did seeing this future, create a chain of events that created this future? Would this future have happened regardless? is it possible to change the future? Are some events so powerful in the course of Life, that they will happen one way or another: what is called " course correction."

the dead come back to life. Were they really dead? Incredible romances are created. Marriages destroyed. Self-sacrifice, and Heroic choices are made, as complex characters both embrace and resist moving into a Future that is happening despite attempts to hold onto a safe and familiar Present.

Woven into this drama is the mystery of What the blackouts were? Who could possibly cause this to happen? And what is the human connection the the logical-rational flow of Time.

This show got a raw deal from the networks, a too-long hiatus and poor scheduling. By the middle of the season it had really found its footing and just kept getting better. Worth the watch, worth the purchase, and definitely worth a second chance for more seasons!

5.0 out of 5 stars What did you see? June 18, 2010
Format:DVD
Flashforward was the show to replace LOST. The networks promoted it as such and some of us even believed it could be as good as the television greatness benchmark. I never thought that it would replace LOST, but I had hoped it would fill the void after LOST went into the great beyond. The show from the start was disappointing. It was never bad just not up to the level of greatness that ABC had promoted it as. The story took a little long to develope and the characters themselves lacked depth for far too long. As the show reached it's hiatus though the stories and characters really kicked into gear. The plot twists we expected from the show finally started to appear. As the show entered hiatus it was really on a roll, and when it came back four months later it really amped up the action with amazing episodes. Some of the stories in the show never really interested me. Like Aaron and his dead daughter. It always seemed seperated from the central mythos and Aaron and Tracy themselves always seemed like they should have been left on the cutting room floor. Thankfully this deadly duo didn't recieve alot of screen time throughout the series and I was greatful. The actors themselves did a great job. They never missed a beat. Dominic Monoughan joining the cast after a few episodes was a welcome treat and was the real start of the story picking up.

When Simon is introduced to the plot another side of the story is revealed. You finally start to see who was behind the blackout, but never to my satisfaction do you find out why they did it. There were some clues that Mark obtained that never seemed to pan out to real revelations, but I can assume that they would have been important to the plot had the show continued. The love triangle between Mark, Olivia, and Lloyd is very well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Day Break" dawns for ABC's "FlashForward" June 25, 2010
Format:DVD
ABC has done it again! On October 6, 2009 ABC began the superior, complex, cerebral storyline "FlashForward", then totally trashed this fantastic series with discontinuous plot lines and a sporadic broadcast schedule. The season/series end-er left you with that "Will they ever get off the island" feeling. Whether that applies to "FlashForward", "Lost" or "Gilligans Island", all cause you to invest a lot of time for an incomplete story. At least with "Day Break", the story had closure but still left two 'outs' for possible continuation.

It appears that on May 27, 2010, "FlashForward" blacked out for good....

or has it?????

I think you are talking about Season 0.5 and Season 1.0. The complete series indicates it is every single episode for a show. If you bought Season 0.5 and then buy this, you will have two copies of the first half of the series. Companies have started doing this so they can sell more DVDs and... Read More
