'FlashForward' - 'The Garden of Forking Paths' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 23rd 2010 11:25AM
(S01E17) This show just keeps twisting and turning. Every time I think we've found a path to walk along for awhile, it ends, forks and twists back around so much that we don't even know if we're going in the same direction.

'FlashForward' Love Scenes Get Awkward for Gabrielle Union's Boyfriend Dwyane Wade (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Mar 25th 2010 9:30AM
Gabrielle Union on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Gabrielle Union admits there are some disadvantages to sharing your work with your boyfriend -- in her case, 6'4" Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade.

As she explained last night on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:06AM ET on ABC), Dwyane was cool with her 'Flash Forward' character being engaged to co-star John Cho... until he visited the set.

"He was like, 'This is awes-- wait you're kissing him, a lot?'"

It only got more uncomfortable when she and Cho filmed a love scene with Dwyane looming nearby. She imitates his reaction. Awk-ward!

Review: FlashForward - A561984

FlashForward: A561984
(S01E10)
I knew FlashForward was headed toward a hiatus, but I didn't expect it to be here so soon. Thankfully, this was one of the best episodes of the season so far, pushing things dramatically forward for most of the characters and the blackout mystery, as well. We also gained more insight, and thus more confusion, about Simon and his motives.

There won't be any new episodes until March 2010, which coincidentally (or more likely, not coincidentally) is when Demetri is supposed to die, according to the Persian woman on the phone. When the show returns, will its internal continuity have jumped forward three months, as well? I have a feeling it will.

I think more may have happened in this hour than has happened in the last seven or eight episodes. Let's dig into it.

Review: FlashForward - The Gift

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 6th 2009 3:00AM
Lee Thompson Young(S01E07) You know, even without Dominic Monaghan appearing (save for one scene), this episode really captured my attention. There was some further development in the blue hand case, but for the most part it was about the people of the cast and how they're dealing with their lives at this point between the blackouts and the time of their visions.

Since the beginning, I've been waiting to find some confirmation as to whether these were inevitable futures, or just possible futures. And every week, I got more and more proof that it just seems like they're racing toward these inevitable destinies. Even the contradicting visions, like Zoey's vision of her wedding with Demetri, and his lack-of-vision left room for interpretation: she was a bit away from him on that beach.

But really, this episode was about Al Gough. We finally got to see the rest of his vision, and it's a doozy. Plus, Fiona showed up in the Los Angeles office, where she and Al meet again ... for the first time.

FlashForward: No More Good Days (series premiere)

FlashForward
(S01E01) Well, that was it. The most eagerly anticipated premiere of the season, if early buzz is any indicator. Is it the next Lost? Is it as good as everyone says it was? It can be. As much as I liked this pilot, though, I can't say that I know for sure how good the show is going to be based on it.

The opening sequence was every bit as epic and awe-inspiring as the opening moments of Lost. Whereas in Lost we had the aftermath of a cataclysmic plane crash on a deserted island, here we had the cataclysmic crash of ... everything! They dropped us right into the moments after the global blackout to immediately show us the impact it would have. It was like the opening of a big budget summer blockbuster.

Here's one show you won't see on The CW this fall

by Bob Sassone, posted May 22nd 2009 3:10PM
I'm a fan of Washington, D.C.-based TV shows, so I'm sorry this show didn't make the cut for this fall's schedule on The CW (I guess the world was screaming for a Melrose Place update instead). It's Body Politic and stars Minka Kelly, Jay Hernandez, Jason Dohring, Gabrielle Union, and Tim Matheson. Thankfully, the internet can let us see some scenes from the pilot.

Just what we need...another network procedural

by Richard Keller, posted Dec 1st 2008 8:29PM

Gabrielle Union may be joing the world of procedurals come next fallCan I say something here that some of you will disagree with? There are way too many procedurals on the air right now. Criminal procedurals, medical procedurals, criminal-medical procedurals...the networks are popping them out faster than Michelle Duggar gives birth. And now, we can add another potential procedural to the ever-growing list.

The new project, being developed for NBC, will star Gabrielle Union (Bring It On) as a detective who must race to save someone's life before it's too late. What's not clear from this description is if this saving will be during each episode or across the entire run of a season. What is clear is former X-Files writer and producer Frank Spotnitz will be working on development of the show for the Peacock network. This is not the first time Spotnitz and Union have worked together. They collaborated on the very short lived Night Stalker series back during the 2005-06 season.

Ugly Betty: Burning Questions

Christian Siriano and Becki Newton

(S02E15) You can add "glamourtunity" and "preg-nasty" to the Ugly Betty lexicon. While this episode gave us some cute moments and clever dialogue, I felt like it was light on plot. Yes, we got Renee's storyline out of the way, but the rest of it was build-up to the season's bigger issues. I'm ready for things to start happening.

Ugly Betty: A Thousand Words by Friday

America Ferrera and Christopher Gorham

(S02E13) It might not have been an official season finale (a faux-nale?), but this week's Ugly Betty could be the last one we see for a very long time. I miss the show already. So many issues are up in the air! What will happen with the Henry-Betty-Gio triangle? Will Wili's baby scheme succeed? Is Ignacio ever going to get another storyline? For now, we'll either have to use our imaginations or content ourselves with the Season One DVD. I've never been big on fanfic, so I'm going with Option B.
