Demetri Gets a 20 Year-Old Message on 'FlashForward' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Apr 1st 2010 8:11PM
Demetir Gets a 20 Year-Old Message on 'FlashForward'The TV drama 'FlashForward' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC) is based upon the premise that nearly everyone in the world has simultaneously experienced a sudden loss of consciousness, during which they saw their lives six months into their future. But sometimes, unexpected visions can come from the past as well. On the latest episode of the show, Demetri (John Cho) received a message from a mysterious figure named Dyson Frost. A message that was sent directly to him -- from 20 years in the past.

How FlashForward Got Its Act Together and Put on a Good Show

'FlashForward' Cast
Fans of 'V' should be worrying right about now. With all the promotion ABC has put behind their re-toolings of both 'FlashForward' and 'V,' it's not very encouraging that 'FlashForward returned to even lower numbers than when it left, before quickly slipping even lower to its worst ratings yet.

The real question is why. Did no one have faith that ABC could turn the show around and get it back on track? When did we become so cynical? Plenty of television series have gone through rough starting periods before turning into great shows. I'm not saying 'FlashForward' is suddenly the greatest show on television, but it's vastly improved over its slow and meandering first half.

The two-hour mid-season premiere was epic and fantastic, so I wanted to wait until after the second episode to see how the new 'FlashForward' was going to look. While it was scaled back to the more personal stories again, I again felt that sense of foreboding and tense anticipation that a premise like this should have.

SuspectZero is Revealed on 'FlashForward' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 19th 2010 1:12AM
FlashForward, SuspectZero revealed Hmmm ... just who is behind the blackout on 'FlashForward' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC)? That's the question we've all been wondering since the series premiered last year, and tonight's episode offered a few answers.

Like the fact that Simon is actually SuspectZero – the mysterious character in the baseball stadium who's awake while everyone else blacks out.

Things didn't go so well for Simon tonight, losing that finger and all. At least he got even by cutting off Flosso's blood supply. Take that!

Getting to Know... Evangeline Lilly

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Feb 22nd 2010 6:20PM
'Lost' actress Evangeline Lilly is the stuff of men's dreams. It's no coincidence that the Canadian is cast in a show where her skin shows (amply) for about 60-70 percent of the time. It's hard to believe that this is the woman whose career started off with a bit part in 'Freddy vs. Jason'. Amazing.

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.

Sneak Peek: this Thursday's FlashForward

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 16th 2009 3:05PM
A lot of people have already given up on ABC's FlashForward. I think I understand why. Maybe it's not moving along the way that some viewers want, maybe it's not as compelling as the pilot was, or maybe people have been spoiled by Lost. I get all that, but I'm sticking with it. I think they've made some terrible choices (the Bob Dylan song used in the parking garage shootout was just goofy, and the card game last week was pointless and boring), but there's enough going to hold my interest.

Here's a sneak peek of Thursday's episode, "Believe."

Review: FlashForward - Playing Cards With Coyote

FlashForward: Playing Cards With Coyote(S01E08) You mean I'm going to have to start paying attention to this show? What do they think they are ... Lost or something? Yes, I made sure to mention Lost in my article about FlashForward, and yes I did it because I know it bothers some of you. I'm a bastard that way.

There was a lot of forward motion in a lot of important ways. Last week's Al-dying, Tracy-returning finale was a huge set-up for the next few weeks' worth of story. As expected, Al's death became big news when Celia went public with the letter he'd sent to her (so I guess that means the FBI found her?). But it was Tracy's return that added layers to the complex onion we're trying to peel here.

In the middle of it all, we got to contemplate the significance of what bra Olivia might choose to wear in the future. See, everything's important!

Review: FlashForward - Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 30th 2009 8:31AM
FlashForward: Scary Monsters and Super Creeps(S01E06) Some big revelations this week, both in the flashforwards case, as well as in the situation at the Benford household. In fact, it was at the Benford household that it went down. I was also very proud of the writers for choosing a more challenging route for Mark's character than the tired cliches we've come to expect.

We also got the first encounter between Lloyd Simcoe's son and the Benford daughter, Charlie, and so many things became more clear. A couple more flashforwards to round out the hour and I'm still happy with the series.

And speaking of Charlies, those who've been waiting all season for Dominic Monaghan to finally get down and dirty as a series regular on this little show need wait no loner. His name was even right there in the opening credits under 'Starring.'

Who is the cast member that doesn't want to come back to Lost? (SPOILERS)

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 22nd 2009 11:42AM
PerrineauThere's been plenty of talk the past week about a former cast member of Lost who might not be coming back to the island for the ABC show's last season. By process of elimination and a little detective work, some thought that the person who didn't want to come back to the show was Harold Perrineau, who played Michael. He left the show once, came back later, and then was killed off in a boat explosion. After that he didn't have many nice things to say about the producers or the show.

But you can forget about all that talk, because Perrineau says that he would love to come back to the show for the last season but he hasn't been asked yet. As for all that stuff about not liking his time on the show or holding a grudge against the producers, he says he loved his time on the show, loves the cast, and there are no hard feelings.

FlashForward: Black Swan

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 16th 2009 1:25AM
Dominic Monaghan (FlashForward)(S01E04) Any time we can go back and look at the blackout itself, I'm interested. But the use of an idyllic park scene and Björk's "It's Oh So Quiet" created an almost peaceful panorama -- until a bus drove into the lake, nearly missing someone lying nearby. Throughout the entire opening sequence, though, the scenes of serenity and death melded flawlessly with the song.

It was a great opening reminder of the event that put the entire series into motion, as well as an introduction to Ned. Ned is Dr. Benford's patient this week, who helps her come to terms with her own feelings about the flashforwards. He's also the calmest and most collected guy you could ever meet. But there's a reason for that.

What might be the most important thing for some people still on the fence about this show, Dominic Monaghan (Lost) finally showed up this week. As expected, he's going to be playing a pretty damned important role in the series. His introduction created a relationship with one of our main characters that I absolutely didn't see coming.

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 are the first 18 minutes of FlashForward

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 21st 2009 4:01PM
I really have to remember that it is written out as FlashForward, all together and everything.

FlashForward (I did it!) is probably the show that is getting the most buzz and the most good reviews before it premieres. It's about everyone in the world passing out at the exact same time for 2 minutes or so and seeing visions of their future (at least most people see a vision, some don't). Beyond that we don't know much, which is a good thing. Here's the opening scenes from the first episode, which airs this Thursday on ABC.

'Flash Forward' May Be Flash in the Pan

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Sep 8th 2009 10:37AM


CTV and ABC are promoting their new apocalyptic drama, 'Flash Forward', as the new 'Lost'. Starring Joseph Fiennes from 'Shakespeare in Love', John Cho ('Harold and Kumar', 'Star Trek') and Brian F. O'Byrne ('Million Dollar Baby'), there is certainly no dearth of star power. And the premise - an unexplained, cataclysmic event causes the Earth's entire population to pass out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds - isn't bad either. But there's something about the show that's lacking.

Here's a clip of Dominic Monaghan on FlashForward (I think that's how it should be written)

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 2nd 2009 9:08PM
Dominic Monaghan might be showing up on Lost this season, if you believe the rumors that are going around that old characters will make a return to the show in some way. But he's also going to be a regular on FlashForward, ABC's other mysterious-time show. Here's a short clip that introduces his character.

It's great how he can be so menacing and tough even though he's, um, my height.
