In a few hours, I’ll be ready to flash forward when the show begins over here and I could not be more excited for it. It’s being branded as “the next Lost” and certainly contains enough similar elements to Lost, and even some former stars and a great cast.
John Cho (well known for minor American Pie appearances and Harold & Kumar films) is an actor who I hadn’t known was in previously and is great in his appearances. Sonya Walger is also appearing as a main character which is cool.
The basic story of FlashFכward is that the whole world blacks out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds during which time they see glimpses of their future, April 29th 2010 to be exact and some characters experience good futures that they don’t want to mess up, some experience horrible futures that they will try and circumvent and some seem to have no future at all and fear they will wind up dead.
It’s going to be a fantastic show, so get ready to Flash Forward at 9pm tonight, Channel 5!
