FlashForward -- "Blowback" -- 03/25/10

Flash Foward

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Aaron tries to learn why Jericho is after Tracy; Mark questions Lloyd about a phone conversation that occurred during their flash-forwards; Zoey attempts to change Demetri's fate.


Okay, A FlashForward thread. I know alot of you have probably given up on this show, but I think last week's 2 hour episode was hopefully the start of something good for these final episodes.

When the show is cancelled at the end of this season, this is all I'll remember or care about.

It was alright tonight. I liked that AA Dude going all crazy on everyone.


Shit, If I had a Ratings Box ABC would've scored high off of me Thursday night. 3 straight hour of ABC shows.

I enjoyed tonight. It definitely seems like this is going to be a one and done program. Here's hoping they realize this and start going crazy with plot.

Now this is the show I remember, slow, boring and packed to the gills with redundant exposition.

Oh my God, the gun is missing?!?!?!? What a mindfuck! I was so completely shocked when the evidence guy said it was gone.

I try watching this show, but it just doesn't hold my interest. I'm not even involved enough to remember any character's names. On that note, Epic Beard Dad goes and blabs about his daughter when he knows people are after her? And the people that are after her have to wait until he blabs before looking in his house? There a happy medium between ridiculous and predictable, and this show just swings between the extremes.

I'm trying to figure out what Demetri and Mark will and won't do in order to avert Demetri's death.

Do: Travel to a foreign country against direct orders, publicly kidnap a diplomat, then use her as a hostage in a police standoff.
Don't: Destroy the gun that will kill Demetri without the proper paperwork.

It was the obvious the gun would end up missing. But still, you destroy the specific gun that is supposed to kill you as if your killer won't just use another gun and do the exact same thing?

Too funny!

It's sad but I knew Braga would infect this show with his foul mediocrity sooner or later. It's really too bad because this show has an interesting premise.

Don't get too attached...
ABC’s FlashForward fell 5% from last week to a series low 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

I thought it continued from last week but it looks like it's too late to save the show; I'll keep watching until it ends though. And the fact that the other dude from the shootout has been "missing" obviously points to him as the mole.

Yeah, he might have to take the drastic step of wearing a bullet-proof vest that day. Or stay at home.

So let me get this straight: Mark's wife's flash-forward was simply walking to the balcony and seeing that dude on the couch, but the dude's flash-forward involves waking up with her, walking over to some weird mirror thing, going downstairs, having some long-ass phone conversation with Mark, then sit silently by the fireplace so she can then see him from the balcony?

I could be wrong but I think the flashes are being fed to us(Audience) a little at a time. They were out for 2 minutes and some change so chances are there was more to them.

I think it's because it was only a flash forward to April 29th that lasted for 2 minutes. So if you were sleeping for 1:30, you'd only have a 30 second flash forward. That's how I understood it when they explained it earlier on.

I just think it is funny how the writers keep adding more stuff to them. I can see it in certain cases, people keep things secret. But in the beginning, everyone was telling what happened to them and it seems like everyone left stuff out that is only conveniently coming out now.

Have they explained why the Asian dude has the first name "Demetri"?
