Flash Forward

I read the synopsis and Oh God!, I hope the episode isn't as bad as it looks.

I had high hopes for this show, I think it has a pretty good premise. But between the stagnant story lines and the fact the show went on hiatus for so long, I'm starting to lose hope this will keep me tuning in. Doesn't seem like ABC is doing anything to promote this. I'm vibing a cancellation. If it does survive, it won't be any more than one more season to wrap up the story - if even we get that.

Um, how were they able to get the "sugar" time stamp that fast.

How do they have Janice in the water and not have her get wetter than that? Such a disappointment.

I agree. Wasted opportunity. I'm glad they didn't cop out with the mole just being that first chick. I'm trying to figure out now if they've ever given any hints to Janice being a traitor earlier on. She was shot by someone outside her building so not exactly sure how that fits.

Holy shit! That was a good ep!

I agree about the "sugar shots" on the video.

All the haters in the FF threads are starting to make this look like the "HEROES" threads.

When is the date they Flashforwarded to? I seem to remember it is only a few months from now. Not enough time for Janice to be that pregnat. Or because of the airing delays are they still months 'in the past'?

I thought it was April but maybe May? Are they even on real time right now because they are supposed to have the flashforward day on actual time.

A really good episode, the best since the spring debut; I liked that there was a second mole but I liked Janice as one of the good guys. I'm interested in how the dynamic works now because of the talk she had with Simon; seems like they are doing another "reset" on the whole show.

They're about a month behind the actual date. The long layoff caused the show to get away from being in sync with the actual dates.

Last week, I think that they noted they were still months from the flash forward since the lady cia was supposed to conceive around the time she was in Africa because that was the timeline for her flash forward.

Is it bad that I don't know character names?

Here's some of the key people
Joseph Fiennes= Mark
John Cho= Demetri
Christine Woods= Janis (the Lesbian)
Sonya Walger= Olivia (Mark's Wife)
Dominic Monaghan= Campos
Zachary Knighthon= Bryce (the Dr. dying of cancer)
Peyton List= Nicole, the hot babysitter. The chick who is always talking to Bryce at the hospital.
Gabrielle Union= Zoey, Demetri's fiancee and a lawyer
Jack Davenport= Simcoe, the British guy who's son was in the hospital and thinks caused the blackout

Usually, I can personally judge how much I like a show by how well I know the names of the characters. I'm still somewhat intrigued by this show, but I'll admit, I don't remember all their names.

This is my view of the characters, though the ones with the asterisk I know the actual character name :

Joseph Fiennes= Main Guy
John Cho= Harold*
Christine Woods= Lesbian
Sonya Walger= Penny*
Dominic Monaghan= Charlie
Zachary Knighthon= dude who needs to bang the other chick at the hospital he always talks to
Peyton List= the hot chick
Gabrielle Union= Gabrielle Union
Jack Davenport= douche*

Re: FlashForward -- "Queen Sacrifice" -- 04/08/10

episode was garbage. even messed up the lesbian water scene. should have been way more rolling around in the water and they shoulda came out completely soaked

keiko and the vatos, bad writing

and the idea of moles on a tv show nowadays leaves a bad taste in my mouth (thanks to 24)

only thing i found interesting is the d gibbons phone tag chess game

i agree the mole thing was a joke, but i did like the surprise that lesbo was an additional mole. there really hasn't been any suggestion at all this season she was a mole.

Not that bad. Yeah, a lot of silly things, but most of them you can expect from this kind of shows.

Yeah, I thought it was alright. I was at least pleased that there was a second mole, since the first one - a character I didn't remember ever seing before and wasn't at all invested in - wasn't really a surprise.

It makes her jaunt with "Charlie" through Canada make a little more sense, i.e. how intent she was in following him and how easily she found him each time he got away.

Even 24 never had 2 moles at once.

I still cannot take Seth MacFarlane seriously on this show. All I hear is Brian's voice when he talks and his reaction to getting shot made me laugh.
