The pilot episode and the overall concept alone has got me hooked.
28 September 2009 | by johnnymacbestSee all my reviews

Wow. Who would've thought that in the history of TV, a show such as Flash-Forward, a sci-fi show of all things TV, knocks "Survivor" off the top spot in the ratings!! Amazing. People are finally getting a show that clicks with viewers amidst the sea of chaos of soulless Reality/Gameshow crap of today's airwaves with such an impact of drama and mystery-tinged bravado with exceptionally good acting performances from Joseph Fiennes and Courtney B. Vance. David S Goyer of BB and The Dark Knight lens his pen to ensure that the series is both epic and captivating and it's because of this that I'm hooked. The female leads are not bad either but could use a bit of polish that's bound to improve in future episodes. But on top of all this is the show's concept which is really cool and has me anxious to see the next episode. Some may complain about the slow build up but I'm glad for it because it lets the audience become acquainted with the characters and their experiences during a worldwide cataclysmic event and the plot moves at a steady pace without leaving too much out of the main story. It's a little rough around the edges but I say here's to ABC for delivering a intriguing and exciting piece of TV that has yet to reveal itself in a grand and spectacular fashion.
