FlashForward

Posted by Jakester on Friday, November 6, 2009

The show's not bad, and when I'm watching it, it's fine, but I find it's not really holding my interest. I really don't remember any of the names of the characters, and I pretty much don't care about any of them, except maybe for the hot lesbian chick. But that's only because I want to see her make out with another hot chick again.

It does raise some interesting questions about how mutable the future is. I guess the biggest question I have is about whether Claire will still be alive on 30 April or if the universe will compensate for the agent's rather drastic action and she'll still get killed, just by someone or something else.

Oh, the chick's name is Celia, not Claire.

Anyway, something's been bugging me, and I think I hit on it this morning. Right now, the only people actively pursuing the cause of the blackout is this one satellite office of the FBI. Why aren't physicists and other scientists actively pursuing the cause? One would think that scientists other than those directly involved in the cause would be more qualified to search for the cause, since, one presumes based on the discussions we've seen involving Simon and Lloyd Simcoe, that the cause is a side effect (or desired effect) of an experiment of some sort. Also, one would expect that someone other than Mr. Nazi would have noticed the mass crow death.

Wow. I started to watch FlashForward last night around 9:30. The Japanese robotics chick was interesting. The doctor flashbacks were lame. Sure, now I know why he had wanted to end it on the bridge. Didn't care before. Don't care now. So...I was watching, and I decided that Supernatural would be a heluva lot more interesting than FlashForward. It was. That's not a surprise. It's AWESOME.

This show is so scattershot from week to week. I'm totally convinced there's a good show in there trying to get out (see: the one where Al changed the game.) But the two after that episode have been so much worse that it's hard to really get myself involved in it.

So I'm with you, I guess. Not bad, nothing phenomenal, but it presents a ton of interesting questions, and if it can ever fully get it's shit together I think this show could be outstanding.

Ironically enough, the torrent for Thursday's episode is available right now. Freaky.

That's because it's been aired overseas already (Australia, I believe).
I haven't gotten the torrent yet.

It's a pretty good ep actually. Definitely a step up from the past few weeks, though the ending is incredibly telegraphed.

And yeah, it's from Australia. Their last episode of the year too. So no more early torrents. Boo.

Wow, apparently that's the last episode until March. That's kind of the death sentence for a show like this, no?

It wasn't a bad episode, no. I fully expect Benford to put three bullets in Sulu when the time comes.
It'd be cool if cancer/suicide guy bangs the babysitter and ditches Robotics chick, changing their futures.
And now Merry's gone from being a potential bad guy to helping solve the mystery.

I dunno. They show just wants to be too many things and it's not really succeeding. Also, why, in every show that involves both agencies, from the X-files on, does it seem like the FBi are deliberately kept in the dark by the CIA?

I think it's going to be difficult to pick this show up again. Until I saw this thread, I'd completely forgotten it existed.

Heh, yeah, I'll watch again if I happen to think of it in between classes this spring and the 15 better shows that are out there.

Otherwise it's based off a book I read part of yesterday which looks to be a helluva lot better. Simcoe (the British father who can't act) is apparently the lead character, and they flash forward 30 years instead of 6 months.
