FlashForward Series Ends with a FlashForward May 28, 2010

The Series Finale of FlashForward was one amazing show.

The FlashForward’s that began the series – mostly – came true didn’t they? The show -mostly- came full circle.

And the biggest surprise is that the show ends on another blackout – with another set of FlashForwards.

The whole thing with Mark Benford fighting like a madman with the terrorists in the FBI building was amazing – esp with Asst. Director Witteck in the washroom with his shotgun – (whereas in his original flash forward he was just in the washroom taking a dump).

What were these new FlashForward’s? Charlie saying – ‘They Found him!’ – was she talking about her dad — who jumped out of  a window as the building blew up.

What was the deal with the kangaroo during the blackout again?

We’ll likely never know now as the series as far as we know hasn’t been picked up by ABC for a second season.

No this isn’t the ending that the show should have had – there are still a tonne of unanswered questions. But make no mistake about it – the series went out with a bang.

FlashForward – Jericho Caused the Blackout?? May 21, 2010

So we finally reach D Day that day that the FlashForward are supposed to have occurred and (some) things are as they should be.

The biggest surprise for us though – is the chase to try and figure out who triggered the blackout.

No where did we have a previous hint that it was Jericho – but it kinda/sorta makes sense in the end esp wit the whole President getting killed thing – or does it?

And was Jericho paying Simon and Lloyd?

Guess we’ll have to wait until season two to find out!

This week’s episode of FlashForward had a cool flash back with Gabriel (Dr. Baltar from Battlestar Galactica) – watching retro cartoon:
Roger Ramjet – Hero of Our Nation

That sure was a blast from the past wasn’t it? It’s been a VERY long time since we’ve seen or heard Roger Ramjet anywhere – so I nice tip of the hat from the FlashForward ppl to SciFi geeks.

While you can now buy the an entire deluxe DVD with all the Roger Ramjets episodes at Amazon (Roger Ramjet – Hero of Our Nation (Deluxe Collector’s Edition) .. it’s the intro music that we remember most…

So we finally get caught up to the the flash forward date…has it really been that long?

Amazing how Benford got Janice Hawk to spill the beans on her CIA involvement…how she didn’t end up dead at the end of the show…we don’t know, but she’s got to have a target painted on her head now.

So what’s next? Another blackout??

So the FBI has now finally realized that Simon is suspect zero and a major scum bag.

Huzzah.

And oh yeah, blue hand dude is back and you can’t  escape fate.

Interesting episode but not at the same level of the last two episodes…heck we didn’t even see the double-agent Janis Hawk this time at alll!

WE KNEW IT.

There was no way Janis Hawk would betray her country…

She’s a double agent working for the CIA.  Huzzah!

But how far will she go? Will she kill Mark Benford?

Even though we saw this coming, what an amazing twist. There is so many layers in this show it’s astounding it just gets better every week.

Frost is dead – Dimitry is alive and we’ve got 6 more years worth of Flashforward to watch??!!

What a great episode – but now we see that Frost’s Garden of Forking Paths ends on Dec 12, 2016 – THE END.

Great to See Dr. Baltar as the eccentric – i’m sure we’ll be seeing lots more of him in the weeks ahead

Great episode of FlashFoward this week – Olivia has fallen for Lloyd Simcoe

and

D Gibbons really is a bad man.

But what about the whole new sub-plot with FBI director ‘stan’ helping out to send Aron to Afghanistan because the Vice President asked him to?

That’s a neat twist –that will come back.

FlashForward Janis Hawk is the mole!! WOW wHAT A twist! April 8, 2010

What an amazing twist!!

Who would have ever thought there were two moles in the FBI – and that Janis was one of them — or is she?

Maybe she’s playing us all – then again maybe not.

She did after all identify suspect zero and many other important parts of the case. She was also shot by the same hit squad that went after the rest of the Mosaic team.

Still it was amazing to see Marcie get nabbed as the mole, but first go nuts shooting up the office – only to be stopped by the double agent.

FlashForward – Better Angels – D Gibbons Message to Dmitri in 1991 April 2, 2010

Yet another solid episode that once again shows that the future is not set in stone.

The Somali warlord is dead and that’s now how he saw himself in the future is it?

But at the same time Olivia and Mark are drifting apart – much as that FlashForward predicted – strange..

But at least we now know what the D gibbons is a bad man and that leads to Mark Benford’s death – perhaps.

We also know beyond any doubt that D Gibbons is behind the black outs but who is that dude and how does he know so much about the future?

Another decent week for FlashForward with episode 113 Blowback.

Aaron goes nuts which was kinda neat to see..

Also neat to see Lloyd come into Mark’s house that was just plain weird – but now  they seem to be getting along

And what happened to Dmitri’s gun?

FlashForward Revelation Zero – Simon is Suspect Zero March 18, 2010

So much happened in tonight’s FlashForward episode – Revelation Zero – it’s hard to keep track.

We know now that Simon is at the heart of the whole conspiracy around the black out…

Amazing to see the whole suspect zero footage at the baseball stadium and the call from D Gibbons.

Simon’s whole family thing was neat too…and yeah this episode was all about him — wasn’t it?

So where does the show go from here?  HOw much longer can they string this out?

FlashForward Recap Reminds Us Why This Show is Awesome March 17, 2010

Did you catch the FlashForward – the season so far – recap on ABC last night?

Great stuff – in one hour it captured all the major plotlines of the story so far and succinctly summarized them.

We watched the recap along with someone that hadn’t seen a single episode before – and now she can and is likely hooked too.

Probably a good idea for other shows with long breaks and deep plots to take a similiar tact.

No we don’t know who is behind the Black out – other than it’s D Gibbons.

Looks like FlashForward’s main plot is winding down doesn’t it?

Loyld Simcoe and Olivia were starting to get real cozy – and what the frak was up with Simcoe saying he caused the black out?

We now know conclusively that D Gibbons was behind the whole thing beyond any doubt – how we get to him – isn’t clear.

The whole bit with demetri’s fiance actually realizing her flashforward was dem’s funeral and not their wedding was also cool.

all in all a great episode, but i’m not sure how much is left unknown in this plot.

FlashForward – Bryce goes to Tokyo, Keiko comes to L.A November 19, 2009

FlashForward really sucked tonight.

Mostly it sucked because it was just a character set-up episode.

Bryce chases his vision all the way to Tokyo and finds nothing while Keiko does the same but only in reverse. Sure that was interesting but it didn’t have to be the whole frakking episode.

Let’s hope the next episode (in two weeks) has a bit more action, otherwise this show won’t make it to 2010.

Our choices matter now more than ever…

Ok after last week’s big episode Tracy is back and we find out that she was chased by Jericho – sorta like blackwater i guess.

But how did she get out of Afghanistan? And

Who is Jericho? and how are they related to the black outs?

And what’s up with the rings? Do they offer the wearers immunity from whatever it is that triggers the black outs?

alreadyghosts.com  the blue hand WOW what a fantastic episode.

The future is not written and now we know for sure.

The death of agent Gough – jumping off the building to change the future and save a mom of two boys was just so startling, we’re still in shock.

But that was nothing in comparison to what Aaron saw was it?

Another shocker.

One of the teases in this episode was the AlreadyGhosts.com website where those that don’t have flash forward come. That site doesn’t actually exist it just re-directs to the ABC site – a shame really. ABC could have built a real viral site there for the show – a missed opportunity for sure.

Overall this show is getting better week by week, the twists and turns in this episode made it the best yet – the new revelation that the future is not definite changes everything too.

Flashforward – Who is Suspect zero? How about Simon? October 29, 2009

Interesting episode – Lloyd Simcoe finally realizes who Olivia is and the benford’s start to fall apart.

Real big inclusion is the Simon character and our bet is that he’s suspect zero – the guy in the stadium.

We also think that we was talking to Lloyd – suspect 1 during the blackout.

 

Clearly Lloyd is part of the conspiracy – but we knew that – so the only question is which suspect he is and how many suspect in total there actually will be.

Flash Forward – kissing Lesbians, the U.S President and the most awesome episode yet. Gimme some truth baby!! October 23, 2009

The fifth episode of Flash Forward ‘ Gimme Some Truth’ was another awesome episode.

Yes, there is a Lesbian revelation and a Lesbian kiss – ok (that’s the resident Lesbo left: Janis Hawk played by beautiful actress Christine Woods)

Moving beyond that we get to understand how the LA FBI office is tied to the White House in a deeper conspiracy than perhaps even the black out.

On the black out we get more intel into what happened in Africa in 1991

And how about that ending? Chinese Triad mobsters shooting our FBI heroes, and the FBI shooting right back.

flashforwardAnother great episode of FlashForward tonight…the whole letting the Nazi go thing was a little uncomfortable..

BUT

The crows connection was kinda cool. I have not read the Sawyer book, so I don’t know how closely ABC is following along.

AT this stage of the show, i’m hooked so i don’t want to read the book (yet..but I will).
