      2009 Drama Mystery & Thriller List
      80% 35 Reviews Tomatometer 77% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Residents of Los Angeles go about their day unaware that a mysterious event is about to change their lives. FBI agents Mark Benford and Demetri Noh are in a car chase; Benford's physician wife is in the middle of surgery; and Benford's friend Aaron Stark works on power lines high above the ground. Suddenly, something causes everyone in the world to black out for just over two minutes. During that time, each person sees a series of events in his or her own future -- some good, some bad, some apparently nonexistent. As people begin to piece together their visions on a worldwide website, Mark and Demetri use the information to try to pinpoint the cause of the blackout, and people are still trying to determine whether destiny can be changed, and what effect those changes may have on others.

      Previous Ted Anthony Associated Press "FlashForward" is so deeply unsettling. It masquerades as a locked-room mystery with sci-fi undertones. But in reality, it's a meditation on Americanism - a story that tells Americans they cannot control the outcome. Oct 22, 2019 Full Review Barry Garron Hollywood Reporter Well-cast and full of expensive-looking special effects, "FlashForward" should hook a respectable number of viewers with its combination of surprise and suspense. Oct 22, 2019 Full Review Ed Bark Uncle Barky [I]t's all quite enthralling. A- Oct 22, 2019 Full Review Andrew Anthony Observer (UK) Its continual denial of narrative satisfaction could drive an anorexic to seek comfort in the fridge. May 13, 2019 Full Review Brian Wilson What Culture Despite cancellation, there's enough of value in FlashForward's first season to merit watching it regardless. Oct 23, 2018 Full Review Megan Basham WORLD Intriguing though its premise was, I have to put Flash Forward in the bait-and-switch category. Oct 8, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous Victor S The first 16 episodes were quite entertaining while the mystery of who was behind the global blackout that killed 20 million people had not been revealed. In the final few episodes it was revealed that the President of the United States, through an American paramilitary private contractor: Jericho, was behind the first and second blackout. Turns out, the ruthless murder of dozens of law enforcement officers throughout the series had been committed by fellow Americans, former US military now working for a private company. No explanation of the reason or purpose was provided to the end of the series. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review steve d They are trying so hard to give you the convoluted plotting of Lost they forgot to give you any of their interesting and complex characters. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm still pissed they cancelled it. It was a fantastic show :( Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Tad bit better than ok. more than fine. more than decent. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Why on the earth it was discontinued. it's amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This show is interesting and then it turns bad. They were left with images of the future and then the show became predictable. It only lasted one season and it ended poorly for a finale, but I'm not sure if the ending was planned to be a cliff hanger.
