Flash Forward

Interesting and very cool TV show tonight on Five – Flash Forward.

Pretty much – everybody blacks out, but during this time they all get visions of their futures.. and it turns out that they all had visions of the same time and date.
Cue lots of meetings and discussions as to what exactly is going to happen at that time, including the future of the investigation they’re currently undertaking..

I’m not going to hurt my head by thinking about the whole “are they doing this investigation because they saw themselves investigating when they had the flash forward, and if they’d not had the flash forward would they even BE investigating”.. yeah..

Both Tim and I thought it reminded us of Stephen King’s “Cell”, which we both read recently, in which a mobile phone signal is used to turn most of the Earth’s population into mad, flesh-eating zombies.. 😀  Something about the catastrophic outcomes for some of the people, and “no more good days” thing, maybe..

I also love the idea of Suspect Zero, a mysterious guy caught on CCTV, who is unaffected by the blackout!  Bring on the next episode! 🙂
