ONE PART ONE)
On February 23, 2010, the first ten episodes of the epic new drama
“Flashforward” come to DVD from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.
SYNOPSIS: Chaos reigns in Los Angeles after a mysterious event causes everyone in the world to lose consciousness at exactly the same
moment. Was it an act of nature? Something man-made gone wrong, or something even more
sinister? Whatever it was, every person on Earth blacks out for two minutes and seventeen seconds
and sees a series of events on April 29, 2010 at 10:00 p.m., Pacific Time – exactly six months in
their future. For some the future will be joyous and hopeful; for others, shockingly unexpected; and
for a few, it simply doesn’t seem to exist. Knowing their fate will alter each person’s life in one way or another and poses the questions: Can
destiny be changed? And by changing just one destiny, what effect would that have on those of
others? Viewers will be able to catch up on the heart-pounding first ten episodes of ABC’s thrilling
series “FlashForward” before it resumes airing March 18, 2010.
REVIEW: From creators Brannon Braga and
no other than David Goyer (Dark Night Screenplay). ABC debuted
last Fall the well developed and intriguing new drama Flash Forward. A
series that follows a similar formula of keeping the audience
guessing like "Lost" and "Day Break". ABC is
releasing the first 10 episodes of the show as a part one of its
first season. For me, this was a good move since it gave the
opportunity to found out what exactly the show was about.
If you are reading this review,
it means that probably you know what is the show about. So I'm
going to go directly to the beans. The first two episodes are
the best episodes of Flash Forward's young season. These two
episodes provided so much good material that I was hook on the
series. These episodes are so well crafted, acted and intriguing,
that it will get audiences thinking. The same can not be said
about episodes three and four, which I found to be kind slow. Fortunately
the following episodes save the first part of this first season.
Like it was expected there is not a big season one part one
finally. Making the end of the tenth episode be like the ending
of any regular episode.
Overall this is a release for
people who want to know or be ready for the second part of this
outstanding series. I was one of those. I know consider myself
ready to the seconds part beginning this March 18. If you are
not planning to watch the second part series religiously every
week, I suggest that you wait for the release of the full season
later this year.
