Free will or fate? FlashForward pivots on a conflict philosophers have grappled with for centuries, but, hey, in a fun way! ABC’s first-year, sci-fi drama opens with a global “flash forward”—a simultaneous loss of human consciousness in which billions of people inexplicably black out for 137 seconds, experiencing visions of their lives six months into the future. The New York Times’s Ginia Bellafante dug the “bracing suspense” so much that she wrote, “I am challenged to recall another pilot that has lured me so quickly into addiction.” Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) and his team of G-men are tasked with unraveling the mystery. David S. Goyer and Brannon Braga created the show for television, based on Robert J. Sawyer’s novel.
An ABC Studios production. HBO Entertainment and Phantom Four Films.
