And now we come to the end of the first of half of “Flash Forward’s” inaugural season. And we’ve come a lot farther in, what, 10 weeks? than I thought we would in terms of discovering who or what is behind everything…
Tonight’s episode marked another step in the format for “Flash Forward” that I hope continues, where some of the lesser stories are given more screen time while the main plot advances more or less in the periphery.

Plus FBI partner angst, medical drama, and more terrorist connections than you can shake an ebony waterfowl at.

Anyway, getting on with the third episode, entitled “137 Sekunden”. I was a little disappointed with… Read More »Flash Forward, Episode 103 “137 Sekunden”
Looks like we’re developing a core theme to Flash Forward, that of dealing with a family and its own survival.
