Unlocked Box Issue 1 - Flashforward

FLASHFORWARD is apparently a big hit in the States though it was put on a three month break from December to March apparently to avoid clashing with the Winter Olympics. Based on the cult novel by Robert J. Sawyer, the show is at its most basic about a weird event that causes nearly everyone on earth to lose consciousness for 137 seconds. During that timeframe everyone had visions of what happened to them in six months time hence the title FlashForward.

The show stars Brit actor Joseph Fiennes as FBI agent Mark Benford who is assigned to find out what the hell happened to cause the mysterious blackout. The show was devised by David Goyer and Brannon Braga (the former is a famed comic book/screenwriter and the latter is best known as writer/producer on some of the ST: TNG and 24 series’) and though it’s interesting, the show is poorly paced and lacks excitement. A few episodes in, and it was going way too slow for my liking. I’m not entirely convinced by the casting either.
