Just watched episodes 1 & 2 which I recorded on Sky+

Wow! The production is brilliant. The story is intriguing. Worldwide blackout, ok, could happen, the seeing 2 mins of your future.... erm.... hopefully a credible explanation will come.

But makes exciting TV, the detail of clues and investigation is clever, bringing all the CCTV and mobile phone technology and internet forums together as tools to solve the mystery.

Anyone else hooked ?

Saw the first ep, but forgot about the second so am recording the repeat tomorrow. An interesting premise, I wonder how many eps there will be?

Yes, I saw the first episode and thought it pretty good too.
I've missed the second part so far but it's repeated so many times I'll catch it later.
I just hope this doesn't get boring like so many other US TV "Sci Fi" programmes which start off great!.. but quickly turn into another bland love interest / flag waving show...

I've watched all episodes so far, still interested, though it was going a bit slow going for a while but I suppose that helped introduce clues to the mystery.

Last night's installment saw a lot of stuff happening, that ambitious lady senator looks to be behind the car park attack, but was she?

And what of the rest of the President's vision, something happened, was it a coup, was his vision not long enough to find out?

I'm Sky+ ing this, but have only seen 2 eps so far. It's an intriguing idea, can't say it's totally gripping as yet.

This week we had a lesbian character who finds out she will be pregnant in her future and will give birth to a baby girl! Rolling Eyes

So far the only thing I've got right is the soldier lady lost a body part and that's what they buried.

Now I'm thinking someone had sex with the lady agent when she was in hospital, maybe her boss!

Darn, the series is having a seasonal break! Evil or Very Mad

been enjoying it less recently, maybe the plot/story is developing too slowly for me. But the twists and turns are fascinating.

Theory. Parallel universe glimpse is my fave at the moment.

The programme after tonight's episode was interesting, more Brits in the cast than I thought!

Still catching up on Sky+. Glad of a Christmas break, time to watch those o/s eps! It's good, but maybe a bit slow.

I read somewhere that FF returns in March in US - I wonder when Five will re-start?

Same time I'm sure. In fact I think UK was seeing the original series a few hours or a day before US.

Couldn't find repeats of last Mondays episodes (11 & 12) but at five.tv there is a Missed-it-Catch-Up video which lasted all of 3'51", so not a lot happened! Confused

Kept up with this, even missing the odd episode, but not enjoying it lately. Be glad to get the last episode out of the way tonight.

I've got last week's to catch up with. Apparently, it's been cancelled in the States. Good idea, could have been better executed.

Well I did enjoy the last episode.

Cancelled the next series? Well there's still time maybe as the second Flashforward showed images suggesting 2015!

John, I was disappointed with the last ep. Too much gunfire and explosions, not enough plot. I left feeling that it had all been a wasted opportunity, could have been much better. Plenty of mileage in the idea.
