After a pause of several months – longer than planned – Flash Forward has returned to our TV screens with two episodes back to back It’s back with some very ropey computer special effects. It’s also back with the old favourites: the attempts to do deep and meaningful which don’t quite come off. But that’s [...]
Catch-up special on Saturday 20 March (details including repeat slots here) and then its the first new episode on Monday 22 March, 9pm on Five. Previous episodes are available to watch via Demand Five.
The TV series Flash Forward was due to return to TV screens today in the US, for the second part of its first season. However, this has now been delayed by a fortnight, adding to the general sense of problems besetting the show and making it even less likely that the show can continue to [...]
Title says it all, but given the number of people coming to my Flash Forward posts hunting for this information, I thought you might appreciate the news. It’s due to screen again in the US on Thursday 4 March and Five have said they will start screenings in the UK in March.
During the week, the last episode of Flash Forward was screened for a while. It being a US show that is, unusually, being broadcast at nearly the same time in the UK, this means we’ve also got one of the US scheduling habits imported with the show – the mid-season break.

Episode 9 of Flash Forward started off with a series of flash backs. The use of this slightly forced plot device highlights the lack of plot and character development over the last few episodes.

Meanwhile, back in the land of the plot there was some small movement – one mystery was resolved in a rather simplistic manner (no, person wasn’t back from the dead, they’d just never died – even though someone had looked at them [...]
The good news: no quantum physics inspired chat up lines. The even better news: the questionable cardigan was shrouded in dark most of the time. The bad news: the kangaroo didn’t make a return. The plot thread juggling news: the plot’s becoming easier to follow but only by leaving various loose ends abandoned in the [...]
Oh dear me. Has there ever been a more cringe-inducing naff chat up scene opening a TV episode? Drunk scientist on train uses crude quantum physics puns to chat up blonde with long hair and short skirt. Oh, and interleave the chat-up lines using Schrodinger’s cat with scenes from a hospital of a major character [...]
How indeed can you not? The final moments of Flash Forward Episode 5 showed why I should hate the show – and why I really love it. Sudden car crash. New villains touting guns and wearing black appear. Car park shoot out. Mysterious attempted kidnapping. Significant nods between two main characters. Another badly shot after it looks like [...]
