I have just finished watching FlashForward, Season One , Episode 22 (FutureShock) and I really really loved the episode which, conversely, has now made me really angry with the whole series (and I never get angry, especially over TV!!).
I went into this episode knowing full well that the show had been cancelled weeks earlier, however what you come away with is a load of hooks that have you excited begging(!) for the second series, when you know full well there’s not going to be one!! I wish that ABC would at least commission another two episodes, just to try to tie up a few of the looser ends, leave some less-raw hooks to the storyline and to give a few more answers/a sense of resolution.
Without doubt, a really marvellous episode that made me appreciate the series as a whole. The alignment was really beautifully done, and I did shed the odd tear here and shout the odd ‘OMG’ at the TV there heh.
Here’s the last two minutes of the programme:
——– SPOILERS ——— SPOILERS ——— SPOILERS ———
If, like me, you’re loving the music, it’s The Funeral by Band of Horses.
Finally, a bit of ‘Did you know?‘ trivia – there’s an image contained in the title credits for each episode that gives some clue as to what each episode is about! 😀
FlashForward will be released on DVD in the UK at the end of September 2010 – many online retailers are already taking pre-orders, and are retailing around the £35 price point.
