Don't forget ABC's FlashForward debuts on Thursday September 24th, 2009.
Based on the award-winning 1999 novel by Canadian author Robert J. Sawyer, the series features a stellar cast including Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Jack Davenport, Courtney B. Vance, Zachry Knighton, Peyton List, as well as a couple of LOST alumni Dominic Monaghan and Sonya Walger. The premise involves a global event that causes everyone's consciousness to "flashforward" 6 months into the future. The event lasts for 2 minutes and 17 seconds during which time everyone on the planet blacks out. The character are forced to deal with the ensuing chaos from the black out and trying to reconcile what they saw in their own future.

Have you read the book yet? If so is it like the show, at least the pilot episode or have they changed it to the point that it is same in name only?ReplyDelete
My husband and I love the show; we're fascinated by anything paraphysical anyway.ReplyDelete
Andy, I've written a time-travel series for young readers (with an adult following also). How could I get my books reviewed by you?
They are: The Mariner's Secret & Danger in the Jeweled City.
