HATE IT! Flash Forward

I was so excited when this series was announced...

Now four episodes in, I'm chucking this Joseph Fiennes vehicle to the curb. It feels like this program is just spinning its wheels; we're all waiting for the big bang (or something) to happen...innuendo, hints, secretive whispers....everything ---- being ---- dragged ---- out with no real payoff.

Life's too short to wait for this show to get REALLY interesting, and a PVR only has so much room to house programs that haven't reached their potential.

Sorry Joseph...sorry, Jack Davenport (maybe I could get my Dav fix from old eps of 'This Life'?)...

'Lost' wannabee, begone! Next!

i can't commit to another show like this until Lost wraps. there just isn't room in my brain for any more complicated plot twists, time travel, flash backs,or flash forward (pun intended). : )

I couldn't make it through the first episode. Too much work!

Its getting on my nerves right anf royally and I've only watched the first three. I missed the 4th one on Monday. I tried to concentrate on the storyline but its far too messed up. Crows, Nazis, mosaics and what the hell woman, Joseph's wife...if your destiny is to get it on with the lad's dad then do it! Everyone is following their flashforward why isn't she? He's not been honest with her about his flashforward, so why shouldn't she? FF is screwing with my mind and patience. And that board that Mark posts all the clues on, has to be filled before the end of the series as shown in his 'flashforward', so its going to drag on and on and on. Nevermind his alchol problem, soon everyone who watches will be hitting the bottle. Also, what is the point of putting John Cho in this only to have him effectively mope around about his future. Give me a break. They won't kill him off, he's too good for that show.

I know David S. Goyer wrote FF, but he couldn't make it any more stylistically like the Dark Knight even if he tried harder to. The setting, the music, the constant brooding looks on Fiennes' face.

Sorry for the long comment.

Sarah!

Don't apologize, I love your analysis. You go, girl! :)

I've never watched "Lost" so I may have a higher pain threshold for this type of show. I'll stick with it for a bit longer. If FF ever competes with "Fringe" for DVR time, it's toast.
