At first, the sci-fi/action/drama series FlashForward compared favorably to its logical model, Lost--both shows hinged upon a devastating event that changed the lives of a vast array of characters who then struggled to understand what had happened to them. But despite solid performances from its cast--which counted Lost vets Dominic Monaghan and Sonya Walger among its number--FlashForward couldn't replicate Lost's ability to lure viewers back to the island each week for five years. Part of the problem was the way its intriguing premise was handled; after a worldwide blackout allows numerous individuals to glimpse their lives six months into the future, a government task force is created to investigate the phenomenon. Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) and John Cho (Star Trek) head the team, grappling with both individual responses to the blackout as well as their own experiences and that of their families, which include Fiennes's wife (Walger), her intern (Zachary Knighton), and a host of supporting players. Sprawling, multilayered series such as these require a subtle balance between character development and action, and FlashForward never found it; dialogue was overripe, characters were broad and underdeveloped, and the program never found the proper way to reveal aspects of its core question--what did happen during that two-minute-and-17-second blackout--in a manner that would bring back repeat viewership. As a result, FlashForward limped to an ignominious finale, which took place, ironically enough, four days after the final episode of Lost.

The five-disc Complete Series--which renders the previous Part One, Season One set useless--includes a healthy selection of supplemental features, most of which are included on the fifth disc. A single commentary track by Dominic Monaghan and producer Jessika Borsiczky is featured on the two-part episode, "Revelation Zero"; it's breezy and occasionally informative, like Monaghan's commentary on the Lost DVD releases. Architects of Destiny is a 20-minute overview of the series as a whole that focuses on the main participants, while five FlashForward on Set featurettes look at several set pieces from a behind-the-scenes perspective. Less intriguing are faux interview segments with blackout survivors, 10 deleted scenes, and various promotional clips for the show; the disc 5 menu also has an Easter Egg that yields the nine-part Stories from the Mosaic, the documentary-series-within-the-series about individuals' experiences with the blackout. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars flash fantastic Sept. 27 2011
By Lesia
Format:DVD
Enjoyed the series from beginning to end. Was only able to view episode one when first broadcast. It seems the show got lost in the shuffle of other programs and was never advertize in our viewing area again. I was very disappointed. When I noticed that it was available for purchase as a complete series, I snapped it up. Story line remains keeps the viewer intrigued and wanting more. Got to the end and I still wanted more. KOODOOS to all involved in this production. All ten thumbs up!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well paced story Nov. 7 2011
Format:DVD
Flashforward the TV series and Flashforward the book do have the "flash" in common and some of the characters' reactions are similar. However, the TV series is not at all the same story as the book. With that out of the way, I'd say the TV show was creative, enjoyable, fast-moving and had some great acting. I recommend watching.

2.0 out of 5 stars a real let down Oct. 24 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The writing and concept for this series was brilliant. We avidly watched the first half of the series when televised but typically, the network moved the times around and we missed a key episode, which is death for this type of show which has a plot built consecutively.
We knew the series had been cancelled, but didn't realize that the writers hadn't had time (or didn't bother?) to tie up the story line with any satisfactory ending - it was really disappointing!
Definitely NOT worth spending the money on!

I had not watched this series on the air and only got to see it later on Netflix. I have seen many reviews that speak of some slow movement and general disappointment with the first 8-10 episodes. I agree it is slow moving in the beginning but is still a good and interesting show with lots of interesting twists and turns. That said, The remainder of this series is nothing less then riveting and well written and non stop twists and turns that all come together brilliantly in the final episode which leaves you wanting more. I have told all my friends that they need to stick it out and make it to the half way point and they wont be disappointed they did. All the stuff that happens in the first 8-10 episodes is relevant and works itself out before the series ends. I liked this so much from watching it on Netflix that I am on here today to buy the DVD so I will always have it to watch again and again.
