    Watched the first episode on Five last night. Sets everything up nicely, great hook at the end of the episode, and the plot is interesting.

    If you don't know what it is, and without spoiling anything - everyone in the world blacks out for 2 mins 17 seconds at exactly the same time. And during that period, they all get visions / dreams of their future in 6 months time. Which seem to be accurate, and in some cases shared.

    Worth a look, if you do that 'thing' or have access to Five OD.

    I do find it slightly amusing that the two lead actors who play the husband and wife are both Brits (Joseph 'Shakespear in Love' Finnes & Sonya "Penelope Widmore" Walger). Their American accents seem OK to me, but what do our friends across the pond think? Good, or as bad as Dick Van Dyke's cockney? ;)

    I'm hooked already.

    I watched this as well and it seems pretty good, I think their american accents are pretty dodgy though, and they both still sound as English as they are to me lol.

    I was thoroughly uninterested in it until the final moments. Seeing the guy walking about was kind of creepy/cool. I'll give it a few more episodes to see if it gets better. Pilots are rarely any good anyway.

    Yeah, just watched it, looks awesome.

    And its based on a book, so I went and looked at the plot summary on wikipedia and that sounds awesome too, so I may get the book and have a read (which is unheard of for me).

    I think her accent was pretty good and I've heard her using her normal accent in Lost and she hides it pretty well.

    It's certainly got potential.

    Just watched it on 5OD.

    I'd not seen any trailers, dont watch much trestrial telly TBH.

    A guy I give a lift to work was talking about it, so I gave it a look.


    It could be quite good.
    But the 1st episode of lost was good, and that turned out to be utter carp, glad I ditched it early on.
    Hope this is better.

    I thought lost was amazing...odd how people see things totally differently! :)

    I thought the first episode of Flash Forward was good but not as good as losts.

    I am hopeful however it does pick up.

    Just realised that Seth MacFarlane was playing a FBI agent.

    What did everyone think of the 2nd episode?

    I'm loving the FBI Chief, especially when he finally tells the truth over his Flash Forward.

    I'm definatly getting more drawn into the story, and I was hooked at the end of the first episode.
