FlashForward: The Gift


I've been hard on FlashFoward, but I have to hand it to them in this episode, "The Gift." I honestly have no idea now what in the world is going on.

Here's the thing about FlashForward. They seem to blow their hand in the first round. In the very first episode we think we know who lives, who dies, and what's going to happen six months from now. We don't. We simply do not. We are trying to figure out what's going on right along with the characters. In the same episode they both confirm AND deny what happens in the flash forwards is definitely going to happen under impossible circumstances! I guess this series is growing on me. It's still not as good as SGU or V (maybe because it's not called FF?), but I'm hooked on the story.
