Anyone plan on checking this out tonight? I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens.

I dont watch anything on Thursday at 8 so maybe I'll check it out.
Jesus Christ, I just listed all the shows I watch on Facebook and now I'm adding another?

I watched some of the preview and it seemed interesting.
http://abc.go.com/shows/flash-forward

Plus Penelope and Charlie from LOST are in it.

The big crash scene reminded me of LOST a lot when Jack wakes up. I skimmed through it but I actually didnt see Charlie so maybe he's not in it much. I actually have stuff to do tonight before The Office and Fringe so I might not watch it.

let me know if its any good after a few episodes and I'll catch up if I have to.

Will do. Why not just DVR it and watch it over the weekend or something though?

I do that with some other shows already if I dont have time for them. But I might do it with this. If I dont watch this show then I'll just be sitting at the computer with the Phillies on in the background anyway so I might as well watch it.

So did anyone watch this?

For a first episode, I thought it was pretty cool. The opening scene seemed like it was ripped straight out of Lost, and it the whole "destiny" theme obviously shares a common theme with Lost, but it's still unique in its own way.

I like the fact that nearly everyone had a Flashforward. I had only assumed that the main character had the ability to see into the future after the accident, so it was kind of cool to see that the entire world could all see one common moment.

For now I'm totally sticking with this show. I'm curious to see how things move forward, especially since they already put in so many pieces for an "end game" of likely the season. Pretty cool hook.

Yeah I ended up watching it.
I thought it was pretty cool. I'll give it a few more eps to decide in the long run. Really curious to see what it all means in the end or why it happened so that alone migh cause me to stick around for an entire season. It reminded me of Lost mixed a little with Jericho.

I just watched it. Thought it was pretty good myself. I'm definitely in for the long haul.

Funny to see Seth McFarlane pop up.

I didn't watch it, but my mom said it was great. I'll probably catch up later.

He was in that meeting when they all start telling each other about the date they saw in their flashforward. And he was walking down the hall talking with people before that scene. I wonder if he's a regular character.

Does anyone else think that dude walking around when everyone else was passed out might have been Charlie? Or it kind of looked like the dude that Penelope saw herself with in her flashforward.

It could be Charlie, but we don't know anything about his character yet. And the dude Penny saw herself with was the father of the kid in the hospital.

I like how we're calling them by their Lost names.

Yeah I know it was the kid's dad.
But still... he could have been over at the stadium earlier in the day. The shadowy figure they showed just kind of looked like him to me for some reason. Then in the preview for next week it showed Charlie and him talking in his car. So they're up to something.

Ohhh, I thought it showed Charlie talking to the main dude in the car. Yeah, I guess it makes sense if the Dad was at the stadium because she mentioned how she couldn't get a hold of him. I guess we'll have to find out.

Oh, and does anyone think that New Sulu really did have a Flashfoward but doesn't want to share it because he's probably up to no good? Maybe even one of the guys trying to shoot the main dude?

Funny I thought the exact same thing. It was pretty good, I've added it to my recorded shows on the DVR.

I liked the first episode, I agree with what your saying it reminded me a lot of Lost. I am sure with Lost ending this season ABC is trying to find something to take it's place.

I like the characters and I like the concept I am going to stick with it for a couple episodes and give it a shot. If it starts getting way to Lost crazy (a total mind muck) I might have to bow out. I got waaayyyy to into Lost for it to be healthy.

I also noticed that Jay and Jack who do a lost podcast were supposed to start doing a podcast for this show as well. I watched the episode a day late, so I will try to listen to the podcast and hear about all the crap I missed.

As for the dude in the stadium I toytally got the creeps when they showed it and I really like that concept.

I guess LOST and FlashForward are having a little fun together. None of us caught this billboard while the two cops were staking out the chick before the high speed chase.

I just watched this and enjoyed the hell out of it. I'll watch the next few episodes to see if I get hooked.

I'm officially hooked, but its the same way i was in the beginning with lost. I just hope they have and ending in mind already and not just shooting from the hip like it seems like they were doing in lost. I kinda fell of lost because of that.
