    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Enticing concept, bad execution. This show is for people who want to know why Heroes got cancelled without having to watch Heroes. (And why copy so many things from Heroes? Claire-bear vs. Charlie-bear. FCOL!) At least Heroes was pretty exciting for a season or two. FF only captivates for two episodes. Not the mention the absolutely awful acting. I do want to give props to the super cool twist in the storyline where one of the main characters - FBI agent Noh - impregnates his "super lesbian" colleague while being held hostage by a warlord in some Somalian village.

    It's evocative, smartly structured, well acted and insists that the strange ride you are about to take will be worth every minute.

    It's an intriguing, mind-bending concept that's mostly well executed, with a built-in payoff cleverly timed to coincide with the May rating sweeps.

    FlashForward is a good idea, and while that’s no guarantee of a good series, the first hour gives us reason to hope.
