FlashForward

I’ve been digging the new show FlashForward which airs on ABC and stars Joseph Fiennes among many other fine actors. The show has already been hailed as the new LOST. I hate it when people say something is the new something else. Why can’t it just be a really good new show. Fiennes stars as an FBI agent with a great younger partner, John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar) and his wife is played by Sonya Walger (Desmond’s girlfriend/wife Penny on LOST, she also was in the Sarah Connors Chronicles.) It also looks as if Dominic Monaghan (Charlie also from LOST) will be stepping up in a nice sized role as well. The show is based on a novel, so there seems to be a bit of depth here (I know, lots of books don’t have any depth at all.) Anyway, the show is about the whole world passing out for a couple minutes and during their nap they have a dream of a precise point in the future and everyone sees the same exact point in time that is yet to happen. Everybody starts acting a bit different because what if things turn out that way – good or bad. The show follows the FBI guys that are trying to figure out why it happened and if it is an evil plot of some sort. The show has also featured music by Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake, and even Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton, so it’s doing well with that as well. I thought it might be nice to post some of the songs from FlashForward featured thus far. The Björk songs was particularly well placed in the soundtrack of last weeks episode.
