    Did anyone else see the show tonight? It certainly looks interesting. One of the guys from LOST is involved and one of the writers from Star Trek TNG is involved as well. There was a LOST reference I saw and also a character from LOST will be on the show later. Looks like I have something to bide my time w/until January.

    I caught it. I think it definitly looks interesting to say the least. I'll be watching for sure. But ya it seems like they are trying to take over for Lost when it finishes up next year and be the strange, trippy, serial show of TV land.

    Watched and actually liked it! I am not a network TV guy but this looks like it has mass potential. Lots of LOST hints in this show too. Notice the billboard for Oceanic airways? ALso, if they were blacked out for 2:17 seconds, then why did the guy that was going to shoot himself regain consciousness and see those baloons floating about 10 feet over his head ? That chick that was holding them was only like 20 feet away and in 2 minutes those balloons would be at about 500 feet. Lots of stuff to pay attention too on this show.

    There are two actors from LOST on the show. Both Penny and Charlie (played by Sonya Walger and Dominic Monaghan) are featured. Monaghan's character Simon is seen in the previews at the end of the episode.

    It truly is a "blink and you'll miss it" type of show, that (like LOST) requires the audience's attention. The show has a plan, and believe it or not, the storyline introduced in the first episode will be resolved this season. To which I ask the question "Which one?"

    Long Term Plan

    For those that missed it, the will be an encore presentation of the show this evening. Check your local ABC listings.

    Caught it last night. Looks like it could be an interesting show.

    In case anyone wants to watch tonight, I won't give the details, but the revelation of the head of the FBI office's flash forward made me laugh out loud. Good to see they went that route and didn't make every character's flash forward a plot device.

    I have been looking forward to it for some time......the creators of Lost have said that the book was one of the inspirations for the series......the book was very good and it's author is Robert J Sawyer......J as in James Sawyer......

    also if anyone remembers the funeral parlor in which Jack visits Lockes body....the name of the parlor is Hoffs Drawlar.....which (I'm told) is an anagram for "flash forward"

    Ok...wasn't so sure about this show after the first week but I can honestly say that I am officially hooked. I hope it doesn't get to crazy like Lost though. And the daughter is quite the little actress.

    Yeah, LOST comes back in January or February for it's final season.

    This FF show is pretty cool, as the hour seems to fly by. So far it has been discovered that there were two people that remained "awake" during the blackout. I wonder if they represent a group that was behind it, or if it was actually something benign.

    Or if they were spared for some reason that they are not aware of? But that seems unlikely since that guy in the stadium didn't seem to be too shocked at what he saw. If I was in a stadium and 50000 people all of a sudden passed out and I didn't, I would probably not be Joe Cool wandering out the exit.

    The weird thing is the guy at the stadium was on the phone to "D. Gibbons" during the blackout. It was also supremely creepy when the little girl said "D. Gibbons is a bad man".

    Very creepy when the girl said D. Gibbons is a bad man. It was also creepy when she freaked out when she saw the boy in the hospital.

    Did anyone else think it was creepy when they showed the video of Suspect Zero walking around the stadium? I dunno why but that is what really creeped me out.

    Yes it was creepy. It was also creepy when the guy had the lighter in the warehouse saying something about the future. I wonder what part Charlie from LOST will play in the series?
