Flash Forward: The Complete Series DVD Review



Synopsis: Hold onto your seat as you experience a show like no other. “The ride you are about to take will be worth every minute,” raves Newsday.

Out of nowhere, a mysterious flash causes nearly everyone in the world to lose consciousness and gain a glimpse of his or her life six months into the future. As one elite FBI unit attempts to solve the mystery, the rest of the world’s population soon discovers that, when it comes to destiny, nothing is set in stone.

Uncover the answers and delve even deeper into the mind-bending story with riveting bonus features, including a behind-the-scenes look at the phenomenal freeway disaster scene and inside stories about the series from the cast and crew. Relive every brilliant twist of the groundbreaking show’s complete series – uninterrupted – in this 5-disc collection. It’s a must-have for any FlashForward fan!

Review: I have mixed feelings about the way that Flash Forward went down.  I compare it to a show like LOST that started out SO strong for a few seasons, but really fell off track in the middle and scrambled to regain itself in the end.  On one hand, I'm sad that Flash Forward only lasted a season.  A great sci-fi drama should go on for many seasons and give me some stability.  On the other hand, its almost better like this.  In a way it ended up being like a mini-series that wrapped itself all up in a nice little package and retained its quality. 

Flash Forward was based on a great novel by Robert J. Sawyer.  The plot was thick and the mystery level was high.  Sure, maybe it fizzed out a little too quickly, but to put in this complete series set is a lot of fun.  Its full of extras and great stuff that is sure to entertain.  This is one of those great shows you'll want to own in your DVD library.
