What would happen if everyone in the world blacked out for a few minutes and had visions of the future? That's the question presented by ABC's FlashForward, one of the fall season's most anticipated new shows. Interest has been piqued through a series of bizarre television ads and its rock-solid sci-fi concept, but will it live up to the hype?
ABC is counting on it, and to generate even more interest, has released the first 18 minutes of the show online (see the video below). The show has a killer opening sequence, beginning just as the people of Earth come to, and has earned comparisons to another ABC freakout-fest, Lost.
The 18 minutes ABC provides are certainly entertaining, but don't take our word for it, find out for yourself. Then let us know what you think in the comments section below!
FlashForward premieres Thursday, September 24, at 8 pm on ABC.
