ABC's FlashForward entered the fall season as one of television's most anticipated series, largely because there were so many comparisons to the excellent Lost.

FlashForward Sees Its Future, and It's Good

It looks like we may see how this worldwide blackout pans out after all. ABC has opted to give FlashForward a full-season order only three episodes into its young life.
