    If the show was inherently boring, then everybody would be bored. That is not the case, so what you are really saying is that you are losing interest in it. There's a difference.

    I think it's pretty cool and it's nothing like Lost.

    As it is nothing like LOST, then it is not worth watching!!

    I like the show but I'm hoping they they can wrap things up in one season like Day Break. I don't think the storyline can carry a second season.


    This show is more like Day Break than Lost.

    the 1 episode was very promising but then the 2,3,4,5,6 was just a slow pain to watch.... the show got better on 7,8,9, it become endurable... now i am just waiting for episode 10 and ofcourse they skip this week so i have to wait one more week to see the season finale, what a utter nonsens this is... after i am done with flashforward season1, i am not coming back for the season2. this tv show is crap and a waste of time, that is my finale saying on this. i am resetting my tv show score from 5 to 1 (abysmal) i suggest others to do it also.

    Each week I have been let down expecting the show to really take off. It is still enough to keep me watching, but only barely. If the show would just focus more on the cause of the blackout instead of these existential questions like, "can we change the future if we have prior knowledge of it?". First of all the question is stupid, and secondly it has been asked enough already... Move on, do something else. More action, more science and more exiting stuff and the show will have a chance.

    The season finale isn't until April. TV seasons run for a year, except for "HEROES"

    I pretty much hate time travel story lines, but this show is so well done I overlook that.

    This is the only Science Fiction show that strikes a decent balance for me, aside from the flash itself, everything else is realistic. People behave sensibly in the circumstances and there isn't some new implausible pseudo science nuttery (like Fringe) each weak.

    We have a key unfolding mystery, good cast, good chemistry, excellent writing/acting.

    I only hope it survives two seasons and gives us some closure when it is prematurely cancelled, which seem to be the fate of any kind of Science Fiction show these days.

    The 1st episode got me hooked i love it. The episodes after were still good but a bit slow but episodes 7,8,9 i loved, for me i feel that's when the story started to develop more.

    The show is pretty dodgey, and to be honest, before I saw the preview for the 2010 episodes, I was ready to give up on the show. The problem is the characters and the acting. The main character is atrocious, and he isn't helped at all by the piss poor dialog. And then comes the actually writers. They are terrible writers with great ideas. You can tell they have some good ideas of where to take the story, but they are unable to show them to us in a compelling manner. I think they should hire new writers and keep the current ones as creative directors or something.

    The only characters I actually like are Bryce and Nichole and Janis. I like Bryce because the actor is great, and he brings some believability to his character. I like Nichole because she is Cute, and generally I nice person. I like Janis because....I dunno why, I just do

    Charlie (from LOST) annoyed me in Lost and he annoys me in this show. Penelope (from LOST) I loved her in LOST but in this show she is sort of annoying...As I mentioned, the main character can't act worth crap, and his lines are "Chloe Sullivan" levels of cringe worthy. Did I mention he can't act? As for Dimitri his acting isn't great or terrible, he just is.

    You did NOT watch the last episode of season 1. Season 1 is on hiatus. There are at least 3 episodes left for this mediocre season. But you better believe they are gonna end on a high point. They know that's the only way to save the show. Btw, thanks for the tip on the new show Prisoner.

    BTW, I'm loving the show. The rabbit hole gets deeper every day. I don't much care for the melodrama - but really like the suspense and mystery of the plot. Less baleful Olivia and Mark would be good.

    Yeah, the questions are very interesting. I want more questions and more answers in every episode. In two of the other mythology heavy shows I love, Lost and Fringe, my favorite episodes are always the ones that deal with uncovering more mythology and raising more questions. My least favorite episodes are always the character drama centered ones that don't touch the mythology.

    Gotta agree with you there. The episodes that don't follow the big picture arc just seem like filler.

    I guess that technically Mark is the main character - but I pretty much look at this as an ensemble show. I agree that Mark's character isn't strong so for me I'm more interested in Weddick, Demetri, Zoe, Janice, Olivia (when she isn't whining), Aaron (when he isn't whining), the young doctor at the hospital, and the Mysterious Persian woman (Nahda, I think).
