    I'm really hoping this is one of those deals where the writers knew there was a good chance they wouldn't be back for a second season so they wrote this as both a season finale and a series finale. Honestly, I'm never particularly satisfied with those since they don't give the sense of closure they should, but it's probably the best we can hope for. I'm just concerned it's going to end with a huge cliffhanger that's never going to get resolved.

    There is still one more after this one, so this is not the end yet.

    Really? I could have sworn they said this was the season finale. My mistake. Oh well, I still hope they manage to give some degree of conclusion to this.

    http://www.tv.com/flashforward/countdown/episode/1339947/summary.html shows 5.5/10 rating. Ouch!

    Is it worth watching tonight's episode at all?

    Meh, decent episode overall; except for a few scenes it felt rather mundane throughout.

    I'm getting seriously pissed at the characters' stupidity...
    Yeah, you can't change some things so sometimes the people are helpless when something happens to them.
    But Mark drinking was definitely a conscious, very stupid decision. He had two reaons not to do it, the usual AA-reluctance as well as knowing that was was happened in his FlashForward... he did it, he gave up and then still was pissed when that guy (pretty sure he's on Hellenger's paylist) said he'd lost when he himself had already pretty much admitted that to himself.

    One of the most disappointing eps in the series (and let me say, I've been following this because I saw so much potential in it... well, I guess that's all it's got, potentiality...)

    My review's up for all you other pedantic b*stards Wink



    Gave it a 7.2 - probably the weakest of the season.

    The future is changing. Whatever people believe the universe tries to push toward is changing.

    I finally saw it, but it wasn't that bad. It was OK. I find the preview for the next episode amusing with "season finale".

    It was good episode and I hope that in the next one the show receives a good closing. I am getting tired of shows left in mid air.

    According to the other forum thread, it isn't. I will watch it later on my VCR when bored.

    Did anyone see the bug crawling on Charlie's face in the car at 39:01?
