FlashForward is definitely the next Lost.Â It is full of questions.Â There is a diverse group of characters, led by actor Joseph Fiennes, whose lives intersect in some way. Â The cast includes two people from Lost, Dominic Monahan (who played Charlie) and Sonya Walger (who played Penny). Â
The story is this: everyone in the entire world blacks out for 2 minutes 17 seconds, some had visions or dreams about the future, and for some it was as if they were sleeping and they remember nothing.Â For those who remember, they all remember the date in their dream is April 29, 2010 and they figure out through connecting with one another how they affect each other on that day.Â Some donâ€™t like the vision they saw of their future, and some do.Â Some wonder if they didnâ€™t have a dream because they wonâ€™t be alive when April 29, 2010 arrives.Â And some begin to wonder if they can change their future.Â
Like Lost, there are a lot of questions that may take months to answer: why was there a kangaroo running down the street?Â How did the little boy know the doctors name?Â Why did the little girl say that in her dream all the good days are gone?
Lost constantly asked the question â€˜where are we?â€™, and in Flash Forward the question will be, â€˜what did you see?â€™ Fiennes character is the one asking why the world blacked out in the first place.Â Expect plenty of unanswered questions.Â The show is on Thursday nights on ABC.Â Â
