“On October 6, The planet blacked out for two minutes and seventeen seconds, The whole world saw the future. ” This two sentence long statement was first uttered on September 24, 2009 and now 8 months later FlashForward is ending it’s often confusing and at times engaging run. As much as I want to be mad at ABC for cancelling the series after saying goodbye to Lost this past Sunday the most I can muster is an annoyed feeling. Because let’s face it as much as I have come to like the show since it came back from hiatus in March of 2010 the truth is that if it had been cancelled before “Revelation Zero” aired I wouldn’t have cared in the least. Sure it would have sucked not seeing Dom or John every week, but I own every season of Lost on DVD (to date that is) as well as Star Trek and Harold & Kumar so I could get my fix any time I wanted too. Then they came back from the longer than necessary break with a bang and from that moment on I was hooked.

Well guys we made it flashforward day. The day they have been cramming down our throats for months and after all the waiting instead of a killer season (yes I know it is technically the series finale, but it wasn’t written that way) finale the show limped it’s way off the main stage. Oh sure we got to see everyone’s flash come to fruition with a few minor changes, well except for Dem’s and Simon’s considering they didn’t have one to begin with, but they were anti-climatic. It would have been better if at least one or two of them were completely different and completely out of left field.

I watched the finale just to see how it ended since I knew it was canceled after it was finished. Had a bit of a laugh seeing the big set-ups that will never get a pay-off.

Exactly. It had a lot of potential, and there were some really great ideas to explore, but it either didn't really explore them, or did so in a really boring way. It was an almost interesting show, kind of like V.

It had a lot of potential for a short run, a mini-series or a movie. Expecting to drag the idea out into multiple seasons of 20+ episodes was never going to work well.

WRONG!!!!

I wish you were right. The ending sucked balls.

As you would say FG, It was rubs.

Was it an ending which said "We know we've been cancelled, we'll try to make it feel rounded off" or was it more "We'll leave tons of stuff left dangling and start many new plot threads just in case we get a second season!!" ?

In other words, 'For better or for worse'?

Worse.

Like if Aliens ended with Ma Alien and Ripley raising Newt together with humorous consequences.
