Not a whole lot of originality here, no. The Airport
plot is a cliché now...we're given glimpses of the private lives of characters who don't know each other but who are brought together by some catastrophic event. But I'm hoping FlashForward
doesn't fall into the same trap Heroes
did...plots that keep getting more and more complicated because the writers can't figure out a way to resolve earlier complications. I do like the look of the show, though. Very slick. And I like the gimmick of having everyone on earth lose consciousness at the same time, for 2 hours and 17 minutes.
Good solution to the topic-naming problem, Barbara. But when this topic fills up and it's time to start a new one, you might consider removing the space between "SF" and "TV". One fat acronym is always better than two skinny ones.
