Almost two weeks ago, I wrote an article about Flashforcast presenter David Vox Mullen's campaign to help save ABC's Flashforward. Since then, things have escalated somewhat so I wanted to write a "Save Flashforward" update to show the progress that has been made so far.
First and foremost, there were lots of comments on my previous article showing support for Flashforward and some saying that letter writing had begun. This is a great start to the campaign, and additionally an unknown fan created a Save Flashforward page on Facebook which is growing steadily every day.
Flash Forward Producers most likely wished the ratings for the episode that aired on April 1th were an April Fools joke when they hit an All time low of 5.07 million viewers, a million less viewers then then last weeks 2 parter and a 60% decrease of the first episode that aired, with the news of some stars jumping ship to other shows it's becoming clear it will most likely not come back for a second season.
Ok now if you have seen the show Flash Forward you would now how everything happened but i will scim through the basics:
On an unknown date everyone on the face of the earth was blacked out for 137 seconds (2mins 17secs). Most people saw a vision of April 29th 2009 approx. 6 months from present day.
Some people saw nothing,Blackness- indicating that they will not be alive in 6 months time.
One of these people is an FBI dective named Demitri Noh. Demitri eventually finds out that he was shot several times in the chest two days before the flashforward time.
