FLASHFORWARD (2009 U.S.)
Everyone on the planet blacks out for a couple of minutes, and sees a vision of their future in this short-lived (one season of 22 episodes) loose adaptation of a Robert J. Sawyer novel (who created the series along with Brannon Brega and Davis S. Goyer). It faltered a bit in early episodes following the interesting premise set-up, but later picked-up speed and delivered some pretty good tv. Shame it never made it to a second season, as all is not resolved and it makes recommending it a bit difficult. Goyer directed some episodes. With Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Cortney B. Vance, Jack Davenport, Brian F. O`Byrne, Zachary Knighton, Peyton List (from SHUTTLE), Dominic Monaghan, Gabrielle Union and Yuko Takeuchi (THE GLORIOUS TEAM BATTISTA). Guest stars were Annabeth Gish, Gil Bellows, Peter Coyote (as the American President), Lindsay Crouse, Callum Keith Rennie, Lee Garlington and Gina Torres.
