Star on Disney+

Launch date: 23rd February 2021

That’s right Star is coming to Disney+ here in the UK and that means so much more content, that will be updated with more content as time goes on. This is an amazing addition to the service and it will probably be worth checking out the TV Shows as some will be removed from other services.

FlashForward – Episodes 4 & 5

I have just finished watching a double bill of FlashForward as last week, episode 3 got deleted off Sky+ so had to record it again on Friday. So then decided just to wait until this morning when episode 4 had been recorded as well. Plus side of watching it after its been recorded? Fast forwarding the adverts. It was actually quite difficult to watch 2 episodes in a row, as so much information to take in from each episode.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Paranassus – A group of fans trying to ensure the film gets a big release in the US and latest news posted.

FlashForward – TV Series

FlashForward is a new TV show,  which is 3 episodes into a run of 22. I have been watching it and pretty much hooked so far, as it’s just so interesting as you never really can see what is going to happen next. In the pilot episode, a mysterious paranormal event causes everyone on the planet to simultaneously lose consciousness for 137 seconds. In the 137 seconds everyone gets a glimpse of what is going to happen 6 months in the future. Everyone’s flashforward pointed to the same date in the future, but what if you did not see anything? Does that mean you will be dead by that date?

A group of FBI Agents in LA begin to try and figure out why exactly everyone lost conciousness and what it all means. Finding out different flashforwards and trying to piece them all together creating a big picture to see what exactly is going to happen or potentially going to happen and if it is possible to stop them from coming true. Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) is one of the agents really wanting to figure out what his flashforward meant as he was sure that he figures out who or what caused it all.

 

The team are also trying to figure out if it will happen again. Different events occur which take everyone a step closer to there flashforward coming true. Which is very strange as they are all still trying to come to terms with what they saw. However, some people are very happy with their flashforwards and would just love for them to come true. While those who had flashforwards of things which were awful do not want them to come true. Especially if changes happened which they would never have expected and still cannot see happening. So can people change what seems destined to happen? That will hopefully be a question that will be answered over the series and next episodes.

Episode 1 – showed when the flashforward’s first occurred and the beginning of the investigation of how, why and if it would happen again. With everyone talking about what they saw, when everyone became unconscious it caused a lot of car crashes and everything as people were driving. So this caused a lot of accidents which needed to be sorted out.

Episode 2 – Mark’s daughter Charlie eventually told what she saw, and knew D. Gibbon’s was a bad man. The name which is on Mark’s wall in his flashforward, and is therefore a prime suspect so far in the case of who is involved in the whole thing.

Episode 3 – Demetri has a conversation with a woman who tells him the exact date that he will be murdered on. Mark goes to Germany to talk to a former Nazi who was in prison for war crimes who claims he has information on what was going on. He was told that the dead crows are significant in to figuring things out.

 

 So far I am really hooked on this show and so interested to see which direction it goes in over the next 19 episodes of the season. I will probably find myself posting in depth posts after each episode which airs in the UK on a Monday night at 10pm on channel Five. Which is only a few days after it is on in the US which I think is very good, as not really much chance of seeing any spoilers about the show. I have noticed that a lot of people I know are watching this show, so hopefully will be something to talk about. I do not often watch new TV shows like this, wanting to see the next episode and wonder what happens next. So hopefully this show will keep me wanting to see what happens next and look forward to the next episode. So far so good!

What is everyone else’s views on this show?
