    Since we are talking about time travel the 2004 vs 2009 has no meaning but the recent theme of Lost is that the Island can travel in time and space.
    What if the Island became a fixed point and everything else was moved through time instead.

    Regarding the interesting connections between FlashFoward and Lost, did anyone mention the interesting picture/link of FlashFoward on the Lost home page?

    Its a little odd, seeing how all the other references are to Lost... so its not like they are advertising other ABC programs on that page. Its just sitting their in the right corner among all the other Lost pictures.

    Personally, I don't believe in a real connection between the two programs other then they are on the same station. In the couple seconds I spent searching, I didn't see any connections between the writers/producers... unless I missed something... so it makes me believe that their is no creative design to connect the two. But, again, I didn't really spend much time looking at it.

    However, I wouldn't be suprised if ABC has intentionally inserted these similiarities or "connections" for the purpose of creating talk and speculation, and therefore increasing interest in FlashFoward.

    Well yeah .. Something has to replace Lost since that show is ending next May. This is good to hear, though. Best new show this season, IMHO.

    I agree. I was disappointed when they announced that this was the last season of Lost. FlashForward gives me the same type of ride as Lost. It keeps your mind so busy trying to piece things together that its over before you expect it.

    I'm a week behind, but all the causality issues are bothering me. They're investigating things because in the future, they see that they investigated them in the past? Time paradox!

    They need to get past that.

    Also, since they are flashing forward to a point where it's nighttime in the US, how many people are having flashforwards of sleeping or dreaming?

    Also since it's a future where they had the Flash Forward 6 months ago why is everybody going about their life as normal? Wouldn't Benford have a whole SWAT team with him since he knows that two armed men are coming for him on April 29th? And wouldn't others be looking at messages for themselves about what actions to do or avoid in the last 6 months? Would Las Vegas take any bets on the Super Bowl since people could have advance knowledge of the winner? :confused:

    The complexity of the TV series story is that:
    • they don't know if in the future time period they flashed on this flashforward is only the first of many over the next few months,
    • they don't know whether they can alter the future or the vision of the future is altering their behavior to create that particular future,
    • they don't know how the flash is caused, naturally or by sinister persons unknown, and
    • they don't know why the flash was caused if it was caused by persons unknown.
    Obviously, if on April 29th they haven't resolved the mystery, then we can assume they will surround Benford with protection. We know he is alive to that point in time and we don't know the outcome of that future situation.

    But it appears that Agent Demetri Noh may be killed on March 15. Can they alter that? And despite appearances we don't really know that Dr. Olivia Benford is involved with Lloyd Simcoe or merely feeling affection for a man she thinks is dealing with a hard situation.

    As was stated wait till you see this next episode. But remember they already threw us a curve with the father that thought he saw his daughter in Afghan. I dont know if this is the episode you have missed but the remains that he digs up show the DNA of his daughter so right there you can have doubt on whether their FlashForwards were simple dreams as if someone was put into a coma.

    I think they're wanting us to be unsure about whether the flashed-forward future can be changed or not - just like the characters are unsure.

    As far as the daughter, the father mentioned in the 1st episode that there were very few remains returned and tested. Who's to say that the daughter didn't lose a limb (or even a finger or two) that was found and tested, but she survived?

    Well they are going to have to introduce other enemies for this disaster. If you they pick a date that is 6 months away and not get another plot line developing then the show would be over too soon. But I agree. Awesome episode and cant wait till next week.
