Loosely based on the 1999 novel FlashForward by Canadian Science Fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer, FlashForward, the 2009 TV series from ABC-TV is far more than simply the show's producers paying Sawyer for the rights to use the name. Not only did Sawyer visit the set during shooting of the show's pilot episode, he also had a brief cameo appearance and I understand he has continued consulting on the show. In the book the FlashForward is centered at CERN in Switzerland and is triggered when the Large Hadron Collider accelerator is being used to perform a search for the Higgs boson (also known as the "God particle") - the jump into the future is approximately 21 years. The time frame in the TV series is different as the FlashForward is triggered by unknown means and the jump into the future is approximately 6 months to 10:00 P.M EDT on April 29, 2010. But the questions remain - who are the people who triggered the FlashForward and how did they do it? We'll just have to watch and find out for ourselves.

From official release/information:

Product Description:
Experience the nonstop action, excitement, and drama of the first ten episodes of the critically-acclaimed FlashForward and get set for television's best new show (Mark A. Perigard, Boston Herald) to grab hold of you from its first explosive moment. Chaos reigns after a mysterious event causes everyone in the world to lose consciousness at exactly the same time. Was it an act of nature or something far more sinister? During the global blackout, every man, woman, and child was given a glimpse of his or her life six months in the future. One elite law enforcement team jumps into the investigation, attempting to solve the mystery, as the world's population wrestles with the choice of whether to embrace the fate they've seen or fight to change the future. Relive every brilliant twist of FlashForward's first ten episodes, and prepare yourself for what's to come in the second half of Season One. Who is D. Gibbons? Who is the shadowy figure unaffected by the blackout? And what's next for your favorite characters as their day of reckoning approaches? Plus, dig even deeper with never before seen bonus features and an exclusive sneak peek at the next chapter, only available on DVD.
