Provocative concept propels superb ‘FlashForward’

From its unsettling opening image to its startling final shot, FlashForward could be the best network movie you'll see this year. Now let's hope it's an equally good series.

Created by David Goyer (Batman Begins) and Brannon Braga (TV's Star Trek revival),FlashForward has the season's most intriguing high concept: The entire world blacks out at the same time and gets a glimpse of their lives six months into the future. And it sells that concept from the very first scene, as FBI agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes, staking a strong claim in TV's wounded romantic-hero territory) crawls out of an upside-down car, with scenes of destruction all around — which is what happens when people in moving vehicles pass out behind the controls.
