Did you guys see the FLASHFORWARD pilot? I wasn't in love with it, but I'm intrigued enough to keep watching. I think it's a good example of the fact that pilots don't need to provide a lot of answers; they just need to provide some interesting questions that you'd like to find the answers to.
Why did everyone black out? Will the visions of the future come true? Who is behind all of this? And who is that dude in the stadium in Detroit?
