Review Conceived as a puzzle with emotional depth, and hyped as ''the new Lost,'' FlashForward certainly has a lot to live up to. A serialized show with a gimmick -- everyone in the world blacks out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds, and almost all experience ''flashforward'' visions of April 29, 2010 -- it bucks the trend in current network thinking about hour-long dramas, and could have easily become irritating or confusing quickly...Instead, FlashForward is fascinating. Every TV show needs a hero, and so even though the series' premise operates on a global scale, it zeroes in most closely on Joseph Fiennes' FBI agent Mark Benford, a recovering alcoholic whose hazy flash-forward had him seeing a big board cluttered with clues about the blackout. He leads the investigation while also coping with more emotional elements: His wife, Olivia (Lost's Sonya Walger), saw a future vision of herself with another man, which makes Mark jealous, and he doesn't want anyone to know that during his flashforward, he was royally drunk, which makes him ashamed...FlashForward isn't perfect. Much thought has been given to plot and character, but not enough to the visuals: This is one of the most drablooking of intelligent shows. Thematically, FlashForward makes major philosophical points -- stuff about living in the moment, etc. -- but instead of dramatizing them, it often just has its characters speak them...Then there's the bigger picture: Are we really supposed to believe that the biggest investigation into the blackout is being conducted by Mark's tossed-up ''Mosaic Collective'' website? Wouldn't law enforcement worldwide be in touch with our FBI team, sharing intel?...These questions, however, only emphasize how engaging FlashForward can be. The show combines sci-fi-ish conspiracy suspense with excellent prime-time-soap drama. And I like the fact that, post-blackout, people don't Google each other; they say, ''I Mosaic'd you.'' A good sense of humor humanizes this grand puzzle.
