After just watching the last ever episode of Flash Forward I can't help but feel a little disappointed at its demise. Although apparently it's not a foregone conclusion that this show has received the dreaded axe; for, apparently, ABC has simply 'halted' production of the second series. I've mentioned before, I like this show; and after seeing the finale of the first series, plenty more action is promised if there is to be a second series.

As well as keeping me hooked throughout the series, Flash Forward has done a great job with music throughout the series. The finale was no exception; the creators chose a memorable song from a band I'm rather fond of: 'The Funeral' - Band of Horses. It's from the album Everything All The Time and is definitely worth checking out.

As a side note, I've been wincing throughout the series at Sonya Walgner's tragic American accent. Sonya also plays the rather British Penny Widmore in Lost and is a true bred British actress. However, to my amazement (and lack of film knowledge), the actor who plays Sonya's on-screen husband, Joseph Fiennes, is in fact also British. All this time I thought he was just giving an intense over-acted performance that Christian Bale is famous for; when in fact he's just an innocent Brit trying his darndest to be a mean American FBI agent. Good for him.
