Massive Blackout in 'FlashForward' Coming to Life


Massive Blackout in 'FlashForward' Coming to Life


For 2 minutes and 17 seconds fans of the show who are disappointed upon ABC cancellation of the series, will pass out on the streets in front of the network's buildings.

ABC may be forced to revive "FlashForward". In what can be called the most unique Save the Show move, fans of the series are staging a massive blackout for exactly 2 minutes and 17 seconds in front of ABC Network and affiliated offices in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta.

The devotees are hoping that the network would reconsider picking up the second season because there was no proper ending to the sci-fi series. The Alphabet pulled the plug after the season finale went into production, leaving the ending somewhat hanging in the air.

On June 10, fans from the cities will pretend to pass out in front of the network's headquarters. Fans even set up a special website in which can be found the announcement saying "On June 10th, there will be another blackout, this time to change fate."

Beside organizing the blackouts, they have also begun sending calendars with the 'fateful' date April 29 circled, friendship bracelets like the one Charlie gave her father, and letters to ABC President Stephen McPherson.

    This is a great show, it is as good or better than the last couple of seasons of Lost. Maybe it was on the wrong night, ABC should give it another chance!

    Love the show and I'm helping with the movement. What the article doesn't say is that fans from the UK are also planning a blackout in front of Channel FIVE, the network that airs the show. 180+ people have already signed up. The London coordinator has now asked the collaboration of London police to keep everything in order. The city of Seattle is also doing a blackout as well. Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Canada also plan to have a Blackout on June 10th. It's going to be a worldwide event!

    I am one that would like to see a course correction of the series' current fate and be brought back this Fall. I don't watch much on network TV anymore but I did watch this one for sure. The network really dropped the eight-ball on this one.

    This is one of the best shows in years. I'm amazed ABC decided to pull the plug. Wish I could blackout with everyone in LA, but I gotta work. Maybe I'll just pass out at my desk!
