The series built a nice MythArc with a great HolyShitQuotient. Based on the 1999 [[SeriesOfTheBook sci-fi novel]] by Canadian author Creator/RobertJSawyer (who gets a blink-and-you-miss-it CreatorCameo in the pilot), though it shared little with the book other than the flashforward concept and a character name or two. This show is not to be confused with ''Series/FlashForward1996'', which is totally (and tonally) different.

Added DiffLines:

** In the final episode, there's a reference to President Segovia as being alive, well, and in office. Apparently, something happened to keep Vice President Clemente's flash forward from coming true. No details, though.


** In the second episode, Mark puts up a picture of the burned doll on the wall. But the doll wouldn't have been burned (and he wouldn't have gone into the doll factory at all) if he hadn't had the vision of the burned doll picture in the first place. [[AustinPowers Oh no, I've gone cross-eyed.]]

* BrickJoke: After the blackout, Mark sees a wild kangaroo show up from nowhere and then disappear. When Mark is taking Charlie trick-or-treating, it briefly reappears. In the finale, [[spoiler:shortly after the blackout]], the kangaroo shows up again...from nowhere...[[BigLippedAlligatorMoment and then disappears]].
