Flash Forward: The Blackout Just Got Bigger

by Iain Welford

A couple of weeks ago we reported on a worldwide protest organized by fans of the canceled show Flash Forward. The protest had been staged to bring attention to the number of fans out there who want a second season of the show in order to tie up all the loose ends left behind. Well, as has been proved time and time again, determined fans can become well organized and it seems that the events on June 10th was only the start.

For a quick catch-up, fans of the show “blacked out” for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, mirroring the events of the first episode where the whole world “flashes” forward” and sees their future. Check out the video below to get an idea how popular, fun and worldwide the event actually was!

Since then, the organizers of Prevent The Blackout have sent a package to ABC which includes the above video as well as press articles covering the events, a four foot stuffed Kangaroo, and friendship bracelets. They also sent the package to other networks to show the popularity of the show.

The website is now looking for fans to contact the network themselves through letters and e-mails as well as through Twitter to show their support for the show. In addition to this, a second event has been set for Sunday, June 27th.  Read the details below and take part if you want to help Flash Forward come back. It worked for Family Guy and it could work for Flash Forward.
