Review - FlashForward Season 1 Episode 6 Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

The first 15 minutes of the episode, I was thinking "hey, this is pretty good." As I kept watching, I starting "oh no, oh no," and then "this is terrible."It was as if a train was going straight, and then started veering of course, and then just flying off the rails. In the end, another disappointment and sadly no improvement.

Mark chasing down the masked teenagers, then the stupid collision of Lloyd, Olivia, and Mark, and then the even worse argument between Olivia and Mark. I reached a point when Olivia came home and I was straining to continue watching. It was painful, but I made it through.

Janis having a small chance of conceiving throws a wrench into the flashforward being the future idea. Dimitri and Al go on a ridiculous search for some blue hand. Are the writers just throwing out very specific pieces of evidence and expecting them to fall into place in a later episode?

The major revelation of the episode was Lloyd telling Simon that their experiment killed 20 million people. So Lloyd at least thinks it was an experiment, and is for now a "bad guy."  Simon is definitely bad, as he reveals to a woman he just slept with that in his blackout, he saw himself killing someone. Great, now hurry it up.

Score: 8.1/10
