Nothing, as I wasn’t watching. But if you’d like to see the promos for “Flash Forward” flashed and forwarded in “Lost”, please go here:


Flash Forward seems to have an official website now as well; all very cryptic and hipster and thedarkknightesque, alas without The Joker. I guess the idea is that you leave your email and get updates for the show. I’ll do that now, and if I get any spam, I’ll know where it comes from.

Are you a Lostophobe just like me? You might want to give the show a try for at least one episode. According to Hollywood Reporter:

ABC is so excited about its new project Flash Forward the network has plans to start marketing the show before its even officially ordered a series.

When viewers tune in for the 100th episode of Lost next week (Wednesday, 29 April), they will be served an extra dose of mystery. Sources said ABC will launch a stealth promo campaign for Flash during the episode, in which Daniel Faraday (Jeremy Davies) will come clean about what he knows about the island.

While questions from the dense mythology of Lost probably will be answered in the episode, the commercial breaks are sure to raise a host of new ones. Viewers will see perplexing snippets that might direct viewers to a Web site.

The mystery spots will in fact be for Flash. They are said to be part of an elaborate marketing campaign for the drama, which has not been officially picked up but is quietly being positioned on ABC’s schedule for next season. ABC has used several online Web sites to promote Lost over the years; sites designed to expand on various aspects of the the show’s complex mythology.

Considering that the series has not been officially ordered yet, that’s an extremely rare and exciting marketing stunt. It’s also very frustrating, because you only get to see the promos if you watch ABC USA. Bad luck for us Europeans! But hey, this is the internet – see you all on youtube!

And who knows – maybe two of the thirty seconds Jack Davenport has in total screentime will make it into one of the promos… keep your fingers crossed!
