“FlashForward” is back on FIVE, but unfortunately, the rates a pulling a Titanic. I hope nobody will click “eject” after “ff”… but on the plus side, there are more interviews with Jack than ever. Or it’s the same interview, re-interpreted by 20 different people: what would be your ff, what’s it like working on US television, will Lloyd hook up with Olivia, do you know how ff will end, what’s the average speed of a swallow…
(Can’t somebody ask him about his thoughts on Arséne Wenger, for a change?)
During the great global blackout on ABC’s FlashForward, most of the show’s characters got sneak peaks at life-changing moments they’re apparently destined to experience. But cast member Jack Davenport suspects, if he had a real-life flashforward, all he would see is 2 minutes, 17 seconds of the same mundane stuff he does every day. “I would probably find myself either walking the dog, changing my son’s diaper or doing both at the same time,” he says. “A lot of life is routine and I’m sure my future would be just as prosaic.”
Sounds better than my flashforward: cat jumps on table. Cat jumps on desk. Cat changes locks on front door.
A WORD FROM SPARKY
I know that “Good Boy, Sparky!” is taking ages to load at times. The reason is actually a positive one – with the start of FlashForward’s second half of series one, interest in Jack has once again gone through the roof. Heavy traffic = tailback. This blog here is hosted on WordPress, which has its own servers, so it’s not affected. I’m very sorry about any trouble this causes, but unfortunately, there’s not much I can do. Friends, Romans, Netizens – I ask for your your forgiveness.
In more positive news: “Good Boy, Sparky!” has now had over 500’000 visitors! So that’s either the same five fans visiting the site 100’000 x each, or Jack Davenport is more popular than we thought. Neat!
I don’t buy paparazzi shots.
I don’t want to see paparazzi shots.
I seriously can’t be arsed.
