For exactly two minutes and 17 seconds, everyone in the world blacks out. During that time, they get a glimpse of their future six months from now. Cool concept.
As pilot episodes go, No More Good Days was amazing. You have two FBI agents chasing down a lead when they blackout with the rest of the world. They wake up to absolute carnage. Cars are overturned, planes have crashed and buildings are on fire. This was some scary stuff and very gripping.
The show moved along at a good pace and gave some development to the two main characters, FBI agents Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) and Demetri Noh (John Cho). Mark is married with a child and an alcohol addiction and Demetri is planning his nuptials. Courtney B. Vance stars as their boss Stanford Wedeck with Lee Thompson Young as Agent Al Gough and Christine Woods as Agent Janice Hawk rounding off the team.
In this pilot episode the team discuss their flash forwards as Agent Al Gough has decided to call it, we find out that although Mark had a flash forward, Demetri didn’t. What does this mean for his future?
As with so many shows that capture my attention like this I have to wonder where it will lead and how long it will take to tell the story. At the moment it feels to me like it could be wrapped up in one season like Day Break. I’m not sure it has a second season it in but, I could be wrong. In the meantime, I’ll keep watching.
