Couple of snide reviews

IO9 on FlashForward just about nails it ("Subtlety, thy strong point isn't FlashForward"). Be warned that this is the kind of review that's basically a synopsis with commentary (which sounds like a value judgement but is really just description). (Other people have pointed out how the kangaroo is equivalent to Lost's polar bear - apparently there's even an Oceanic Airlines billboard somewhere in FlashForward's first few minutes.)

MSNBC on the Fame remake is amusing and the kind of thing that seems deadly accurate even if I haven't seen the film and likely never will - didn't like the original so a watered down remake is even less appealing (and hey isn't that what Glee is for?).
