And where do the main characters on FlashForward live? Why, on Sawyer Court, of course!

This week's episode of FlashForward, the ABC TV series based on my novel of the same name, not only added a whole lot of physics to the show but also revealed where Mark Benford and Dr. Olivia Benford live: at 25696 Sawyer Court. We see the above address label in the flashforward vision of Dylan Simcoe, son of Lloyd Simcoe, in episode 6, "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps," and the street name is spoken repeatedly in dialog.

Cool! Almost as cool, in fact, as my cameo in the first episode, "No More Good Days" (below).

Nice proximity to Dodger Stadium there!

Any significance that you know to the house number?

Dwight, the zip code places the house in Westwood, between Bel Air and Beverly Hills, in-between UCLA and Los Angeles Country Club. Dodger Stadium is farther east, in-between Echo Park and Chinatown. But, alas, there is no Sawyer Court in Westwood.

Hmmm...seemed fairly close to my eyes from a quick Google Maps search, although those last four digits after the hyphen...anyway. Fictional geography was briefly part of my own bread and butter back when I was working on comic book-based roleplaying games, so seeing the Benfords' address in detail like this was a bit of entertainment for me.

now that more physics is appearing in the show, I will keep watching

Oh, I see what you are getting at, Dwight. You believe the zip code to be 90026, but, if you look at the image closely with an enhancement tool, the zip code is really 90024, which is why I thought your comment about Dodger Stadium seemed odd.

Yes, I concede that if it were 90026, it would indeed be a nice proximity to Dodger Stadium.

I just saw the episode yesterday. Cool!

I can see myself getting a bit tired of the "brooding FBI agent, father, husband" figure though.
