The Event - Page 4
And now they're going to hiatus till Feb?
Also, I'm still assuming they're not actually aliens, but rather time travelers. But I could be giving the writers too much credit in not making aliens that look exactly like us.
Is it bad that I fell asleep during the hero's life-threatening surgery? Or that I was disappointed when I woke up and found he had survived?
Watching this show is like picking a scab: it hurts like hell but I just can't stop.
Gotta love how the doctor patched him up... great job on that exit wound but the entrance wound in his back is still there guys!
Instead Isabelle gets shot/shoots herself in the kneecap? What?
I don't remember them saying anything about shooting herself in the head. I think the point is she can either choose to be excommunicated from the group, or prove her loyalty by shooting herself in the knee (which I've heard is one of the most painful places to be shot).
Not kneecapping herself. Weird.
I think the show is okay, but I feel the biggest, weakest link is John Ritter's son and his girlfriend. The show drags when these two wishy washy characters show up. I find the other elements a bit more intriguing, although with this show that's not saying much. I find the show is still just interesting enough that I want to find out what happens.
Personally, i think its doling out answers and hints at a very good pace.
Was looking forward to this show before it started, but I'm done with it.
A guy's going to crash a plane into the president! And then the plane vanishes! And then they find it thousands of miles away! And then everyone dies! And then they're not dead! And then they're dying again! And then aliens! And then old guy young, young girls old!
The show requires a superhuge Event every episode to distract from the fact that the characters are all boring and the actual plot has never developed beyond a sketch.
I'll watch the 'fall finale' for the heck of it, but I knew I was done with the show when the Alien Mama's Boy started bawling. Apparently that storyline ending up interesting wasn't The Event.
Originally I was worried that they were going to mention "The Event" in every episode to remind you what you're watching. Now I'm worried that they're not mentioning it enough. I can't remember a single reference to "The Event" since the Pilot.
I figured that the aliens had come to warn us about "The Event" but that doesn't seem to be the case as they've had sixty-six years to do so, but haven't said anything. Then I figured that they were going to try and leave before "The Event" but some of the aliens seem to want to stay.. so I guess that's not it either.
Nobody is talking about "The Event". Is there even still going to be an "Event"? Should I even care?
I thought "The Event" was the plane disappearing through that wormhole in the first ep.?
I think they should show us the "Event' this season, although if what Dr. Murder says is true, there is no one singular event. But I'd like to see something really major happen, and have the rest of the series be the aftermath of said event. Aliens make themselves public, war, whatever. And please reunite that girl with her sister just so we can end that nonsense.
Aliens. From the future. Calling it now.
I think that it's trying to be 24 in structure in a number of ways, but without as strong a narrative thrust that 24 had to get through the middle episodes. Though even 24 had issues with that.
It's amazing how they keep spinning this garbage around and around.
The files not burnt all the way and burning them in the building....lol.
We dont have the capability of flying a plane to anywhere in the world in an hour.......... lol.
Back to The Event and suprising and disappointing us at the same time. The show has something, but lacks in common sense.
Let's see, last night, we go to Tibet where they have built a large "port" of some sort with lots of silver and shiny things. Yeah i guess the goverment has no way of seeing this from space and questioning what it is doing in Tibet.
The fact that a metal garage door was keeping them inside the prison. Yeah cause all their weapons and such dont have any use!
Here, i'm going to untie you, go run and get out of here .... oh yeah, forgot about the bullets possibly hittin you, shucks!
Hardball scene was horrendous.
I'm glad they moved the plot along, answered some question but I think this show shares the V writers. How can a show that has a good premise get fucked up so badly. Atleast Lost only fucked up the landin. The Event, V, Heroes fucked up from the get go.
So has everyone officially given up on this show? I've been watching since it came back and though its nothing great, its far from unwatchable. The Jason Ritter storyline, however, has completely bored me other than the fact that he's working with that Hot brunette is nothing but eye-candy. The Hal Holbrook 'creepy old man with somekind of plan' is only minimially interesting. The good stuff is with Sophia and the President. And now that Thomas is out of the picture i.e. DEAD, kinda glad that the plot will center around Sophia instead of him.
The problem with that show is the alien's endgame. If there planet is indeed going to consumed by its nearby star and they have to take over Earth to continue as a species, that would require our extermination. We all know that's not going to happen.
I'll stick around a few more episodes to see where this all goes.
I'm so mad that I have to bump this thread up.
But I've just finished watching a five episode marathon I had saved to my DVR, and I don't even know what the fuck is going on with this show. So Dempsey turns out to be a Sentinel, descended from a line of Sentinels who've been protecting earth from alien invaders. Fine, but why was experimenting on children and turning them into senior citizens? Please tell me that I just missed an episode, and an explanation for this.
The White House stuff is pretty much the only thing that's keeping me tuned in. Yes, its very 24ish but it actually entertaining watching the VP completely implode in front of out eyes. Any sense of reason or logic is best kept at bay with this show. But hey, that's what one expects with Sci-fi anyway.
The Demsey stuff was a complete waste, unless they come up with a decent explanation. As is the Jason Ritter and hot sidekick storyline.
Not at all surprised. The thing with these types of shows (V as well), aliens taking over the Earth etc., is with the potential of being canceled at any moment how do you actually create a narative.
So I just wonder how they'll end this knowing they're not coming back.
Oh well, they could have always killed Leila during childbirth and had brunette chick take over as an adopted mother for yet another child.
