The Event

WTF? I still haven't decided if it was good or bad. I'm guessing the prisoners in Alaska are some alien race or some shit?

I wish they kept it in chronological order. That skipping back and forth like that fucked me up. The episode did end in incredible drama.

I really want to give it a chance, but they better pick up the pace next week. It's coming across a little too scattered without revealing much, if anything, to make you salivate for next week's episode.

I agree 100%. I remember seeing commercials "This show is the new Lost" or something like that. I remember after watching the first episode of Lost I was like "Holy shit!" This one was more like a "What the fuck?"

Face-fucking-palm

I stopped watching after about 20 minutes. I'm not watching something that skips from present day to a year ago to five minutes ago to three months ago. All that means to me is that the plot would be stupid and boring if shown in chronological order so they chop it up and feed it to you out of context for the sake of drama.

"Maybe if we keep them a little confused they won't notice this is bullshit!"

Also, I hate any show where I have to watch the same little piece of shit clip three or four times just because they want to appeal to people who flip channels.

I like it so far.


A lot of drama, and it was pretty intense. It did seem to be a forced drama feel, but I like it so far.

Way better than "Person's Unknown"

X2. I'll give it another go for next week. They never did show how Sean got from the cruise ship to the airliner in Maimi.

I liked "Chase" a lot better.

I heard it is already on the chopping block for cancellation. I'll bet it doesn't make it after next week.
