NBC's The Event

Anyone check this out? I watched it on Hulu and it has a LOST feel to it....

I was ready to turn it off because I was clueless what was going on in the first half hour, but the second half was ok. I'm not sure if it's going to be good yet but it's worth a shot. It feels more like Flash Forward than Lost.

Being clueless in the first 20 minutes of the first episode of the first season of a series is perfectly fine in my book. It's like leaving the theater because the first three minutes of a movie didn't follow a linear narrative. Hell, I'd be fine with being confused for a few full episodes if it serves to make the show better in the long run. I'm a patient man; I don't mind waiting a while for answers.

You'd think people would have learned from Lost and Flashforward not to expect every question to be answered in less than 40 minutes. :-b

Agreed.

The non-linear timeline didn't seem to have any logic behind it. They seemed to be jumping around for the sake of making it mysterious. I'll stick around with it for a few weeks but it definitely needs to get better.

They may as well have named the president Obama and the base they're closing down Gitmo ... it would have been less subtle.

And can't they get footage of a real plane and helicopter flying? Those looked so cheesy.

But I'll watch it till I can't stand it.

Weak
Sauce

Flashbacks from Lost
The name panel dealy from 24
And apparently super powers from Heroes

It's like an amalgamation of all the shows that just went off the air.
With that horror movie guy.
Oh, and a Blaxican president (when is TV going to give us an Asian president???)

It was better than the premier, certainly... but it still seems mostly unoriginal and cliche. :-[
