The Event... what did you think?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm still making up my mind about it. The airplane at the beginning... are they just trying to pull in old Lost fans? What are your thoughts?

I'll probably watch next week again at least...

It worked for me ... I'm totally hooked on this show. I'm really excited!!!

I enjoyed it!

And yes, I think they're trying to suck in us Losties. Worked for me!

It definitely sucked in this Lostie! My jaw dropped in the final few mintues. I'm sticking with this one for a while.

A mash-up of Lost and Flash Forward, both of which I loved, so I'll keep watching.

OK - we have a brand new DVR and I'm still trying to figure it out, so I didn't watch the whole thing. We don't watch much TV because we don't have time during the week, but seeing the trailers on TV for this intrigued me and I recorded it.

After seeing the ads, I was talking with a good friend. There is this one forum I go to (don't post, just read) of emergency preparedness and survival and they all there thought it is going to be a "survival"/"disaster"/"2012" kind of show. They still do, it seems. I've never seen Lost or Flash Forward, so I can't compare it to that.

I don't think it's a disaster show... I think it's a gov't conspiracy show. When I was talking to my friend before it even aired, I said, "I don't think the 'Event' is something disastrous that happens. How much you wanna bet that it's going to be 'Event' as in 'Event Horizon'?" Disappearances and all the intrigue. Then lo and behold, this airplane gets sucked into some kind of wormhole at the end. Yep... event horizon! In fact, when I watched part of it, dh saw the last few minutes and when I told him the name was "The Event" he said, "You mean, as in 'Event Horizon'?"

I could be wrong, but this probably has something to do with the US government building a particle accelerator. I find that intriguing, as we like it when science and mystery are combined. I will learn more about how to use the DVR and will be recording it. Hopefully I will find the time to watch the whole pilot before then.

I'm on the fence. I'll give it another episode and see how I feel.

I don't want to start a new show with a new baby. BUT, I did enjoy it. I think its aliens and the government working together.

I really liked it! Dh and I agree with the alien/government working together storyline.

I hated it. All the skipping around was really distracting & annoying. If it were up to me, we wouldn't ever be watching it again. Dh was completely unimpressed, but determined to give it another chance. Or he was, he's getting less & less inclined to watch it again the further we get from it.

Given how awful the ending of Lost was, a show trying to be Lost is a complete turn-off.

I do not like the skipping around its distracting and makes the story hard to follow. I think it is either people from the future or aliens working with certain parts of the government.

The timeline skipping around thing bugged me too. But that seems to be the new trend.... Lost, Flash Forward, etc did it too. And it bugged me then. When I sit down to rot my brain with some television, I don't want to have to try to remember which events happened first.
post #13 of 28
Well, I'm definitely intrigued enough to keep watching. The skipping around was a bit annoying, but maybe it'll tone down as the season goes on.

I'm thinking maybe aliens, but maybe some secret scientific project. Don't know much about the whole "event horizon" concept, but from the little I've read, I can see how that would come to people's minds.

This show is freaking me out.
post #15 of 28
Yep, aliens. You guys are good. I still wonder if the Event is event horizon.
post #16 of 28
I'm missing Lost and was thinking about watching this show until aliens were mentioned.... What can I say, I'm alone at night and some things creep me out. Maybe I could watch it with DH on weekends.

Yeah, I found the first half rather boring and kind of annoying with all these flashbacks. I really don't want another show like Lost, honestly, so if it's just nothing but titillating yet nonsensical scenarios, I'm out. But I have to admit I like the idea of aliens.

If it helps any, so far the aliens look just like people.

I was kind of hoping that when the plane disappeared, it would reappear on an alien planet. I thought THAT would have been pretty interesting, with the group of plane survivors on aother planet trying to get home.

But...no such luck. Oh well. I thought last night's episode was so-so.
