The Event Show Premiere [TV Review]

I have some expectations on the Event because of all the buzz. It is an interesting story but on the complex side so I will keep this short and get back after episode two with a more in dept review.

The action is pretty good but I am not a fan of time jumps like this. It is especially frustrating in this first episode. Something is starting to happen, and switch. But I guess there is a need to establish all of the characters and all of the mysteries.

Sean is about to propose to Leila when she disappears. All good stories need a love interests and this is it. The reason she disappears is really sinister and I can’t tell you because that is a spoiler.

The President and Sofia is also interesting, but I hate those time jumps! With a vengeance. So the President is about to go public with a secret facility where Sofia is the leader of the inmates.

The great mystery is what is really going on here but NYmag has already spoiled what it is about.

The ending is very climactic but leaves you hanging for the next episode. I like but I also like to wait and see how this goes. Who knows? The Event might even be better than Lost.

If you want spoilers go to The Event [New This Fall] where I have collected a few of them including NYmag’s.


What if there was a cover-up so big that even the President was on a need-to-know basis? And what if some average guy stumbled upon the truth – a secret so powerful it could literally change the course of humanity? You think that guy would stand a chance of survival?
