  • Editorial Reviews

    Suspenseful, mysterious and action-packed, The Event is “a Lost meets 24 thrill-ride” (OK! Magazine). When everyman Sean Walker goes looking for his missing girlfriend, he stumbles upon a massive government conspiracy that is bigger than the President himself. Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Blair Underwood (The New Adventures of Old Christine) and Laura Innes (ER) star in this epic series from the executive producer of 24. With “great effects and stunning twists” (The Oakland Tribune), The Event is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! This five-disc set includes all 22 thrilling episodes, presented in 5.1 surround sound, plus hours of explosive bonus features you won’t see anywhere else.

    A coworker once mentioned I may be interested in "The Event" so I watched a couple episodes online on the nbc.com web site.

    Whoa. How come I didn't hear about these guys when the show was going strong! Purchased the set and after the last espisode my family was on the edge of their seats asking for season 2!

    Yeah, I nearly had a riot on my hands when I told them it was canceled. One of my kids asked me why all the great shows were being canceled after the first season. The Dresden Files was another we were aching for a second season.

    There are so many plots and subplots in "The Event" which haven't been resolved. I hear stories that another may come in and take over it's production. Sci Fi, Netflix, other's have been mentioned. But nobody has confirmed.

    Hopefully we won't be left here waiting for "The Event" Second season. It's definitely a show that has much more to offer.

    I watched most of this series on tv then got the dvd to rewatch it and catch up on the pieces I missed.

    It's an excellent series, suspense and sci fi mixed well together in a tale that spans the globe and the years. And if it has one strength to shine above all the others for me, its the characterizations. The show goes to great lengths to show the mighty falling at every step of the way. The president, young and idealistic, slowly being broken down and turned into a paranoid and desperate man who will do anything to protect his country. The leader of the aliens, a woman who starts off near saintly, torn apart by events including the death of her son and the unexpected approaching destruction of her race, turning into a mass murderer. Yet even as it brings the mighty down it raises the humble, with an assassin being slowly transformed into a hero, a paranoic head of security being shown as paranoid for a reason and even learning to trust. The acting is superb.

    There are however two weaknesses for me. The first is the unecessary way the plot jumps through time periods.I don't mind the odd flash back, but at the beginning the show is all flashbacks, and I found myself constantly being jerked out of my comfort zone as I tried to work out where and when I was. It interrupts the flow of the story.

    The second are some strange plot hole issues. (Warning some spoilers ahead). First the pilot of the plane. Since any plane and any pilot would do why would the bad guys kidnap the daughter's of an alien on Earth to do it, and in so doing create a mess for themselves? It seems contrived and unecessarily complicated, though of course if it hadn't happened, the story's main character and plot couldn't happen.

    The 2 stars may be misleading. They consider this to be the "complete series". In reality, this is just Season 1. The series was cancelled. The "series" is incomplete. Therefore, 2 stars. It is one thing if the series was a collection of individual adventures or self-contained stories. But, this is one continuing storyline and such programs DEMAND an ending.

    As to the story, it is a good premise and holds your interest; at least mine. One of the problems may have been all of the character backstories were handled in flashbacks. So, some may have found it a little confusing. Hence, the low ratings that caused the cancellation.

    Now, there is scuttlebutt that the series is to be concluded on the SyFy channel as a mini-series. If that remains true, then wait until the actual series IS complete before buying. Otherwise, despite the good storyline, I don't think it is worth the investment.

    For those who've seen many of the other hit shows (I hate to mention it but Lost being one of them...)will be getting a fresh new concept in that this show is as contemporary as things can get...I myself am very intrigued in the way the underlying plot ties into real-world conspiracy and extraterrestrial questions. From the Pilot to every episode released each week the suspense and edge-of-your-seat tension continues to have you glued to the television set waiting for more to be answered. The continuity of the plot is masterful in what I can only describe is something like Christopher Nolan's movie Inception or how the movie Vantage Point cleverly sequenced each cut to finally reveal the truth. The flashbacks and snippets of each character are revealed more and more through brief yet significant cuts. The cast and acting is superb in my opinion. For those who go in wanting to see a more "Lost" like plot should stray away as this is a totally different genre. Too many viewers complain that the cuts are confusing and that they don't reveal enough but this show wouldn't be as original and intriguing if every flashback gave you 100% of what each character was about. Each flashback lasts about a minute or so and does just enough to provide you with another small piece of what The Event is all about without being so info-packed to confuse even the most close-minded viewers. Whats the point of watching the show if the creator gave you the beginning, middle, and end all at once? Don't just take my word for it, go and watch it yourself and see how each episode takes you on a thrill-ride that you wish will never end. I give The Event a 5 out of 5 so far...the best Sci-Fi/Conspiracy Theory show out today!Read more ›

    The Event on Blu-ray
    I am confused by the posts. Some says that The Event has no Season 2.
    Some other says that there are only 2 seasons.
    We are in France, it has been aired recently, and of course I NEED to know the rest of the story, I was going to order season 2..
    Thanks
