The Event Convolution Alert: It's Doubtful 'Everything Will Change'

30 November 2010 7:50 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Sometimes, it's nice for TV to carry a certain level of predictability -- because at least that means it's rooted in some discernible trajectory or consistent characterization or something. Not The Event though! Sure, there are times when, say, you could predict Thomas choking when he pulls a gun on his mother, but that's less a character-based level of predictability, and more a we-can't-kill-Laura Innes'-character level of predictability. The former leaves you nicely pleased with your own cleverness; the latter leaves you in a bloodied heap on your couch. »

The Event: NBC Plans Relaunch; Will It Be Saved or Cancelled?

29 November 2010 3:30 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Tonight marks the last episode of The Event for 2010. NBC plans to relaunch the series in three months, on February 28th, after letting their new series The Cape have the timeslot. Is it a risky move? Not really. Ultimately, they don't have much choice.

The Event follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), a young man who's investigating the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend. He slowly begins to uncover the biggest cover-up in the history of the United States. Others in the cast include Sarah Roemer, Laura Innes, Ian Anthony Dale, Scott Patterson, Clifton Collins Jr., Taylor Cole, Lisa Vidal, Bill Smitrovich, Zeljko Ivanek, and Blair Underwood.

The series debuted in September to decent ratings with a 3.6 in the 18-49 demo and 10.88 million total viewers. That's a healthy sampling but, considering all of the promotion that NBC put behind it, the programmers were »

The Event Season 1 Episode 9 Review & Recap: Your World to Take - Danger in Numbers or '1'

23 November 2010 5:51 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

“Danger in numbers” would be one way to describe latest episode of The Event, “Your World to Take.” Another would simply be “1,” as in the number that matters for who’s in charge. Or “1” as in the chance Thomas (Clifton Collins Jr.) wastes in regaining control since Sophia’s (Laura Innes) release; or finally, “1” as the number of bullets Sophia put in a gun that she gives to Thomas’ girlfriend, Isabelle (Necar Zadegan). We’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s back up a bit. After texting a digital beacon “1121994,” a sleeper swarm congregated to the Washington D.C. area to confirm Sophia’s freedom and return as the leader of this operation. There were hundreds, in attendance, or possibly a thousand or two. The fact is, there’s a lot more of them than originally thought. We could have assumed counting the detainees that there was 100 total maximum. But »

'The Event' - I Know Who You Are

17 November 2010 6:38 AM, PST | GeekNation.com | See recent GeekNation news »

This article may contain spoilers. With aliens, a real life dollhouse with living dolls and wormholes, "The Event" has entered the Twilight Zone. When lovers Sean Walker (Jason Ritter) and Leila Buchanan (Sarah Roemer) heard that there were aliens walking amongst us, they were incredulous to the point of flat-out disbelief. Looking through their lens, it sounded impossible. Yet, in the world of "The Event," all bets are off and anything goes. There are aliens amongst us. They may look like us and are nearly identical in DNA, but they are still not of this Earth. With the masterful escape of Sophia (Laura Innes), aided by Thomas (Clifton Collins, Jr.), they join the other Ebe's (extraterrestrial biological entities) hiding in plain sight. The only hiccup in their escape plan was Simon's »

The Event Season 1 Episode 7 Recap: I Know Who You Are

9 November 2010 1:35 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Monday night featured another night of revelations, deceit, and confusion on The Event. A mole is discovered in Blake’s (Zeljko Ivanek) special ops group but Simon (Ian Anthony Dale) has yet to be identified. The relationship between Sophia (Laura Innes) and Thomas (Clifton Collins Jr.) is revealed as well as their plans for the near future. Lastly Sean (Jason Ritter) and Leila (Sara Roemer) get closer to finding out what happened to Michael and Samantha. The flashback of the last night’s episode dove into Blake Sterling’s past. Fourteen years ago while in Langley, Virginia, Blake was in a serious relationship with a woman who was in fact a Russian intelligence spy. Blake confronted her, telling her that it didn’t matter and they can run off together despite whatever it was that brought them together in the first place. But she ran, proving the accusations to be »

Laura Innes on The Event's Secrets and Children's Hospital

8 November 2010 12:50 PM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

A third of the way through The Event's first season on NBC, viewers are still frustratingly in the dark about "the event," and also the mysteries being contained by key characters like Sophia Maguire. Laura Innes plays Sophia, a charismatic leader who has gone to great lengths to protect her "people" while shielding the public from secret knowledge, an effort that has kept her followers locked up for 66 years. And finally in tonight's episode, "I Know Who You Are," viewers will get (some) answers. »

'The Event': Laura Innes discusses Sophia's motivation

8 November 2010 | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"The Event" returns to NBC Monday (Nov. 8) with an episode that, among other things will delve a lot deeper into the relationship between extraterrestrials Sophia (Laura Innes) and Thomas (Clifton Collins Jr.).

To put it succinctly, it's complicated. Innes says that even though her character and Thomas may want the same thing, they go about it in very different ways.

"I think she's completely opposed to his methods, because they're basically -- you know, he's a terrorist and he wants to harm and abuse innocent people," Innes says. "Her first choice would be a diplomatic, peaceful resolution to a conflict. Now if that's not possible, then she's willing to take the next step, but I think that she will do almost anything to avoid harming [anyone] -- especially harming people who are innocent."

Which is not to say she'll shy away from a tough decision. Now that Sophia is out in the world, »

The Event Season 1 Episode 6: Loyalty

26 October 2010 2:15 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

As the name of The Event's sixth episode suggests, last night’s theme was loyalty: Sean’s loyalty to Leila and especially, Agent Simon Lee’s (Ian Anthony Dale) loyalty to Sophia (Laura Innes) and his people. Sean (Jason Ritter) brings Leila (Sarah Roemer) up to speed and delivers the bad news about her mother’s murder and sister, Samantha’s (Anna Clark) kidnapping. While Collier (Heather McComb) is questioning Clark (D.B. Sweeney), Leila bursts in and asks about her sister but only gets more questions about her father (Scott Patterson). Unable to let this go, Leila asks Sean steal Collier’s SUV so that they can look for clues at her house that may lead to Samantha. Back in Washington D.C., Simon helps Sophia shake a radioactive bio-tracking device that was planted in her food before she was set free. The aide between Blake and Simon notices »

'The Event' - Casualties Of War

21 October 2010 6:33 AM, PDT | GeekNation.com | See recent GeekNation news »

This review may contain spoilers. I had a tough time reviewing this week's episode of "The Event." As the show is beginning to find the ground it needs to tell the story set up in the pilot, I was having a difficult time finding a talking point. But if the show can focus the story in the same manner it did this week, the cohesion that has been missing may find its way in. We start out with the plane survivors. The Cdc is rushing to cure them of what appears to be a disease inflicted by Thomas (Clifton Collins Jr.), the person Sophia (Laura Innes) put in charge to watch over the people that escaped being detained in the crash of their ship. The episode was really about a standoff between Thomas and President Martinez (Blair Underwood) and the lengths one goes to achieve what they need »

More Yvonne Strahovski in her underwear coming as "Chuck" gets a full season

20 October 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

If you are a gay lady and watch Chuck you know that one of the show’s many, many endearing qualities is its ability to get its super-sexy star Yvonne Strahovski in her underwear and/or a bikini in almost every episode. If you are a gay lady who does not watch Chuck, um, you read what I just typed, right? Perhaps you’d like a visual aid.

And that was all just from one episode – one. So now the news I’m about to share will be even more exciting, Chuck has been picked up by NBC for a full season order meaning everyone can put down the Subway sandwiches and just enjoy the show. The network ordered 11 additional episodes, bringing the full season to 24 – that’s two more than its usual 22-episode order. Guess someone will have to find more lacy underthings to wear.

NBC has been in a pick-up frenzy this week. »

The Event Season 1 Episode 5: Casualties of War

19 October 2010 4:22 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The Event left us last week with the victims of Avias 514 bleeding and hemorrhaging at the bio quarantine facility, their systems shutting down. The symptoms are not known to be viral or bacterial and are guessed to be foreign or extraterrestrial. Thomas (Clifton Collins Jr.) has somehow inflicted the pain by remote control and threatens President Elias Martinez (Blair Underwood) to kill them all if Sophia (Laura Innes) and the detainees are not released to him. If his demands are met, an antidote will be given to reverse the illness. Last night, Martinez calls Thomas’ bluff and raises the bet by threatening if the antidote is not delivered, then he will terminate the detainees, putting the Avias 514 victims in further harm. Back in Snyder, Texas, Leila (Sarah Roemer) continues to try and reach Sean (Jason Ritter) with little success. Sean wisely buys a car charger for his phone finally »

The peacock network has announced that they are ordering nine more episodes of The Event. Loyal fans of the series may be overjoyed but, it's important to look at the news in context with the ratings.

The Event follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter)who's investigating the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend. He slowly begins to uncover the biggest cover-up in the country's history. Others in the cast include Sarah Roemer, Laura Innes, Ian Anthony Dale, Scott Patterson, Clifton Collins Jr., Taylor Cole, Lisa Vidal, Bill Smitrovich, Zeljko Ivanek, and Blair Underwood.

On September 20th, the freshman series had a positive debut with a 3.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.88 million viewers. Unfortunately, viewership didn't stay at that level for subsequent episodes and the show's numbers have been declining each week. Last week's episode fell all the way to a 2.2 demo rating and »

NBC Orders Full Seasons of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced

18 October 2010 5:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hot on the heels of the full season upgrade for Chuck, NBC announced today via press release that they have now ordered full seasons for three of their newest TV series. The hour-long drama The Event, the half-hour comedy Outsourced and the legal drama spin-off Law & Order: Los Angeles all had their stay on NBC extended for at least one full season. Network president Angela Bromstad said, ““We are pleased with the quality of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced, and feel they are an important part of helping to re-build our schedule and our studio pipeline. We believe in these new series and the creative auspices behind them.” Honestly, I feel almost the exact opposite way. The Event is a gimmick without substance and Outsourced is one of the worst comedy series I’ve ever seen . However, I’m rather indifferent on Law & Order: Los Angeles. You »
