An Interview with Blair Underwood and Virginia Madsen (Video)

Photo by Mike Ansell/NBC

After long very long wait, The Event returned last week for the second half of season one. We spoke with series' star Blair Underwood and newest cast member Virginia Madsen about the show and life beyond earth.

Fans of the show may have noticed a few changes — first and foremost no more flashbacks. Blair talked about the shift in style noting, "A lot of viewers felt that it was hard to follow and complicated."

Madsen, a fan of the show before joining the cast, interjected, "I liked that part." But Underwood explained that the use of flashbacks from here on in will be minimal and that the story will now be told in a more linear fashion.

But one thing about the show that will not change is the constant twists and turns in the plot. Both actors admitted that they like to see the

It’s back. I’m talking about ‘The Event,” the second half of its first season, to be exact. There are two episodes to recap, so let’s jump right in.

The first hour, “And Then There Were More”, picks up pretty much where the last episode (remember that?) left off: Thomas, the alien who has rebelled against his mother Sophia, has sent a message to his home planet.

'The Event': Was it worth the three-month wait for you?

The return of "The Event" to NBC Monday night was billed as a relaunch of the series, with the implication that the two-hour episode could bring some new viewers in while keeping the hook in for those who have been with the show since the fall.

But if you were just coming to the show, I hope you paid very close attention to the "previously on" -- because if you weren't already up to speed on much of what was happening, it's hard to see these two episodes making a ton of sense. (Perhaps this will help you.) Heck, even as someone who watched all the fall episodes and wrote about most of them, I found myself going back to old notes more than once.

On the upside, "The Event" did move things forward on several fronts -- most notably in revealing Thomas' plan -- in these episodes. Had "And

The Event Returns: What Did You Think?

  • TVfanatic
The two hour return of The Event brought us right into the thick of Thomas' plan and answered many questions we were left with from the winter finale. 

In the first couple minutes of "And Then There Were More," we learned that the signal Thomas sent out was to inform his people that they were preparing for their arrival.

Blake is not an idiot and quickly realized that this meant Thomas planned the arrival of their kind as a form of attack on our world. Therefore, he volunteered to oversee the questioning of the prisoners.

A part of me really would love to hate Blake, I would definitely want a man like him in our Presidential cabinet. Blake has proved time and time again that he is as loyal as they come. A true patriot.

The second hour of The Event, "Inostranka," mainly focused on Blake's and Thomas' visit to the prison facility.

The Event producer Jeffrey Reiner has promised that fans will be satisfied by future episodes. In an official NBC interview, he claimed that the series will "pay off all [of its] disparate stories" when it returns after a three-month hiatus. "It's really coming to a boiling point," he claimed.

"Each side is coming to these definitive moments where they're going to have to make these huge decisions."

News: Next Gh Tragedy, Ellen Dolan, Mekhi Phifer, Patrick Gibbons

Scoop on the Next General Hospital Tragedy

ABC's General Hospital will kick off the new year by sending its young ones — ranging in age from tots to teenagers — on a Christmas vacation bus trip to snow country. That bus is forced to take an unplanned route due to weather trouble and will skid on black ice and flip over during the December 29 cliffhanger. When the show returns January 3, the bus will plummet down a steep ravine, thanks to some cool CGI tricks.

Says executive producer Jill Farren Phelps. "There will be death. In fact, two people die — one immediately and one later on as a result of an injury."

Mekhi Phifer Set As Lead On Torchwood

Phifer is set to star opposite John Barrowman and Eve Myles in the upcoming fourth season of sci-fi drama.
