At first when I saw all the hype for this show, I was afraid to watch it and when I would watch it, that I would be disappointed. I was completely wrong. Within minutes of watching the pilot, I was a bit overwhelmed by the suddenness of the action and flashbacks that were in the show but, I was able to catch on to what was going on within minutes!! It's a show that makes you think! It's stimulating, and yes if you miss a part of the show you will be lost! But, that's what makes it a great show. Never a dull moment. They've put so much detail and thought into each episode that for the first time, in a long time, I can watch a show and NOT know what to expect every episode. It seems like we've all fell into this rut when it comes to t.v. shows. There are tons of great comedy shows, tons of drama/investigation shows and too many "reality" TV shows. It's been awhile since we've had a good scifi/thriller/action show and, I believe the EVENT is it. We've all gotten to the point where we allow the television to watch us and not the other way around. I'm finally watching t.v. again! The event is surprising, it's suspenseful and has a ton of action!
The cast seemed odd to me at first (as so many good actors from different acting backgrounds are in this ) but, as the show goes on, these actors seem to be in their prime! I believe every actor and the characters that they play.
I've read a bit of negative reviews on the show and, I only hope that people give it a chance. When Lost, or the X-Files or any great scifi show started, they didn't get the best results in their first season, but, we know that they are now considered some of the best scifi shows ever made. I feel that the Event may become part of the list and like so many other shows before it, will have a long running time on the air.
