Did You Know?


Moments after finding the downed airplane, the other agent tells Simon that they checked the vitals of all the passengers found outside, and they were all dead. It would have been impossible to check the vitals of almost 200 people in such a short time. See more »


President Elias Martinez: Why are we holding them? Have they committed any acts of aggression?
Blake Sterling: We're holding them because they refuse to tell us the truth. About who they really are, why they are really here, or what they really want. They have a hidden agenda, sir. I know it in my bones.

The Only Thing Worth Watching on Monday Nights
29 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Of course, aliens. Should have seen that one coming. In one episode The Event went from being a mystery show to an alien show. Fortunately we got some more information on what's going on with the plane, that old lady, and whats-his-face's girlfriend, which was the one thing I really wanted to find out and ended up being the best part of the show. We got some new characters, lost some new characters, and got more freaking' background information than needed. Lost had a lot of characters, so all the back stories were cool, but there aren't that many characters in this show, yet have of it is flashbacks. So now the main character has been arrested, we got an undercover alien hunting for hidden aliens, a plane full of mysteriously dead people and a president who just stands around and listens to people give him information. I hope this gets better, there's nothing else to watch on Mondays.
