The Event (2010)
Best new show of the season
I have enjoyed the first six episodes. It's very interesting to try to figure out all the various plots and subplots, who is good and who is bad, where are the Inos from, who are they, how they do what they do, what will happen next, etc. My favorite characters are the President (Blair Underwood, a great actor since LA Law), Simon Lee, and Sophia (what is she up to?).
There is always a lot of action and a lot of mysteries. Each episode reveals some secrets but often new secrets come to light. It is a nice blend of action, mystery, and a little sci-fi.
This is not to say the show is perfect, far from it. There seem to be continuity issues and highly implausible scenarios. For example, there were scores of people who saw the plane disappear and TV cameras were rolling, how could they possibly have kept that a secret? Nevertheless, it is fun watching and then discussing possible theories on the forum about what The Event is likely to be. Can't wait to find out.
Man of the Year (2006)
Hawaiian music at end of film?
That Hawaiian song was nice, keep singing it in my head. Anyone have any info about it? Singer, name, etc? I don't think the soundtrack has been released yet.
Anyhow, enjoyed the movie most of the time, though not at all what I expected. Requires some suspension of disbelief. The part where he went on Saturday Night Live seemed really contrived. Enjoyed the cameos by real news reporters and others.
I could see someone like Jon Stewart or a comedian make a serious run at the presidency, look at Schwartzeneger. But kind of hard to believe that someone not even on the ballot in 39 states could win the presidential election, has anyone counted electoral votes to see if this is even mathematically possible?
