The Event
« on: September 29, 2010, 03:12:02 PM »
i think i like this show.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I watched the first episode. Fixing to go watch the 2nd in a while.

I thought the whole time the plane was coming towards them that the scene was done wrong. All the wind and the shaking seemed more like they were behind the thing when it was taking off.

And then at the end it was..... "OH! That is why all the wind and shaking".  :shock:

I watched the first episode but haven't finished the second, yet.  I was a bit worried when they started jumping around in time.  It's why I quit watching "Lost".  But they don't seem to stay there for long periods of time (like entire episodes) and the story keeps moving, so I'm gonna keep with it.  I've liked it so far!

Just finished both episodes.    Planes and time travel?   I think I might like this show.   (I liked Lost a lot, brother.)

Like it! Even if it is a knock off of Lost.

Also, I can admit it, I love Hawaii 5-0. It has the cheesy element, done much better than the original. And I can't wait for the music. I remember dancing to it with my cousin when we were was 11. Turns out that music is as imprinted in my brain as the Coke brand. Who knew? Well, I guess the producers did. Brilliant marketing, a bit manipulative, but you gotta hand it to them. NeuroMarketing, an insidious but fascinating trend.

Just as long as the show keeps you guessing where you can not figure out what is going to happen next, it should sell.   How many seasons before they tell us what the event is?

My wife started watching it with me last night and said, what is this Lost?   She didn't like it, too scattered, she said.

the first episode jumped a lot.  by the 3rd, it smoothed out and was easier to follow.  the farther it goes the more i like it, but i was always a sucker for the scifi stuff.

They said it's "out there" I guess it still is.

Ok, just talked the wife into watching it tonight when it comes on in 5 minutes.  I had to promise her that I would turn it if polar bears came out.  :roll:  One more time.
