This episode started with….a plane crash! Really? Seriously? We’re already comparing this show to LOST. Are they really going to make it that easy? Ok then. Let’s pick the six that will survive and return to their homes. When the main character, Sean Walker, opened the plane door and saw that they were in the desert, the show even played the sound that LOST used to play when there was a scary revelation. Alright, we will stop. It's not fair to compare The Event to LOST yet. Also, how did that guy who fell into the fire not get any burns?
(Note: At this point in this blogger’s viewing, some dumb girl came near this blogger in the library and started talking to her friend. This blogger turned up her headphones. THIS IS A LIBRARY, WOMAN. The law library. And she was disturbing this blogger’s hulu time. What if this blogger were actually trying to study law? No respect.)
We are sad that they killed the pilot’s wife. She was nice, and they had a sweet marriage. Another TV marriage bites the dust. But Sean and Leila deserve to be in such trouble for hating calamari. That stuff is good. Might we add that we guessed that Mr. Li was an infiltrator before the show revealed it? It must have been the close-up of Mr. Li’s face when another character suggested that there might be infiltrators. You’ve got to get up earlier in the morning to fool a former LOSTwatcher. Creepy ending! Love that all the people from the plane were dead. Don’t worry, we are pretty sure the pilot from Gilmore Girls isn’t dead. Imdb says he is going to be in more episodes.
We think this show improved with its second episode, taking away the annoyingly frantic confusion and actually pushing the stories in another direction. Hopefully it can stay not boring and avoid being Flashforward. We will keep watching.
