The Event: A Review
So with the Lost series all wrapped up, we viewers of the non-predictable have moved over to a new TV series called The Event on NBC. I really do think that is why some of us are drawn to weird shows like this; so many shows are predictable. We want to be entertained and carried along by the story, not figure it out within the first 5 minutes.
The Event is clearly made in the same style as Lost; it even has the mysterious "Others" but in this case the "Others" are a group of aliens that crash landed on Earth in 1944. The U.S. government had been covering up the find, even to the various presidents that have come and gone, but now the current president (no, not Obama)Elias Martinez played by Blair Underwood has full knowledge of The Event that happened in 1944.
So, far the episodes are building the plot line and filling in the blanks of the crash and what has happened since then. There are many flashbacks. We find out that half of the crash survivors escaped and have been living among the general human population (yet they never age). Whereas the other half were unable to escape and have been held in a secret base in Alaska for the past 60+ years.
The other plot line is about a MIT computer wiz and his fiance who became wrapped up in The Event after the woman was abducted from a cruise ship they were on. When the man returned to the ship after a day of scuba diving, he finds his fiance is gone and the cruise director claiming there is no record of him or his fiance being on the cruise. The rest of this plot line so far has been about this man trying to find his missing fiance. This plot line intersects with the other in various ways.
I'm liking the show so far and hope it continues. As for how this may fit theologically or a theological review of it, it is too soon to say.
