Topic: Is TE good or bad?

Somehow they have a lot of interestings things in there. Bad aliens, good aliens, other bad aliens. Even shapeshifting aliens. But somehow it's not going anywhere. Are the producers simply doing a Prison Break on the viewers and trying to keep them busy with new twists and turns as if they really had a goal but in the end they have no goal and are frantically trying to somehow keep the plot going? I hope not cause I don't like that not one bit! I want a real story which makes SENSE and not a crappy storyline which is developed from episode to episode.  roll

Re: Is TE good or bad?

i know that everyone hates me, but my theory recently is that they write shows with no end.

1st episode - everyone is so exited. writers are happy because their story got picked, actors because they have a job, and producers because they are hyped.

5th episode - WTF? WTF?
WTF?


screw it.



i really don't give a flying......

Re: Is TE good or bad?

I think you could be right.
After all if they do not even know how many episodes a show is going to have depending on the resonance then the end has to be open. TE first had 13 episodes and then they bought 9 more this means that they continually have to edit the story which greatly increases the chance of it sucking a lot. It's a huge difference wether somebody makes up a story and then tells it from beginning til end or wether a bunch of people sit there and have to invent new crap just to keep the show running.  roll

I don't hate you GodZionu.  And I agree with your thoughts.

Just look at Lost.  Started off really great with the first 2 seasons.  Then they ran out of ideas/money/whatever and it went downhill.

EDIT: Oh and from the only 2 episodes I watched, The Event is awful.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: Is TE good or bad?

Lost definitely was planned from beginning to end to atleast some detail, as there where details that were featured in the very first season that were only fully explained or linked in the final seasons. But they just weren't good at stretching out the story not too much and the final seasons were much more condensed.

Re: Is TE good or bad?

I fear TE will not end good. I fear the end will be totally crappy.
And why do we not get more clues who the old shapeshifting sack is? I wanted to know how this all fits together if it fits together at all. And I also find it strange that currently there are so many shows which all deal with aliens and hybrids and aliens mating with humans.

The Pres is also getting on my nuts. He comes across pretty arrogant and I also don't like his greasy weird hair.

Re: Is TE good or bad?

I think The Event has been pretty good so far in terms of production quality and acting, but storyline is somewhat questionable. It started off very promising, but then "the event" was pretty much explained and all the mystery surrounding these other beings was sort of just explained as "they crashed on earth, wanted to go home, but then some became evil and want to take over the planet". Doesn't really hold together very well... I'll still watch but I don't get the feeling this show will be around much longer...

Re: Is TE good or bad?

Do you think before the show ends we'll at least see one hot sex scene between Sean and the Leila? Or maybe the between the Sophia and the President or Sterling and the President? Or imagine Thomas gets captured and then he gets brutally and relentlessly buttraped by Sterling and the Prez in a totally secret underground prison without any hope of ever making it out alive. Woah! I'm thinking about something like Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Wrong Turn meets Frontiers.
That could totally save the show and catapult it right to the top!

At first they only wanted to buttrape the answers out of Thomas but then even after the alien
invasion has been prevented and all strangers including Sophia have been executed Sterling
and the Prez don't want to give up their sick, little hobby and keep coming to the secret underground basement almost daily after work. But it doesn't take long and the first tensions between Sterling and the Prez arise and they no longer want to share Thomas. The beginning of
a morbid exchange of blows beyond anything you've ever seen... a highly dramatic polit-sci-fi thriller series with a fair portion of homoeroticism.

Re: Is TE good or bad?

The Event is finally on track IMHO. It started strong - was completely lost storywise by episode 5 or so but since episode 8 or 9 it was clear that there was indeed a clear plot ahead you could look forward to. After episode 12 it's safe to say that everybody who liked the first two episodes will like the show again - no matter how you felt in between.
But I guess the long break and the weak middle episodes lost all the mystery viewers and the show won't get another season. But I bet the season/series finale will become great - fingers crossed smile

Re: Is TE good or bad?

until the last 2-3 epsiodes i hoped sophia was some kind of captain janeway and this might get voyager vs real word people in some kind of manner but the clumsy change of her attitude was somehow annoying
