No, it's not just you.   But I'm gonna give it a few more episodes, for some reason I like the concept of The Big Secret and hidden agendas. smile

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

I'm liking the quality feel of the show. The acting is quite good, the writing is also good, camerawork is excellent. This feels better than FlashForward in many perspectives but I'm having doubts on how many episodes and seasons the story can hold.

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

I like it! I just hope that they won't drag out on things... like people not believing the boyfriend who was in the hospital. I don't want to wait like half a season for someone to realize that he's not lying.


And this show airs in Sweden, only 5 days after the states... I'm impressed by that smile

On public service. Amazing, indeed. 

That female agent will eventually start to believe that there may be some truth in his story, after all, he was supposed to get married!  smile   (maybe a bit overacting in that scene...)

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

This is the kind of show that should be done in Europe. 8 to 13 episodes and it-s done!
I have been saying this since Lost started springing copies> Event based shows are born with expiring dates, they don-t hold up.
There are cases where the mistery is only part of the deal, see The 4400 for that matter which deserved the 5th season it never got ... Thing is, this model of storytelling is much more suited for a feature film, on the other hand, is the easiest to hype up.

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

Yeah, this show will probably become like lost and get lots of season, since it's already been sold to so many countries... katshing!

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

This show has certainly potential and ep 2 was kinda good - not perfect. As Phuncz wrote - the quality is great. Let's see if the production value can keep up with the plot.
I agree that concentration on one man searching for his girl is not fulfilling. On the other hand we have The 4400 - or some less in this case - locked up in just another facility. But the folks from The Others who didn't get cought in 1944 are still out there and doing some weird stuff.

Right now it's totally unknown what The Event will be and who or what The Other 4400 are or what they can do. We still know only part of what is going on. If done correctly we will be entertained for a long time.

100% agreed. This is exactly what I am always concerned about with these type of shows. The first seasons are usually pretty strong, but by the second or third season, they just start stretching out the plot to the point where everything loses its touch. This is exactly how I felt about shows like Heroes and Prison Break. First seasons were some of the best television I had ever watched, but by the second/third season, I couldn't wait for the show to just end already..

All that said, so far, I am very much enjoying the show.

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

They can even skimp budget on the makeup and CGI so maybe better overall quality *cough*V*cough* !

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

Second episode was much better. More exposition, less "stuff that happened in the trailer", more fleshed out characters, less timeskips.

Speaking of the timeskips, I think this might get a little confusing eventually with trying to put each thing in chronological order.

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

Yeah, I guess they won't make a habit of the timeskipping, just the first episodes to get the story on it's rails without telling everything in advance.

What gave it away?

+ show spoiler

The fact that Dr. Weaver was talking to him in the pilot, giving him orders? Or the fact that in the same conversation he tried to convince her that this president is different and they can trust him? smile

Re: 1x02 - To Keep Us Safe

i liked one comment in imdb. gonna paste it here.

The constant jumping back and forth in time appears to be the new gimmick for crappy TV shows. This show does it to excess. It's 8 months ago, then it's 2 weeks ago, then it's 3 months ago, then it's 10 minutes ago, etc.

agreed completely. this jumping back and forth is even worse than Lost or FlashForward.

It was very doable in Lost because it jumped at the right moments and both stories were interesting and help develop the story. I have a feeling they are indeed included in The Event as a gimmick. Certainly the last two episodes got on my nerves.
