I don’t know if any one else was sucked into watching this new television series THE EVENT on NBC with all the hype and never-ending barrage of commercials promoting the show. But I sure was. And honestly? It was pretty damned good. It definitely piqued my interest and held my limited attention span immediately. I like a show you actually have to think about while watching it. No matter how ‘far fetched’ it may be. However, you will have to suspend all disbelief. Plus, I am psyched about the cast:
- Jason Ritter | Sean Walker
- Blair Underwood | President Elias Martinez
- Zeljko Ivanek | Blake Sterling
- Laura Innes | Sophia Maguire
- Sarah Roemer | Leila Buchanan
- Ian Anthony Dale | Simon Lee
- Scott Patterson | Michael Buchanan
- Bill Smitrovich | Raymond Jarvis
- Lisa Vidal | Christina Martinez
- Taylor Cole | Vicky Roberts
When the series premiere ended I was left with baited breath. I am already letting my imagination run wild and wondering what’s going to happen next! And if next week’s episode is half as interesting as the premiere was? I can certainly see myself possibly becoming addicted to this new series.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
The Event is an emotional, high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter, “The Class”), an everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his would-be fiance Leila (Sarah Roemer, “Disturbia”), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history.
Sean’s quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including newly elected U.S. President Elias Martinez (Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, “In Treatment”); Sophia Maguire (Emmy Award nominee Laura Innes, “ER”), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Leila’s shadowy father (Scott Patterson, “Gilmore Girls”). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.
