Fall TV Review: THE EVENT

A for AWESOME! Not since the pilot of LOST have I been so entertained with a first episode. Great production values and an immensely appealing lead in Jason Ritter springboard this new mystery thriller. To be careful though, pilots can never be true triggers to the success or quality of a show, and it will be the next few weeks that will either seal the deal or send this one to the graveyard (ahem, FLASH FORWARD). But rich locales in Hawaii and the Antarctic (?), plus snazzy drama on planes and cruise ships, and perhaps an alien hook? - make THE EVENT a show I will be definitely be tracking. A+

I liked the show generally but all that jumping around in time left me dizzy. Yeah, Lost did that too, but not every 5 minutes.
