About The Event

The Event burst onto the small screen in 2010, promising to be the next big thing in sci-fi television. The show follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter) as he tries to uncover the truth behind a mysterious event that occurred on a cruise ship. Along the way, he encounters a group of aliens who have been living among us for years, a government conspiracy to cover up their existence, and a president (Blair Underwood) who may or may not be involved in the whole thing.

Despite a promising start, The Event struggled to find its footing and was ultimately cancelled after just one season. Critics praised the show's ambition and the performances of its cast, but criticized its convoluted plot and confusing storytelling. The show's creators, however, defended their approach, saying that they wanted to create a show that would keep viewers guessing and engaged.

While The Event may not have lived up to its initial hype, it remains a fascinating artifact of a time when network television was still willing to take risks on ambitious, high-concept shows. And who knows? Maybe someday we'll get a second season and finally find out what the heck was going on.
