What if there was a cover-up so big that even the President was on a need-to-know basis? And what if some average guy stumbled upon the truth—a secret so powerful it could literally change the course of humanity? You think that guy would stand a chance of survival? From Nick Wauters (Eureka) and Steve Stark (Medium) comes a suspense-filled journey where the answers only lead to bigger questions. What will you believe?

Anyone who watch this and follow the action will be gripped - to quote Baldrick in blackadder "It has more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing". Wonderful subplots that seem to lead you away then suddenly connect with the main story. The style takes a bit of getting used to but loved how the producers use flash backs to explain what is happening - the tv series ended without the finale which is due for transmission soon - cant wait. Not great sci-fi but gripping murder mystery. Sell your house, liquidiate your assets whatever you need to do buy this when it comes out. Then order a huuuuge pizza lock the door, switch your mobile off and enjoy !!

The Event was/is a great conspiracy thriller series. I can't believe it was cancelled just as it was getting good. Apparently they are trying to get it taken on by another network and I hope they do as it has a lot of potential. There were so many interesting storylines that could have been developed more if the series had time to grow and develop. Instead it turned into a taster pointing to lots of alternate world history threads and secrets within secrets. A book just out that I just read is along the same lines and much more satisfying as in a book there is more time to develop conspiracy concepts so for anyone who will be missing weekly Event fix try this Tilly Greenway and the Secrets of the Ancient Keys, Book One - Watchers. It's especially relevant for anyone who really enjoyed the Dempsey storyline. I won't say anymore as don't want to give anything away!!

Very surprised that this show was axed after 1 season. Much more entertaining than Lost, Heroes etc.

The premise was unusual and every episode proved to be engaging.

Non Event ? Well if you buy a book and the ending is torn out I'd expect you to be furious & frustrated.Then to go and exchange your book only to find they are all like that ......? Well this is the dvd version of that book.So lets teach these idiots [who dont care about your enjoyment]a lesson, and dont buy this ! They are ripping out the pages of these great storys because of money.So dont give them any ! Also any future releases - be patient and wait till you know there is a conclusion before you buy season 1 by CBS or FOX of anything they release.Make them wait and they will have to re-think treating us all this way.

It looks like season 2 may not be made as NBC have cancelled, the producers are looking elsewhere. Like Flash Forward, you may get the cliff hanger ending and be left hanging.

The series has a slow start, but picks up speed and gets to some more interesting stuff about halfway through. The second half is generally excellent if you're prepared to suspend a little disbelief. All in all it's quite watchable and is an interesting mix of Mcarthy era paranoia, mother son relationship issues, origins of intelligent life, a super secret ancient organisation and genocide.

It's actually pretty light on special effects or grand scenes and seemed to me at times to be more like 24 than anything SciFi I've watched recently. Co-incidentally, it also has the most annoying blonde since Bauers daughter :-)

Worth the money provided that you're prepared for the lack of season 2...

The Event had a really promising start. And then it all went downhill. There are many reasons why this should have been a great series - government conspiracies, aliens and action - but there's that little something missing (some might say "acting talents" and in some cases I'd have to agree).

The main story, in short, revolves around a group of humanlike aliens who crash-landed in Alaska over 60 years ago. Some were captured by the US Government while some escaped and hid among us. As the show begins it seems like They have a plan - and We have to stop them.

The story is told from many different viewpoints: software engineer Sean Walker (Jason Ritter) who is looking for his kidnapped girlfriend Leila Buchanan (Sarah Roemer), alien leader Sophia (Laura Innes) and US President Elias Martinez (Blair Underwood), just to name a few.

In general, multiple storylines that eventually come together are really gripping. The problem with The Event is that it starts out strong but then seems to try a bit too hard to impress and is tapped by its own cleverness. The show soon loses most of its charm.

There are some interesting twists and turns but not enough to truly keep me at the edge of my seat. The most interesting character is Simon Lee (Ian Anthony Dale) who is one of Them but has gradually become one of Us. This storyline is the main reason why I watched the whole series and didn't give up halfway through.

I assume that Sean and Leila were supposed to be the romantic epicenter of the story but that's not working at all. There's more chemistry between Sean and kidnapper-assassin Vicky (Taylor Cole), who I was actually rooting for.

All in all, it's an OK show. As it was cancelled, there's a "major" cliffhanger left unsolved but for many reasons (some mentioned above), I don't care all that much.

I loved this show and I bought the DVD when it was cheap but unfortunately it then got cancelled so It feels not worth it unless you ignore the last 10 minutes. It's one of those things where if they had stopped it 10 minutes before it ended it would have been an ending but instead they leave a huge cliffhanger.

I enjoy the acting and the idea's for it but the fact that it got cancelled makes it just feel.. pointless. A very enjoyable watch though if you're willing to ignore that fact!
