NBC (ended 2011)
Just read this on Huffington Post.
According to Deadline.com, there is a rumour floating around that as part of Netflix plan to host original programming, they will take on series discarded by networks. The article noted that The Event is to be the first show to do this.
Do you think this is a credible rumour and would you like to see Netflix do this?
I know that I would love to see some show I love get picked up by Netflix.
Doesn't surprise me either. If there are only 2 shows left, then chances are, they're in the can already. I doubt there will be answers.
Regarding Netflix, I've canceled my Dish subscription. Mostly because I only watched two channels, but also because I was unemployed and needed to cut back somewhere. I just got a job and have been considering a Netflix subscription mostly for their online material. Them continuing this series would clinch that decision.
Was just getting back into this show, i watched the first 6 episodes when they aired, forgot about it, then watched the newest 12 after, and then started watching them on tv....but at least their cancelling the event because they are morons and not because they want to destroy their network, unlike SYFY who are cancelling science fiction shows and replacing them with cooking, reality, and fake wrestling programs....its real sad....but if what one guy heard about netflix is true, i hope they not only pick this up, but also Stargate Universe...that was left open ended with nothing being resolved....
|Hellooo As someone who hasn't watched the show yet, I've always thought it seemed really interesting and was waiting for summer to catch up, I gotta ask.. Is it worth starting to watch, now that it's cancelled?|
I doubt it, since the season finale will probably leave too many questions un-answered which will drive you crazy.
But it's possible they saw the writing on the wall and put together something that could be either a season or series finale.
I cut the show a lot of slack in the beginning. There's so little science fiction on today, especially on network TV, so I appreciated the attempt.
And at first it seemed like it had a lot of promise, with similarities to "The 4400" mixed in with some action. Really, I had high hopes.
But some of the story lines stopped making sense.
And some of the real-world logic / physics started breaking. Not the futuristic sci fi artistic license, but regular every-day stuff. Choking in a fire one minute, then sprinting across the fields the next. Stating how the Spanish Flu could kill in minutes/hours upon infection. etc
And someone that looked like they might be an interesting character decided to just off himself out of nowhere.
To top it all off, Sophia (one of the main characters) went from interesting and complex to an insane hypocrite. She more or less says: "We are peaceful and superior. They are violent, an unforgivable trait. Therefore we must kill all 6-billion of them."
Meanwhile also blaming the humans for escalating the hostilities when it was her son that did most of the escalation.
Some of the characters I wasn't too fond of in the beginning, I've warmed up to recently. But not enough to overcome the whole Sophia and Vice President thing.
No wrap up at all for the final of The Event. All these un finished shows that don't have an ending to wrap up the series. In future I won't bother watching any new show until it has survived at least 3 seasons.
It's three years, dude. 99% that you'll forget the show. I won't bother 3 y. o. show ever.
I've recorded the Episodes to watch later. Is it worth watching and will there be a conclusion?
