    Strain was a really great episode of The Event and I enjoyed watching as the story escalated. It was interesting to see Vice President Jarvis form a partnership with Sophia to save the United States from her plans. Things became very interesting when the President falls ill due to being poisoned and may die. Sean and Vicki track Sophia and find out what she has planned for the native human population. Though the show seems slow or has some forced scenes I still find the over all premis and story to be cool and entertaining. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!moreless
  • The writers on this site said this episode was a snoozefest - you have to wonder what show they were watching that they thought was this one.

    It's unfortunate, there were not many, many more episodes like this one - the show might be a shoo-in for renewal. Alas - it is not - but last nights episode had it all - suspense (will the President die; will the Vice-President take over?); deceit (take your pick - The Veep poisoning the President or Leila defying her Dad); action (everyone was running around, somewhere) and a touch of romance (Sean asking Vicky,"..why are you helping me?" - Vicky replying,"don't you know?). I think they said there were three more episodes. This is great news because there is nothing else on,on Mondays, except Chicago Code, and that might not be on for long.moreless
