  • I have a feeling show writers are 10 yr old kids. Some of the things are quite inexplicable. You watch the entire episode and it leaves you exactly where it started.moreless

    The two kids entrusted with the job to save the world let go of the virus girl so easily. They had police all around, they could have raise a shout or something even simpler to stop her. But instead they go behind her quietly in a deserted car park. Did they not know someone would come to pick her up. And Sophia sends a car with one man only? I mean for someone carrying that important virus, a whole bunch of crooks must have come at least.



    The Director got fired from his job, and don't know what he was thinking. If he had the proof, he could have contacted Chief Justice and get the PM removed or questioned. No, he just goes, talks and resigns. Over. This girl Leila is now more irritating than any one else. She screams more than she talks. Her lines are so bad and her expression even worse, always the same look. It's not that the show did not had potential. It had a couple of decent actors, the storyline is good, but the writers and the Director are messing it up big time. The story needed to move faster, each episode something needed to happen. Right now, it all seems stuck and I have a bad feeling the season finale will be another big disappointment.moreless

    Us or Them was a good episode of The Event and I enjoyed watching as the Vice President dealt with Director Sterling, Simon escapes with the help of Michael, and Leila suffers a tragic loss and faces an uncertain future. It was fun to watch all of the drama and intrigue unfold. There was a lot of character and plot development in this episode. Sean and Vicki track the courier who has the lung tissue from a victim of the Spanish Flu. I thought it was interesting how Vicki reacted when Seans life was in danger. I look forward to watching the next episode to find out what happens next on The Event!!!!moreless

    • Sophia: Do you know what scares me the most?
      Michael: No, what?
      Sophia: The letting go... of who I used to be. I knew that it would be painful to follow through on Thomas' plan, that in order to make room for our people here, to ensure their survival, I would have to… sacrifice some of my principals.
      Michael: Well, you've taken a huge burden on your shoulders, Sophia.
      Sophia: But that doesn't make what needs to happen next any easier.

    • Michael: Now I have to go.
      Leila: When I was a kid, I was playing with the boys across the street, and they killed a bird. I told you what happened, and you said we were the strongest and smartest things on the planet, so we had a responsibility to protect the smaller, weaker things, because if we didn't do it, that no one else would. That it was the right thing to do. I don't know if you remember that, but I do. And I'm looking at you, and I don't recognize that person anymore.
