The Event is a TV series that I started watching on TV but never got round to finishing. So when I was offered the chance to review the series I jumped at the chance.
The Event is one of those shows that had you on the edge of your seat like Lost or Heroes, expect The Event worked as one complete series rather than being dragged out for the networks to make as much money as possible. In the UK we often have one off series, but it doesn’t happen that often in the US. Harpers Island was a show last year that worked well (and couldn’t really be made into a second season) and The Event is no different.
I like how the show gives you short snippets of information that allows you to piece together what is going on as the story unfolds.
If you’re looking for some entertainment for a cosy winter weekend curled up on the sofa then this is the boxset for you.
The Event boxset is available now (£32.97 at Amazon).
