The Event: Season 1 Episode 22 - Arrival

Hello Eventers!  Well, it's over...we think.  Not a bad way to go out though, right?  Yes, there is a chance that the show may be renewed by some other venue but for now we have to assume that this was the last hour of The Event we will see.  They definitely set up for a very interesting season 2.  And, the final line of the episode!  NIIIICE.   We pretty much knew the result but the way they delivered it DID surprise me even though I said it wouldn't!  I even laughed as the STARK Productions logo hit the screen.  Good stuff.  Anyway, we'll get to do one last entertaining recap where ZUCKERGUY becomes the star attraction for a bit!

Before we dive in, HAPPY LOST FINALE ANNIVERSARY!  For all of you LOSTIES that transported over with me to the new blog, please go stop in for a visit at our old stomping grounds.  I did a little reminiscing and looking towards the future in the Anniversary LOST Blog Post.  Around these parts, we did some looking forward to the future in last week's VACANT recap, but perhaps we'll revisit at the end of this blog too.

For now, let's revisit The Event AT LEAST one more time.

The Event: Season 1 Episode 21 - The Beginning of the End (discussion + Preview of next season TV shows)

Hello Eventers!  Yes, as previously promised, I was not home in time last night to watch The Event yet.  So, I apologize, but there will not be a recap this week.  I hope to watch later today and then share my thoughts in the comments here.  And I encourage you all to discuss your observations from the episode as well.  BUT, I still have some announcements to make about The Event as well as upcoming Fall TV shows with blogging potential.  So if you're intrigued by that then please click on to continue reading.  And please share your thoughts on this episode to make up for my slacking!   Thanks everyone for your understanding!

The Event: Season 1 Episode 20 - One Will Live, One Will Die

Hello Eventers!  We're closing in on the end of the season/series and it's a non-stop suspense ride.  They've dropped all sense of a mythology and it is just an all out war of aliens vs. humans.  And there is tons of manipulation to go around too.  I won't lie, most of this stuff we could see coming a mile away, but it was still fun to watch it unfold!  I'll do my best to capture the moments in the recap.  One disclaimer before we continue.  I am going to be out of town next Monday, so there is a chance I won't get to The Event recap.  But, if I don't get to it, I'll still post a blog post in case people would like to discuss it.  I'll eventually add my comments as well once I finally watch it.  I know, the penultimate episode and everything but hey!  Sometimes life gets in the way, right?   But that's not this week, so let's get on with the recap!

Fringe: Season 3 Episode 22 - The Day We Died

WOW!!!!  Whaaaaaat???!!  Awesome!!!  Those were pretty much my reactions at the end of the Fringe season 3 finale last night.  What a fantastic, perfect and crazy way to end such a fantastic, perfect and crazy season.  A lot of the ideas we had been throwing around on this blog did, in fact, happen.  But, the way they went about it is what's so shocking and awesome!   And it has left us with questions to ponder all summer.  Everyone reading this recap right now, force someone you know to watch seasons 1-3 of Fringe this summer.  If they have any sense about them, they'll realize that they have been missing out on some awesome stuff!  I had been thinking it all season but now I can say with full confidence, THIS SHOW is the true heir to LOST!  The finale just proved it.  WOW!!  Fringe, you've truly earned my use of the sacred WOW!  Let's get into this recap folks.   I'm not even sure how I'm going to go about that just yet.  But I'm sure I'll figure it out!

The Event: Season 1 Episode 19 - Us or Them

Hello Eventers!  Welcome back to another recap of The Event.  I had indicated last week that the show was finally begging me to take it seriously, and I was on board once again this week!  Sure, there will be plenty of things to laugh at along the way but they did a good job keeping the suspense going.  This really wasn't an episode where there is much to analyze at length as it was just one thrill ride from start to finish.  It was almost an episode of 24 minus the ticking clock and Jack Bauer (who was off taking care of Mr. Bin Laden over the weekend according to Twitter.  If that doesn't get you people to sign up, what will!?).  Let's just jump right into things, shall we?
