Review - The Event Season 1 Episode 10 Everything Will Change

The Event is a show where stuff happens. I know, I know, that isn't saying much, but in reality that's all The Event is, a show filled with sequences of actions, tied together somehow through nebulous connections and interactions. The characters have no clue what's going on, the audience has no clue what's going on, and it seems like the writers don't either.

While the generalities of what's going on continue from episode to episode, the specifics have little to no relevance. Sean and Leila alone have traversed across half the country, leaving destruction in their wake and yet they keep plowing forward as if nothing that happened before has any relevance.

A good part of "Everything Will Change" is dedicated to this rocket about to launch. The president and his staff sit there, worried of that it has a nuclear warhead and will strike the United States, but the audience knows that it happen. The big "reveal" is that the rocket has a satellite that sends a signal out into space, presumably to the home planet. Big freaking whoop.

Meanwhile, the Sean and Leila show goes on as they find evidence that Leila's father was an alien, except they can't connect the dots (Leila's too dumb to realize her father never aged,). What appears to be happening is that the young children of the aliens are having their eternal youth harvested, and that the substance is in limited supply.

At this point, I don't really care what happens when the show returns in February. The characters are boring, the plot is senseless, and I'm not interested in any part of the show.

Score: 7.0/10
