The Event [NBC, Mondays, 9/8C] is a smart, complex and thoroughly entertaining new series. The premiere is easily the best pilot of the season. With a cast of dozens [if you include guest stars], this is a series that can provide at least a couple characters with whom everyone in the audience can identify, while the complexity of the premiere episode turns out to be much easier to follow than expected – despite the way it plays with various sequences in the past and present.
Of all the TV premieres to hit Comic-Con 2010, The Event is the one that had the most – and the best – buzz! Now NBC is offering five lucky cities [or towns] the chance to host an exclusive screening of the show’s epic pilot episode by simply demanding it on Eventful.com.
