I thought the episode was kind of interesting in that it didn't feature any of the extra-terrestrial characters.

The part I thought that was over the top was the doctor operating on Sean, outside and in the dark.

Noting my first post in this thread, I will say this series has actually gotten better as the season progressed, even as it quite bluntly introduced supernatural, alien elements. My wife is more hooked than I am (I still wish they'd lighten up a bit), but we're both still watching!

Been noticing that most recent episodes don't have flashback sequences to them.

Interesting reveal about Leila's dad.

This is still Season 1 for "The Event". The show has been on hiatus since late last year. Now it's back for March and maybe April. Hopefully the show can build on viewers otherwise it may be cancellation time. Networks tend to not put under-performing shows up during the February Nielsen sweeps.

Somehow, the episode went over my head.
I had a few glasses of wine on board, but it seemed like the flow was slow, and for me, at least, impeded understanding.

I was really excited to be drawn into a new SF series, but... it didn't.

Maybe it was me (too much wine?) or did others pick up the same vagueness and discontinuity?

Sounds like the ratings didn't fare well for it's return...4th place in it's time slot.

I'm a big fan and the previews for the upcoming episodes look great, but I'm not getting my hopes up too high that we're going to see a second season. I just hope they recognize it and we get a proper series finale that wraps everything up.

It's a shame that all these Sci-fi series that have great potential just seem to get squandered on network TV (Serenity, Flash Forward....)

Last night's episode hints that Sophia and her people are finding a place for their home planet to escape from a pending supernova. Seems that Earth is the only place for them to escape to.

Seems that Dempsey is either a member of Sophia's race who to came to Earth from an earlier time (maybe very much earlier) or is a member of yet another alien race.

Had the impression that this week's episode is the season finale, it turns out it is next week.

Tonight's episode says that Sophia's people were on Earth first. No idea why they left or how the current population of Earth came into being.

This show is headed for cult status as a series that lasted one year. Might buy the DVD.

The good thing about short lived TV series, is that you don't have to buy too many DVD boxed sets. I might get this on DVD someday too.
