Proving that viewers haven’t yet had nearly enough of supernatural thrillers, NBC’s new series The Event pulled in nearly 11 million viewers in its pilot episode. The narrative style echoes recent shows Lost, Flash Forward and to some extent, Fringe, by placing characters directly in the way of unexplained phenomena. The usual characters are here: politicians, spies, technologists and killers.
After seeing the pilot, we think NBC definitely has a hit on their hands. For those that missed it, it’s getting replayed on lots of affiliate networks in the days leading up to the second episode.
