I think the Event is a very interesting and intriguing show, and after 18 episodes we now have a better explanation for everything as well as some stuff common sense didn't catch because it aired later than this review was made. The show is a bit hard to follow at times, and you definitely need to watch all the episodes and in order or you won't get anything. There is violence, usually with a fair amount of blood, and on the newest episode (18) a pretty gory scene where a doctor cuts open the chest of a frozen, green, 90-something-year-old corpse and removes its lungs (the actual lungs are never shown [yet..]) and then cuts his suit with his surgical knife (uh-oh, the thing was infected with a disgusting virus and now you just let it get all over you!) and the disastrous results follow. One suicide of a major character also recently occurred. Also on the side of sickness, earlier in the show a group of people get infected with an un-curable disease that gives them discolored skin, bloody noses and mouths, and some weird brain trauma. A bus is blown up with passengers inside. There is a quite iffy scene where a man and a woman lie in bed together, and it's totally obvious they're having sex, but no explicit parts are shown (the woman wears a bra and the waist-area of both are covered by a blanket). Some smoking and drinking. Language consists mostly of "d-mn it!", "what/who/how the hell!", and "son of a
b--tch!" It is a very awesome show though!
