Is it as good as NBC needs it to be? It's too soon to tell, but "The Event" definitely stands out among other fall offerings, with its intricate premise and frenzied pace. The parallel storyline series about secretive government higher-ups, a man searching for his fiance, a father being blackmailed and a President completely not in the know is about as ambitious as TV can get. But where similar dramas have gotten convoluted, producers and cast are adamant "The Event" will be different -- offering weekly resolutions and fewer loose ends. An interesting concept indeed.
