The Event: Are You Satisfied with “Arrival,” the Last Episode?

Event last episodeLast night, NBC aired the series finale of The Event. As fans know all too well, the series has struggled in the ratings for much of the season and the network decided to cancel the show last week after just 20 episodes.

The Event started decently in the ratings but the numbers quickly declined. Once they fell as low as a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic, NBC decided to pull it and planned to relaunch the series in early 2011. When they did, the ratings dropped even lower.

TV show supportThe producers knew there was a good chance that The Event wouldn’t be back for a second season and tried to give viewers some sense of satisfaction. They constructed the finale so that it would answer some questions but leave plenty of room for a second season, just in case they got lucky. Though it was cancelled, there’s still a glimmer of hope that it may continue elsewhere.

If you missed it, you can catch up with what happened on the series finale or watch it below. Either way, we’d like to know what you thought.

Was there enough information to satisfy you? Would you recommend that people watch the series or not bother because it doesn’t have a definitive ending? Which unresolved questions or storylines will bug you the most?

    My husband and I recently found this series on Netflix and we loved it!
    It seems to us that such a good show deserves a much better ending.
    There are a lot of unanswered questions. For example, what will happen with the 2.5 billion people coming to planet Earth?
    Please do another season!!! Don’t leave us hanging!!!

    you need to renew the show it was great but left us really hanging at the end there should be a wrap up movie of some sort. the series was fabulous and many people agree.

    This show is intriguing and I agree full of suspense like “24”. Here it is 2014 and we still find this show to be worth the effort to be aired.
