Just finished watching the 2nd episode of The Event. I gotta say, I reaalllly want to like this show.

I once had a friend who told me how relationships had been broken down by a scientist who said each person had a shield around them (invisible, of course) and this shield was their personality. He called it a Fairemont (not sure of the spelling) Shield. Basically the shield had bumps and cavities and rough […]
