Does anyone else think The Event on NBC is a takeoff on Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End?
I just watched the latest episode of The Event and Sophia has opened A Portal to her world, where 2.5 Billion of her people will invade Earth. It has been revealed that her people are originally from Earth, had abandoned it, sometime in distant prehistory, to a relatively nearby planet of a Sun about to go Nova. They believe when they return to Earth, they will evolve, to a higher state of being, and Sophia's wanting to wipeout all human existence is humane compared to what will happen when her people return and begin to Evolve. Well, that's Childhood's End, except Clarke depicted his aliens to resemble a huge Spock, with wings, and more of a "V" presence, hovering over every city. What do you think?
