Could NBC's "The Event" actually be a decent TV show?

Three new promos for NBC's mysteries-within-wheels-within-cheese show The Event are making me get my hopes up. It's got the paranoia and intrigue, but more than that, it seems like this show is actually going to move.

So the three new promos showcase the fact that there are three "events" that are not The Event. One is Jason Ritter's girlfriend disappearing, with no sign that she was ever there, from a fancy beach resort hotel. The second is the President discovering there's a secret facility in Alaska that the CIA has been covering up, where something weird has been going on. And the third is an attempted assassination of that same president.

As for The Event itself, apparently it's something that'll change the future of the human race forever and stuff. This show is in Heroes' old slot, Mondays at 9, and honestly it's already looking like a huge improvement. Fingers crossed, anyway!
