    Nyssa, I read The Last Ship back in the 80's, and I'm astounded that all these years later it was made into a series. I found the book interesting, yet sad and depressing too. I understand that great parts of the story were changed for the series, I'll be curious to see if they make the story better.

    See, then you missed the blue haired girl attempt to save herself by dressing up and acting like some d-bag version of a guy, complete with imitation beard stubble. She got voted out 13-0.

    OOOfa, just watched first episode of Under The Dome. Man did they stink up the joint. Characters just popping up out of nowhere, considering the town has been under for a bit now, you wouldn't think there would be anyone not seen so far. But that isn't the worst. Now they are clearly going in the LOST faith vs. science direction. Clumsily. And everytime somebody spoke it was exposition time. If you have to tell your story through people stating the obvious events occuring on screen...you are doing something wrong. This WASN'T a good show season 1. But they had a clear direction and it was entertaining enough. Now it's all a scramble and just tedious and borderline unwatchable. Nice cameo by Uncle Stevie...but he deserves better.

    I watched the second ep of Under the Dome last night. I thought the first season was okay, not great, but it's not like I had anything better to do on Monday nights so I watched it. *shrugs*

    Dunno, from the looks of it, this season looks like it's gonna be more watered down and I am really doubting that there will be a significant payoff when all is said and done (unless Cthulhu is involved, lol).

    Who knows if I'll keep watching. Maybe I should spend time finally reading IT instead.

    I'm watching the second episode now and it really was never that good. Now that they have fully embraced having the characters constantly talk about what the dome wants them to do, I am tempted to cancel it. I am also not happy with the two characters they killed last week for no really good reason (especially the first one, which was totally pointless). I assume the actresses were just not fully available. I could be finally rewatching Lost, and instead this. Someone tell me when HBO blows through all the episodes of True Detective again.

    Fargo was great, btw. I was a little putoff by Lester's Wiley Coyote look right before his Wiley Coyote death, but I can live with that. It was brutal what happened at the end of the second to last episode and how Lester let it happen to see if Malvo was there, but that was the selfish sociopath Lester had become. I had no problem with the time jump, but it seemed really dumb of Lester to forget that Malvo was the devil and not take his advice to walk away, even moreso to say "yes" in the elevator. Even though I am all for what Tom Hanks' kid did at the end, I am pretty sure a postman does not get a commendation for murdering a suspect. Also, they completely forgot about Lester's brother, who presumably was rotting away in prison for a crime he did not commit for a year and counting, and lost his family over it. Great trap Lester set for Malvo though. I kind of wish Malvo had survived so he could have continued to be the devil in a second season.

    Nice bit about Wile E. there. But I think Lester confronted Malvo in the elevator due to an inflated sense of ego. He got away with murder...and thrived. So yeah, he forgot himself. As far as Dome...yeah, ready to jump off too. Gonna watch ep 2 and maybe 3 and if I don't see improvement...I am out. Ep 1 offended me as a tv watcher. I have no time for nonsense.

    Review: Halle Berry returns from space in CBS Extant

    Not keen on this, but your mileage may vary.

    Is there some way Under the Dome could be combined with Bio-Dome?

    I can understand why Lester did it, but it was still very foolish of him to forget just what Malvo was. And then if he had just helped Malvo with the bodies, maybe Malvo doesn't come after him.

    If they do have a second season, does it have more with Solverson or does it follow someone else who finds the money? Probably both.
