I don't think there's much more of this show I can take. Almost everyone is an idiot and everything that happens is ridiculously cliché. Dean Norris continues to be the only saving grace of the show but I'm not sure if that's enough to keep me watching. A pity because the show has a promising premise, but they keep squandering it with dumb bullshit.
I agree. About the only cliche characters missing are the wise, old grandmother and the precocious subteen.
The only interesting character is the dome.
You're only allowed so many teen stereotypes in a show and this one is already packed pretty full of teen stereotypes between primary characters and secondary ones.
I agree though, we do need a wise old grandmother or someone like that. Where are our characters going to get their worldly wisdom?!
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
