Hey just because it gets tough to stomach this tripe doesn't mean I'm a quitter. I'll at least finish out the season or die trying

I did give up, and streamed an episode of Luther instead.

Damn right. I have already worked up time in my schedule to develop an appropriate rant at the end of this damn thing.

For me the worst bits from this week were the military radio transmissions (ok I guess this didn't start just this week, but, seriously, that shit's not encrypted?) and the whole Junior/Angie/Linda sequence.

Let me get this straight... Forrest goes all "She tastes like cigarettes sorry for ruining your New Year's party Lt. Dan", which alerts him to the fact that Barbie is around... or that something is up.. because...?

Then he chases her, radios Linda when he sees Barbie... and then despite the fact that Angie is gone with Julia before Linda makes it there, and Junior is crumpled in a heap not saying anything, she reports to Big Jim that Angie got away with Julia, which she totally didn't see. I mean the camera even goes out of the way to show that the ambulance is totally out of sight right before the police car comes into view. I mean maybe he radioed offscreen that someone had taken Julia... seems like a stretch... I mean he goes to chase Angie and what...? Radios Linda that Angie pulled the wool over his eyes and that Julia is missing? That still doesn't mesh with her line to Big Jim since Angie didn't have Julia when Junior radioed her to begin with.

Also, didn't Linda steal Phil's car because someone siphoned her gas or something? And then ditched Phil and told him to fuck off because he's not a cop. Because all of a sudden he's her new police sidekick and they're rocking a police cruiser.
Man I need a beer after reading about the latest developments! How do the writers and producers think this shit is watchable?

At the rate Big Jim is killing people, I expect Chester's Mill to be depopulated by the end of season 2.

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

My DVR didn't record it, show was delayed due to I'm guessing... football? I dunno. Anyway, I'm at the point debating whether or not I'm motivated by this show enough to go to the OnDemand section of my cable to find it vs. when I could just play it off my recordings list. Yeah, that's where I'm now at with this show. If I have to press more than a couple of buttons to watch it I don't care.

Maybe in season 2 Bryan Cranston can join the cast as Big Jim's brother in law, who is investigating all the drug manufacturing in Chester's Mill.

Linda is the stupidest friggin' person in the entire universe. "I don't know what it is, but I'm going to impound it?" It's not a fuckin' car! I was hoping she got killed when it threw her against the wall.

And... what the heck happened? After all that, that's what they give us as a finale? Really? That's really weak. I don't even really know what happened, just know that stuff happened, and it's not exactly making me want to watch a second season if there is one. Talk about unrewarding and unsatisfying. This show doesn't deserve a second season.

I wonder if they had shot everything as a single season show and then the order for the 2nd season came in, and they had to re-edit the original ending into a cliff hanger. But yeah, very unsatisfying.

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

This show became such a chore to watch around episode four. Like others have said, this is one of those shows that are so horrible that you HAVE to watch. Clearly shows that Steven Spielberg and Stephen King have no business producing anything for television. I've finally given up and refuse to watch season two (unless they finally give us some explanations after the third or fourth episode )

I think this show would probably have been much better as a miniseries, maybe do like 3 big 2 hour events and be done with it. The plot doesn't lend itself to a multi season show

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

Man, I know it's common for showrunners to try and emulate Lost, but did they really have to imitate its awful Season 2/3 wheel spinning phase?

Well, except that Linda makes Anna Lucia look like Supercop - I was really hoping that Phil would "accidentally" shoot her ......
