    To be expected. I’m not too worried.

    Man, I hope Angie gets out of the bomb shelter soon. It’s kind of a boring storyline so far and I feel Britt Robertson has much more talents than kicking, screaming and crying.

    • wrstlgirl says:

      Yeah, I’m tired of her screeching already. Just get her out of there and kill Junior.

      • John says:

        The only boring part of the Dome is Junior. I’m not a huge fan of Britt, but even I know she’s better than this. They should just scrap their whole basement story.

      • Leigh says:

        Guys, it’s only the second episode. Give them time. If, however, by episode 8 she’s still in the shelter? Yeah, that’s WAAAAAY too long.

    I like Under the Dome, was hesitant to watch it since it’s a summer show not on USA but I took a shot and it’s good.

  4. Dizzle says:

    You’d think that given the glut of repeats still on the Big 3’s summer schedules, they’d have been able to schedule three of their big scripted summer series away from each other!

    • George says:

      thank u!

    • Len says:

      It’s the only way to do it. You can’t let the competition walk away with a slot, you need to challenge them head on. You may never win the slot but you need to eat away as best you can at their numbers. There’d be no tv without advertisers and that’s what advertisers want.

      While as viewer I think it sucks, but if i were in charge I’d do the exact same thing. Head on and knock down the Titans as best I can.

    I am pretty happy so far with the summer season in terms of TV watching. It is funny, but in some ways I feel like there is more I want to watch than in the regular season. I am loving the trashy guilty pleasures that are “Mistresses” and “Devious Maids” and so far “Under the Dome” is really good and interesting.

      With Defiance, Warehouse 13, Under the Dome, Big Break Mexico, Mistresses, Teen Wolf, King and Maxwell, and the upcoming Bear Grylls show, I watch (well, DVR and watch throughout the week) more tv on Monday nights than during the fall and spring seasons.

    I really wish The Goodwin Games was given another chance. It was such a good show. It had the potential to be great

  7. KCC says:

    American Ninja Warrior!! I hope more people watch

  8. Britta Unfiltered says:

    I really wish there was more new stuff on TV right now that I could watch. The heat wave in the West right now…ugh, I don’t want to leave the house so I’m just staying in trying to find stuff to watch, and there was nothing that looked interesting last night, so I ended up on a Quantum Leap marathon on Netflix. Scott Bakula on that show can still make me feel like a 16-year old girl. (Please don’t do the math). I just know if I ever had the good fortune to meet him, it would be like The Beatles coming to America for me. I’d probably squeal, then scream, then dramatically pass out. One of my friends had her picture taken with him at a Star Trek convention in England, and I almost sort of hate her for it, lol. Maybe I should start stalking Star Trek conventions so I can meet Scott Bakula.

    I love mistresses wish people would give it a chance!
