    all these prequels need to stop -___- except Bates Motel…thats my sh*t :D

  2. How do you do a prequel to The Omen when the story starts with his birth?

  3. Cheeky says:

    Hoping Halt and Catch fire is good. Love Lee Pace, and AMC needs another successful drama after losing Breaking Bad, and the flops of Low Winter’s Sun and the killiing

    I love Brett Cullen, nice casting.

  5. Pat says:

    It will be interesting to see, how Barbie’s Father shows up in Under the Dome. Will the Dome become accessible for anyone to enter but no one can exit? I am anxious for this show to start up, just so I can get an answer to that question.

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Glad Barbie’s dad will be shown in new season. Wonder how they’ll bring his character to show. I’ll check Halt and Catch Fire online since previews for it looks good.

  7. Jen says:

    Under the Dome started to lose me last season, but I stuck it out. Definitely curious as to how they’ll introduce Barbie’s father, since Barbie was an out of towner. I do love Brett Cullen, so I’ll keep watching.
