  5. I’m glad that it looks like “The Goodwin Games” was able to put together a proper finale, but I’m really upset that it only got seven episodes to tell its story. The first six episodes were so obviously just gearing up that it’ll be weird for what was to be this big vast process to wrap up so perfunctorily. I’m hoping there’s a time jump.

  6. LynnH says:

    Why isn’t King & Maxwell mentioned?

  7. Columbus says:

    The Fosters and Major Crimes

  10. Joey says:

    The Goodwin Games, sucks the first season was so short. and Under The Dome.

  11. Andrea says:

    I really liked the Goodwin games. Why does it seem that all the shows with heart get cancelled but the sarcastic and rude shows get to stay on the air?

  12. Matt says:

    I definitely want to check out Under The Dome and Siberia, but I think I will have to DVR Siberia.

    • DoctorWhoFanatic! says:

      Siberia was REALLY good (It’s been on Hulu Plus for a week or so now, the premiere that is, as an early sneak peek).

      Under the Dome was entertaining, but having read the book, it was just “good” while I felt Siberia was much more intriguing!

  13. Jared says:

  33. S. says:

    Can we talk about how the promo for the “after show” for MTV’s Teen Wolf, that previewed a tease of the guest of the night before the end of Monday’s show, completely ruined the fact that the Alpha pack member would end up dead? While I am sure everyone saw it coming from 5 miles away, it was shown immediately before the scene where he was killed.
    It kind of ruined the suspense of hearing the Vet say “He is doing surprisingly well.” when you just heard that his character had been killed off.
