    I realize that logic and rational thought are in short supply in Chester's Mill (as they are in the real world), but not one person asked the question, "if Barbie shot Julia, why is she helping him?"

    :rolleyes:

    I would have been happy with the series if they had just had a few bikini scenes with red.

    Junior (a source of wisdom, as we all know), has that all figured out. She is a liar. She lied before so she lied now.

    Big Jim's spin was that she hired Barbie to kill her husband and it went wrong and that discredits her.

    Logic as portrayed in Chester's Mill.

    As bad as the first 12 weeks of this has been, they did a remarkable job this week. They had more dumb in the first 30 minutes than they were able to cram in to the rest of the series.

    Well, that was dumb all right. Season pass deleted, but I will read the threads next year. :)

    I am in a huge minority here but I am actually kinda enjoying the show. Just like World War Z I totally forgot the book and just going with it and am interested to see where they are taking the story and how it will be different.

    I will watch next season.

    Because it wasn't Barbie that shot Julia.

    To be fair, you only invested 13 hours. It only seemed like 13 weeks.

    I enjoyed the season. I don't care whether its unrealistic. I don't care if the characters do stupid things. It's a light, fun show. It reminds me of 'the following' in that respect. Just don't take it too seriously.

    I bet most of you will be back next season.

    Now I'm off to pursue 'sleepy hollow' as my new guilty pleasure.

    Currently getting a 7.3/10 on IMDB as well. The thing is a huge win for a summer show for the network.

    However, Big Brother brings in big ratings, too, so ratings aren't necessarily a ringing endorsement. :)

    This makes me totally re-thing IMDB ratings


    Maybe it's like seeing Chick-Fil-A with 5 stars on Yelp!

    This IS a TIVO forum. If you fast forwarded thought the commercials, you only spent about 9:45 on this. Still, it's almost ten hours that you will never get back! :(

    That's not what Big Jim has been saying.

    At least they were consistent!!

    You all know that I'm not one of those who go on and on about bad writing and inconsistencies as long as I'm entertained. And I was for this show for about 4-5 episodes. Then the "dumb" was so overwhelming that even I wasn't entertained. I stuck around to see what happens with the dome and the managed to make THAT totally stupid. I could care less about the vindictiveness of the characters and the ridiculous addition of the "boss" lady for a couple of episodes. If they had stuck to the story about the dome and the egg and how the town deals with that, it would have been better. And they should have just kept this a mini-series.

    I'm out next summer. I'm sure I can find better things to do with the 9 and change hours I wasted on this.
