.before he shoots himself the dome will be lifted.
Ah, yes, we call that "Darabonting" a King story.
Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp! YAY! ABC, Saturday mornings, 1970
Don't forget his rock group, The Evolution Revolution!!!!!
The only thing that could save this show now would be to have Walter White show up outside the dome and have him taunt Big Jim with a bag of "blue".
with 11 million viewers each week and around 6 million more added to that when streaming and DVR usage is added in, this show doesn't need to be saved. It is already in a position most shows would envy.
I took it he meant save it in the actually being any good sense.
These UTD threads are awesome.
and that position is: airing during the summer when there are extremely slim pickings for viewers. This show would have likely died a quick death if it aired in the fall when it would have had a lot of competition.
With any show it is about when it airs. A show can do great in one time slot or day and do terrible in another. Having the show on during the Summer is no different. Although no one really knows how well it would have done during the regular season since it's all conjecture.
Personally I would have watched it during the regular TV season and most people I know that watch UTD would have as well. But the show was already profitable before it even aired since it was sold over seas and also to Amazon for streaming before CBS even broadcast it. So even if it had aired during the regular season it would have still been profitable.
One thing is for sure, the networks have plans to run more shows during the the Summer. Since the viewership is waning during the traditional TV season time, Summertime is the one season that they can increase their viewership. All the major networks have plans for more Summer shows in 2014. And the huge success of UTD is part of the reason for that.
Like I said, there's nothing on now and UTD is reaping the benefits of no competition.
If this were a regular fall show, I'd have dropped it by the 3rd episode.
OK..junior is a psycho, so lets give him a uniform and a cop car and let him drive around unsupervised. Then. If he needs to go "undercover" to get into the fight club, all he has to do is take off the shirt and no, one will notice.
That had me actually laughing out loud. I can just see Walt holding the meth while jumping up and down laughing and taunting Big Jim as Big Jim stares on seeing but not hearing Walt.
As a side point, I love how "Big" Jim is about 5"5'.
Maybe the nickname is more about length than height.
He was given that nickname as a joke.
My first thought was "Since when does Big Jim live on a lake?" He was in the middle of town before, wasn't he? I can't imagine you'd have a storm/fallout shelter that close to a lake.
I was curious, so I tried swimming some laps in my pool over the weekend with my hands crossed in front as if they were tied. With some practice and mental preparation I think I could go a good ways, but if I had fallen out of a boat fully clothed and watched in horror as it pulled away I think I'd be dead in 5 minutes or less. It was very tiring to not be able to give my legs a break.
If she knew about Drownproofing, she likely could have easily made it to shore even with her hands tied (assuming the water wasn't too cold.) The idea is to mostly float, and use your energy sparingly.
