    I think you guys put too much emphasis on the matches. Yes, it was dark, and they were lost. But it's not like their lives were in any immediate danger. They already knew the general direction out (due to the flickering flames), so it was just a matter of time before they found the exit.

    I was just responding to the emphasis the show put on the matches. It made a point of that being the final match, presumably to manufacture drama and tension, but then immediately disregarded the drama and tension it had sought to build the moment before. That's poor writing.

    Plus they made a big deal of the structure being unstable because of the dome slicing through it, so there was supposed immediate danger. Without any evidence of it.

    We can keep waving all this off as the characters being stupid but what it really is is bad writing.

    You mean "country singer who's frozen when he dies and awakens in the 23rd century aboard the Enterprise?

    Or perhaps the doctor from Alcatraz?

    He does get around.

    UTD is the first show in years that had my thinking of bailing after just 2.5 episodes. Man oh man episode 3 was boring.

    I don't know, I'm still mildly entertained by it. Sure, these characters are stupid, but in an entertaining way. I guess I'm curious enough to see how they resolve the dome crisis to keep watching. I've stuck through much worse. And I'm not even a SK fan. I like the kid and the "two mommy" daughter dynamic. I think they are interesting characters. And the woman reporter who's hubby is on the other side is interesting.

    Have they said if this is a mini-series or a regular series with a S2 possibility? I think it's moving too slow for a mini-series and that's my major problem with this show.

    Ratings still good?

    The article I read said that they could continue on to other seasons. If the ratings stay where they are it should easily get another season. But each episode has lost viewers. It started out with around 13.5 million viewers and the third episode is now down to around 10.5 million viewers. For live + Same day ratings. But that is still much higher than anything else out there right now. But if they keep losing viewers at this rate there won't be many left by the end of Summer.

    They've made it clear that they will stretch it out as long as they can. This will end up like Lost or How I Met You Mother, where you don't get the resolution until the show has become so bad that it's in danger of being canceled.

    that's a little harsh, both my wife and I are enjoying it. For us, a suitable summer show where our expectations are not as high as they will be in the fall.

    you can still enjoy it even though it is a horrible show, that doesn't change the fact that it is terrible, I enjoy some terrible shows at times also :)

    Exactly

    And I'm bad with names. Terrible with names actually. I watch shows for years that I like and for the life of me cannot remember names. So yeah, that was harsh.

    If it's that terrible, why put yourself through that torture? I might stick with shows I don't enjoy as much as others, or shows that were good for many years, but turn terrible because I've invested time in it, but for a new show, if it's that terrible, I'm bailing.
