"Under the Dumb" didn't work; maybe we should try "Under the Done" to see if that could get it canceled.

Nah, it would take people not watching it. And since Americans are too dang stupid to know how dang stupid this show is and GET OFF MY LAWN YOU DANG KIDS!, it will probably run for decades.

The worst part about this show being renewed for another season is that it will prevent Dean Norris from being in something that's actually good.

Yes, gunpowder residue from when the firing pin strikes.

As for "testing", back in the olden days they would use paraffin wax.

a test in which a paraffin cast of the hand of a person suspected of firing a gun is subjected to chemical analysis to determine the presence of powder particles

So yes, with the tools in the hospital they would be able to to get preliminary result.

The thing is, both of them have fired weapons recently, they would both come up positive.

When red wakes up she's going to blow up Big Jim's story about Max being an innocent reputable businesswoman.

Well, he should at least have enough downtime to be in a movie.

But Linda should already know this, between Duke's confession letter and the tape of Max paying him off.

Of course, that should have been "DANG STUPID KIDS."

Senior moment, I guess. First of many, no doubt.

Unless I've already had others...

I think he may have meant Jim's story about how Barbie shot red.

I will give the show credit for Barbie actually having had a plan for a turnabout on Maxine. Because while on any other show you'd know that Barbie and Big Jim walking in like that would be part of the plan (and on Burn Notice there would be two layers of backup plan and two things that went horribly wrong), on this show, you could well believe Barbie's plan was "we'll go where she is and then do something". So for once someone thought about something. If only that trend lasted...

I will also give them credit for the fact that Barbie was no more hesitant to punch Linda than he would have been to punch Duke or any male sheriff.

Finally, I'll give them credit for not playing up some ridiculous reason for Maxine's mother to have somehow survived. Or for Maxine, for that matter.

But I really have to strain to find things to give them credit for, don't I? Because everything else was pretty absurd. The blatant product placement this time was actually one of the best bits of drama in the show.

I would not bet against a "resurrection day" in some future episode.

You need to read the book, the writers of the show are obviously going to use the same connection.

But Linda jumping to the assumption that Barbie shot Julia makes no sense either.

She's playing the sap when it comes to big Jim.

All cause Big Jim buttered her up for all of 45 seconds a couple of episodes ago. That is what these writers call character development.

I just started reading the book since the main plot is very interesting to me, not the bad dialog and nonsensical side stories IE the fight club. No spoilers and not going to go into a big discussion on it, but after only 50 pages it is clear the book and TV show have nothing in common except for the title and some character names.

What's the title of the book, again? Is it "Under the Dome", too?

I vaguely recall the book & TV show also both have in common a mysterious dome that encompasses a small town, cutting them off from the outside world...IIRC, it was pretty central to both.

Or am I thinking of a different book?

She was oblivious to Duke's involvement, too.

Yes, that pesky dome is also a shared element between the two - but so far the characters and some of the main plots couldn't be farther apart.

I know people here hate the book talk so I'll move back to the TV show. Hopefully they get on track now that the fight club lady is dead and Big Jim has Barbie on the run. Such potential, here's hoping the step it up going into the season finale.

We book people like the shows to generally follow the book. Stephen King's The Stand was a well done as a mini-series. Another book I read in the past, "The Relic" was fantastic and had nothing in common with the screen adaptation.

Regarding "The Dumb" I just wish the writers would step it up a bit.

Not always. I loved the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. When they turned it into the movie Blade Runner, they took liberties with it that are probably at a similar level to those taken here, and the movie was at least as good as the book.

Of course, there can be a difference between the liberties taken by a highly skilled and talented screenwriter with a deep respect for and understanding of the source material, and those taken by a room full of untrained monkeys flinging their feces...
