    I feel that this season has a "flash-forward" like feel. They get a glimpse of their lives a year from now then back to the present.

    Still watching (and will) but it's definitely a different twist this time around. S3 is the least interesting of all so far, though which isn't a good sign.

    Definitely agree. They may have jumped the shark.

    It has reached the point that it is easy to FF over parts of it for sure.

    I don't know that the storyline is particularly problematic, but the pacing of the storyline sucks.

    I'm still watching, but find myself drifting to doing something else while watching it. Just a crazy story change with absolutely no info whatsoever about what is going on. Not to mention adding all these new people, starting to remind me of Lost, but the writing/storytelling is not that good.

    Try comparing Under The Dome to Better Call Saul. I did and I just took my SLs for Under The Dome off.

    The preview of upcoming episodes at the end of this week's episode was more interesting than this week's show ... as if it was some sort of "promise" by the show --- stick with us, the show may be dragging today but we're going somewhere with it. We promise!

    Of course, everything since they exited the cocoons could be yet another fantasy. Or an alternate reality. Or Fonz jumping a shark.

    I would not trust anything you see outside of the doom, from inside the doom at this point.

    It has to be a fantasy. The recovery rate from injuries like shootings, punctures, beatings, ect. is unbelievable.

    Residual effects from the cocoons and super goo may help heeling ... but considering that all the events we have seen since the dome came down have happened in the past three weeks in Chester Mills there is a remarkable recovery rate. 31 episodes (so far) covering three weeks of life? If "real life" recovery rates were used months should have passed. Suspension of belief is needed to allow any enjoyment of the series to continue.

    Normally it is suspension of dis-belief that allows viewers to accept the drama.

    But that is often a bridge too far. I liked this show in season one, but immediately in season two it jumped the shark. I stopped watching, but saved the shows. The reason I am here is because I saw people saying it was getting good again, so I tried to jump back in. After 5 WTF's out loud in dis-belief of how the characters were acting, at the 40 minute mark I finally had to jump out. I like these characters, but it is hard to not start dis-liking them when the writers have them acting so brainless.

    This seems like the far too common situation of talented writers leaving to be replaced by untalented writers, or talented writers with nothing left in the tank.

    As they said in GOT, "Shame! (ding ding ding) Shame! (ding ding ding) Shame! (ding ding ding)"

    Yes, that's the normal phrase, but it's odd, as both phrases seem to work fine.

    Most recent episode seems to finally be tying up some of the craziness that has been going on. Might be too little, too late from the sound of it. :lol:

    I noticed that too. It's like they realized hey we really screwed up with these first few episodes, but we are getting the story back on track. Don't tune out now, just wait. Now if they don't deliver in tonight's episode like they previewed, then I may stop watching.

    Just a guess, but I doubt there will be more seasons of this show.
