You assume that Spielberg has anything at all to do with the day-to-day production of the show. He does not. Spielberg puts his name on dozens of projects. In most cases, his involvement is limited to helping them secure financing and then he walks away.

Most likely you're correct- but he's tarnishing his brand by just rubber stamping turds like Dome.

In a departure from its signature drama procedurals, CBS has given a 13-episode straight-to-series order to Steven Spielberg and Stephen King‘s Under The Dome, a drama based on King’s bestselling 2009 novel, which will be produced by Spielberg’s Amblin Television.

Will you read every script of Extant?
Yeah, I read every script that my television company Amblin Entertainment develops. I’ve read every script on Extant and I’ve sat in the writers’ room occasionally to just sort of brainstorm. I don’t break the stories.

For some reason- I thought she looked especially fetching in the last episode?

Not a new phenomenon for Spielberg. Take a look at his IMDb page some day. His brand was tarnished long ago.

If the Showtime original plan to produce had panned out, I think we'd have seen a completely different show .. the book really is some great horror work and begs for an unfettered by network TV production ..


Those that have read it know what I'm talking about ..

Under the Dumb has been relegated to my "last show of the night" now so that if I doze off while watching... I really couldn't care less as to what I missed!
Oh I certainly hate the new characters: from Ms. Science (aka pathetic trying to justify ridiculous bs) to the Lyle/Sam/Melanie/Pauline bs of more characters that spout off terrible exposition about the dome/egg and giving more Jr. family angst.

Rebecca the Science Teacher has also undergone major character revisions over the course of the season. Remember how when she showed up she kept rambling on and stroking Big Jim's ego saying she supported him because the Dome chose him to lead? Now she doesn't trust him anymore, so what happened to all that faith? Did she suddenly decide to leave the Church of Domeism when her swine flu plan didn't pan out? She did find out that the swine flu would have been fatal from some guy in the church, after all.

She went from being Jim's #1 fan encouraging to wipe some people off and then turned into Julia's bff who's suddenly afraid of him and has to keep secrets about Barbie because Jim is supposedly threating. .

This show has unexpected and I'm certain unintended entertainment value for me, which is why I keep watching.
It's as if the writers (and I use that term in the same vein as I would for those that design DMV forms) throw words at a wall and go with whatever sticks. The result is fairly humorous, enough to justify the loss of 42 minutes of my life.

Add in my sarcastic complaining here, and the TV.com review, and I'm getting my moneys worth.

I stand by what I said about Spielberg (my former icon). It doesn't matter to me whether he is even aware the show exists. If he gave permission to use his name on a snuff film, I'm holding him accountable. He's making something from it.

It is only about 40 minutes, so you get 2 minutes of your life back.
