This show improved slightly after they killed off Laila, but the dialog was still atrocious and I can safely say it was one of the most predictable, sloppily written and by the numbers TV series I have ever seen. It was as if it was pumped out by a TV machine based on a sampling of other TV series but the computer that churned out the scripts thought everything was new and fresh.
From the cross to the cloning to White Vincent saving the day, you can see how far back in this thread it was easy to see all those moments coming. I even knew as soon as the girl got pregnant last week that she would be the final scene in the show. I did not see White Vincent being there however. That was totally ludicrous (what happened to the Pyrate Captain?) but kind of amusing. They really should have made him the hero. His cloning enhanced healing and bulletproofing (eh, probably) and deadly blind man aim was more interesting than Doc Greene. I also did enjoy this week Aaron getting punched out. That was amusing. There should have been much more of that.
There were plenty of other amusing cliches and TV directing moments this week too. I enjoyed the small TARDIS helicopters which managed to seat and lift 15 armed men into the mountains and a Huey that could carry about 20 kids and adults in relative comfort. You never saw them getting in, you only saw them getting out! Except for everyone who conveniently died in the crash. That's what happens when you fly above your weight.
TV rules also state that whenever someone is at the end of a pump shotgun the operator must always pump it. Characters must always walk into dangerous situations without a shell in the chamber or somewhere between the previous and current scene a shell might have fallen out of the barrel.
It was kind of sad they set the finale up to naively think there would be a sequel. More sad that the Triangle and Area 51 conspiracy run sounded much more exciting than running around after clocks!
Still, much livelier than Under the Dome.
