Re: Under the Dome (Season 1 - 2013)

Racelle Lefevre played my best friend's aunt on a TV show about ten years ago, so I'm always happy when I see her name pop up.

Anyway, I also wish more stations would do the BBC/Showtime/HBO-type model for seasons but you can't really do that with regular cable because it's so hard to get advertisers on board for that.  If they can figure out a way to compensate for that, we may get some sharper TV shows on more channels.  And I wouldn't be surprised if by now a TV show went down to 38 minutes for all the ads-- especially to pay for a TV show like that.

Seriously, the first station that figures out how to sell expensive air for limited shows and get a pattern of success-- they'll be WAY ahead of everyone else in the programming division.  But meanwhile HBO and now Netflix and Amazon and others are beating them to the punch and cable television continues to whither... what they gotta do is figure out not just how to compete with those services, but do what those services can't.  Gotta turn those weaknesses into strengths.
