    it ended with too many ? unanswered. 2nd season came across as if it were the the 3rd or 4th episode. please give us some answers as to why the dome is there and an ending with some answers, or at least tie some strings together.

    Can’t wait for season 2 of Under the Dome. Rachelle Lafevre is an absolutely beautiful blue eyed redhead. I’m glad she has such an important part. season 1 ended with a lot of questions

    Under The Dome fan – Extant sounds good, looking forward to trying it in July as well. Grimm is great, as is Almost Human – Revolution – The Mentalist – Leverage some times

    I do not think I have EVER heard of Extant. I just read the premise and it sounds good.
    Anyone here have any opinions on it? Should I hunt it down on Netflix or where ever it is and watch it?
