Under The Dome and other shows

Watched the first couple of eps of UTD but just couldn't get into it and gave up, something overly contrived about it, and not that I watched any but if feels like it's trying for a "Lost" vibe.

A couple more worth mentioning if you haven't seen/heard of them:

Banshee - ex-con lucks into assuming the identity of a murdered small-town sherriff in order to hide from his old crew out for blood, and reconnect with his pre-jail girlfriend. Check reality at the door but there's plenty to keep one entertained, and by all accounts it's gunning for True Blood's raunch factor, and blows everything away for violence...good lord the man gets as lucky as he gets beaten up!

Rewind - reinventing the time travel crime fighting thriller wheel I'm not totally convinced by the first episode, but there was enough goodness to make me come back for a second (if it ever gets run).

And three little-known series that disappeared after only one season:

My Own Worst Enemy - special agent who hides his real idenity by switching his brain to a split personality, the show follows what happens when his other self discovers he isn't real.

Carpoolers - definitely the most hilarious show I've seen in years following the trials and tribulations of four guys who car pool to work each day. Classic!

Awake - this was great, follows a detective who, after going through a serious car accident with his wife and son, each day he wakes up in an alternating reality where either the wife or son has survived. It's cool seeing him visiting a different department-appointed shrink try and make sense of what he's going through, but also how he can solve cases from what he learns in the other reality, but ultimately he's learning things about his son in the reality his wife survives that he normally wouldn't, then wakes up in his son's reality and knows how to deal. Hard to describe but really cool if you can find it.

Cheers and beers
