Karen & Doug are "on the scene" for this podcast!
So, the ratings for TV show Under the Dome may be falling somewhat this season (sort of like the pink stars), but Karen and Doug are your intrepid reporters with a fun "newspaper format" approach to the podcast. Their lively and intelligent approach to the podcast make the show more interesting as they explore the plot lines and show devices. Grab your copy of this podcast today!
This UtD podcast is by far the best of the bunch. Karen and Doug understand the wacky nature of Under the Dome. They take issue with some aspects of the show, but they still appreciate the show's good points. Other podcasts are way too negative. I like the newspaper style features of the podcast--a clever structure. The Barbie of the Week is a personal favorite! If you only want to listen to one UtD podcast, this is the one to choose.
Annoying nitpicking at times
I enjoy and listen to most of the podcasts GSM produces. I like this podcast most of the time except that sometimes they waste a lot of time with the nitpicking.
