'Under the Dome' Season 2, Episode 3 Recap: It's Raining Blood! Hallelujah It's Raining Blood

July 15th, 2014 10:30am EDT
Under The Dome
How is it we're more than two weeks into Domegate, and yet we're still being introduced to new characters? Where have these people been while society was collapsing and people were being murdered left and right? Has Lyle just nonchalantly been doing trims and buzz cuts this whole time?

Dirty Girl
Two social misfits hit the road in search of some answers in the broad comedy "Dirty Girl" set in 1987. Danielle (Juno Temple) is a girl with a certain reputation at the small-town Oklahoma high school she attends -- her fashion statements suggests she's either a streetwalker or auditioning for a Mötley Crüe video, and her list of sexual conquests is quite remarkable for her age.
