    I've heard about that movie, but didn't see it. I hope Extant turns out to be as interesting as that. I kind of wondered about aliens, but who knows.

    I did question one thing about the first episode though. A major sign that something went wrong is that Halle deleted 13 minutes of video footage from inside the space ship. Well, even now, we know that nothing is really deleted. It's still there and certainly, NASA could retrieve it if they wanted to. lol Kind of made me laugh.

    I watched Extant and for me the jury's still out. It was just odd. I don't know yet if it was good-odd or bad-odd. The whole thing seemed creepy & a bit morbid.
    I do like the cast and acting though, and it's different, so I'll give it another week or two before passing final judgement.

Then the astronaut/alien returned to earth and impregnated his wife with alien twins.
    I saw that movie, Imperfect, and I can go even further back to the the comedy, Soap. Richard Mulligan's character was impersonated by an alien who impersonated him and impregnated his wife, played by Cathryn Damon. One of my favorite sitcoms even. It had a great cast and it was where Billy Crystal became a star.

    I liked Finding Carter and am interested to see how the story progresses.

    On another note, why do most of my summer shows have to be on Mondays?! Thankfully On Demand has all of them available so I can watch one live and the rest later. My faves are Major Crimes, Teen Wolf, Ladies of London, American Ninja Warrior, Mistresses and Under the Dome. So you can see my dilemma, lol.

    So, I think I'm going to have to quit The Night Shift. I like it and think it's a good show, but it's far too heavy for me. I don't like being sad and depressed when I watch TV. I stopped watching ER for the exact same reason.

    Night Shift has a lot of realism, for a scripted drama.

    This week's episode was the finale. I don't know if it will be back. (I haven't heard anything, but I could have missed the announcement.)

    I'll continue to watch if it returns.

    I think they have renewed it, because I think I remember being surprised at that. I think somebody said that upthread.
