Why have it open up with Barbie committing a murder? (of Julia's non-existent husband as she divorced). Don't know WHAT this brings to the story. And Linda and Rusty on opposite sides of the DOME? Come ON! And their 2 children now 1 child of the 'token' same-sex couple/ COME ON?? And Junior keeps his girlfriend(s) in a bomb shelter? And 'Chef' is some slick, clean-looking radio DJ instead of the strungout meth-head? (skewered that part of the storyline too). Not MINOR changes, complete switcheraroo changes. No improvement either to the plotline!
