This Week’s Winner: Big Jim Rennie

Come Back Here, Junior!
              Come Back Here, Junior!

This week’s TV-Hero Award goes to Big Jim Rennie in CBS’s Under The Dome.  Big Jim continues to impress critics and naysayers alike.

In last week’s episode, Big Jim rescued the entire town from the Cave-Pods. After that he “took care” of the evil scientist who was experimenting on The Egg (the source of the dome’s power, of course).  And during that time he took in a hungry, lonely stray dog.  He gave him food and water, and named him Dog.

Congratulations on your award, Big Jim!
