    Well, for practical purposes, it's easier to control the crowd. And two, how are you going to tell 2000 people where in that 10 miles to meet their particular relatives, if you don't have a centralized location? You're already having communication problems as it is.

    The thing is though, that they were at two locations (the McAlister place and the bridge) and the person I replied to seems unable to comprehend the concept.

    Wasn't it specifically said that they were to meet at a specific place for the reunions?

    I think it was just shaky directing, not an indication that there were multiple meeting sites...

    Yes. At the point where the dome meets the bridge.

    Why would they cancel it. Under the Dome is one of the highest rated shows right now. And for total viewers is the highest watched show this Summer. Its getting over 11 million people watching it each week. Before DVR viewing is factored in.

    The lesson of which is:

    A) People like crap
    B) People are so desperate in the summer, they'll even watch crap
    C) All of the above

    Personally, I fall into C. I always like good crap. This crap isn't terribly good, even by crap standards, but there's hardly any competition.

    I think there are alot of shows on that are much worse than Under the Dome.
    I know a bunch of people watching it from all ages. Ranging in age from 12 to 87. They all seem to be enjoying it.

    I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion on this. "China was on the verge of attacking the U.S. after the dome came down as the nation's leaders believed it to be an illegal superweapon that was being tested."

    Seriously? China is gonna start WW3 because they think the Dome is our secret weapon? Not even the Chinese are that paranoid. Heck, we'd simply invite them to send their scientists over to work with our scientists to study it. Oh wait, we never see *any* scientists or engineers studying this thing from the outside.

    On second thought, I'd blow us up too. It's the only way to cleanse the stupidity out of the gene pool.

    That brings up a frightening scenario. Apocalypse outside the dome kills everybody. People under the dome are the only ones to survive since they were protected. The dome eventually goes away and the world is repopulated by these idiots. :eek:

    I have decided that the dome has an amplification effect on crazy (junior, the Rev, and the trigger happy cop couldn't have been that bad off all along or it would have been noticed well before now), and considering the rush to bomb it, apparently it works on the outside as well.

    And apparently the effect leaks out into the real world as well, specifically concentrating where the script writers work.


    Now there's an idea for a Stephen King book, TV series writers being possessed by the show they're writing, so that it goes where it wants to instead of where they originally intended.

    And the show is really stupid.

    Writer: "Dammit, Jim, we're SMARTER than this!"

    Show: "Hyuck hyuck hyuck!"

    At the Television Critics Association Press tour, CBS boss Les Moonves praised the series. "It's the way television should be. It's the way television can be," he said.

    Come on people....don't you know high quality when you see it?!

    sweet home, al
    now i feel like i'm contributing to the delinquency of cbs, in fact all of television, if i don't immediately delete the sp. :rolleyes:

    if the show is so great, it wouldn't be airing in the summer with the rest of the fall schedule rejects - who does he think he's kidding? unless he's admitting cbs was too inept to realize the show's potential before they scheduled the series...hmm...
