    Publicity before the show started said it was Pennsylvania.

    The boat Big Jim used had a North Carolina registration.

    Sure, but only if they show life gradually becoming more and more Utopian, culminating in the final episode with the realization that everyone who was holding humanity back from achieving its full potential was trapped under the dome.

    That makes sense the lake is actually the intracoastal waterway.

    So the lake must be on the border between North Carolina and Pennsylvania...

    Well, it's pretty much all been said. Like many of you, I'm about 101% sure that I'm out for S02. I really don't care what happens to ANYBODY in this story, probably mostly because the writing is so bad and the characters don't interest me in the least. But I'll hang for the rest of this season.

    I can't even imagine where this story could go and also agree that it should have just been a mini-series.

    Not liking Big Jim one iota, so I do hope that we get to see him offed before this season ends. Looks like he really put it to Barbie, however, so it's hard to see how he can get out of that mess.

    Having never owned a gun, is it true a gun leaves a residue on a person's hands when firing the gun? If so, you take both Barbie and Big Jim in to be tested.

    Adding to my prediction a couple eps ago that the dead will rise I will be the first I've heard to suggest a portal providing passage in and out of the dome will be discovered.

    This show is so bad it's making me reconsider reading the book that I bought months and months ago because everyone said it was so good.

    I can't stop watching though. I need to find out what idiotic thing they are going to do next week. :eek:

    My extensive experience as a watcher of many criminal investigation shows tells me this is true. :D

    My theory:
    The dome was actually a gigantic meteorite which crushed the entire town instantaneously. What we are seeing is everybody in Purgatory.

    Yeah, I was a fan of LOST too. ;)

    I thought the concept of Under the Dome was interesting. I watched the first three or four episodes and was more underwhelmed with each one. Then I found out it wasn't a mini-series and quit the show. I picked up the book instead. Finished it last night. It was leaps and bounds better than the show. I really enjoyed it. As with most of King's works, the ending left a bit to be desired, but the journey to get there was interesting enough.

    Maybe he was actually supposed to be sucking out liquid, but their budget for SFX was blown on the Cool Hwip clouds and they couldn't add the gross liquid being spat out.

    Worse yet, if you look closely, the wire disconnected as he connected it! Then, next scene, they are tightly wrapped around the generator connectors

    Maybe the dome fixed the wiring

    Or, wait...wait for it....Maybe they can use ENGLISH LETTERS, string them together to make WORDS, and then......ummmm..Sentences!!!!!

    My question is where did the outside world come from? Didn't the bomb the crap out of the dome and the outside was completely burned?

    Now, it looks just like normal outside and even better, when the kids touched the dome, they panned outside and there is still a neighborhood out there. Noone outside is curious to see inside? Noone outside tries to communicate with people a few feet away on their street?

    This is the most bizarre part. In the book, people communicated all over the place, heck, even the phones worked (When the army wanted them too).

    The book is totally different and is VERY GOOD! I really cannot believe Stephen King allowed this drivvel to be made out of it. OH BTW, I hated the ending in the book. I'm watching to see if the show can surpass the bad ending of the book!!!!

    Oh, totally! But it doesn't look like that's what will happen. This police 'force' seems to be particularly ineffective.

    I have never owned a gun either, but I watch a lot of true crime so it does seem that there w/b GSR on the shooter's hand. I don't know how long it lasts, though.

    But that was my thought, too, re: testing the hands of both of them. There was no evidence that Barbie shot anybody (since he didn't), but there would have been extensive evidence that Jim Bob DID. Next thing we saw was Barbie being arrested and, IIRC, Jim over at the radio station spouting off with this case against Barbie.

    It will be (mildly) interesting how that whole storyline plays out.
