    I'm no expert, but I expect that a lab is required for the test, or, if not, the writers' explanation would be that whoever has the expertise to perform such a test was caught outside the dome.

    All evidence says, "No."

    [Note: I seem to be in the minority in that I actually liked the ending of the book, liked it quite a lot in fact. That said, last night's episode was so appallingly stupid that there are only two reasons I'm not quitting now: My wife still likes it for some reason (she also made me watch The Following for longer than I otherwise would have, although even she gave up after the episode where all the additional mob of followers started streaming out of the mansion-like house), and I would like to see how the writers will explain the dome--but only if they do so this year. Oh, and I did like the last few minutes; those at least were interesting.]

    This isn't a book forum. If you want to talk about a book then go to a book forum.

    On CSI and derivatives, they always do the test either out in the field or while interrogating the person. It's just some chemical that they spray on a cotton pad and then dab at the person's hands and it changes color if there's gunpowder residue.

    Never watched CSI, but that makes sense too.

    English? This show takes place in 'merca not England. They'd have just as much luck using the Vietnamese alphabet.

    This ain't no Shawshank Redemption that's for sure. These stupid but popular shows seem to be a recent trend. Revolution, The Following etc..

    I don't mind it, at least it's sci fi and I don't need to read another S.K. 1000+ page book. Had my fill of his overwriting with 11-22-63.

    I'll stick out the season but I'm not giving this a chance if it's around for a second season.

    "Under the Dumb" didn't work; maybe we should try "Under the Done" to see if that could get it canceled.

    Nah, it would take people not watching it. And since Americans are too dang stupid to know how dang stupid this show is and GET OFF MY LAWN YOU DANG KIDS!, it will probably run for decades.

    ;)

    The worst part about this show being renewed for another season is that it will prevent Dean Norris from being in something that's actually good.

    Yes, gunpowder residue from when the firing pin strikes.

    As for "testing", back in the olden days they would use paraffin wax.

    a test in which a paraffin cast of the hand of a person suspected of firing a gun is subjected to chemical analysis to determine the presence of powder particles

    So yes, with the tools in the hospital they would be able to to get preliminary result.

    The thing is, both of them have fired weapons recently, they would both come up positive.

    When red wakes up she's going to blow up Big Jim's story about Max being an innocent reputable businesswoman.

    Well, he should at least have enough downtime to be in a movie.

    But Linda should already know this, between Duke's confession letter and the tape of Max paying him off.
