    to me, it looked like it "came down" because it seemed to impact the ground from above, as opposed to pushing up through the ground from below.

    I checked it out in slow motion and one frame at a time. It clearly comes from above. It's first visible (as visible as an invisible barrier can be) above the cow and then it hits the ground throwing dust in the air.

    It comes down, which explains the air shift as well. If it just appeared there wouldn't have been all that wind.

    Until they need to pump it. All that propane is awfully convenient.

    Don't cut any down to heat the homes in the winter.

    Maybe. I could picture higher altitude winds, suddenly blocked by the dome, coming down inside the wall until settled. Did we see wind on outside as well as the inside?

    I don't get all this talk about it being a sphere. The show is called "Under the Dome". Wouldn't that be your first clue that it's a dome?

    Well, the Dome is just the half of the sphere that they can see. In a couple of weeks, they'll change the name of the show to "Inside the Sphere."

    I thought Stephan Kings stories all took place in Maine?

    Many, but not all.

    That said, this isn't really a Stephen King story -- it's a TV series adaptation (primarily by Brian K. Vaughan) of a Stephen King story.

    I heard Bill Maher will be coming on as show runner, and it will be retitled "Inside the Bubble". ;)

    Actually, wouldn't a bigger problem be heat retention? That dome is basically a huge greenhouse...

    It might be, if the dome were made of glass. But it's not, and there's no reason so far to think that the dome is opaque to infrared.

    Many of the best ones take place on an alternative world.

    The Simpson's Movie was on TV this weekend and they showed a possible explanation of how the dome was put in place.

    Is the actor who plays Big Jim famous from somewhere else? He looks a lot like Michael Chiklis to me.

    I think it would be interesting if they showed some action from outside the dome. Where is the media?

    So if water (H2O) can make it through, then oxygen alone can make it through, right???
    (or is O2 actually bigger than H2O?)

    So they won't suffocate? (Though yes, there are plants inside, and light is coming through.. so theoretically the plants are getting sufficient light to keep turning CO2 back to O2.)

    Some Oxygen passes through, but not enough.... We're led to believe.
