I didn't notice that at all. Guess I need to watch more carefully or miss what is being shoved.
Yeah. Cause actually including people who exist is shoving it down your throat.
Then start another thread and talk to your heart's delight. Seriously. I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, I simply want to watch this series without worrying about spoilers, or what the book did or didn't do. I'm watching a TV show.
As an aside, I don't have any problems with the concept of book vs TV discussion. I've read the Game of Thrones books, and was very active in the separate thread created for those who had read the books to discuss the TV show versus the books. I also understood why the non-book readers wanted us away in our own discussion.
So please do the same here.
I guess I'm just blind to it. I never even thought about it that way. I assumed it was a mom and a daughter, and a friend along for the ride. Regardless of what or who they were, they're just people. What possible difference can it make to the average viewer, especially when it's as subtle (or non-existent) as this was?
No, I don't think that she is a prostitute either. I guess I sided with Junior more than I realized and felt like she got over him too quickly.
Not saying I would kidnap her and lock her up in a fallout shelter though.
You know how hilarious you guys sound when you use that phrase, right? And you do it just about every time...
Just think of them as political versions of product placements.
You raised her so well so that she was annucinated so quickly.
No response as of yet.
I had to check IMDB to make sure I wasn't imagining things. They're almost clones when in uniform.
If this was mentioned earlier, I may have missed it amongst book discussion.
I laughed at Junior saying to Barbie 'Be Seeing You' when the reporter showed up. Classic reference to The Prisoner, which was essentially a 'Dome' show.
And just to clarify, the girlfriend of Junior and the sister in the Home Alone kids pair are the same person.
I won't be reading the book as I don't really care for King but I am enjoying the show.
That was a really dumb remark about Hollywood shoving homosexuality down people's throats by the way
Thanks, I've been meaning to go back and check that
I'm guessing that donnoh will be participating in the Family Research Council's "On Our Knees for America", too.
I actually meant to rewatch it too. I was certain it was the same girl, but the other 4 people in the family watching with me assured me that I was crazy. Now I will do it just to prove that I was not crazy (this time).
I agree! Why CBS made that major change just to add "mystery" is absurd! Are they afraid they won't attrack their usual "procedural" viewers?
Letter from Stephen King
Interesting letter from King, thanks for posting. But a warning to those who haven't read the book...there be lots o spoilers there.
One thing that makes me happy,
they are changing the source of the Dome. Yippee!
He makes a good point. For him to write something like that, I imagine he must have been getting a LOT of flak from reader-viewers. People should give the show a chance; it's only had one episode so far (and a pretty good one, IMHO).
Totally agree. I am irritated with the Amazon.com negative reviewers since they haven't seen enough of the show to write anything useful, IMO.
(I didn't read King's comments because I never read the book.)
