    True, just trying to give the writers an excuse for having the OTD people not treating the dome people like they don't exist.

    Plus I need to find a generator that is as quiet as the one the turned on at the bar, that was awesome.


    On second thought, the only OTD vehicle we saw hit it was the truck and the driver might have not been paying attention ( don't text and drive!) and not expect a wall in the middle of the road and hit it. The firefighters while appearing to react to the police officer in the road might have just been reacting to a a wall blocking the road and stopping.

    The Dome "does not come down".

    It appears simultaneously, EVERYWHERE. It's the only thing that makes logical sense.

    What I meant by it going down is that it is underground as well. You can't dig underneath it. So it's probably more like a sphere than it is a dome.

    I thought the story wasn't about the Dome or how it got there? But that it is about the interactions of the people trapped inside the Dome?

    Anyway I enjoyed the second epsiode. Although I would have preferred that they not have killed off the Lawn Mower Man.

    It seems like this show is getting good ratings. I see it had a 2.9 rating yesterday with 11.8 million viewers. Easily the top show of the night. And the first epsiode was the top show the previous week.

    Ah yes! That's who she is. She played one of Sabrina's Aunts. I knew I remembered her voice but she looks a little different.

    The IMDb is not very consistent. Her character does not show up at all in the full cast list yet on the link above for the actress it does show her character on the Dome!

    I thought exactly the same thing!


    Agreed. But the interactions of the people would have depended on the Dome and all the problems it will cause. In the case of crazy Jr and the girl there is nothing specific to the dome that's needed for that interaction to happen. They could easily eliminate that plot line and it would have no effect on the show!

    Jr would have commited suicide if the Dome hadn't occured. He was just getting ready to kill himself when the Dome appeared and he changed his mind..

    On that we agree. It's just that the part that they do see above them, makes them think it's a DOME.

    will they have story lines originating outside the dome? I.e. will we get introduced to military, government, or scientists investigating and trying to figure out what it is?

    I was pretty underwhelmed by this ep. I liked the premiere, but this one was meh.

    Oh well, I'll probably keep watching. Not like there is anything else on.

    I could not help but laugh at the silly bucket brigade. Tossing water into the doorway of the house. And only the doorway. Went about two feet inside. Like that's gonna do something.


    "Hank" is catching on to Barbie a lot more quickly than he did to Heisenberg

    No longer sympathetic towards her.

    The new self-appointed (?) sheriff is a bad-azz. :up:

    Why. I can think of logical reasons for either option.

    I may have been spoiled by the book but I thought episode 2 was a disappointment compared to number 1. It's good vs evil and in this version the good aren't as good as they are in the book and the evil are *far* less evil (so far). That gave you a strong rooting interest in the book but I'm not getting it as much in the series. I'm also noticing that, unlike the book, they are avoiding angering the religious right. Can't lose those ratings. :)

    I also agree the acting isn't the best.

    Not good with remembering names. Who is "Hank" and who is Heisenberg.

    These people are not behaving like real people would. If a major snowstorm is predicted people run to supermarkets to stock up on the basics. Knowing that nothing is going to be delivered from the outside, the stores should already be empty of bread, eggs, milk and cereal.
    After hurricane Sandy, power was lost for weeks in some places and finding a gas station with power was difficult resulting in lines that stretched for blocks at the few stations that were open. You drove as little as possible. Here there are no gas lines (are any stations open?) If there are no gas stations open people should do more biking than driving.

    The girl trapped in the bomb shelter. How long will it be before someone reports her missing?

    "Hank" is the mayor. He plays a DEA agent (Hank) in Breaking Bad, and Heisenberg is his white whale.
