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.

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?

Big Jim is the DEA brother in law from Breaking Bad.

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.

In episode 2:
Spoiler:
The basis of the "we're led to believe" is that in the second episode water was coming through the dome when, from the outside, the military was spraying the dome using a firehose (or some other powerful stream of water). While that doesn't necessarily mean any amount of air would also come through, forcefully sprayed or otherwise, but it leads one to suspect it might.

I think it was the "not enough" part that Langree was questioning.

I probably wasn't paying close enough attention, but was this the same girl?

Girl sleeping with Junior
Girl working at diner
Girl at home with little brother
Girl hitting on Barbie
Girl kidnapped by Junior

For some reason I thought 1-3 (Angie) was a different girl than 4-5 (who I know Junior called Angie, but I thought he was just being psycho).

Yep, all the same girl. She's just the most mobile person in the entire town.

If there wasn't a dome over this town I would have no interest in any of these characters. Unfortunately, since the dome seems to be secondary to the characters on this show, there's no reason to watch. I'm sure I'll still follow these threads to read if anything changes, but I doubt it.

I picked up the series at episode 2. Can someone summarize what we learned about propane in the premiere?

Nothing really. You just got the idea that Big Jim was up to something sinister.
