Under The Dome - "Blue on Blue" - 7/22/13

Umm, WTF! Bomb shelter gurl gets out and when Crazy boy shows up, she comforts him? I know about the Stockholm Syndrome, but come on!

Yep, Big Jim is as crazy as expected. Even though he did release the girl. But, he did kill the Rev.

I'm no meteorologist, so how does wind blow inside the dome? Also, I didn't realize that Chet's Mill borders on the ocean.

I assume that this is set in contemporary times, so I'd love to see how Jay Carney will spin the WH okaying the release of MOAB on an American city. BTW, the blast radius of that thing is HUGE! What's next, nukes?

I believe the wind is due to the major suckage encompassed under the dome.

Shouldn't they be out of air by now?

Unless it blows as well as sucks...

Hot Redhead sure forgave Barbie quickly.

I've been waiting for that since ep. 1. Although, I'm completely befuddled by Angie's reaction.

Wonder what will happen when she finds out that Barbie whacked her hubby? Or, if she will even care.

This one still seems to be moving horribly slowly with no real sense of direction. I haven't dumped the season pass yet but am getting closer to it. I read the book and loved it, so am disappointed that the TV adaptation is not as good.

It seemed weird that people were so eager to stay above ground knowing that they could die. I understand the Sheriff and her motivation, but what was the point of the reporter and Barbie going out to find the kids knowing there was not enough time to find them and bring them back?

I truly do not get Angie's motivations in almost anything that she does.

Oh, well. I hope it gets better. It's a good thing it is summer and there isn't much else on!

Is it just me or does the actress who plays Angie look a lot like a younger Hayden Penatierre (sp?)

You realize whenever you say "She looks like a younger [23-year-old actress]," you make the 23-year-old actress die just a little inside?

But yes, you have a point. (Which probably killed poor Hayden just a little more.)

Especially when the 23 year old actress is only 8 months older.

Don't get near the dome with anything electric... oh except an ad for a Windows tablet. That's OK there Cop's boyfriend on the outside. Just slide that tab over and write her a message, no worries about all the other nearby electronics exploding.

You just got out of being imprisoned by a lunatic... perfect time to pet his head and comfort him.

You want to blow up the Dome to keep it from doing god knows what, why start with something smaller to test it? Go straight for the biggest bomb possible! Hey - it has been three days, killing everyone inside makes perfect sense at this point in time.

If anyone thought they were getting out of the dome anytime soon, that bomb hitting it and not leaving a scratch should make them realize they are going to be there for a long while.

I guess that Microsoft Marketing wouldn't allow them to blow up a Surface tablet.


I also had to laugh at how Joe had switched to a Windows Phone this episode as well.

To be fair, we don't know what other methods the Government may or may not have tried.

When the dome is reflecting 50 BMG right back at you I imagine bombs look much safer.

Convection currents, just like on the outside.

Barbie was trying to collect from him, they struggled, the gun went off.

They showed it later, in a flashback.

And if the writers (sic) hold true to their path, we never really will.

I would drop this SP, but I'm holding out for a musical episode and then maybe a tie in with either Ice Road Truckers or WWE Friday Night Smackdown.

She was his girlfriend before he went crazy. They both thought they were going to die. I don't think it was unreasonable.

The Rev was crazy, and a threat. Killing him was arguably a rational act.

It's quite a large volume of air. All it needs for wind is for one area to be a little hotter than another, which can happen due to differences in albedo, etc.

Did you know, rain clouds can form inside of places like NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building and the Facebook data center? The Chester's Mill dome is much bigger than that.

Quote:
What's next, nukes?
Nukes would produce radiation, and it probably would get through the dome, still (I'd bet) leaving it intact, while poisoning the life inside. Meanwhile, it would contaminate the surrounding area in a semi-permanent way, and the fallout could spread even further on the wind. That's probably a bridge too far for the feds, even as implausibly trigger-happy as they've been so far.

I was surprised at Barbie et al. just assuming that the MOAB would break the dome, knowing as little about the dome's properties as they do. Of course, they don't know they're on a TV show, so they didn't know it would fail the way the viewers did. But they should've been less certain.

Maybe the effect doesn't occur on the outside? Or, the outsiders just haven't run into it yet? (God knows they weren't listening to anything the insiders could've told them about it, for whatever unexplained reason.)

on the off chance someone inside the dome survives and eventually gets out, wouldn't the military consider warning the citizens to back away from the bomb's point of impact, to say, just suppose, lower the number of any potential casualties? what's the point of getting inside if you're making decisions that could kill everyone who's trapped? at what point did the government declare war on the town?

if i were inside, and the military was bombing my town without provocation or any warning, that'd probably be at the top of a list of things i'd want to address with an attorney as soon as i got out. but that's just me.

this show might have one more episode left before the sp goes the way of the clear button.

Seriously, how does something like this even get into the story? Of all the improbable things that have happened so far, this is the least probable of them all. That's especially so if we are to believe it's only been a few days.

They (Barbie, I think?) stated in the show that the goal was to destroy the dome, not to get in. The reason was that it's generating weird, strong magnetic fields, and the feds "won't stand for that". (Why? I dunno.) Not very well justified, IMHO, but anyway.

The product placement in this episode was Smallville-level bad. At least that show was more grounded in reality.
