Speaking of which, I'm glad the Rev got dispatched. He was annoying.

Another peeve for me was them making MOAB into a missile. It is a gravity bomb, but that wouldn't be as spectacular since it has no flame trail as it is about to hit.

I don't have as clever an answer as the "major suckage" comment, but according to http://www.cleveland.com/tv-blog/ind...the_rules.html, here are the "rules" for the dome:

* You experience a shock the first time you touch the DOME, but after that you will not.

* Warning: Those pacemakers or other battery-operated equipment should never touch the DOME!

* The DOME is semi-permeable. Trace amounts of water can pass through both ways.

* The DOME produces its own micro-climate.

* Clouds can gather inside the DOME.

* There will be wind inside the DOME.

* Climate change on Earth is NOT affecting the DOME.

* No phone calls can be made inside the DOME.

* There is no wi-fi inside the DOME.

* There are no TV signals inside the DOME.

I remember her from The Secret Circle. It was a short lived series about witches on the CW. Although I couldn't place her until I looked at your IMDB link and saw what she had starred in.

A bit off topic, but maybe someone here knows. My local affiliate was promoting that night's news with something along the lines of "Stephen King has a new book he does not want you to read". Any idea what they were talking about? I'd guess it was typical 11 o'clock news hype that had nothing to do with the actual story.

Stephen King has a new novel, Joyland, and made some comments about it not being available as an ebook. The news story is probably about that.

If wifi and television don't work inside the dome, how does the local radio station and the police radio work?

I think the only reason there's no TV inside the dome is that there are no TV stations inside the dome, and the outside signals aren't penetrating. Dunno about wifi, but they might just mean there are no Internet connections from outside, therefore wifi inside doesn't do much.

It's a pretty goofy list -- why bring up climate change? That's a slow, subtle process even out here. Unless it's a hint that something catastrophic is about to happen to the rest of the world (in the show)...

Good article about the show:
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/liv...vaughan-590422

It talks about next week and the show's future. Not really any major spoilers, other than to suggest...
Spoiler:
The show is coming back next summer, and these people will be trapped under the dome for a long, long time. So this is not going to wrap up any time soon.

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.



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.)
Stephen King?

Junior - "It's not over". Please let it be. The most boring part of the show.

Deputy Dawg laughing when the bomb doesn't save them. "Thank God we're still trapped in here"

Want to see chrome dome alderman start kicking ass and taking names. Enough of the good guy act.

I found myself bored while watching this episode. Maybe it was me - I just watched last night and I had had a pretty craptacular day.

Anyway, weird episode. Weird about the father leaving the girl, then he comes back and lets her go. WTF? What did he have to think about there? Then her comforting idiot boy.

The bomb thing was kind of interesting but mostly weird.

I don't know - this was the first episode that left me almost wishing I had that 42 minutes back.

Mainly, I assume he was thinking about what effect it would have on Junior if she were let go -- namely, she's likely to report Junior to the cop, etc.

The worst part about the stupid bomb plot is that not a single viewer (you know, the ones the show is for) thought they were going to die. It would end the show.


I don't even want to comment on the stupidity in next weeks scenes.

At this point, this show is so bad, I'm enjoying laughing at it.

BTW, just how big is this town? Looked like there were all of a couple dozen folks in the mill.

Another gem from my son when Big Jim cut the girl loose and sat on the bed talking to her. He exclaimed "why is she sitting there talking to him? RUN!"

OTOH, he was very tense about the bomb until I explained to him why they could not possibly die.

So the jury is still out on him

I seem to recall someone saying the dome encompassed 10 square miles. But don't count on my memory.

He's deputized. He's not a real cop, but it's an emergency.

I thought it was that the dome was 10 miles across which I think would give them about 78 square miles inside.

Do people who are deputized in emergencies get badges and uniforms?
