Under the Dome 9/9/13

I'm starting to think Barbie is being framed.

Did CBS sell "Under The Dome" to SyFy so it could become part of their Shark series? As in jumping?

At some point, Big Jim will realize that sending Junior to guard something is a bad idea.

I missed a hell of a teaching moment with my kids while watching this. I should have paused the recording, turned to my kids and said "This is why smoking is bad for you."

Doesn't a show actually have to be good first to qualify for a shark jump?

This show never even got up on the water skis.

I propose "halved the calf" as shorthand for jumping the shark in the first 5 minutes of the pilot.

A lot of stupidity.

Spoiler:
Sorry, can't bring myself to really pay much attention when this show is on.

Barbie is taken to jail. He pleads with the sheriff: "do you really think I could have shot Red?". She almost thinks this is a reasonable argument, but comes back with "but What about her husband?". Now, Barbie should have had a reply involving the complete lack a body, which tends to make murder convictions difficult. But he just shuts up.

Big Jim frees the kids from the jail so he can gloat over Barbie alone. They face off, mano-a-manacles.
Barbie: "So Blofeld, do you expect me to talk?".
Jim: "No Mr Bond, I expect you to die! But before that I expect you to confess, in public, to many crimes that we both know you did not commit."
Barbie: "Never!".
Jim, twirling mustache: "If you don't, I shall frame Red for the murder of her husband, whose body we still don't have, plus I'll also frame those meddling kids because, uh, they've been seen talking to you, so must be guilty of arson and murder".

Barbie: "You fiend! Very well, I shall confess, but I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids. Oh by the way, how do I know you'll keep your end of the bargain?"
Jim:" You don't! YOU DON'T!!! Mwaahhahhhahhhaaa". Exit stage left.

Note to self, when bargaining with a man to falsely confess to capital murder, don't tell him that you're pretty much free to welch on your side of the deal so he has no incentive to carry through with his side.

Cut to candy-striper kid with Red in a closet in the hospital. Red regains consciousness. Candy-striper explains that there's a huge hunt on for them, so she decided that the hospital was the last place anyone would expect to find an unconscious gun-shot-wound victim. At least she qualifies that with "I may be stupid". She explains how they got there. She drove the ambulance to the hospital, wheeled Red out, took her through the hospital to the elevator, and down to the basement closet. Then she went back up through the hospital, to the waiting ambulance which she drove through town and hid behind a billboard (I swear I am not making this up), then walked back through town into the hospital, cleverly avoiding the manhunt going on for her all the while.

Red says she wasn't shot by Barbie, but by some strange woman she didn't know, but who looks like Raylan Givens' ex-wife.

Jim parades Barbie in front of a group of people, outside "this hall which you see in front of you today". Actual quote. He says that rules still apply. Not the rules of a fair trial where you are presented with evidence and witnesses against you, where you can defend yourself with the aid of an attorney, where you are judged by a jury of your peers. No, not those rules. But the rules where a murdering councilman can become prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner and everyone just goes along with it. So, Mr Barbie, how to you plead? Dramatic pause. Eye contact. Barbie: "Not Guil-cup, your honor! I mean, Not Guilty!". Musical crescendo. The End.

You need to throw your spin on the cocoon thing that was happening there at the end too.

Can anyone explain what delayed the show on the east coast? It didn't start until 10:24. Normally I start watching about 10:15 so I can skip ads. Instead The Big Bang Theory was on and a blurb at the bottom of the screen said Dome would start at 10:24 so I added an extra 30 minutes to the recording (the DVR didn't know the show started late).

Email alert (which arrived in the middle of Under the Dome) from CBS said:

Revised start times (CT) for tonight's CBS programs: 2.5 Men (7:54 PM), 2 Broke (8:24 PM), Big Bang (8:54 PM) and Under The Dome (9:24 PM) due to CBS live coverage of U.S. Open Tennis.

Also, saw that CBS is rebroadcasting the episode this Saturday:

Nothing like telling a sick, twisted bastard to his face that he is a sick, twisted bastid. And then tell him he's gonna pay? That's suicide. (As Dopee found out).

Apparently, mini-dome has no mass. It bounced around in that wagon like a beach ball.

Is Deputy Lupo finally coming around? Nobody, who wears a gun, should be that dense.

Yeah, cause they couldn't cancel a rerun so the only first run show of the night could be on time. CBS is stupid.

And Joe Carroll's ex-wife. That woman gets around.

Your synopsis is very, very, very well played, sir. You win the internets for the rest of the week.

Thanks. I skipped the subplot with the screaming mini-dome being covered up by skater-boy with 47 blankets he has in his room, and the subtle under-cover tailing of the kids in a freakin' black-and-white squad car because I didn't want to undermine the gravitas of that particular plot line.

Actually not. It's been renewed for a second season.

We need a symbol or typeface to indicate sarcasm.
"Oh crap, that's right..."
Meaning, oh crap - this is not going to be wrapped up and we will have to suffer through this again next summer.

Like most people, my Tivo only caught the first half of the show. After watching ther first half, I have no desire to watch the rest. I'm done with the dome.

I couldn't help wondering what all those people were doing there in the first place. It's not like they could have heard about the big event on the radio.

I did stop to wonder why anyone has that many blankets in his room in the middle of summer.
