More than having fight clubs and building gallows anyway.
At least the picture seems to show that the damage is still there, though it was easy to miss in when viewing the episode.

I guess that is damage. With the way the lighting is, I thought it was dome's shadow.

I agree. I live in a community just outside a dormant volcanic formation called the Sutter Buttes, which gets billed as the "smallest mountain range in the world". It's a neat marketing term for tourism, but pretty inaccurate. At any rate, it's a 40 mile drive (or bike ride) around them, and neatly, ten miles across. Notice the surrounding crops in comparison to those around the dome.

I am pretty sure there were other scenes in the same episode that clearly showed the damage too. Maybe when the dome just started turning dark.

Was there anything in the previous episodes that gave you hope of improvement?

I don't know exactly how much time supposedly passed between the dome going black and then going white, but I do know there was plenty of time for the clouds outside the dome to move and change, but only some on the right side of the dome changed in any way.

I hung in there for a payoff, but there was none. What was the dome in the book? I just want an answer. I don't want to suffer thru another season of this dreck.

Yeah, I deleted the SP. Not going to read the spoiler, since I'll eventually read the book, but there's no way I'm going to keep watching this next year.

My mom was honestly surprised at my reaction to it. She actually LIKED the show!

By "They" you mean Stephen King.

The ending is the most common issue brought up about the book.

I wrote "he" not "they." I know of whom I wrote. Mr. King had an unfinished story that he finished after the Simpsons Movie. He must have been watching old Twilight Zone reruns also.

The Twilight Zone would be the correct show to receive credit, as the Simpsons episode was a parody of it.

Yes. It was. But since King have up on his book before the movie and finished it after, I like to think it has some influence.

I watched it again a few days ago. The idiot people of Springfield reacted more normally in the first days than did those in Under the Dome.

I thought "Under the Dome" was supposed to be a mini-series with a start and a finish in the same television season... Guess I was wrong... I thought I would get the satisfaction of finishing this off...instead I have to wait...

A series designed with a start and a finish is something US network executives do not comprehend. That can only happen in the UK.

When the show was first touted, a year or so ago, it was a closed end mini-series. As it got closer to air date, it became "well, it's designed as a single season, but we'll see how it does and decide then". Then once the ratings were decent, it was "oh yeah, we have plans for many years to come..."

This of course destroyed any chance this show had of being decent. Instead of being able to create a coherent 12 episode story, they had to leave plots open so as to create fodder for year two. And three. And four. It didn't help that the story turned into a muddled mess.

It's our own fault for watching it, even if only to mock it

Well, to be fair, the concept was great and the pilot was decent.
The rest, well......

I was kind of hoping it would follow the book, except the really lame/stupid ending. Figured S. King would have come up with a better ending for the mini series. He did, ANOTHER SEASON!

side note: I've been watching old eps of "Grounded For Life" on abc family and Lily's boyfriend, Dean, looked familiar, but I couldn't quite place him. Then I got it, it's Barbie (Mike Vogel).
