    This is a perfect analogy! Haha.

    I feel a little bad for Dean Norris. He deserves better.

    My theory was that she was podding them so the dome could fly them to an alien planet. Podding would keep them from getting splattered as the domeship engages it's warp drive.

    I kept telling my wife, "just wait and see, somehow Julia and Big Jim will end up down here so they can be podded too". They did, I was excited that my theory was about to be proven true, ..., and then Big Jim smashed the egg and caused all the pods to be broken.

    I guess Melanie forgot how to pod people after she podded Junior.

    So now everyone gets to go back up to the surface, where we can resume "catastrophe of the week" episodes.

    This remains my favorite really stupid show.

    And they will all have to cross that rickety ladder. Should be interesting.

    They better beware of those angry butterflies. As we all know, those beautiful creatures can be deadly!

    Then what's the point about getting them to "move on?" To accept the Matrix so the ship can use their unused brain power to make calculations?

    I'm reminded of a star trek episode...

    If I tried that, the latter would surely snap and I would fall to my death.

    They'll probably just fall and be teleported to the surface.

    Do I have to say that butterflies can't bite? Of course, I realize that these are magical Dome butterflies rather than normal Earth butterflies, so I guess they can do whatever.

    None of us do, yet. Although she mentioned that she was trying to "fix" the people, to make them suitable to her purpose, whatever that may be.

    We saw how much trouble Barbie had with the retconning of Junior's fate. I can only imagine it being much worse if Melanie had tried to do that with Julia, too.

    Not impressed, found myself looking at my watch. Perhaps watching the Netflix clone didn't help

    I started reading the book, and will probably just finish that, and catch this when I can.

    I really hate when they throw in unnecessary political comments, it takes me out of the story.

    To me it feels as if we got a whole new set of writers who are rebooting the backstory and direction of the show. Not that it was making all that much sense before...

    With all the absurdities we have seen in this show, are we really going to focus on biting butterflies? When they are obviously alien butterflies in the first place? It won't bother me if they bite, spit or shot lasers out of their eyes, they are a tool of the egg and hence have any magic power they egg decides they need.

    Stephen King must have been on the good stuff again.

    See, to me, that's not obvious. My assumption would have been that they were merely regular butterflies under the control of aliens. But now, I have to revise that idea.

    And yes, this is as important as anything else in this stupid show. ;)

    The best is how we are supposed to believe it has only been three weeks since the dome came down on them. That right there tells you how little respect the writers have for their audience. Think about how much happened in the first two seasons and they are trying to sell us that all these events happened in just 21 days???? You kidding me?

    I read the Stephen King book, and he can't really be held responsible for anything this season or most of the last one.

    To be fair, the producers stated from the beginning that one episode was about one day.
    So it's about 28 days in now.

    That said, they can't keep that up because Colin Ford and Mackenzie Lintz have visibly aged more than a month.

    I'm pretty sure that's why a virtual year has passed in the pods.

    So no one noticed that after she killed that kid, a butterfly appeared? I think those butterflies are the remnants of people that were killed, maybe by the dome or in the dome? Not sure.

    i am pretty sure they just making things up as they go along.

    I fast forwarded through the 2 hour premiere after groaning that it was 2 hours.
    Half way through the 2nd episode i saved myself and deleted the SP.
    Then went and deleted Extant too.:up:

    It's funny that they're making it look like Big Jim is the one who's onto to whole thing, and may save the day. He's a psychopath, but he ain't stupid. :up:
