Eh, the dome will make it rain from the sky when it's a dramatically tense enough moment to do so.

You can't imagine a condomnado or a diaphramicane?

I'm sure someone over at the SyFy Channel can.

Honestly I tried to like the show but frankly I have given up on it. I did not see the last two episode's; deleted them from the DVR because it doesn't seem to be going anyway. Just a bunch of melodrama and too much BS for me. I hope it gets great and I have to go back and watch it but to be honest I'm glad that I'm not wasting anymore of my time with this.

No, I agree. The show is a lot of melodrama and nonsense and I'm only watching because I get some fun out of bad shows and, well, Julia.

It's definitely not a great show, but it's a pretty decent guilty pleasure I think. Of course it probably helps that it's running during the summer when there aren't a lot of other options. Lol

Yes, she is the ONLY reason I have lasted this long; a really beautiful woman for sure. I can't stand "Jr." . . . or pretty much anyone else, lol.

The red-hair, man, all in the red hair. Her lovey-dovey post-coital scene in this episode was really worth the entire episode.

"Junior" needs to go away and I sure hope they're not trying to do a "character redemption" on him

Have they explained why no one tries digging out a shallow trench under the rim of the dome? It's not a sphere and appears to only penetrate the ground by a foot at most.

My eyes are getting the workout of a lifetime with all the constant rolling this show causes them but dammit I cannot stop watching the damn thing.

Actually, it is a sphere. It's encapsulated the whole area, not just put a dome on top of it. The Title's a misnomer.

Sure, if by "a foot at most" you mean "at least deep enough that some really deep underground tunnels were affected, too" and if by "no one tries digging out a shallow trench" you mean "they did try digging under it," you're spot on.

What I learned last night: You can blow up a well head and it will drain the well into a resevoir.

I have been letting episodes stack up, but this has prompted me to get caught up.

You got a problem with that?!?!? Sounds to me like you just want to control the well for yourself
