Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

I think they could've taken a lesson from True Blood. They wrap up their seasons like it's only contained series and re-introduce a villain every season. We could've gone this year with the farmers versus the townfolk or something.

And if you are going to have a character like Maxine, have her be a little more reserved. She looks like she's been running the town, yet we've never heard of her. Maybe she's biding her time, doing little things, not running a damn fight club.

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

So this big villain that is supposed to keep Big Jim and Barbie at bay is dead after two or three episodes? In a red-shirt kind of death?

Glad to see Big Jim vs. Barbie though. Seems like it took forever to get to the logical standoff.

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

Cop lady seem to rather easily and quickly accept that Big Jim's lies about Barbie were true. Yes, Cop Lady, Barbie shot Julia in the shoulder (though he's shown himself to be a bit better shot) and then rushed her to the hospital and worked tirelessly to save her life. Boy is she going to feel like an ass when she wakes up and says she was shot by "some blonde lady." And, yeah, just go ahead and accept that Barbie shot Julia, the two baddies at the quarry and drowned some random woman in the lake. It just ALLLLLL makes sense, doesn't it. Then go and taint your only pool of jury members by telling them all Barbie did this. Fair trial my ass.

God, this show is a wreck. Though the mystery stuff with the "kids" and the mini-dome is getting pretty good and Julia's naked midriff and barefoot so there's also that.

This show is just a wreck but I can't stop watching it!

I actually also, in part, want to get the DVD set because I like the dome/snowglobe packaging.

Well, the whole thing about Barbie being framed for things he didn't do was from the Novel.

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

Did I miss the advert where they tell you that there's a phone in vote where the public decides if it is Julia or Maxine who is going to die?

"Only you can decide where Barbie dips his wick! The power is yours!"

Shit if it's my choice gotta keep Maxine. Yes she's a silly cartoon villain, but that is still somehow less dull than the redhead in this show.

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

But when was the last time you saw a guy give such a sexy lungjob?

You know how to give a lungjob don't you?

You just stick your lips together and suck.

That doesn't mean it makes sense or that the show has properly built up to it.

Shut your mouth! Julia is the closest thing this show HAS to a character.

It makes perfect since if that cop has an IQ of 46.

Linda is a fricking idiot.

I assume that she's being written as developmentally challenged, because every decision she has made has been awful.

Ummmm...

...awful.
Phew! Was worried there you were going to go in a pretty awkward area. But, yeah, she's made a lot of bad decisions Other hints include making Junior a deputy. Which I guess his character redemption arc is over since now it seems even what's-her-name (Angie?) sort-of trusts him now. I mean it's not like a week and a half or so ago she was peeing and pooping herself in his rape dungeon. Er, storm shelter.

I am glad mustache-twirling lady villain is gone. Sheesh was her coming-out-of-nowhereness villainy getting old. And, yes, honey, walk around an abandoned mine in 3-inch heels, I bet that will work out well for you.

And, WOW! Did you see how easy and convenient it is to use that Toyota Plug-In Hybrid?! There's even convenient charging stations at your local clinic that's been without major power for over a week! (I doubt the back-up generators are running the recharger for the single electric car in town and are going to more critical systems.)

And, wow, for a kid who's only had some driving lessons he sure maneuvered around the storm debris and falling branches nicely. I've been driving for 20 years and I doubt I could pull that kind of stunt-driving off.

Gran Turismo PS3 and teenage reflexes bro. Just like Beggar's Canyon back home. Though really, he probably could have just driven through that wimpy tree with no ill effects, what with the advanced safety features of said Toyota Hybrid, lease today for an affordable payment of just $250 per month, order today with our easy to use Toyota app exclusively available on Windows 8 Tablets and Windows Phone.

And, remember, all Windows 8 Tablets are immune to the electronics-ruining properties of mysterious alien domes!

This show is so ridiculous. The acting is soap opera quality; especially the teenagers. I don't think it's the actors fault, though. The dialogue is just terrrrrible. I can't believe I'm still watching. Probably not next season.
