Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

So you fall down the tunnel under the school and you wind up in Barbie's hometown Zenith...WTF? And I'm guessing that the red door seen at the end of the episode leads back to Chester's Mill. Oooo-kay.......they're just flinging all kinds of shit at the wall on this show, ain't they?

Also Barbie's Dad confirms that the MOAB bomb destroyed half the area surrounding the Dome. I think the show explained that visually but I think that this is the first time that it was said by a character in the series.

Not sure if you guys heard, but Barbie's dad does things in business.

Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

Why does it have to be a government cover-up? Are Americans so afraid of their leaders?

Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

What government coverup?

I thought it was just an information blackout.

Would Chesters Mill go insane if they could talk to the real world?

It's just about health and safety.

Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

It's possible that he, the actor, might not be able to act anymore.

On Chelsea lately last month, she told him that he should stop sticking his tongue out all the time because it's gross, and he says "No I never, I don't... Do I?"

He's screwed.

Hell, I'm still boggling that they've pretty much made Junior one of the "good guys" on the show.

Right? It's even worse because the show's timeline has only been about two weeks. So all of that literally happened last week.

I'm a couple episodes behind on the show, but, man this is the most ridiculous show on TV.

Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

If it's too dangerous for everyone to leave through the magical portal in the cave under the locker in the school that's in the middle of the dome that was shown to be forest last season (ie, a week ago in show time), why is it that Lyle was able to get out and move freely until he got busted for being mental, and Sam is still out moving about freely, and Barbie was out moving about freely until his old stealin' buddies assaulted him and he contacted his evil dad and Mr. Special Forces badass set off an obvious trap and approached the dome in open ground where he was caught in under five minutes?

Is it just that Barbie knows that everyone else in the town is as stupid or crazy as him and Lyle and will be caught in minutes, because otherwise it seems like getting out isn't all that dangerous. EvilCorp has apparently got one nerd watching the CCTV feeds part time, and even he helped Barbie, so what's the problem?

Is it like the Nexus in Generations where they say it's impossible to get there in a ship, except you know, Guinan and Soran and the other El Aurians got there in a ship the first time, and Kirk got there in a ship... I mean, if you don't mind the ship exploding after you're in an eternal bliss (and why would you?) going there in a ship seems like a much easier option than blowing up a star and committing genocide. Or just rent a shuttle and spacewalk into the thing. But I digress... The tunnel seems like a viable option to escape the dome here.

Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

17 days just seems so unrealistic with all that has gone on. Has anyone counted how many days and nights in the episodes they have gone through to see if that lines up.

I can't even rationally explain why I'm still watching this show as is, and you want us to go back and rewatch to count the days? To hell with that, sir.

I love that Julia and Barbie act like an old married couple already when they just met. Like a few episodes back when the girl from the past arrived and Barbie said "You brought her into OUR house?" I was like, dude, you just moved in yourself last week, and you guys have already had two breakups that apparently lasted about half a day each. And now they have secret lover's email code and everything.

Re: Under the Dome, Season 2 Thread

Julia really looks like a tramp to learn her husband died and a couple days latter give herself to the guy that killed him. True, her husband was a dirtbag but still..
