  • Mission Failure.

    6.0
    What I really hate about this episode was the military. Cowards didn't care about the people trapped in there when they decided to destroy it with a MOAB. A mission that was a complete failure by the way. It was like a scene from Independence Day when they tried to nuke that alien space ship. So coodles to those dumb ass cowards running the government and the millitary. I still would like to see what happens next and how it pans out in the end.moreless

    "MOAB" stands for Mother of All Bombs, a class of bunker buster bombs weighing 10-20,000 lbs. They're much too heavy to launch by a missile and have to be dropped by a heavy bomber or cargo plane. Being non-nuclear, there was no way the whole population was in danger with the dome being about 10 miles in diameter. The military could have just warned them to assemble on the opposite side of the dome they planned to hit. It was easily predictable the bomb wouldn't work since that would be the end of the series. And I'm still waiting for someone to bring out a backhoe to see how deep the dome went. With food and water running low, that should be high priority.moreless
  • Thank god!

    Usually governments in series are slow to unleash their big weapons, both metaphorical and literal, yet UtD has covered it in only one episode.



    The removal of the obnoxious priest is certainly a plus for me to continue watching :P
  • Yikes!!

    1.5
    Painful!! Irrational. Disjointed. It's still better than "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century", the worst show on tv.
  • Tedious

    7.0
    Once you go for the MOAB, there's really nothing more impressive you can throw at a storyline and keep it believable. Nukes don't work. They've now got a barrier wasteland around Chester's Mill that will prevent any action from outside the dome. Inside, the emotions and reactions were probably the most real they've ever been in the show, but still frustrating beyond all else. Angie finally gets free only to fall into Junior's arms at the first sign of trouble. Where do we go from here, aliens? Different worlds? Garden of Eden? None seem particularly appetizing or pull-off-able with how the series has been running.moreless

    • Joe: Monarch butterflies aren't even in season. They shouldn't be anywhere near Chester's Mill this time of year.
      Norrie: Maybe it's trying to tell us that the dome's just a cocoon, and when it finally goes away, we'll all get to be something new.
      Joe: You realize that most caterpillars are actually eaten before they turn into butterflies?

    • Dodee: Can I say something, Phil?
      Phil: Anything in the whole world.
      Dodee: I hate you.
      Phil: Yeah?
      Dodee: Mm-hmm.
      Phil: I hate you, too.

    • Norrie: How...?
      Joe: W-when we touched, we didn't have the seizures.
      Norrie: More importantly, we didn't die.

    • Phil: I've been listening to her E.T.-phone-home thing, but the military broadcasts dropped off last night so all we've been getting are random numbers and crap.
      Referencing the title character in the 1982 movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. The small wizened alien is stranded on Earth when his people are forced to flee, and takes refuge in a nearby home. The boy living there, Elliott, befriends the alien and helps him to summon his people and return home.
