Under the Dome S02E03: "Force Majeure"

The microclimate inside the Dome is getting to be more of an aggro-climate, if you ask me, and that means nothing but good times for us because it means horrible times for the dopes who live in Chester's Mill. "Force Majeure" was as elegant as its title suggested, definitely worthy of a people and a country that is known for its strength in times of crisis and war. 

It was also an episode that continued Under the Dome's push into legitimate real-world science-fiction serial-procedural dramedy biblical horror, as certain storylines further developed into more than simple tales about a Dome and those trapped therein. Under the Dome is about Dome religion. It's about Dome science. It's about an axe murderer on the loose. It's about a teen love triangle. It's about an insane science teacher who must be stopped before she burns the entire town to the ground. It's about some rando guy who lives in a cabin even though he doesn't appear to serve any point on the show. It's about a girl who hatched from a Dome-egg at the bottom of a lake and has amnesia. It's about a diner with an endless supply of coffee, where the locals can continue to define Chester's Mill as Anytown, USA trapped beneath Anydome, USA despite all hell breaking loose just outside. It's about life, man. And caterpillar infestationsUnder the Dome is about everything, guys. You really can't go wrong. 

But "Force Majeure" was about building conflict, and nothing builds conflict like scalding rain burning townfolk and a liberal scientist and a barber-turned-conversative-religious-quack debating the purpose of the Dome. Let's start with that barber, who is now a main character, apparently, and a staple of Chester's Mill despite never appearing on Under the Dome in the past. For one thing, I think it's cool that a barber still keeps regular hours despite the Dome and the town being in a near-constant state of emergency. Gotta hand it to the small business owners of Chester's Mill, they are inspirational hard-working individuals (or very desperate for cash). 

Did you catch that conversation between Big Jim and Lyle the Jesus Barber? Big Jim asked Lyle to mix him some cologne to seduce Rebecca the Science Teacher, I think? Is Big Jim really making moves on Rebecca? 


And then he said something about not wanting a certain smell because it smelled "effeminate," and all of a sudden Under the Dome showed its true colors and made a statement. Two old white guys in a barber shop basically saying "no homo" to each other? Methinks the Dome has closed off these guys' minds, too.  

Big Jim's plan was to take a census (in the diner of course) and figure out who needed what, I guess? It wasn't really stated why, but it would become very convenient for Rebecca the Science Teacher's master plan, which we'll get to in a minute. In the meantime, there were some major cat fights developing!

But just before the claws could come out, the micro-climate opened up and rained down Dome blood tears! 

Everyone had their own idea about what it was.



All these differences of opinion became important for putting a bat to a dead horse as the series reinforced Season 2's main theme for the 2,538th time: It's science versus religion. The science of a magical Dome holding a town captive versus the religion of a Holy Dome blessing its occupants. Is the Dome out to protect people, or to torture them? Or maybe it just wants to torture us? Is this show our Dome? Are we running out of oxygen? So much metaphysicality I can't stand it!

Lyle, who must bear the burden of town priest because Under the Dome killed that drug-sniffing reverend from Season 1 (that's why you should've kept him around, show!), believed the red rain was one of the ten Biblical Plagues. 


This basically offended Rebecca the (Liberal, God-Hating) Science Teacher to no end. Come to think of it, everything offends Rebecca the Science Teacher to no end. I've only seen her smile once. She's my favorite Under the Dome character by a country mile and a city block and I would love to stroke her hair and pick daisies for her. She is S-M-R-T and business-like and she likes to kill people and caterpillars! 

But Rebecca the Science Teacher's loud, brainy mouth got her in trouble, because she didn't realize that yokels who talk to invisible men in the sky miiiiight be a little temperamental. Lyle came up with a foolproof plan to kidnap Rebecca the Science Teacher as payback for all that fancy science talk. 


Meanwhile, Joe, Norrie, and Dome Girl starred in a Microsoft Surface ad as Joe turned on his tablet and somehow got internet—which was never explained other than Joe saying "there must be a crack in the Dome."


Norrie was trending on Twitter (seriously) and Joe got an email from his dad and Junior got a video message from his mom telling him the she was alive but she never answered any questions, she just told him to talk to Lyle. You know, that guy who didn't even exist 20 minutes ago. Then the internet cut out (probably because Chester's Mill has Comcast). And apparently they were looking at their tablets for a long, long time because the next time we looked at Joe's desktop it was Saturday the 18th!

And then we looked at it once more and time had jumped AGAIN, because it was Saturday the 7th and Joe had uploaded a sweet selfie as his profile pic.

But even time-traveling Microsoft Surface tablets (MSRP $700 but on sale because they blow) could keep Norrie's hatred of Dome Girl at any other level than boiling rage. 

By this time, Lyle had Rebecca the Science Teacher tied up as a hostage so he could shout Bible passages at her until the science was exorcised out of her, but Barbie, Junior, and Julia showed up in time for a showdown!

And so the day was saved because Lyle does not know how to tie a knot that a 76-pound woman with tiny wrists could not escape from.

Norrie still couldn't get over her jealousy of Dome Girl and continued the threats after Dome Girl put her hand on Joe's shoulder, which is obviously the step just before she rips his shirt off and licks his nipple. 

But Dome Girl survived the near-lethal head-poking assault and went to that mysterious locker that Angie died in front of and OPENED IT because she already knew the combination!!! WHOA. Joe went through the school's records and dug up the names of everyone who had ever been assigned to that locker, because all schools keep a decades-long log of locker assignments, and then he had Dome Girl look at the names to see if any of them rang a bell. One from 1988 did, and Joe grabbed the 1988 yearbook and OMG it was a picture of DOME GIRL! Mind exploded slightly irritated!

The acid rain problem was still trickling down but Rebecca the Science Teacher gave a big "fuck you" to everyone who was spouting religious nonsense by using science to eliminate the threat. Like, she sprayed some chemicals into a puddle and then the problem was immediately fixed? 

And then, because she was on a roll, Rebecca the Science Teacher decided she would totally prove to everyone that there was no Dome God by playing Dome God herself. Her new plan was to murder a certain percentage of the population in Chester's Mill so that supplies and rations would last longer and give people more of a chance to survive. Big Jim's census had already provided information about which suckers would need more help because they were sick or weak or whatever. It was genius and sexy! Everyone quickly accepted her plan to kill people, except that prude Julia of course. Even Barbie was like, "Ehh it's a pretty good plan," and those two had a lover's spat that I'm sure we can all identify with: She says, "No let's not murder 100 people," and he says, "But there isn't enough Hamburger Helper for all of them." That happens like every week in my house. 

I'll admit, this episode had a lot of potential with all the acid rain and head-poking, but it felt like it was going in circles and repeating the science versus religion argument that was pretty well laid-out in the first few minutes of the Season 2 premiere. I fear that the rest of the season will be a series of problems that arise for Rebecca the Science Teacher to fix with science while Dome Religion people take the credit. Which means that's probably what will happen, because this show constantly realizes my worst fears, as if Under the Dome is living in the part of my brain where nightmares are created. 



ADDEN-DOMES

– Seriously, isn't Rebecca the Science Teacher the greatest addition to the series since the Dome? 

– Whatever happened to all the ghosts? 

– Would the acid rain have taken care of the caterpillar infestation? Or did Rebecca's plan to use pesticides actually cause the acid rain?

So we have finally gotten, to the crazy religious portion of the series; that network tv, loves to do so much. At least, they did the flip side, with the crazy science people as well.

I love Helix, for being over the top, crazy fun. But UTD isn't even, in the same league. It seems to me, the writers still take the story seriously. I hope, they move towards a Helix style, so i can have fun watching. For now, it's just bad.

I've been a defender of this show and honestly the first 2 episodes weren't that bad but this most recent one had me shaking my head multiple times and facepalming at the stupidity.

Since it's been a week and I forgot to check tv.com after it aired I'll do my best to remember what annoyed me.

1. I hate science teacher lady and her attitude and her ability to stop acid rain by dumping crap in the lake and the potential genocide.

2. Joe's anger about his sister's death. Remember when his sister was kidnapped last season for multiple episodes while Joe was babysitting a butterfly or some stupid shit?

3. I hate Lyle and his stupid face


4. Barbie and Dean Norris are way too bipolar

5. The crack in the dome you referenced above got an "ugh" out of me.

6. How did Lyle get from the restaurant to the middle of the road so fast?

Mostly it's the new characters that annoy the shit out of me. They're in a closed dome and when random people pop up out of nowhere it's gets on my nerves.

Also Im mad that Angie died because gorgeous

Soooo...clearly Melanie is the girl Sam and Lyle (who I'm sorry, I just kept going Dwight Yoakum!!) and probably Pauline (is that Junior's mother's name?) killed in 1988? And somehow that led to the Dome? Is that what anyone else got?

This show moved into my watching on Wednesdays so I don't have to sit through endless commercials about Rush and Satisfaction while watching Graceland.

Ah. Ok, it may come a time when the presence of his sexy-ness Eddie Cahill 8sorrie barbie, I'm not in man named after dolls. And I'm, like, all into dark, tall and handsome) may not be enough for me to keep looking at this thing... Sigh. and given the season premiere, I had such high hopes... well, I guess you can't always have Stephen King writing the scripts for an episode, right?
(Also, 1988 yet again.... who thinks that dome girl is what should have been kept buried, that Sam mentioned to the barber?)

Rebecca the Science Teacher is the worst. And no it isn't because she wants to kill people, or because she is a pyromaniac, or because she took a whole season to come out of her house, or because she throws acid rain around, or because any of the other dumb things she does. Rebecca the Science Teacher is the worst because this show has already proven to the audience that she is wrong. Sure she was able to stop a caterpillar infestation with her plan B, but how did the caterpillars get in the dome? Science that please. Also I didn't realize that a pond of water can effect a town sized ecosystem that heavily. Have them pouring clean water/chemicals? into the lake for a longer period before the rain could stop or even be effected. Apart from her selective sciencing she also has a split personality. If she was actually insane that is some valid character development, but I think it is just the writers just thinly outlining a confrontational character.

To be fair though Under The Dome scales it's characters on a Terrible-Tolerable level. Most everyone hovers around the terrible part with one or two tolerable characters mixed in.

Basically R.I.P. Britt Robertson...

I didn't get a chance to read the review of the premier but this review was hilarious. Only reason I watch the show,... and to see linda die, cause that made me laugh for hours and hours and hours.

I hope skelator dies next. he's definitely the most annoying character... other than Julia.

Love the science teacher lady. She's the best!

Julia "Alf" Shumway Trivia
It has been 3 weeks since her husband was murdered by Barbie, the murderer of her husband moved in to their house and replaced the dead meat in the bedroom... clearly enough time has passed to yell "I thought I know you!" when Barbie agreed to murder weak people in order to survive...
Think Julia, Think... what exactly made her think that murder is out of the question??? Haha this show is so extremly absurd without these hilarious reviews i couldn't watch it.
Next week i wanna see a real catfight between Franken-Teenie and Dom Girl.

Who else was rooting for Norrie and Lakegirl to start making out when Norrie was suggestively poking her forehead ? Now that would make a good story point !

I think they fired Britt Robintson because they did't want to much hottness on the show once they added Lakegirl ? I miss Britt !!

Okay, I know the show is science fiction but, where are everyones pets ? Where is all the trash going, doubt they have a landfill in the town ? I'm also thinking the sewage lines don't go passed the dome, so that place has to be stinkin' to high heaven ! The writers should at least be conveying that the dome stinks....oh wait, they have.

Wanting to watch this show every week reminds me of the ex crazy girlfriend; you want to forget about her, but when she shows up at 10pm, you let her in !

Did anyone check out the site that Jr. went to? If you do you can see the rest of the video from his mom. She tells him she's having visions and don't trust Big Jim (duh!)

The conflict between Barbie and Julia is so forced and ridiculous. Even more ridiculous than their "true wuv". That Barbie would in any way side with Big Jim is laughable.

Shouldn't have Sheriff DJ Phil been looking for Lyle and Rebecca? Or is he still getting up to speed on the whole Sheriff thing by watching Law & Order, CSI and Criminal Minds reruns.

Why are they bringing injured people to the diner instead of the clinic? What happened to all the nurses that worked at the clinic?

Is Rebecca really an unfeeling robot? (Jury is still out)

Is Norrie the worst ever? (Absolutely)

Where are the rest of the teens in this town?

Is the locker a portal to outside the dome? (of course it is)

Watching Under the Dome because I am a King fan and a Sci-Fi fan.
Show is watchable but not representative of King or of good Sci-Fi.
I look at it as Summer filler. On par with most of the other Sci-Fi on Network or 'free' cable such as Falling Skies, The Last Ship, The 100, and even Defiance. Ordinary and watchable...but would not get upset if cancelled.
No Fringe, Battlestar Galactica, Lost or other excellent sci-fi based shows...at least available on my TV.
Will check out Extant and other upcoming shows. Hope springs eternal.

I believe so, except the "71" was inverted. I'm going to add that anyone who has had a school locker in their day knows you have to pass the second number when turning the lock back to the right for the last number. I know I'm being picky but come on, at least put "some realism" in it.

I do feel the cast is more balanced now that Britt Robertson's agent got her of this awfull show. At least that's what I believe has happend, This shit can't be good for your career.

So Rebecca, while coming up with the dumbest (and inexplicably successful} plans in creation to deal with an insanely strong magnetic field, a swarm of caterpillars and acid rain, has also managed to inventory the town's food supply and agricultural capacity, has modelled consumption, and decided that right now, two weeks into domeage, a chunk of the population has to be culled? Does she never sleep?

And couldn't they ramp up farming to cover the shortfall, they already have a great greenhouse in place? I can't believe she's gone through the forests and

It's fun watching Norrie be all "mean face" to Dome Girl ("Melanie"), when on the internets the actors seem to be besties (pj party, song duet, dome watch parties).

Anyway, I look forward to future episodes. At some point the show should remember the dome actually did communicate in s1 and has a plan.

You know, the years have been a lot kinder to Big Jim's brother-in-law (I never can retain that guy's name) than to Lyle. Dwight Yoakam is 57 and looks it. Pauline was 16 or 17 in that photo (I don't care enough to check her exact date of birth from when Junior entered it to watch the video), so if Lyle is the same age, that makes him 42 or 43. Ouch.

To be fair to Rebecca, her plan wouldn't be necessary if Big Jim didn't have the diner running like it's business as usual.

OK, so Joe got an email from his dad and Junior got one from his mum, but did anyone notice their emails were identical besides those ones?

So Lyle and Big Jim's brother-in-law killed the mystery girl in 1988, right? The only problem with that theory is that it would flow logically from their conversation.

This is going to be my playlist while I absorb the vastness of this episode. I was going to include the Creedence one, but then Lyle started singing it five minutes after I thought of it, and seriously, fuck him and anything he touches.

Previous two reviews were better imo. Slipping a little bit Tim (they're still far better than the show so I'll let it pass).

So, Barbie kills Julia's husband, they've been together about 17 days and her outburst is "I thought I knew you". -_-

Dome girl and Rebecca have taken Linda's place as most annoying character. Dome girl is around for 5 minutes, doesn't know her own name and is hitting on Joe when his sister got killed like 2 days ago? Wish she drowned. And Rebecca? Nice that they kill off one Big Jim worshipper in Linda and immediately introduce another.

Best moment in the episode was Joe reading the email, promptly ruined by dome girl putting her hand on him and calling him "sweetie". Couldn't she become a caterpillar and be incinerated by Rebecca (who then gets killed by the axe-murderer that wasn't even mentioned this week).

Pornhub eh, Tim?

On the other hand, we got excited over an empty locker (for a couple of ep), which was a wifi spot before it opened and mysteriously wasnt after the Dome girl opened it.

Random Q: doesn't any1 from class of 1988 still lives in Chester Mill? Why doesn't any1 recognize Dome girl?

I really hate that science teacher. There was no sense of humanity in her. Compared to Julia, shes terrible. I guess ill take crazy over lack of humanity anytime.

Anyways, whos excited bout the tree shaking?

Pinata full of domises and Big Jim with a big swinging ball shouting " Now I got you now survive this " with Rebecca at the helm . Love the review Tim very apt Science versus religion why not, does mean see as the Dome is on the Period does it get moody and generally pissed off.

I am not visiting Lyle Barber shop anytime soon don't fancy the religious brainwashing while I am having my hair cut. Are the writers from the Following they dealt with Religion in a cultish way. Does this mean if the dome spout people from the past will Linda , Lesbian mom and all the other chester mill people come back . It will chuck somebody from the future OHHH, or perhaps generator's , coffee, LSD , Speed opps sorry that the writers stash . They need to kill of Junior he's getting on my nerves daddy issues , angie issues , crappy haircut issues. Can't seem to find the promo for the next episode any chance somebody can put a link on here .

Random thoughts here:

Now that Officer Linda is dead, Julia is probably the dumbest person around (the dome told you what?!), still, she has a point when she's arguing with Barbie at the beginning of the episode. Barbie, man, you've been living at Julia's for, like, 2 weeks in dome's time, and you feel comfortable enough to tell her who she can or can't invite to "our home"? Too much macho?

My favourite characters now are Rebecca the Sociopath Science Teacher (lovely apologia of human sacrifice, by the way), DJ Sheriff aka. the background guy, and Egg Girl. Egg Girl is the best actress ever: after we had guessed, way before seeing Joe's face, that she was the one on the yearbook picture, and after the camera lingered on the picture for an eternity, she still felt the need to make a dramatic pause between "It's" and "me". Stanislavski, everybody!

Also, I hope this week's teenage triangle drama is the cue for a triumphant Ben comeback. I love Ben, I spent half of the first season really hoping he was Officer Linda's long lost son...

Your stupid plan of who was worth keeping and who was worth sacrificing has "DOMED" us all for eternity in here!!!!" :D

"Dome period"

Seriously?

"Or maybe it just wants to torture us? Is this show our Dome? Are we running out of oxygen? So much metaphysicality I can't stand it!"

Okay, now we're actually getting some depth. Maybe it's like the marble galaxy at the end of Men in Black only instead of a marble, it's a dome and instead of planets, it's us shmucks who continue to watch this debocle.

"And apparently they were looking at their tablets for a long, long time because the next time we looked at Joe's desktop it was Saturday the 18th! And then we looked at it once more and time had jumped AGAIN, because it was Saturday the 7th and Joe had uploaded a sweet selfie as his profile pic."

Is the the definitive proof needed to show that the producers really aren't even trying any more?

Questions of the week...

1, Jim's brother in law and crazy Lyle...one comes in from out of the acid blood rain carrying a woman and the other has a bowl of acid blood rain thrown in his face, yet neither of them are wet?

2, How in the hell did Lyle outrace Big Jim and crazy pants teacher to stand on the middle of the road he clearly knew they'd be travelling on?

3. And just for fun, somebody please explain to me Rebecca's scientific method of making rain stop by spraying chemicals into the lake?
