    This show turned out to be a mess after a decent first episode. Only reason I'm still watching is Tim Surette's awesome funny reviews. Linda really looks like the Turkish actress Ozgu Namal.
  • No words!

    I'm addicted. I have watched episodes 1-4 and I cant pull my self away from the screen. This is almost as good as Jerico (before the government shut it down and took it off the I'm enthused to see how far this series will go.. I hope it plays out like Burn Notice. Would love to see this show for years to come. Enjoy ya'll!

    TTB - Typical television behavior



    You just locked up a fellow officer after he shoots someone and now he's suddenly choking. You

    1. Call BS

    2. act with TTB.



    Come on, you idiot. If you fall for that then you deserve everything you get.



    Dr Alice Calvert happens to be a diabetic???



    Maybe the CDC should look into why so many movie/tv roles happen to be stricken with diabetes. Jodie Foster's kid has it in Panic Room and now the good doctor? Add her to the list: Con Air, Godfather 3, Steel Magnolias, Chocolat, etc.moreless
  • A killer escapes -- but it's not like he's getting very far.

    7.0
    Well, I reached the end of this episode far more eager for the next one than I felt at the close of Episode 2. Part of this was a certain helpful streamlining of events herein; yes, there are still many stories in this small, small town, and many, many characters, but whether by virtue of acquaintance with them now or merely because they are being handled less frenetically, this felt like a far less messy episode.



    I do have some concerns, however.



    A lot of it has to do with resources. I mean, while it's true that it's only been a couple of days since the dome appeared, seriously, is no one even considering rationing food yet? Or stockpiling goods from the tiny General Store? How are people paying for their meals at Rose's diner do they all have wads of cash laying around? Is Chester's Mill the last holdout against the credit card economy? Don't tell me the bank is able to keep accurate accounts without online resources and with only generators to power their computers? These are questions that all bear swift answers.



    But the most pressing question is, WHEN is Joe going to notice that his sister is missing? Poor Angie! But I guess that's what you get for being such a sexually liberated young womanyou can be held captive by a psychotic stalker who is convinced he loves you for days and NO ONE NOTICES. There's a lesson in that for all of us.



    Maybe next week, someone will actually give a damn that she hasn't shown up for one of her many jobs

    So, the report was following Junior with her car, but he was walking!!

    Why would Barbie go to the forest with Junior's father (armed) if he kicked Junior butt?

    Why would Barbie answer "long history" when the reporter asked him what happened between him and Junior? There is no history, it was only a fight! And... Why he did not say anything to Junior's father about his crazy son?

    Ohh, one other thing... Since Junior's girlfriend grew up in the city with him and work in a very public place, she must be well know in the city, so why no one cares about her and make search party?

    Sorry about my English, but this is too much fail!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Phil: I like this symbiotic thing we got going on, man.
      Julia: Key to a civilized society is a well-informed public.
      Phil: Oh, that and indoor plumbing.
      Julia: Oh, I forgot about indoor plumbing. Fingers crossed that holds out.

    • Joe: Did you invite anyone else?
      Ben: Uh, I might have mentioned the generator to a few people.
      Joe: What about the whole advisories-to-stay-inside thing.
      Ben: Dude, it's the apocalypse. Advisories don't apply.

    • Big Jim: Back at school we had this all-state wideout, a real, uh... a real showboater, you know? He called me "Big Jim," uh, but as a joke, you know? Laughing at me. And one day we, um... we had to scrimmage, and he was taunting me, you know? "Come on, Big Jim. You can't touch me, Big Jim," you know? So... I put the mother of all hits on this punk. I mean, helmet first, went in low, completely shattered his pelvis. Guess what. Big Jim wasn't a joke no more. What does that tell you?
      Barbie: Well, that tells me that being on your team could be hazardous to my health.
      Big Jim: Sometimes an example needs to be made, you know? Command respect. An eye for an eye.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Injoke: Ben mentions The Simpsons Movie and says "they totally saw the dome coming." In real life, Stephen King wrote the original idea for Under the Dome, titled The Cannibals, several years before The Simpsons Movie came out. However, some critics and readers accused him of ripping off the plot of the movie, which features Springfield under a dome.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Big Jim: Just like Butch and Sundance, huh?
      Referencing the 1969 Western movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It is loosely based on the exploits of bank robbers Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and The Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), and popularized the legends of the two historical figures. The movie ends with Butch and Sundance charging out into the guns of the Bolivian Army rather than be taken alive.

    • Norrie: That thing blew up like the Death Star.
      Referencing the mobile space platform first seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977). Commanded by Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader for use by the Emperor, it is approximately 140 kilometers in diameter, holds over a million crew and staff, and contains weaponry capable of blowing a planet to bits in a matter of seconds.
