  • An excellent start that traps you under the dome

    The pilot was pure awesomeness!



    Acting was good, the adaptation of the dome very good, the visual effects spectacular! It tied me up and couldn't miss a second!



    It surely seeds the ground for dirty stories about the town's residents, non-supernatural related, but as long as they make sense they will be fine subplots.



    The only drawback was the cow. Since when cows are pieces of meat without internal organs?moreless
  • Major Flaws in the Science...

    Following on from Bearcatjb (June 26th) who made some salient points as to the Dome's properties.

    We learn that the Dome is semi-permeable to air and water, but even the Army cannot bust it's way through. It would seem to be a sphere rather than a Dome, half above ground , half below, bearing out Bearcatjb's musings.

    But explain this. In the Pilot ,the aircraft crashes into the Dome yet the debris FALLS INSIDE ! Surely the wreckage should have slid down the outside of the dome????

    . I have not read the book and only the comments from the pilot airing. Would like to know if this is a Stephen King mistake or a TV story mangle. Still, enjoying the show but this flaw in the fidelity of the dome is a glaring mistake and makes me wonder what other EPIC FAILS await.

    Cheers all.moreless

    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!
