    Now that we have some specific info of what the dome is for I too am more interested in what will happen outside of it.

    Well, that's it for me. Can't put my finger on it but it's both weird and has become boring at the same time. It's gone from dome to dumb.

    Canceled my ST, just don't care any more.

    Carry on...

    I've seen it ... and they do a fair job of explaining things. They left a cliffhanger ... which is not a bad thing for a renewed show. It is better than a cliffhanger on a canceled series. :)

    Aha, like I said back on page one or so...to protect them! Leaving us with 2 possibilities: asteroid hit or nuke war. Nukes are passe. Gotta be asteroid. Then Chester's Mill becomes Eden.

    Or an alien invasion (other than the aliens who are protecting Chester's Mill). Tune in next year and maybe find out. :)

    O yeah, that's a good one too! And is Monarch Julia carrying a cosmic love child bun in the oven? Could Jr. possibly be more of a gullible dipstick??

    When does it come back, next Summer?

    Yes. 13 more episodes next summer.

    Food for thought:
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/under-domes-brian-k-vaughan-630158

    "The Hollywood Reporter turned to executive producer Brian K. Vaughan to respond to burning questions about the season, the creative direction of the series and his vision for season two."

    "Next season is exciting for us because it's a season where everybody knows they're not getting out and they're clearly trapped -- and this is the new normal. We'll get to go to some places that the book never got to go to."

    "Otherworldly beings behind the dome in the book were there for very malicious reasons; they'd put this dome down to toy with the people of Chester's Mill. We now know that the people behind our dome have a very different reason: Their dome is there to keep us safe. That will be a major focus of next season, and we know Julia has the power to bring the dome down. Similarly, Big Jim might have the power to bring down the dome as well but he wants it to remain for very different reasons. Those are the two big answers we're left with, and we will see what big answers come next season."

    Good for you. I never understood others who keep watching just to complain about it.

    My wife and I, OTOH, found it to be increasingly "must-see" viewing. I'm glad we had a show to watch together after the Falling Skies season ended and before a couple of our faves started in the fall.

    So it's a classic Good Vs. Evil battle shaping up with Julia as the angel representing "the light" and Big Jim as the Devil representing the forces of darkness.

    Best line ever in the show, from Barbie: "Worse. You're a politician."

    I figured a lot of people would like that line, but I thought it was pretty forced. And too easy.

    I enjoyed seeing Norrie smile for the first time when the butterfly started flying around. She actually looked kind of cute for a change when she wasn't all mopey (although I know she had her reasons not to smile so much before).

    That reminds me I loved the "Carry On"Movies

    I watch Haven, That is enough Stephen King for me.

    I may never return next season.

    Lame show. It's sad that they screw up the story from the book.

    They needed something less finite for the TV show.

    I'd complain about this show except my mantra from June through August is "it's summer fare."

    It is a great show, I never read the book so I do not know what the differences are. I know That I hated The Stand mini series because it paled in comparison to the book. I have been reading this thread since the beginning and I love all the comments about how this is not real or that could never happen. It reminds me of that show about the Submarine starring Andre Brauer. People were saying a sub can not dive at that angle or some other nonsense and that too made me laugh. IT IS MAKE BELIEVE PEOPLE IT IS NOT REAL so the writers can do pretty much what ever they want. All those nit pickers out there I feel sorry for ya because you can never really truly enjoy anything with out saying "that is not real" or "that would never happen in real life"

    Now I just wonder how Barbie is gonna escape the gallows, will Junior defy Big Jim or will pink star fairies come and carry Barbie away.....
