    Show has lost it's creditability with me after viewing the latest episode. No one recovers from meningitis as quickly as those people did.

    Interesting. I question many other aspects of many productions, but illnesses and the treatment of them, including recovery time, aren't among them.

    To be clear, I am not saying anyone is right or wrong on what hits them; just interesting to me that there are wide differences.

    This story line could get really old really quick.
    I will keep watching it just to view the good looking red head for now.

    And don't forget: Hank has to get back to his job in the DEA so he can catch his brother in law break bad.

    Yes, I am down to watching it for the large gaps in credibility and the lovely ladies. When I started I was hoping for coastal scenes of a quaint Maine fishing village, but noooooo, not even a slab of granite.

    I'm talking from experience. I had viral meningitis in 1984. Having a severe case of influenza would be a drastic improvement compared to having meningitis and we all know how long it takes to recover from the flu.

    Aha! That then would be something you would be acutely aware of then. I guess I am lucky in that regard; now pretty much aching joints and muscle (what's left!) due to aging.

    Since it's Science Fiction .. Perhaps the Dome has super healing power .. remember, we're not talking about reality here.

    My big question is what frequencies can penetrate the 'wall'? Will a wireless CCK work? Video bridge? Cell phone? TV— OTA and/or Satellite? AM or FM? CB radio? Microwaves? UV?

    Some of these may have been answered, but I haven't been paying close attention.

    Agree. Does anybody remembers if the people who got sick had touch the Dome or not.

    the people who got sick and where hospitalized did not touch the dome. They all got sick from being in an enclosed space.

    They may have had their resistance lowered by lousy writing.......

    I've been watching Under the Dome and each episode so far feels like the end. It's just okay.

    Its just alright.

    You can't compare it with the book.

    Books are always better because most of what we visualize comes from our own minds.

    People see the dome as a trap, a zoo, a prison. But as we just saw from the missile detonation, it's also a shield, a protector, a sanctuary. We just got a clue that China is very nervous about the US. This may be presaging a world war leaving these folks safe and sound, the last of humanity.

    I'm not one to pick on inaccuracies. But I am curious:

    Does the US REALLY have non-nuclear weapons that are that destructive?

    I know we have some pretty serious weaponry, but a non-nuke that can level parts of a town and the natural terrain around it?
