    Hey, how did they go to the dome last night and see nice green and no destruction outside the dome?? The scene where the kids lost their RF interference by touching the dome together. There was ZERO destruction outside the dome! Major continuity blunder or what?

    A different side of the dome. The missile hit one side.

    Despite all its flaws, the final ratings for Monday 10:00pm were:

    CBS - "Under the Dome" 11.41 million viewers including a 2.8 rating for 18-49
    ABC - "Mistresses" 3.96 million viewers including a 1.2 rating for 18-49
    NBC - "Siberia" 1.93 million viewers including a 0.7 rating for 18-49

    The viewers have spoken and unfortunately I have to admit "Under the Dome" is the only one of those shows I'm recording and we're watching it.

    I loved the UK version of "Mistresses" and I think the ABC version stinks. And "Siberia", it's NoBody Cares. I think the premise had promise. Perhaps it's doing ok in Russia and the Ukraine, the only other countries it has distribution.

    How far have we fallen? I am also watching.

    Funny thing to night- I FF through a bunch of commercials, and see headlines about a big propane explosion, put out as if it were a TV broadcast about events in the Dome. Except it's about the Florida event, and is real.

    Scary thing is, Big Jim was also hoarding the propane in FLA...

    BTW, what was the point of the missile/bomb? Why were they willing to potentially kill everybody in town? For what?

    The dome is affecting the world outside (hence the butterflies being thrown off course and being attracted to it). The outsiders needed to get rid of it at any cost - even if it meant killing those inside.

    The rest of the entire world has run out of propane and there's that big stash inside The Dome.....

    I had heard that line about the magnetic field but that hardly seems enough justification to wipe out a whole town! Pretty weak writing.

    Of course they also talked about how China almost declared war because they thought the USA had developed a missile shield so could be they're trying to show the world that they aren't responsible for it and want it gone too as a way of defusing international tensions.

    The amount of wind in the dome is a stretch but what bothers me more is the river inside of a completely closed environment. Should have flooded the town or at least a very large area. My daughter and I may watch one more episode but she was ready to throw in the towel after the last one did nothing to improve the plot. Everyone suddenly deciding to raid the stores was just silly. That would have happened in the first hour when everyone realized they were not getting out.

    But the gun happy law enforcement officers and Hank, the FBI man from Breaking Bad, would be a big deterrent to early raids. :)

    Yes, there are more holes in this than a fine Swiss cheese, but I am sticking with it for now.

    OMG! It is!?!
    I thought it was CNN.


    :hurah:

    In any event, even fiction ought to have some internal integrity...
