Watched it.  It's ok, I guess.  Two or three more eps will tell the story.

I haven't watched it yet.  I'm waiting to record a few more and than start watching it.

That's a good plan, toobs.  It's not bad ... and maybe the continuity of having two or three episodes in the can will help you enjoy it more.

There was a waitress who started out naked and put on her uniform. Just watch in reverse. :)

I surprisingly liked it.  I didn't expect to.  Looking forward to more summer entertainment!

Missed recording it tonight, anybody know if there's any repeat showings?

 

VOD, crumby resolution and no FF, but it beats the alternative.

Two eps in, I'm not impressed. The 'dome' is a gimmick that will grow old fast; the writing is bush league and some of the actor's deliveries are reminiscent of a high school play. Even the fire scene, which should have been tense and exciting was amateurish. Finally, the girl being locked in the fallout shelter seems to be an afterthought, but it's not working, at least not for me. Sadly, the best part of the show is the cow, but I don't think it's going very far. :rolleyes:

 

"The Dome" is far too predictable -- far below CBS' usual high standards for drama.

I can't disagree, but I'll go another ep or two at least. 

 

Did anyone think to watch where the smoke went when the house was burning? Nooooooo.

 

In the plane crash (first ep) virtually all pieces of the light plane were burning, even the bits hanging in the tree. Not impossible to ignite the fuel in a crash, of course, but every single fragment??

 

The girl in the fallout shelter could be in any drama, and exist entirely without the dome. Even though it's trite, I do wonder: What will happen with her?

Its not the greatest but I ma not giving up yet.  I do want to see where they go with the mystery of what do the city councilman, priest, and (now dead) police officer all know or do which seems to be tied in to the dome?

I'm curious, too, about the massive stockpiling of propane.  Anyone got a theory??

It's funny to me when people question reality for shows not even realistic.It's a freaking dome, not real, and a work of fiction. Suspend reality and try enjoying the show.

 

As for Nick saying the dome is a gimmick... Well, yeah and it's the premise of the series.

Not questioning the "reality" of the dome at all. The dome can do what it wants. Note I haven't mentioned the bloody hand print on the force field! I'm not even thinking about it at all! Really, completely gone from my consciousness! 

 

i like noting and questioning the verity of physics as depicted in the show, as I do with other shows whether wholly, partially or not at all based in reality. Some people do this well, others don't notice, with all manner of in between takes. 

 

Now, who has a theory on the propane!?

I believe a show can be based on an impossible theory, but it must be true to that theory, and that external happenings are pretty much true to real life. 

 

Perhaps there are exceptions in some very well made films?

Dis you notice that the line that cut the cow in half was almost non existent and the line going thru buildings and the woods was about 2 feet wide ?

Yes, sure did, but it didn't bother me, as that was just a detail in CGI (as well as a sometimes crooked line), unlike the plane crash, where they took pains to add details that aren't realistic.

 

OK?! Now, back to the propane- anyone got a theory? 

 

Or a theory on who/what is causing the force field? 

 

No longer, "how high the moon", but "How high the dome!".....
