    The mini-dome is certainly a sphere.

    Then they sure misnamed the program! I can't imagine it being a sphere, but then again, other things are a part of the show I can't quite swallow. But I'm still watchin'— you betcha! </Fargo>. :)

    It may be a sphere, but that does not seem to be the case, at least for the mini-dome, which now that it is uprooted and moved to the barn, seems to be a dome sitting on top of a chunk of dirt. I'll have to look closer next week to confirm that.

    I'm actually starting to like Jr., and I think he might be a pretty good actor. Certainly there is no excuse for some of that behavior, but he is starting to look sympathetic, which is a lot more two-dimensional than most of the folks in this yarn seem to appear. Every other character seems to have but one layer.

    Just my opinion, but I don't believe that the dome is a sphere.

    I wish I still had the episode on the DVR to help confirm that ... the dirt portion was also a dome shape. It looked like a dark bowl with a clear bowl set on top of it ... the dirt bottom bowl level with the bottom bowl.

    We know the big dome extends deep under the earth ... deep enough that the tunnels do not go under it. The big dome could be a glass dome with vertical sides under the ground level ... but for how far down? If it has vertical sides forever it would come out the other side of the planet. If there was a limit on how deep the dome goes then one could go under it.

    The mini-dome sphere gives a clue of what the large dome could do. It appears to be very close to vertical at the surface of the earth ... just like the big dome. I'm not sure the height of the dome is the radius of the dome ... but on the mini-dome it seems close.

    The show isn't called in the sphere. So it has to be a dome. Except it isn't. Because a dome is only 180 degrees. And we know the "dome" goes way past 180 degrees and since it's near vertical at the surface, it has to begin curving inward below the surface. So one thing we know: the show is mis-titled. Ain't no dome.

    So Jr. put her in the shelter just to protect her from the dome influence? That's pretty shaky logic. Sounds like the writers thought that up after the fact.

    With all the other scientific inconsistencies we have to overlook in this one the name of the show is one of the least on my list.

    But it wouldn't be "Under The Sphere", it would be "Inside The Sphere" :)

    What indicates to you that it "has to be curving inward below the surface"?

    Don't believe much of what Jr. says, if anything!

    Were you satisfied with the movie versions of Bridge on the River Kwai or The Planet of the Apes? If you happened to read the books, you might change your mind about that statement I highlighted. The same guy, Pierre Boulle, wrote both of them and they were terrible books. I think they were translated from French, that might explain why the English versions were so bad.

    I've been trying apps on my Galaxy 3 that record all conversations. They play back...when they work, which they don't seem to. I keep trying them tho.

    There used to be a dividing line between science fiction and science fantasy, but that line has become terribly blurred and it seems as if anything goes now.
