    JR goes on a drug induced tear through town. A girl with pink star tattoos gets run over.

    Marshmallows. No, wait, the stars are orange -- it's the hearts that are pink.

    That's silly. There are many examples of domes resting on top of another non-domed structure. Think capitol buildings and sports stadiums.

    Of all the Dome theories that I thought might be postulated .. whether it's a dome or sphere or a box .. well, that wasn't one of the ones I thought of.

    What is underground and how far it goes just helps understand the environment and escape routes.

    Love it, hate it, watch it, don't watch it, pick apart the continuity and the logic if you like. I think the number of views and posts indicates that the show has caught our fancy. That can hardly be in dispute. Ratings are still strong, too.

    The mini-dome appears to be a sphere. No reason it would not be a direct analog of the big dome. Thus given a vertical surface at ground level, the walls must curve under you below that level. If it was, say, an inverted test-tube shape with straight walls continuing straight down, the mini-dome would look like an old stock ticker glass...

    The script has been pretty fuzzy about this: Did Jr. actually kidnap Angie underground to protect her from the dome effects, or not? Or was this about some psychic connection he felt they had to have relative to the dome? The script makes some veiled allusions to both but it's been left very confusing. And it's important because it affects whether Jr. is an evil psycho or a surprise good guy. Well, as good as a twisto like him can be.

    well clearly the pink stars are a map to something ... It's just figuring out what that something is that's unknown. :)

    I admit the show started out kind of clunky and hackneyed, but it's started to gain a bit of richness and suspense to it in the past few weeks.

    I enjoyed every separate story in Monday's (8/26) episode, and I was interested to see where each one was going.

    Why "must" the walls curve underground? Only if the mini is in fact a miniature of the big one....

    Now we are getting somewhere. Hopefully with this weeks developments they can kick this show into high gear.

    The deal where the kids are magically surrounded by a 3D map of the galaxy is a bit obvious. We are here, you are there. Welcome to the Universe, humans. That's the ultimate hackneyed sci-fi 101 Writing for Dummies.
