Kept you on the edge of your seat? Wow, no way. There were chapters after chapter where NOTHING happened. How is that keeping you on the edge of your seat? There is no way you were on the edge of your seat the whole time you read that book. Yeah, it is a fantastic book, slow in the middle and VERY VERY weak ending but come on, it was not that much of a thriller for the entire read.
The show is so silly and over the top I am almost ashamed of myself for continuing to watch. But, what the hell, it's summer and continuing to watch the show gives me an excuse to come back here every week and bad mouth it some more.
Good catch by those of you who recognized King. I didn't realize it was him at first because of the cap he was wearing and the fact that most of his face was in shadow because he was backlighted by the cafe's windows.
My wife told me she won't be back to The Dome this season... she'd rather watch Ancient Aliens, Unsealed Alien Files, Alien xxx whatever xxx. I pretty much told her my reason for still watching is what you stated above....
"I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure...."
He doesn't seem in any way surprised or perturbed by the existence of the dome. You'd think he might want to go talk to someone to ask, "Hey, what's up with this weird dome thing?" But nope, it's all perfectly normal to him.
Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Also, we don't know if there is some other hand that would also work, just the four that were discovered so far.
My very humble setup:
|Man Cave:||Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).|
|Bedroom:||LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Starter Package), DVD/VHS player.|
"Is Angie really dead?
Britt Robertson: Angie is actually dead. She's for sure dead after the first episode, but it's a Stephen King show, so whatever that means to the audience. It's very vague what dying is and where the season goes, so who knows? I might go back to Under the Dome one of these days. She's dead, but dead for now."
There's a dozen shows I'd love to come in for an episode and clean house.
You're also talking about people in a small town not seeing each other under normal circumstances. Yes, there are long periods of time that go by and people in a small town might not interact.
But... in this particular small town... the power and phones went out... when that happens and you have no TV and you hear on the radio that "a dome has dropped over the town" you are going to have to poke your head out to see what is going on.
A lot of the town was having water and food problems in those first 2 weeks... Remember the plot where water was scarce except for that one guy controlling the reservoir? Lack of water would have brought everyone out scrambling for water... and a lot of people were looking for other supplies.
It just isn't realistic to have more and more important new people pop up the longer the show goes on... a few people here and there are fine... and they can mask some of it by having them be "faces in the crowd" that technically were there the whole time but they just weren't focusing the story on them. But they still have to be careful bringing people out of the woodwork on a regular basis.
Hands no longer needed, as there is no mini-dome.

Come to think of it, the only show that was religion themed that I truly enjoyed was Reaper, but it was more comedy than anything. And the Ray Wise Devil character was pure gold.
