There's only 12 pigs for the whole Dome?

Are Julia and the new guy making a citizens arrest? He reminds me of Phil on Modern Family for some reason.

Thank god the meteor had moved up to just below the surface, who wants to watch Barbie dig.

I thought it was 12 pigs in that one farm that the science teacher was using for developing the virus, and there were a few other farms that also had livestock.

It was either move the meteor up, or have a digging montage. (MythBusters often has time-lapse or a montage to show what happened without boring the viewers.)

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.

1. there are 12 LESS pigs in The Dome
2. I'm pretty sure the culprits buried that meteorite to hide the death of Drownie, ehem, Melanie.. was it my TV or the soil was pistachio green?

Where did Barbie get that shovel? I don't think they walked out there with one...

Oh, silly me. I'm sure the Dome provided it, because it's supposed to care for them!

The beginning of the episode was kind of eerie for me, though. When Science Lady walked in on Jim in his office, I had a wave of deja vu that Linda was walking in to tell him that she had just let another prisoner escape, or something. At least Junior puts handcuffs on the people he springs from jail... for a while.

Who would have guessed -- the creepy guy who lives in the woods killed Angie. What a shocker!

Even skipping past them it's hard not to notice the excessive amount of time devoted to commercials in this show, instead of the normal 5-6 button presses it's like 8, 9 or more.

The size of advertising promos stations are putting over their shows is ridiculous. During this episode there was a storm warning scroll. The ad promo (for some upcoming show) was placed on top of that. I swear, at least 1/3 of the screen was covered.

I swear, every year the lower-third promos increase in size by another 10-15 pixels. In five more years, it's gonna be half the screen.

What kills me is when the lower-third promos are very bright and animated, and the show underneath it is dark and static. Why, it's as if the networks are desperately trying to get us to watch more crap! The show producers really detest these built-in promos.

As far as I know, all American network dramatic scripted shows are still about 42-43 minutes long. They have some pretty lame act breaks in Under the Dome, and that doesn't help the commercial breaks go any faster.

It must have been one of those magic invisible shovels that only become visible when it's needed.

There were 12 dead pigs now on ONE farm. They went to 7 farms.

I'm going to make a guess based on the preview for next weeks episode:

Spoiler!



So if I remember, the original four "hands" were two males and two females, right? And two of them were brother and sister.

The new "hands" are also two males and two females, with a brother and sister. It that right?

New girl is an original hand, who was killed, and one of the new hands, also female, is killed. Are we going to see her come back to life?

But it doesn't make sense that Flack and Dwight do not recognize the girl who's death they covered up.

You're asking a lot there.. maybe they both repressed the memory of seeing her die

It's just like the "magic shovel "that suddenly appears out of nowhere when Barbie needs to dig out the meteorite.

Like how on the cheesy Syfy Movies they explain when something happens that's 180 degrees against the previous rules they used for the whole movie in one phrase "well... things change!" on this show anything can be explained by simply saying "the dome wanted xxx to happen".

This show is becoming sillier by the episode.... I'm waiting for "the great vegetable rebellion" episode...

I thought the same thing but I didn't want to go back in the recording to confirm. Since Under the Dome is a colossal waste of time I try get through it as quickly as possible.

Just stop watching it like I did. I just read the comments and TV.com's articles. They're entertaining enough.

Who says they don't recognise her? It would be pretty awkward to say, "Oh hi, I see killing you didn't really stick, after all." They're probably faking ignorance, since as long as she has no memory, they're safe. Now that she remembers what they did, they're not so safe anymore.

Exactly, Flack is certainly not going to acknowledge that he knows her, and has Dwight even seen her yet?

Just to see what CBS is doing with Extant, I captured and edited it. Tonight's episode was 43:52 in length, or about 4.5 minutes longer than Under the Dome. Yep, just goes to prove that CBS are A-holes.

Dwight hasn't even seen her yet and when Flack saw her his reaction was one that showed he obviously knew way more then what he was saying. This was repeated again when they talked to him again about her.

Well if the episode is only 39 minutes long, what else are they supposed to do?

I watched Extant last night. Without you mentioning it, I would have never known that it was longer than Under the Dome.

Not trying to take you to task here, but how does Extant being 4.5 minutes longer than Dome prove CBS are AH .. ??

The better question is what would UTD have given us with those 4.5 extra minutes? ...and do we really want it anyway?

Those 4.5 minutes were Barbie going back to the house to get a shovel, and then returning.... Cut!

The 39 minutes were due to CBS' commitment to reduce pollution.
