That could explain the Dome logic! At least it isn't as crazy as Alice in Wonderland!

Still makes more sense than this series, at least it was supposed to be nonsensical.

I wonder sometimes if Dean Norris regrets taking the Big Jim role .. the guy comes off of what many consider one of the best shows ever made and ends up "Under the Dome" playing Clown Town Big Bad .. but, then again, it's a paycheck ..

There should be a crossover with BB to spice up the ratings.

'Under the Dome' on CBS HD

All those kids and their teenage angst should jump into the hole and end up in the center of the Earth. Anybody with half a brain knows that the Altantis descendants live there and that they are the source of UFOs not space aliens. The UFOs come to the surface to observe us from time to time and to kidnap our best women for their mating rituals. They exit and enter through a huge hole at the South Pole. Not sure what global warming will do about that.

The Aliens are CAUSING climate change so when they exit the hole for good, the Earths atmosphere will match their Home World .. WIKI says so / it must be true ..

What they don't know is that after they go through the tunnel behind the red door, their minds will get transplanted into Big Jim's body for a while, and after the possession wears off, they'll get dumped next to the New Jersey Turnpike. It's Season 3: Being Jim Carsellovich! Pretty soon all the army guys will be lining up to take their turn at running Chester's Mill.

I really, really wanted that "list of people who hate Big Jim" thing to become a running gag for the episode.

Rebecca: So Jim, can you think of anyone who might not like you?
Junior: We could be here for a while.
Jim: Well, there's the guy whose pickup truck I blew up...

-next Julia/Joe scene-

Jim: ...and there's the DJ who I made sheriff after killing his partner...

-next Barbie scene-

Jim: ...and there're all those people I tried to kill with swine flu...

-next Sam/Pauline scene-

Jim: ...and there're probably some people who're still sore about me trying to blow up all the food...

-back to Julia/Joe-

Lethal Weapon(or was it 2) was on the other day. It was funny seeing Big Jim in there when he was much younger and not bald yet. He was one of the detectives that worked with the Mel Gibson character.

Chester Mills doesn't seem much interested in drugs, or anything else for that matter, except for coffee.

Nobody smokes, nobody drinks, nobody smokes pot, does coke etc. And only two people are having sex.

There was some drinking and rabble-rousing in the first season. That dumb storyline with Natalie Zea and the underground fight club. That all got forgotten when they killed off Zea's character.

Speaking of drugs, is it just me or did the kid who plays Joe look super-gaunt in the last episode, like he's been hitting the meth?

Didn't really notice that but Big Jim looks like he has dropped a few pounds .. and he's definitely thinner than Hank was on BB ..

Joe looks unhealthy because his goofy girlfriend is part alien and sucking his life force.
