Of course they like the moon... because it is close to us. (someone will get that reference)

Meanwhile... the blank stares and semi-brainwashing will explain all the bad acting going forward, so good job there. The alien plot is starting to sound a bit like Plan 9 from Outer Space, though. Maybe this is actually Plan 10?

Me do not have signature.

Fellow Domers, I think I'm going to finally and officially bail. Missed getting the opener recorded, my lameass cable company doesn't offer CBS shows On Demand (and they'd be in stretched SD even if they did) and I take that as a sign from the Dome that I should probably check out. I think I can still get my weekly fix of Dome-fun by reading Tim Surette's side-splittingly funny synopsis's and continuing to follow the thread.

I thank you for your sacrifice.

Last season also had sizable drops as well, so I'm not surprised.

And still number one in it's time slot by a wide margin. Only a couple of shows the entire night did better. So I think it's pretty much a TV wasteland right now. Especially before the holiday.

I'm more confused by this week's episode than last week.

Didn't Christine order Melanie to kill Julia? Then when she obeyed, Christine killed her to save Julia?

Then Christine ordered Eva to find the camera, and Eva said she didn't even know where to start looking? But of course it was right where they found the egg and Eva went straight to it? But didn't know how to erase the video or destroy it? So BJ steals it, learns that they're controlled by the egg, but doesn't bother to show Julia or anyone else? But if the egg was destroyed, why are they still under its influence?

If I understand correctly, the egg landed 25 years ago, was touched by Melanie, but she died before the egg could do it's mojo on her and bring down the dome. Then the egg sat for 25 years, only affecting Mrs. BJ's dreams.

Then 3 weeks ago Christine and Eva found it and this time its contact with Christine was enough to activate the dome. So they left the egg where they found it (?) along with the camera and hid out in the catacombs while the egg brought back Melanie to do its legwork. After a day or two the kids found the egg but not the camera, and the first 2 seasons ensued.

Is that about it or did I miss something?

It makes no sense at all, there isn't even any consistency within 1-2 episodes. All I know was that it was a terrible fight scene and Christine is supposed to be evil for some reason. .

I love how the Dome ignores all rules of sanity, physics, and science in general, yet the one thing this show will not do is violate the taboos of showing animals or children die on screen. Big Jim has killed how many people now, yet he won't just shoot that stupid dog? Oops, silly me! I forgot that the Dome doesn't want him to shoot the dog. I knew there had to be a reason.

The dog is watching him to make sure he leaves?

I wouldn't be surprised if that were true. That the Dome is controlling the dog to keep an eye on Big Jim.

Oh I get you - I didn't really mean for "hide out" to be taken literally, just that they were on site but out of view until now...

She has not aged very well. She will only be 57 this year.

I have figured it out finally. Each week they bring in a new set of writers without telling them what has transpired in the previous episodes. They just turn them loose and write the current episode.

I think Stephen King was part of that policy, which explains the season 2 premiere.

Same here- I really tried- but when you can't sit through a 42min episode without FF'ing then what's the point?
I've watched the first season of Daredevil, just two episodes of Mr. Robot, and a few episodes of Dark Matter... I've enjoyed all more than full seasons of Under the Dumb already- so why wast time on this mindless soap opera.

Deleted from Sickbeard, deleted from NAS!

Have fun all....

Many people have already lost interest/dropped it already and so far, there doesn't seem to be any end in sight. The same thing usually happens in hate watch shows, most people usually lose interest in the end.

OK, I don't know what solar system you are residing in, but a full moon appears every 28 days (give or take).
