And that pisses me off about Angie...just knee the sonofabitch in the nuts...and when he's down on the floor crying his eyes out....stab the bastard.

I've read the book so I know that there IS a reason that Junior is acting so strangely.  I don't want to give spoilers but the writing for his character isn't just lazy or unthought out as the review implies.

 That Jr/Angie storyline is sucking balls, hopefully its over now that Big Jim found her.  I'm guessing he won't let her out and will kill her or will have Jr kill her so the secret of Jr being a nutcase is safe.  

Now that Jr is a cop Big Jim will run the police force too.

 I agree about the hospital stuff, I thought they would've gone deeper into who lives/who dies type of thing but in the end it looks like they have enough to save everyone and that lady sacrificied herself for the cop so it took the hard choice from the Dr.'s hands.  Nothing came of people being stuck in the hospital unless the whole thing was a setup to get Jr to be a cop.

I'm getting annoyed with the lack of scientific or rational problem solving as regards the dome. Everyone just seems to accept it and pretty much ignores it, when I'd be thinking constantly about it, trying to figure things out about, spraying it with paint to make it visible, spraying it with water to see if it is in fact a dome, going underground to see if you can go under it, (only Junior had the idea to do that, and he's nuts). Seeing what it's permeable to, like air, other gases. Seeing if it gave off any electrical or other fields. Is it solid but invisible, like a transparent brick wall? Is it a force field, which would need a power supply?

Yeah, the writing on this show is just plain dumb in regards to several of the main characters.  Again, I haven't read the book, but my firend who has keeps telling bits and pieces about characters and such and this show seems completely off.

Did anyone else wonder how Junior with a shotgun was really that much of a threat that he could stop a mob of crazy sick people?  I mean, what's he got 1, maybe 2 shots in there?  Not much of a threat. And then the bigger question is why would everyone in the hospital demand to be let out?  Obviously they are well aware that there's an outbreak and its highly contagious.  And where exactly would they all go?  Just go home and not have any treatments?  Certainly, they aren't going far what with the titular dome around the town.

@Didgyb2001, while I do feel like the town seems to be too ok with the fact they are stuck in a dome we've seen at least the scientists testing it from the outside.  And the one kid was mapping it out at least.  They just aren't showing enough of that kind of stuff.  One thing I wish they would show is them trying to communicate with the outside world more.  Like wouldn't these people want to at least see their loved ones who got stuck outside.  I can't imagine parents outside not demanding to see their children and communicating with them through the dome.  And wouldn't the army and scientists want to know what the conditions are in there, not just on the outside?  I didn't like the army just up and leaving.  I doubt they would exhaust their resources that fast and just give up.  It's like, oh well, guess they are stuck forever, we'll let them all starve to death. 

Karas is right, there is a reason Jr. is a bit off.  He plays it a bit over the top but give it a chance. 

@redhairs, I wound't bum rush a guy with a shotgun even with a group unless it was like a terrorist or something.  I don't think anyone of those guys wanted to die so if they had rushed him, one or two would have gotten a bullet.   And to just leave the hospital, they figured it wasn't worth it.

I'll only keep watching since it is only 13 episodes.

Dodgyb2001 7/18/2013 4:44:25 PM

@DDIA Exactly. I was going to mention how they could set up a wipe board to communicate with the outside world (that's why we developed writing, DOH!!) , and asked where the people who live in the town and were out of it at the time the dome formed are, but the stupid mania comments seemed to be broken and wouldn't let me finish my comment.

 Where are that kid's parents? Or any of the others outside the dome? Why aren't they trying to communicate from outside? The army doesn't seem that insterested either. The kid did a little in mapping the dome, but that's tailed off, and no-one inside the dome seems that interested. If there IS a power supply keeping the dome up and it's inside the dome, the army isn't going to find it. Their major problem isn't going to solve itself, but no-one cares.

So ... umm ..... when do these geniuses trapped under this dome start to realize that they are in some serious sh8t??  Not only are there food, water, and fuel rescources on a timer that is quickly dwindling ..... but what about their AIR SUPPLY??!!  Sure, they have enough in this huge dome to not notice for a while, but soon enough, not only is their oxygen level going to get dangerously low ... the carbon-monoxide levels are going to get dangerously high.
