Under the Dome - Season Finale
Is anyone still watching it?
Ignoring the fact that it has very little to do with the original book, here are my impressions:
1. The townsfolk are dumb. REALLY dumb. They believe everything whatever Big Jim says. You'd think someone would question him a bit.
2. Can police departments do ballistic tests? Can they check for Gunshot residue? They could prove that Big Jim did all of the killings if they made any effort at all but, see post 1.
3. Do they believe in trials for crimes? They are ready to lynch Barbie.
4. The Police chief. In the beginning, she seemed like she was going to be independent and strong. She has just become Big Jim's assistant.
5. Junior. He was crazy in the first few episodes now he just changes his allegiances to meet whatever the writers need.
6. The Monarch. Oh look, the monarch is flying around Barbie. He's the Monarch!!! Oh, now it's flying around Julia. She's the Monarch!!!!
7. This egg is now property of the Police Department. When did they get powers like that?
Are you going to watch it next year? I sort of wish it had been a one shot show.
The show is all over the place...it got progressively ridiculous

1. Yes the towns people are so fucking stupid.
2. Apparently not. THough she is an idiot too, one day she wants to arrest Jim and the next she follows him blindly.
3. again, idiots.
4. in just the last 2 or 3 episodes.
5. he is back and forth, maybe it is to show his imbalance, or yes it could be poor writing.
6. stupid gimmick with no real purpose, like the town people will believe a butterfly.
7. to get stupid viewers confused.
It would have been much better as a set miniseries, multi seasons will be horrible.
I don't know how they are gonna stretch this for 32 episodes.
burn it out, thats how.

I was hoping they would have this shit show wrapped up after one season but I guess they are going to get greedy and milk it until it's as useless as a salad fork in Animalgods drawer.
