In Which I Review Under the Dome (3x1 and 3x2)
--I will say that the CGI for the Dome falling in the alternative reality was quite stunning.
--Big Jim please stop shooting people, especially your son. I know Junior is Little Crazy Pants but putting a bullet in him is not the answer. Also, please stop declaring that "this is my town!" You're a tool.
--"We have to have the egg!!" Yes, Gollum. We know it is the Precious.
--Someone is going to have to explain why simply setting the egg on top of the largest cocoon caused it to shoot off fireworks.
--If the writers wanted the reveal that Chester's Mill was Fake in the future alternate reality, then they needed to not use the very obvious "purple haze" for each and every single transition to Chester's Mill.
--Obviously Ava and Christine are not natural citizens of Chester's Mill, and probably not of planet Earth. But what is Ava to Christine? Daughter? Lieutenant? Rival?
--How many times was "move on" uttered this episode? I'd really like a tally.
--"There's nothing good on TV anymore, anyway." Meta. Meta as hell, y'all.
--Actual. Pod. People.
