Did You Know?


Norrie Calvert-Hill: We should have killed Big Jim when we had the chance.
Joe McAlister: Why would the dome want us to do that?
Norrie Calvert-Hill: Look what he's doing, Joe. Pulling all these Nazi moves? Breaking into your barn like he owns the place?
Joe McAlister: That doesn't mean we should kill him.
Norrie Calvert-Hill: Really? What do you thinks gonna happen when he finds Barbie? Your monarch won't be crowned, Joe. More like the monarch gets his head chopped off. You know that quote? "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing." That's us,...

Watching paint dry
9 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought or I hoped it would be more exciting and realistic than it has been. It holds interest for a few minutes, but then the paint drys. I have missed a couple episodes, not intentionally, but the next coat just goes on. And maybe I just missed it, but has anyone tried to dig under the dome or even drill thru it?? Isn't that the real world?? Tonight, it appeared that , at least, people are starting to get suspicious. The female sheriff isn't curious enough or gutsy enough to suspect anyone or investigate anyone, or to even try to form a group to figure out a way to get out of the dome. And why isn't the outside world being included in this "drama"? Surely they know people or have reasons to try to break into the dome. It would make a good "Fantasy Island" series, but NCIS is much more interesting and realistic.
