'Under the Dome,' Season 2 Episode 2 Recap: The Very Hungry Caterpillar(s)

'Under the Dome,' Season 2 Episode 2 Recap: The Very Hungry Cate
Last week, on the season premiere of everyone's favorite live-action cartoon "Under the Dome," the town of Chester's Mill was rocked by a freak magnet attack and the deaths of town sheriff Linda and magic mystery youth Angie. This week, the dome's current residents find themselves facing a new magnet-powered enemy as they delve deeper into Angie's untimely death. Not Linda, though. Sorry Linda- guess you died too early into the premiere for anyone to care.

In "Infestation," the destruction of last week's invisible magnet monster has left Chester's Mill with a much graver enemy: caterpillar...

'Under The Dome' Season 2 Premiere Recap: Magnets Rule! Also, They Cause Death By Crushing!

'Under The Dome' Season 2 Premiere Recap: Magnets Rule! Also, Th
"Under the Dome" is not an intelligent TV show. It's really just cartoon characters being mashed together in a way that almost makes sense, so long as you don't think too hard. And that's exactly what we got with the second season premiere, "Heads Will Roll."

We pick up right where season one left off- our intrepid anti-hero Barbie is about to suffer a brutal execution by hanging, when the dome gets mad and starts to glow...

Now we know just what that angry dome-glow was. Magnets! Also, a sound not unlike a high school fire alarm, but mostly magnets. Now, you're probably saying to yoursel...

'Almost Human' Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Guided Bullets

January 14th, 2014 8:22am EST
Almost Human
Ever since guided missiles appeared on the scene as super-weapons - beginning with the German V-2 rockets in World War II - science fiction has wondered about the possibility and deployment of guided bullets.   As deadly as the guided missile, now drone, can be, there's something exquisitely deadly about a guided bullet.  Were it possible, the guided bullet would be the ultimate weapon of assassination, capable of taking out any individual in its range for whom the guided bullet was given the proper coordinates.

Almost Human ratified its status as the best kind of near-future science ficti...

'Under The Dome' Season 1 Finale: Here Comes the Sun

September 17th, 2013 11:15am EDT
Under the Dome Season 1 finale
Well, Under the Dome concluded its first season last night, with the sun returning after the darkness, and a big bunch of questions, including why didn't Sheriff Linda object to the hanging of Barbie - when did she accept that there was not even the semblance of law and order in this town?

What is - somewhat - comprehensible now is that Julia is the monarch, or at very least, someone with some connection to the black egg.

Also that the dome was put in place by some being or beings who say - through the semblance of Norrie's late mother - that they are trying to protect Chester's Mill.  Bu...

'Under The Dome' Season 1 Episode 12: 'Incommunicado'

September 11th, 2013 11:36am EDT
Under the Dome
A better than usual Under the Dome 1.12 last night, with Big Jim continuing on his rampage.

His latest victim is Dodee, who never hurt a fly, and has a name right of the 1950s.  Her "crime"?  She heard a military guy, talking on the outside, about the Reverend being killed inside the dome.  And Big Jim hears this.   Life is cheap, under the dome, at least as far as Big Jim is concerned.  But at least he's consistent: he's come to hold and act on the position that anyone who poses a threat to him is fair game to be murdered.

Not only that, but Big Jim also destroys all of the radio station...

'Under The Dome' Recap: 1.11: Benefactor

September 3rd, 2013 8:38am EDT
Under the Dome
Finally an episode - 1.11 - of Under the Dome that moves the story along - somewhat.

Julia is shot by Maxine, and may even have died for a moment - medically - but Barbie brings her back with his military medical prowess.   But was it really Barbie, as Joe thinks?  Or is it actually the dome, bestowing some goodness on Chester's Mill, after throwing a fit, in the form of an angry storm, because Junior left the circle of four?

I'll just note that I can't blame Junior completely.   Even though Angie's justified in being so cold to him - after all, he did keep her hostage through a bunch of ...

Under the Dome 1.10: The 4th Hand

August 27th, 2013 1:30pm EDT
Under The Dome
In the mashup of intersecting stories that is Under the Dome, the one that moves the science fiction forward in episode 1.10 is the fourth hand.  We find it belongs to Junior - who has suffered seizures like the other three hand-holders - and all four hands unleash something from the egg within the little dome which now also has a caterpillar on the way to metamorphosing into a monarch butterfly.

But what does it all mean?  Little to no clue as yet - just a chrysalis and pink stars -  so the science fiction part of Under the Dome has moved forward just a smidgen, or less than the thickness...

'Under The Dome' 1.9: The New Woman

August 20th, 2013 8:57am EDT
Under the Dome
Leave it to Under the Dome to pull a rabbit out of a hat - or a major new powerful character we haven't seen before - in episode 1.9, with the summer series three quarters over.   Well, in all fairness, she did play an important role in the very first episode.  Barbie was talking to her on the phone when he was burying Julia's husband Peter.

This gives some plausibility to how Maxine got into the dome - she was already in Chester's Mill when the dome descended - though of course she could have been anywhere in the world on the other end of the phone connection to Barbie.  And the phone cal...

'Under The Dome' Pilot Review

June 27th, 2013 12:22am EDT
Under the Dome
Stephen King's Under The Dome was released in 2009, 2 years after The Simpsons movie. In The Simpsons movie, the EPA drops a dome around Springfield, and Homer needs to save the town. I joked at the time that Stephen King had run out of ideas. I imagined him watching The Simpsons movie and deciding to see what the story would look like if told seriously. Under The Dome's gotten pretty good reviews. My two friends said positive things about the book, though they did not like the ending. CBS would be wise to avoid keeping an ending considered horrible by people who've read the books. A series...

Under the Dome
CBS' upcoming summer series "Under The Dome" centers on a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome that surrounds it.

The town's inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from and if and when it will go away.

The serialized drama from Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television is based on Stephen King's best-selling novel of the same name. The 13-episode series stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Br...
