Well that didn’t take long. Two weeks after getting out of the dome, they are all back, minus Lyle, with the addition of random computer nerdy guy, Hunter, that will likely be Joe’s new best friend. And Mama Rennie even made the trip back with all of her paintings fully intact.
I swear it was like we were back in ’94 for an episode of Sliders. After locating the Red Door, which turns out to have been in Barbie’s backyard the entire time, the Outsiders (let’s call them that for this week) head through some portal that looked very much like this:
Anyone else remember the show Sliders? I’d actually love to see a reboot of that. And our Domies totally pulled their own version of Sliders last night by heading back through some strange portal that causes hallucinations which ended up being the highlight of the episode.
Once again, the episode was a Tale of Two Cities: Zenith and Chester’s Mill with Barbie and the Outsiders trying to find the Red Door while Big Jim continues to try to solve the mystery of how Barbie escaped the Dome.
AHS Fans! The time has finally come for the folks at FX to start dropping promos for the upcoming 4th Season of AHS: Freakshow, premiering on Oct 8th!
So far, there’s only two, check ‘em out below:
CAN’T FREAKIN’ WAIT!
It appears that everyone who is trapped under the dome is an idiot which probably explains why everything Barbie does while outside of the Dome is ineffective. Simply put, people who are not from Chester’s Mill are just plain smarter.
Once again we got to see Barbie, Sam and Lyle hanging out in Zenith while the rest of the Dometards went on a bunch of mindless adventures. At least we FINALLY got to see what is going on with all the military outside of the Dome…kinda. And another nice LOST moment which ended with epic failure as Barbie was only able to write down “Don’t J” before getting re-arrested by the military.
We also met some new nerdy character who works for Barbie’s dad but is also trying to hack into the company who is just paying him to keep quiet. Dometarded. I, personally, didn’t care much for this guy and who knows what this corporation’s involvement is, but it’s pretty clear that Barbie’s dad is somehow involved with the Dome after Barbie found video footage of the Domies on his laptop! Maybe this is one giant reality TV show after all and CBS is attempting to fool us with bad acting and terrible writing!? Who knows. Either way, we’re going to the other side of the Dome this week so enjoy the review.
Under the Dome went HOME on Monday’s episode, appropriately titled Coming Home, and surprisingly the change in scenery was 10,000% beneficial to the shows plot. We all knew Sam didn’t die but rather got sucked into the Dome’s butt portal which happens to be in mid-air on the side of an underground cliff. And once again dictionary editors everywhere are having fits with this show by allowing brand new words and sentences to form out of thin air, just like the Dome!
There were really only two stories to follow throughout this episode. Barbie and Sam are in Zenith, which also happens to be Dome Baby Miranda’s home town AND Barbie’s home town…that might be a bit far-fetched to me. Anyone else wondering why this City is named after an alien planet and why it also LOOKS like some futuristic city on another planet?
The other half of the episode took place on the edge of that underground cliff where the teenage Domebusters (Norrie, Joe, Junior and newly acquired Miranda) attempt to find out if Barbie and Sam are in fact dead after falling to their alleged deaths.
Well, you know what they say…GO BIG OR GO DOME! This week though, we’re actually going HOME! Enjoy the review Domies, Domettes and Dorphans!
Big shout out to my good friend Stewie! In other news, dome-shaped fruit sales are spiking. It is a good time to be a Watermelon Farmer. Coincidentally, it’s also summertime so I highly doubt the dome has anything to do with this.
That said though, the first half of the episode was beyond terrible but the action picked up in the second half and got me back to a point where I am actually wondering what is going to happen next. Also returning: BENNY! That’s right, Benny makes this show better. Is it a coincidence that the pink stars only show up when he does? Me, and Benny’s stash of hallucinogens, think not.
With another character potentially biting the dust and the pink stars returning (as well as the NEW version of the four hands), the show isn’t THAT bad any more. I mean, it’s still bad, just not THAT bad.
And because I feel like dancing, I went with an upbeat song selection this week. SKATEBOARD P FTW! Enjoy Domies and Domettes.
Last night’s episode of Under the Da-Da-Da-Dome, titled Reconciliation, only proves that the people in Chester’s Mill are pretty much as dumb as a Duck. Ducks, you ask? Why ducks? Why would I compare this show to ducks…they are so freaking cute, all chillin’ in their ponds, quack quackin’ it up. Well, there is a method to my madness, especially if you’re into ’80’s cartoons involving talking ducks! And besides, the town is chock-full of quacks anyways so it only seems appropriate.
We went to the ’90’s last week for the making of Barbie’s new music video but this week we’re going back another decade: The 1980’s…where every single cartoon on network television had a better plot than this show. Even if they involved filthy rich talking ducks!!!
Now, this week’s review, told entirely by changing the lyrics to one of my all-time favorite ’80’s cartoon intro’s. Enjoy!
If the rumors are true then we are in for a treat! A very peppery treat! People were already speculating about this, including myself, and because of the 1950’s setting, this is indeed THE opportunity to finally bring a character from a previous season back! That character is, obviously, Pepper from Season 2’s Asylum! And if the rumors are true, she will be teaming up with some dude named ‘Salty’!
Another ridiculous and totally wack hour of Under the
Dumb Dome. And the only cool thing that happened on this episode DIDN’T EVEN HAPPEN! So, once again, we’re going to have a little fun this week at the cast’s expense. This time, since they have lost their Internet and still haven’t been able to locate the router for a quick reset, we’re going back in time to the 1990’s…a time where there was no Internet. No cell phones. No texting. And no Sushi (oh, Norrie!). Just good ole’ fashion MICRO FILM!
This week, I thought I’d go back in time like the Domies, but instead of the ’80’s, I have decided that the ’90’s is the more appropriate selection.
Rather than me write a bunch of crap about how bad this episode was, I’m going to let these new lyrics tell the story. And if you really wanna have some fun, try singing the screencaps to the song. A good time shall be had by all! Enjoy Domies and Domettes :)
What can I say. We are three episodes into Season 2 of Under the Dome and with each passing week, the quality of this show is literally also trapped under a dome but not the same one as Chester’s Mill. I read the book and in comparison to one of the better novels I have read, this show is simply nothing like the novel. And as bad as Linda was, the show has somehow gotten worse without her on the show, which I didn’t even think was freaking possible!
As you can see by the image above, it started raining blood in Domeville. And if you guessed that said blood contained some form of acidic substance that could burn human skin but could not burn through anything else, then you must have been watching this summer’s fastest-growing train wreck. At this point, the story makes absolutely no friggin sense so I thought I’d try to have a little fun with this review since clearly I had no fun at all watching last night’s episode, titled ‘Force Majeure’.
So without further ado, I present to you “Old MacDonald Had A Dome.” Enjoy:
