Under the Dome

Want to know how that pesky dome works in CBS's new drama Under the Dome? The network has released a handy chart that explains the "rules" of the dome. Memorize it and see if the show sticks to the laws of its universe as the series continues.

Rules of Under the Dome

    It sounds like being in a huge prison – except life in a prison comes with a lot more amenities and prisoners don’t worry about their next meal or garbage not being collected – down to where an insider may meet outsiders separated by a transparent barrier. Obviously, insiders don’t care about Nielsen, ratings, or TVbtN. :grin:

    “most places have telephone cables underground”

    most? hardly. anyway most isn’t all. that’s like saying Modern Family is illogical because most people dont have a gay brother. 2nd this is a small town.’the denny’s’ is a local hangout all the way across town this isnt NYC with all its amenities. there seems to be an absence of basic logic in your ‘logic’.

    Didn’t the simpsons already do this already

    What about hide speed projectiles ie bullets. When the dome first came down, why did no one try to fire a GUN?? Or how about placing some TNT at the base and seeing what that does. I like the show but they were a little to blasé about the dome appearing. ” Oh darn there is a wall/ force field here. We’re just some small town hicks. We’ll just walk/drive around for hours then meet up at the city hall.”

    actually king wrote it before simpsons. Under the Dome was in working stages as early as 1982

    if you read the book, or knew enough about physics, you’d know how very bad of an idea that is.

    anyway, this is the first episode! most characters were either helping the injured or being the injured. give it more than an hour before saying they haven’t tried anything.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    Wow folks just chill and go with the show.
    More will be revealed.

  • psychic

    No WiFi inside the dome?? All the teenagers will be going into hysterics.

  • Randyaw

    Didn’t care for it but that said I’m willing to give it a couple more eps before deciding to give up on it or not.

    How about an infographic for…

    “Inside the Bubble – DC/NYC/Hollywood”

    That’s just it, I haven’t read the book. And the show wasn’t an hour. It was the better part of a day, shown in one hour on tv. Somebody, anybody with a gun should have tried to shoot thru the field. Remember this is the stuff of science fiction. No one living today is really going to believe in an “Unbreakable” forcefield.

    Does anybody remember what destroyed the dome that protected Argo City? Was it the meteor shower which put holes in the city’s lead lining, exposing the Kryptonite underneath? If so, a simulated meteor shower may be what is needed to breach this dome. :lol:

    5th episode in, still a LOT of wind. While the dome may be able to create it’s own “micro-climate” they’ve only been in there for a week or two. I highly doubt that in that time frame the dome has created a micro-climate with a micro-jet stream!

    I am still off put by the wind! Yes, why can air/wind/some water, but not sound waves!
