I don't know I think it's kind of dragging along this season. Not as sharp as season one was.

That show looked interesting but I haven't seen any of it.

So, what caused the dome?

I'd never heard of it and had to look it up. It's based off of a Stephen King novel:

The townspeople still don't know for sure.

Apparently those 4 people dug up something years before- Sam and the Dwight Yoakum character and a couple of others - and whatever it was had to do with pink stars and butterflies and the creation of the dome. Yes, I admit I do watch the silly thing. I started watching it because I liked Dean Norris from seeing him on Breaking Bad. The guy reminds me of a heavier version of Bruce Willis, but Norris can really act. He was my favorite character on Breaking Bad. I think they are working this season to turn him into a decent guy on Under the Dome. I wasn't much into this "otherworldly" stuff on Movies and TV until a couple of years ago but my grown kids corrupted me by telling me to watch things on Netflix and now I'm hooked. Whatever it is has to be well acted though, or I lose interest. Game of Thrones is still my favorite show on TV. Doesn't Dwight Yoakum look like death warmed over on UTD? I wonder how much of that is make up and how much is him. Haven't seen any pictures of him in awhile.

I just looked on Dwight Yoakum's website and can't find a single picture of him without his hat. I find that very interesting, considering how he looks on Under the Dome. I'd keep my hat on 24-7 if I were him. He is extremely creepy without it.

I have never seen Under the Dome, but I've seen what's on Dwight Yoakam's dome and I agree with you, I'd keep my hat on too if I were him.

LOL, he must really try to hide it because I had a hard time finding anything on his website where he wasn't wearing his hat.
He plays an extremely creepy character on Under the Dome and he does it very well.
He's a pretty good actor. I think I remember him being in Slingblade and he was very good in that as well.

Yeah, he is not an attractive man, lol, but he sure plays good music. I was just going to mention how good he was in Slingblade. What a great movie.

After watching the first season of "Under the Dome", I downloaded the book to my Kindle. The TV series is NOTHING like the book! I stopped watching the TV series for that reason.

LOL I'd have to quit watching Game of Thrones if I stopped watching things because they weren't like the book. I'm still reading Game of Thrones and it can be confusing remembering things that happened on the series but didn't happen in the book or vice-versa.
Sometimes I think I'll just quit reading the book, because it seems to be a never-ending occupation. I've never even tried to read anything this long before. I hate fat books.

I used to not like his music but then I used to not like Merle Haggard either. As I've gotten older I've grown to love that "Bakersfield" sound, whiny though it might be.
I remember making fun of my uncle when I was a teenager about loving whiny country music. I guess it takes a little age to appreciate it.

I've never seen Game of Thrones either, but I intend to read the books. Don't want to ruin the experience by watching it, lol.

I've always loved both Merle Haggard and Dwight Yoakam, but then I was born in Bakersfield and my dad is an Oildale (Bakersfield) Oakie, so go figure, haha. Way back in the day before he was famous, Merle Haggard used to be my dad's neighbor.

I saw Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam play together at the Crystal Palace (Buck Owens' place) in Bakersfield once. It was pretty awesome.

And I love fat books! :-)

I don't know if "Under the Dome" was a fat book or not, since it was on my Kindle. Took me a while to finish it, though. Again, it so vastly difference from the TV series that I'm surprised Stephen King allowed the producers to name the series after it.

I'm a fat book lover too, Melissa! Smile

I haven't ever seen Dwight Yoakum but I've seen Merle Haggard at least 3 or 4 times and always loved it. He has a song called Chill Factor that I love more than any of his other ones, and his voice used to make my skin tingle when I heard him singing it. He really isn't given credit for how great his voice is enough- he can also do impressions of other singers that are great too.

Nope, can't stand those fatties. I suspect that if I saw Game of Thrones in an actual book form I wouldn't ever start reading it, but since I'm reading it on my iphone I can live with the delusion that it is going to end one day. None of my favorite books are fatties- my 3 favorite books of all time are To Kill a Mockingbird, Angela's Ashes, and Cold Mountain. All those were only a few hundred pages, and I actually read Angela's Ashes in one sitting. That's something I've never done with any other book in my life.

Saw Under the Dome last night- it's just getting weirder and weirder. Now there's not only a dome but a never ending hole in the ground. They're going to try and see what's at the bottom of the hole next week.
Oh, the suspense. Very Happy

King himself did the first episode of season 2 and it was great, he even appeared in it. Since then it's been pretty much down hill. Yokum is good but how many pop up guest can show up in a small town where nobody is allowed in or out? It's starting to remind me of LOST that went places that could never logically be explained. Maybe even the new GILLIGAN'S ISLAND.

It's hobbling along to the second season conclusion. If they don't wrap it up next season they should change the title to Blunder The Dome.

The ending on Monday wasn't bad but I still think they should wrap it up next season.
