    It's not much cop but I must admit that the latest episode with the MOAB was probably the best since the pilot.

    Having said that the Junior and his ex in the bunker subplot is such bullshit I don't know why they bothered with it.

    Exactly, I'm hoping that subplot is a slow burner on purpose otherwise it's as if they thought it was a good idea on paper and ran out of ideas what to do with it. Whatever the case, I really hope we Jim beat the shit of him now that imminent death is not longer a threat.

    I wonder where he'll store her now that bunker is no longer an option?

    Junior looks distractingly like Andy Samberg, I keep expecting him to do one of his wacky faces at any moment.

    Despite it having a very slender premise that's not that great in the first place, it's been given a second season.

    Second season? So they won't get out then? What rubbish

    So much new information this week.

    Theories:

    - The lights on the "egg" at the end looked at lot like "pink stars"

    - This "egg" appears to be absorbing the souls/life force of the dead, as the number of stars matched the number of deaths

    - so "Falling" in "Pink stars are falling" perhaps means death rather than falling from a height.

    -Maybe the dome is a giant egg, a growing life form in the centre and the humans are its food, like a chicken egg. How many lives will it take before it hatches?

    also:

    Gave up on this after three episodes. It's just awful: lazy, lazy scripting, horrible cliches bumping into each other left right and centre and Big Jim is just a pale shadow of the character in the novel. What a shame.

    @Razz I was impressed by how good your first theory was. Last night I also thought that the entire thing works like a chicken egg with the town being the white. Only flaw is the time it takes to nourish itself and that it's all in such a second hand way.

    I'm quite enjoying the show. Haven't read the book and that usually help.

    Did anyone else laugh when Glasses Lady said goodbye to her "beautiful daughter"? Cut to her sitting there looking like a mixed grill that's been sellotaped to a balloon.

    We were in stitches for most of the 43 minutes, it's the only reason to keep watching.

    :D Not even seen this show but after that eloquent description I have to see this.

    It's funny bad somehow mixed with some intrigue.

    Currently still worth watching if there's nothing else to watch and you set your expectations right.

    I'd say that's definitely a good thing, in this case, because whilst they're using some of the same characters and the initial premise, they're definitely taking them and the storyline in different directions to the book. Left me very confused as I was initially under the impression it was meant to be an adaptation and a one-off mini-series, that they've already announced a second series and the obvious changes are leaving me wondering where the hell this is now going.

    Yeah, I don't like this talk about a second season.

    Soooo, another not bad episode, yeah?
    The story's intrigued me enough to get on with the book (Can't be arsed with waiting to see the mystery pan out over multiple seasons) even though most who have read it say that this adaptation plays fairly loose with the plot details.

    I thought it was terrible. I even fell asleep at one point.

    Series starts on 5 this weekend. I'm going to watch it, but all the negative press puts me off. The book was fantastic so it's a shame to hear people disliking the characters. They fucked up the casting from the get-go with this though. Big Jim ain't nearly big or "Jim" enough, and I just don't see the people playing Dale and Junior at all.

    A real missed opportunity it seems, thanks to casting agents who haven't even read the book/script.

    The Big Jim in the book if he'd been played like him in the series, the moment that Oli tried to play him, over the propane/well deal, Jim would have got his men and Oli would have been buried in the dirt with a hole in his head. Big Jim in the book was completely self-assured and had so many people at his beck and call, crossing him would have been like committing suicide; instead, we have him telling Barbie that he's the wrong person to cross, I'm thinking, "Why? Are you going to get drunk and then wander around the town, trying to see who can help you?" So, no, these characters are barely anything to do with the ones in the book; it's looking like even the central premise of the story has a completely different explanation and intent behind it.

    Finally got around to watching last week's episode, well that was shit. At this stage I'm really only watching to see how much worse it can get.

    One thing I think is quite funny though, the outside world seems to have given up even keeping an eye on the situation, "oh well the MOAB didn't work, let's go on vacation."

    I still enjoy it. Sure, the acting/direction is surprisingly poor and last weeks episode was rather weak. But for some reason I look forward to the next
