Quotes

Dale 'Barbie' Barbara: [Opening narration, season 2] Two weeks ago, an invisible dome crashed down on Chester's Mill, cutting us off from the rest of the world. Why the dome is here or what mysteries lie ahead, we still don't know. Every day it tests our limits, bringing out the best and the worst in us. Some say we'll be stuck here forever, but we will never stop fighting to find a way out.

Bad, bad, oh so bad
8 July 2014 | by SoloMarshallSee all my reviews

I never write reviews, but this program has started taking so much a a turn for the mundane I had to type something (and that speaks for itself). It was a good premise to begin with and now just seems to be dragging on for the sake of dragging on. The acting is forced and trivial and I am now in the process of deleting it from my hard drive and memory. This could have been something great, but, of course, it just turned into garbage. Typical TV for today. I really don't know how I can get ten lines of review to meet the IMDb requirements for this show since I have stated pretty much everything in the first paragraph. The show was interesting to start with, even with the bad acting and lack of scientific continuity. It has taken so many twists and turns that the viewer has no idea if something is going to pop up to complete the idea or just left hanging without any concept of completion. This is one viewer who will not be interested in the end, if there is one.
