New Zealand is pretty.

I think that ginger kid is gonna murder that sheep. Oh, yes. Lovely.

 

07 Aug 2012 - 10:06am (EDT)
anninyn

Hahahah it was the lead boys pet sheep. HE CALLED IT DUDLY. He deserved to have his sheep murdered with a name like that.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:07am (EDT)
anninyn

That sheep was skinned in a very short amount of time. Their housekeeper is remarkably calm that some kid is wearing the bloody skin of a sheep. And all that was jsut a nightmare/flashback and our lead male is surrounded by sheep and having a panic attack.

anninyn

Ok, here are our other characters. Obnoxious hippy stereotype number 1 and cute blonde chick variety 3.

It’s taking a long time to set this up. GET TO THE MURDEROUS SHEEP ALREADY.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:13am (EDT)
anninyn

Oh, dear. They’re really going all the way with thes sheep thing. Has lead boy completely forgotten the taxi driver sitting there on the clock?

07 Aug 2012 - 10:14am (EDT)
anninyn

That was an awkward bit of exposition. Though ‘still funny about the sheep? beeeeh’ was a pretty good line.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:16am (EDT)
anninyn

Becuse a lot of scientist carrying things marked ‘contaminant’ isn’t utterly suspicious, obnoxious hippy?

Ah, plot related stupidity.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:17am (EDT)
anninyn

Aaaand the contaminant smashes and… hahahaha! creeepy carnivorous sheep fetus!

07 Aug 2012 - 10:17am (EDT)
anninyn

Seriously, a hippy is being attacked by a sheep fetus.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:20am (EDT)
anninyn

How did the creepy sheep fetus get all that way?

07 Aug 2012 - 10:21am (EDT)
anninyn

Oh, it’s bitten a sheep. Can we finally get to the sheep noms now? I’m not watching this for ham-fisted attempts at characterisation.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:23am (EDT)
anninyn

“Hands up!”

 

*drops sheep*

 

Hippy has gone to eating live rabbits. YES, NOW WE’RE WHERE I WANTED.

Sheep just aren’t scary, even when they’re trying to tear a mans throat out.

07 Aug 2012 - 10:32am (EDT)

07 Aug 2012 - 10:43am (EDT)
anninyn

They should stop trying to make things have an emotional effect and just stick to flesh-eating sheep, to be honest.

Okay, I think I have this figured out… I’m trying something new this time, and I’m live-blogging Under the Dome’s season premiere. Should be interesting…

I’m expecting weirdness. This episode was written by Stephen King.

So we pick up from last season’s finale, where Barbie is about to be hung by the lynch mob and the dome is doing crazy glowing shit. Also, now it’s magnetized.

Barbie isn’t hung (obviously) (well, not in the sense that he’s going to be executed). Julia, our monarch, was by the lake and…she finds some random girl in the water. Because the lake coughs up people, I guess.

The police officer from CSI: NY is stitching up the hole in Julia’s shoulder (did she get shot? I can’t remember).

Junior finally figures out that Barbie didn’t kill anyone and his dad is the ultimate bad guy and goes after Barbie to help find Julia. Or something. Barbie goes to hijack a car, and is held up at riflepoint by the car’s owner (who sucks with weapons, apparently, because he disarms her in like two seconds).

Aside: who IS this lady? Where did she come from?

Metal! Is flying! And I mean ALL metal — including knives and nails from the wall! A nail spears Joe in the hand. So magnetic dome = bad.

But wait! It also drops the bomb shelter door on Barbie’s head so maybe it’s good?

Annnd…Joe’s house collapses. Um. Okay. I don’t…okay.

So Big Jim is trapped in the bomb shelter. (AHH sorry did I say Barbie got trapped in the shelter? It was Big Jim. Apologies.)

Guess who’s in the shelter with him. Dodee. That’s right. Dodee.

Except SHE DIED LAST SEASON. I’m guessing either ghost or hallucination.

Or I don’t know, maybe she’s alive. This is Under the Dome.

30 Jun 2014 - 10:22pm (EDT)
char

Dodee is very smart and attune to the dome, for a dead person.

30 Jun 2014 - 10:25pm (EDT)
char

The dome wants Big Jim, and won’t stop until he dies! Or something. (So says Dodee’s Ghost.) (Can’t say I’m complaining.)

New Lady with the Rifle is very knowledgeable about the dome and magnetic field. (She’s a science teacher, I guess.) They’re building a giant magnet to counteract the dome’s magnetism. Okay then.

CSI Guy is in a cabin with Julia, watching over Strange Girl from the Lake. Julia goes off to do something, and CSI Guy flips through this crazy scrapbook of weirdness with sketches and handprints in blood (I think?). While’s going through the world’s weirdest memory book, he realizes that Lake Girl has wandered off.

Angie sees her walking down the street, but ignores her and goes off to the diner to get a gun. Junior comes in and says “The dome was right, my dad is EEEEVIL” and offers to get her a gun from the police station.

 

30 Jun 2014 - 10:30pm (EDT)

Ahahahaha… Big Jim, to Dome Dodee: “Shut up and be dead!” after she tells him he’s not listening and the dome will refuse to let him go.

In reply, Big Jim blows up the door to the bomb shelter. Because of course he does.

30 Jun 2014 - 10:31pm (EDT)

So magnet experiment is now under way. Everyone but Barbie collapses. (Marty Stu alert!)

Okay, live-blogging is getting very tricky with the baby trying to get to my computer as well. I’m going to have to stop it here and re-watch it later, when I can pay attention. Then I will recap. Watch for it in the next couple days!

Until next time!

About char

I'm Canadian, which according to movies and TV means I'm part of the group that's almost always wiped out during the apocalypse. I’ve watched too much Star Trek and Stargate over the years and spend too much time at my computer. Now, I'm waiting for the arrival of (and human enslavement by) the Borg or the Goa'uld. That is, if my computer doesn’t swallow me first. When I'm not at ICoS, you can find me on Twitter @ApocalypseMama or on my blog at apocalypsemama.com. Of course, you can always email me at Char(at)incaseofsurvival(dot)com.
