I want to say this was an odd episode. But in comparison to the rest of the show, it isn't really. Sam nails it with ADD.
We've got a new lady from the tail section of the plane...the science teacher. Where was this busy-body know-it-all last season? Strange character. And I may have missed it: but how did she suddenly veer into Big Jim Fandom? She thought the magnetic storm was stopped by her magnet, which wasn't specifically Big Jim heroics. And she helped Barbie fly the plane; again Jim wasn't specifically the hero. She seemed neutral, and then she's all but licking Jim's boots.
The brother-in-law. He needs to add another tone. Monotone isn't cutting it. At least duotone could distinguish questions from statements.
And Barbie and Julia are growing apart. I know this because Barbie said "We're growing apart." Tell, don't show me. The heart of good storytelling.
Did Junior -- I'm sorry, James -- kill Angie? Apparently it isn't the Dome Girl, as I thought at the end of last episode?
Who or what is Dome Girl?
Why is James's mom secretly alive in the city?
And will Big Jim institute population controls, to reduce the population in the space station? Oops, wrong show. I mean the dome?
