WATCH: Big Jim Lays Down The Law
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Big Jim Rennie (Dean Norris) probably isn't going to win any father of the year awards on "Under the Dome," but watching his dysfunctional relationship with troubled son Junior (Alexander Koch) has been one of the most compelling aspects of the CBS series so far. In the August 5 episode, "Imperfect Circles," Big Jim says and does what we've all been wanting to do and puts Junior in his place after the teenager's disturbing treatment of Angie (Britt Robertson) -- but will it teach Junior a lesson, or just worsen his behavior? Outside the Rennie family, huge developments occur in other areas of the "Dome," according to executive producer Neal Baer, who told HuffPost TV that the episode has key moments that will leave fans buzzing. "Not only does it grab your heart, but it sets up the path for the future of the show, in a way," Baer said in an interview. "It's a huge turning point for the show, because our kids, who've had the 'pink stars are falling' seizures -- some ...

What's Causing The Seizures On 'Under The Dome'?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
CBS' "Under the Dome" has already provided viewers with a number of mysteries in its first two episodes, but one of the most troubling is the cause of the violent seizures that affected both Chester's Mill resident Joe McAlister (Colin Ford) and out-of-town wild child Norrie Calvert-Hill (Mackenzie Lintz). The Huffington Post caught up with Ford and Lintz on the North Carolina set of CBS' summer series during the filming of Episode 4 to find out what the young stars could reveal about their characters' burgeoning relationship and their mutual affliction. Light spoilers ahead. Colin Ford Give us a little insight into your character, Joe, because he seems fairly similar to his counterpart in the novel. My character is Joe, also known as "Scarecrow Joe" from "Under the Dome," the book. And Joe is a real down-to-earth, normal, country-ish boy who’s kind of shy ... He sees this city girl, Norrie, and it’s like another form of life to Joe, who’s never seen someone with the ...

Everything You Need To Know About 'Under The Dome'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
What is "Under the Dome"? After reporters were treated to an early look at the first episode of CBS' new summer TV series -- adapted from the bestselling Stephen King novel of the same name -- executive producers Neal Baer and Brian K. Vaughan (who wrote the first episode) attempted to answer that question and many more. Luckily, the premiere speaks for itself, offering a gripping, handsomely-produced hour laden with mystery, a slew of creative (and disgusting) special effects, and a number of intriguingly ambiguous characters, lead by "Breaking Bad's" Dean Norris, "Pan Am's" Mike Vogel and "Twilight's" Rachelle Lefevre. The show revolves around the fictional town of Chester's Mill, and explores what happens to its inhabitants after an impenetrable dome of unknown origin cuts them off from the rest of the world. Baer described the series as "the new 'Twin Peaks,' in a way. You know how everyone was stuck in that little place but you really got into the characters, an ...

Michael Shermer: Why Ayn Rand Won't Go Away: 'Atlas Shrugged,' Part 2 and the Motor of Moral Psychology
Huffington Post - over 4 years
After seeing the Los Angles premiere of Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, the film that opens today based on the 1957 novel by Ayn Rand (and with an entirely new cast and higher production value, a vast improvement over Part 1), a question struck me as I was exiting the theater surrounded by Hollywood types most commonly stereotyped as liberal: Why don't liberals admire Ayn Rand and her philosophy of objectivism, so forcefully presented in this book and film? It is not a mystery that the woman who called herself a "radical for capitalism" would be embraced by some conservatives such as Paul Ryan and Ron Paul, but why do liberals not recognize that Rand was also a champion of individual rights, was outspoken against racism, bigotry and discrimination against minorities, and most notably was ahead of her time in championing women's rights and demonstrating through her novels (and films) that women are as smart as men, as tough-minded as men, as hard-working as men, as ambitious as men ...
