It's a very interesting show full of good acting and a great story line.

I become detached from the show when I find myself saying "why would someone do something like that?".

After every episode I watch, I can't wait to see what happens in the next one, I love shows like that!

I just finished Under the Dome last month and was not aware a show was coming out. I think I would have enjoyed the pilot more if the book wasn't so fresh in my memory. King's website has a letter from the author regarding his thoughts on the show. He pretty much affirms that the book and show share only a title, some character names, and the town name. He seems to have given his approval. I like the idea that he suggests there will be an alternate ending; something that I don't think will really spoil the rest of the episodes.

However, every character seems to have gotten a major personality, role, and familial relationship overhaul. Some, like Barbie's, are hard for me to digest. Some seem unnecessary. Some seem like they have occurred because the show isn't on a cable network, where excessive darkness and gore would be more acceptable.

I have learned to believe that adaptations should not always be direct translations, but inspired by the original source. I will probably continue to watch the show, but I certainly hope people do not skip the book.

I started watching this because I thought it was going to be a summer mini-series. I didn't have time to read the book, but it sounded interesting so I was excited to see that it was being made into a TV series. I must admit that I was really disappointed to hear that they have decided to stretch it out into a 2 or 3 year long show. It would have been nicer if it was just 8 - 10 episodes and then stopped. I can't imagine that it will hold my interest over several seasons.

This show Started out great, and seemed to have some potential. Then ended with a terrible finale that leaves you more angry than intrigued about having to wait for the next season to start. Very disappointing.

The show got extremely boring as it progressed. It was a complete drag from about episode 7 and it culminated with a very stupid finale.
I would avoid it, as it will only make you very disappointed that you wasted 13 hours watching it.
The acting was also very unmemorable. There is not one actor in the entire show that stands out. Every single character will at some point make you extremely frustrated for how ridiculous their character becomes.
Overall, this was a waste.

I'm a big Stephen King fan, and although I haven't yet read Under the Dome, the pilot episode makes the television adaptation seem like it might be worth sitting down to watch on Monday nights. The story of course is just being set up in the first episode but has already taken baby steps towards what might (and probably will) happen later on in the series, including the good and the bad characters. The acting is above average, nothing jaw dropping though, and it'll be interesting to see what happens to the small town atmosphere as the show goes on.

The one qualm I have with the show is the somewhat lacking special effects. For example, the bit where the dome comes down and slices the cow in half looks very poorly done, as well as the plane crash. This might be a big turn off for others, but this is just a small one for me, since I would rather have the show focus on the plot and characters than making the most believable effects possible.

Others have complained about the show not staying true to the book, and from a quick look at the Wiki article for the book, this seems to be true. But remember that The Shining, one of the most popular King adaptations, strays far from the book, and is considered a great horror film. It is disappointing if a film or series doesn't try to mimic the source, but there are times when the movie or series takes on a life of its own, in a positive way. It'll be interesting to keep up with this series and see how it progresses later on.

Some of the acting is...meh. However, the writers do a good job making it necessary for me to binge watch. Major cliffhanger. The 2nd season needs to come soon.

13 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Hitch on September 24, 2013
I'm only rating this one star, because I can't rate it zero. What did this show have? It had contrived situations, bad acting, incredibly trite and overused stereotypes (the ubiquitous hip black DJ, replete with stand-up dreads, his Big-Beautiful-Woman female tecchy assistant [because tecchy chicks can never be hot], The red-headed hottie-but-has-a-past crusading journalist, the big hunky action-star competence-porn hero-but-has-a-secret for whom she falls, hard [10 seconds after her husband mysteriously disappears], the self-inflated bigshot from Town Hall, who turns into Hitler the second he thinks he can take over; his psycho son, who is big and tall and strong but emotionally 8 years old; OH, and wait, yes, I almost forgot: the bi-racial lesbian couple with their "adopted" punky, gothic-y, rebellious teen daughter), and never misses a stereotype, beat of trite dialogue or stupid action piece from the beginning.

It's so awful you almost HAVE to watch, because, after all: Spielberg, right? The guy who brought us the magnificent mini-series, Taken? That guy? And you keep thinking..."Spielberg, Spielberg, any second now, this is gonna get better..." but it NEVER DOES. It gets WORSE. When the town has an act of violence, the solution? Take everybody's guns away, "voluntarily," to which--with food and water and other necessities like medicine running critically low, the townspeople all pretty much happily give up (to the Egomaniacal Town Boss, who of course, keeps HIS, along with his band of armed vigilantes). Really? If people were being attacked around you, for their food, etc., would YOU give up your ONLY protection, in a town with ONE cop? And it simply goes downhill from there, plot-wise and suspension-of-disbelief-wise.

The acting is just...dreadful.
