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.

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.

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.

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.

When it was a miniseries last summer (or so I thought) I had it on DVR, to watch when I had time. I never had time, so I deleted the entire series, figuring I'd find it somewhere or another eventually.

Well, I did. Is this series like the book? No, except in minor details. Is this series terrific? YES! I watched it only because I see it is coming back this summer -- apparently I was the only one who didn't realize it wasn't a summer mini-series.

Even though it has a lot of the same things going on in the series that went on in the book, there is a lot more going on. I absolutely loved it. And if Season 2 doesn't start soon, I'm going to scream. For those of you who watched the first season "live" I don't know how you're getting by without it. I literally screamed at the end of episode 13. I mean I screamed LOUDLY. (I didn't know my husband was home, he came home while I was watching and knows better than to interrupt me most days.) He came in to find me shuddering . . . and got worried about him until I was able to catch my breath and tell him what I just said above. Pshaw was his reply, and pshaw on him right back.

If you want to watch something that will literally hold your interest this is a good bet. Even the breaks for commercials (which although the commercials weren't there) were too long.

A sure fire winner in my opinion!

BTW: This is my #2 book with a runner up, 11/25/63 is also my favorite #2 book. #1 is and always will be The Stand. Another GREAT miniseries (and in only four episodes that was truly what it was!).
