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.

Nearly all the reviews compare this to the book and theres a reason for that. The book is fantastic, with deep interesting characters that drove a quickly escalating chaos that included some of King's darkest characters.

If you enjoyed the book, prepare for no similarities between it and the series, except for the basic premise of a dome cutting off a town.

I can accept deviations from a book to screen adaptation, and it certainly doesn't kill the movie/series. Jurassic Park is a classic movie in its own regard that deviated much from the book while maintaining a success as a stand alone. But while plot deviations I can handle more or less, completely changing the main characters into unrecognizable people is unacceptable. The entire story was character driven, and without King's characters you're left with CBS' Under the Dome, not Stephen King's. Barbie, Junior, Big Jim, Phil, Rose, Rusty, Julia to name the tops, the book laid out interesting and some deeply disturbing characters, and all CBS had to do was loosely follow their original concepts. But to completely re-imagine each and every one of them in a bland vanilla way, with everyone watered down doesn't add a thing. Read the book, then watch this and try to tell me how the series' character changes improved anything. Literally anything?

How does changing Junior from a murdering, sociopath, necrophiliac out of his mind on a dark rampage against Barbie because of an unknown brain tumor to a handsome teen with an unhealthy attachment to his girlfriend improve his character or the story?

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.

Every good drama I have ever watched has ended the season with some sort of closure, maybe with the exception of the killing. This show starts off with several good episodes that drag you in to the show. Then a little over mid-way through the show it starts getting repetitive. Due to the dome it is nearly impossible to introduce new characters and therefore we are stuck with the same villain throughout the whole season. There can be no resolution to this because then there would be no season 2. It was a fail from the beginning. I can almost guarantee they wish they had trapped 2 towns instead of one so next season isn't just a drawn out conclusion that should have occurred mid-way through season 1.

I have given fair warning as I wish some of you had given me. Well I guess some did but I thought 4 stars, it must be good. As a whole the reviewers on here have failed this time.
