From Amblin Television and based on the bestselling book by Stephen King, Under the Dome is "classic drama executed well" - NY Daily News. The small town of Chester's Mill is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive transparent barrier. Staring Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy and Aisha Hinds, the epic story of a town in peril unfolds as the residents struggle to maintain control and ultimately figure out the truth about the dome.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings June 30, 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addicting January 6, 2014

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Beginning June 28, 2013
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.

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!).

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed September 19, 2013
By Brett
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paltry series, flat characters, this is not the book October 8, 2013
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?

Wow, I don't care if this is a faithful version of a Stephen King story or not. The bottom line is that the vast majority of these characters are rotten people or one dimensional... Read more
