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.
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?Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

Well, I gave it a shot. From cliche characters to thin plot lines, the only thing where this movie excelled was in special effects. I had hoped for more from a Stephen King book...Published 3 hours ago by Alberto P.
This is one of very few shows that can keep you wondering what is coming next. A true Stephen King show. Can't wait for more.Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
