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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately interesting story September 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blunder the Dumb August 31, 2013
Thinking that Under the Dome might make for some good summer tv, I've watched the entire series to date. I can't recommend it. The premise is silly sci-fi, granted, but sets up the possibility of some entertaining fun. However, like most tv, unless having your intelligence insulted entertains you, then you might look for something else. I certainly would like to dissuade you from spending money to watch it. CBS is still free over the airwaves through your local affiliate or you can go over to your mom's like I do and watch it on cable. Please don't waste your money of this one.

So what's so wrong? Mainly, the writing. Stephen King can write excellently at times. He didn't write any of this schlock. While he banked the check, gave the nod, and approved it, his name on it is merely marketing. The actual writers, who I'm too bored to look up, ought to be ashamed. Good actors are easier to come by and they've wasted them and made them look bad. Throw in a bunch of bad actors and you've got a mess.

Dean Norris, the villain in this series, Big Jim or Big Hank, at least gets to show that it's not him every Monday night. He gets to show on Sunday night that he's a capable, if not great, actor. Mike Vogel makes the most of his part. Yes, he's handsome and his anti-hero character creates a "mysterious" back story, yet the more the writers reveal about Barbie, the more the back story disintegrates. Poor Mike. He's doing the best he can. Britt Robertson, however, is what kept me watching past the pilot. She made the show as the captive Angie. This girl is special and she will rise above this series. Once Angie is released, Britt has to play along as best she can with the poor writing. Disintegrates.

Rachelle Lefevre is a cute redhead. But she's no actress.

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.
