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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good bones, bad handling April 24, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Great idea, but not adapted well for small screen. Characters and their actions soon became too unbelievable for me to be willing to suspend my disbelief beyond 4 episodes. Not horrible, but not worth spending much time with to me. Seems like this is the way most Stephen King stories end up when they get converted to TV or movies. :-( .

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really Wanted to Like This One April 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I saw the previews & was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately I just couldn't get into the show. I gave it a fair run but the hook just wasn't there. What exactly is the point to this show? I think one of my biggest annoyances was that I felt like they were trying to get all their Hollywood bases covered under the dome. The show struck me as if they were trying to cover every demographic & stereotype in one show. You have your bad boy mercenary, the nosey old lady, the stand up always do the right thing guy (in this case girl), personal tragedy, people losing their minds, town tragedy, the town secret, personal secrets, murder, our interracial couple (though that's only implied) where we have the black man with the "healthy" white girl, our star crossed lovers (in this case it turns stalker crazy), the psycho rich kid, our homosexual couple with their rebellious daughter, our geek, our stoners, our ditzy high school girls, the girl just trying to get out of the hell hole little town, government conspiracy or aliens, drugs, the psychic seizures, and I'm sure we would have seen the bad boy murderer fall for the wife or vice versa at some point. Did I miss anybody or anything? Now lets throw all this under one invisible dome. Seriously? I don't know if I should be offended or amused. I lean more towards offended, I can't stand stereotypes.

I thought this was going to be a good mystery but from the episodes I have seen it is really just about the drama. The only one really trying to figure it out is the little kid running around with his map & graphing stuff. Everyone else is dealing with their own drama. Also, how realistic is it that NO ONE on the outside is trying to communicate with them? I know the government has issues but I can't see them ignoring them completely.

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?
