Editorial Reviews

Stephen King's popular fantasy-thriller Under the Dome makes a largely successful leap to weekly television series, as evidenced by this first-season set. Overseen by a host of high-profile creative figures, from King himself and Steven Spielberg (both executive producers) to Lost veterans Brian K. Vaughan (credited as series creator) and Jack Bender, Under the Dome expands considerably on King's central premise of a small town in Maine that finds itself cut off from the world by an invisible, impenetrable dome. Tasked with making order out of this sudden chaos is a cross-section of everyday citizens, including former Special Forces vet Dale (Mike Vogel), newspaper editor Julia (Rachelle Lefevre), newly minted sheriff Linda (Natalie Martinez), and scientifically inclined teen Joe (Colin Ford), as well as Machiavellian used car dealer Big Jim (Dean Norris of Breaking Bad) and his deranged son (Alexander Koch). Tension builds at an agreeably brisk clip over the course of the debut season's 13 episodes as forces outside the dome attempt to break through while residents trapped inside struggle to make sense of their fates while contending with the growing and insidious influence of Big Jim and his son. Expanding the already sizable Dome (one of King's longest written works) into series format has its pros and cons: characters are given more time to develop, and many of the changes made to the book's premise--most notably to several characters and the nature of the dome itself--are mostly positive ones, and the large cast capably handles the material, with Norris and character actors Leon Rippy (Deadwood), Mare Winningham, and Ned Bellamy, all in recurring roles, taking the lion's share of the laurels. On the downside, however, the story feels stretched thin over the course of 13 episodes instead of a miniseries length: certain characters' actions feel shaped by the need to extend their arcs (sheriff Linda and Koch's Junior, for example), and key discoveries that would normally change the direction of the main storyline are left dangling, undoubtedly to be addressed at a later date/season. Dialogue too remains a consistent weak spot, and may put off casual viewers drawn in by the considerable attention and high ratings generated during Dome's initial network run. As it stands, Dome is a good if not great King adaptation--certainly better than most of the TV efforts to translate his work--but the jury remains out on whether it can hold its own over the course of multiple seasons.

Extras on the four-disc Under the Dome set are substantial and vary from behind-the-scenes material to viral content. The show's inception and production is chronicled in several lengthy and detailed featurettes, including the 29-minute "Filming the Pilot," which features interviews with Vaughn and most of the major on- and behind-the-camera talent, as well as numerous moments with King himself. The author is also featured in his own extra, which pairs him with longtime friend and fellow author Michael Connelly for a brief read-through of the book's opening chapter and discussion of the show's expansion of the source material. "The First Season" adds considerable making-of detail for all 13 episodes, while "From Novel to Series" and "The World of Under the Dome" cover writing and casting and location work, respectively. Less compelling is "Joe's Blog," a series of 11 text and video posts generated by Ford's character, while the de rigueur gag reel and deleted scenes are, for the most part, forgettable. Three-plus minutes of promotional spots round out the wealth of supplements. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Under the Dome, a new 13-episode miniseries based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from and if and when it will go away.

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.

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.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed September 19, 2013

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would have paid for this Prime content! June 28, 2013
By Sandra
As a long time Stephen King fan, I read "Under the Dome" and most of his books. Maybe my imagination is lacking when I read because I was awed by the visual impact of the dome's slicing and dicing. The cow, the plane, the vehicles impacting, and finally the exploding pacemaker were beyond what I could visualize when I read the book. King's books are great but the movies can be even more compelling and scary. The Shining's "Here's Johnny" scene comes to mind. I look forward to seeing the rest of this ad-free mini-series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bait & Switch September 20, 2013
The only reason I suffered through the poor acting and repetitiveness of this "mini-series" was that I thought it was a mini-series and told myself that I could make it to the end. When I learned that it wasn't the end, I felt cheated. There is no way that I'll be watching season 2, because if I knew there was a possibility that there would even be a season 2, I would have stopped watching season 1 a long time ago.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Epitome of "King On TV" Experiences September 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
How can I put this best. Now, mind you, I'm a long time King fan, and I've seen almost all the tv/movie adaptations of his stories, and in fact I've read almost all of his stories. SO, by this point in the review if you're not getting a "here it comes" vibe, then... get one... lol.

"Under The Dome" was a classic King tale of things gone wrong in epic form. It starts out in what seems like an idyllic country town with some dark secrets, and ends in absolute mayhem as every single facet of existence within the trapped town breaks down into total chaos. No more rain or river water means no more safe water to drink, no more airflow means rapid and rampant air pollution, even the dome itself becomes tarnished rapidly as crud begins to stick to it (the pink stars are falling in lines - a real shooting star event seen through the dirty dome!). Even something as simple as a fire becomes a life threatening event because the smoke has nowhere to go! The real beauty of King's story was to attempt to tackle the monumental challenge of just how life would really be if an entire town was trapped in a glass sphere. As you might imagine, it wouldn't be pretty. Even a chunk of desert wasteland inside such a sphere would rapidly die and only bacteria would be able to survive long term. This is the show's main failing - it portrays the delicate state of life and society as if it is not delicate at all, but in fact can survive anything. By doing this to the story, they completely killed the point of King's original work.

Aside of that, they butchered so many plot points that it became a different story entirely by the time they are moving the "mini dome" all around to hide it, and... agh... If I went over all the places they killed one of my favorite stories, then I'd be here all day.

Cliffhanger. 100% "explosion and/or someone about to die" cliffhanger. Sorry if this information comes too late.

If you've been burned by George Martin, the Dome will burn you again.
