Under the Dome

Under the Dome

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.

If only this stayed on HBO as originally planned :(

Good lord, that show is so bad! Bad acting, direction...

People are trapped under the "glass" dome and they are almost like nothing happened! WTF?

emmelinefoxley (Jul 03, 2013)

ok, I just read the wiki entry on the book of the series...... and will stop following. (it sound kind of lame)

aniforprez (Jul 01, 2013)

@kript0x what i didn't like about lost was how they built this incredibly detailed universe, full of questions, mysteries and wonder and then as the questions kept piling up, they, instead of answering at least a good 40-60% of the questions, answered maybe 10 and added another bunch. this kept going and in the end they barely scraped the surface of that giant dung heap of enigmas.

similarly, this show better not build up with interesting characters and a decent story and then ultimately fail to have any sort of closure at the end. but it's based on a stephen king book, a man who actually knows how to write and not by lindelof, the bane of movie-watchers everywhere

kript0x (Jun 30, 2013)

@aniforprez A bunch of semi-random people are trapped in a place where they could fairly easily survive if they would work together, which is hard. It also seems that many of those people have some pretty big dark secrets.

I'm not sure what you dislike about Lost but for me it was that it seemed as if the creators of the show just kept writing extra story, episode by episode which made it tedious to watch.

This series however is based on a book, I'm pretty sure they'll stick to the book and not stretch it out.

aniforprez (Jun 30, 2013)

@kript0x oh god, not lost. i pray to the high heavens and the all-powerful spaghetti monster that it's not another lost

danielol (Jun 29, 2013)

@jmsgomes the dome is pretty big, so it's more likely that some areas are hotter than others (the city, the forest, the farm, etc), and this difference of temperature creates the wind, so it's not "fail".

jmsgomes (Jun 29, 2013)

Does anyone knows why is there wind inside the dome?????????? FAIL

Fairiestale (Jun 28, 2013)

Uhm.. During the first 5-10 minutes I thought 'Wow, a good one'.. then I realized, going forward, that it's not so good! Something is missing.. the reaction of citizens is unbeliveable! Unreal..
And Junior? Really? ..We want to talk about the crazy guy with the knife!? MAH. Holy s**t. What a crap.

kript0x (Jun 28, 2013)

Looking very good. Reminds me of Lost.

aniforprez (Jun 27, 2013)

ummmm WOW. this looks like the beginning of something great. the pain and suffering of living in a fishbowl with the human elements and the inevitable chaos and the sinister undertone of what this giant thing is. not read the book and not planning to cause i don't want this show spoiled for me. maybe after this has ended.

Thomly (Jun 25, 2013)

Pilot was really good, but I found that Junior's guy acting way below the rest. It irritated me a bit, hope he doesn't have too many scenes, but storywise he'll probably will :(

kript0x (Jun 25, 2013)

Very nice pilot.
Good actors, decent special effects. Many cool moments when I went "WOW".
Based on a good book so story will be decent too :)

emonquente (Jun 25, 2013)

People finally figured out how to do Stephen King I think -- deal with all that dialogue and all those characters in a real way. Largely I think the increased budgets (and perhaps more importantly, what those budgets can buy for special effects these days) did a lot of good -- that and the general betterment of acting since many of the old Stephen King adaptations.

Anyway, less abstractly, this looks very promising. Solid acting (well, mostly), and nice visuals. On the other hand, Stephen King's own particular 'voice' seems to be floundering in a sea of others -- but that doesn't mean anything bad necessarily. After all, the concept for something can be created or invented by someone who has nothing else to do with a series and it still be just as good, or even better, it all jsut depends on what voice replaces it.

@Foxhound Yay, Dean Norris.

Aninka (Jun 13, 2013)

Looks interesting..

Foxhound (Feb 25, 2013)

@kakature It's CBS now.

Dean Norris from Breaking Bad has joined the cast. -dome-series/

BertDenolf (Dec 01, 2012)

@dddieter: The series is based on Stephen King's book 'Under the Dome' :)

kippie (Sep 04, 2011)

Is it me, or does the plot sound somewhat like the one from The Simpsons movie? (Yes, I know it's not based on it seeing as the book is older)
