    Under the Dome

    Anyone else liking this show? It's getting weird, and I like it.

    Thoughts on the kids that have powers?

    Has there been a thread on this? This show has been solid. CBS has to be loving it. Pretty cool taking a Stephen King Novel and making a TV Series about it.

    "The Pink Stars are Falling in Lines."

    Re: Under the Dome

    It's a good Summer tv show. I don't think it'd fare well in the fall or spring.

    Also, I've heard that they're remaking Tommy Knockers.

    Re: Under the Dome

    I read the book four years ago and it got weird quick and there was always a ton of things going on at once. It was entertaining though.

    Re: Under the Dome

    Reminds me a lot of "The Event". Just getting weirder and weirder but now that I've starting watching, I have to finish.

    Re: Under the Dome

    I've been watching it. I don't consider it a must see but now that I am watching I am curious about how this is going to turn out.

    Re: Under the Dome

    My brother-in-law is a freelance cinematographer from Wimington, NC (where the show is filmed) and is actually going to be an extra in episodes 9 and 10. I personally think it's quite good.

    Re: Under the Dome

    The writing on the show is terrible in my opinion. I like the show and watch it. However, I think they could do a lot more with some better writers.

    Simple stuff like they don't have water and it becomes an emergency, then like 10 minutes later it starts to rain. Why didn't they drag that out and make the story line longer? All of the story lines start and end quickly except for the diabetes drug part.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Under the Dome

    The show is weird as hell but that is expected for a show about a dome appearing out of nowhere. I didn't know there is going to be a second season.. I really don't want to wait that long to find out what caused the dome!

    I can't comment on how well they are following the book because I haven't seen the show, but for some reason I feel like the writers have their work cut out for them.

    Is anyone still watching this train wreck of a show?

    It's gets dumber by the week.
