    I'm still watching. I'll admit I'm disappointed. There was a lot of promise here. If it would have followed the book it would have been great.

    Has it become the new Lost?

    Re: Under the Dome

    I started watching this on Amazon Prime just the other day, I think I'm like 3 episodes in but I really don't know if I can keep watching. I feel like the writing is terrible and the actors aren't much better which is a bummer because I thought the concept seemed like it could be interesting.

    save yourself some time and don't. My wife is still watching it and there is very few redeeming qualities in it right now. Maybe there's something there for big B movie fans. Kind of like King's recent books.

    When it initially started I felt it had some promise but now it just a mess. It's kind of like Revolution. I still watch it for some reason even though it goes nowhere.
    If it wasn't available On Demand I would not keep up with it. It's not like I am sitting around the house anxiously awaiting 9pm every Monday.

    Re: Under the Dome

    I am still watching but they need to wrap it up. They either need to all die or find a way out of the dome. If they want to keep viewers watching they need to wrap it up, then slam a dome somewhere else and start over with a new cast of characters. It's actually getting to the point where I am annoyed at the lack of creativity. End this cast, let them out, or kill them all. Then start over again. Just keep putting the dome on different communities. Just my opinion. Oh yeah and fire the writers and get new ones.

    Watching these shows, Revolution and Believe have more of a storyline to the future than Under the Dome does. I mean, what do you do being under the Dome for years? There is a reason it is on during the summer.

    Re: Under the Dome

    Didn't even bother with Season 2. I really enjoyed the book and was fine with them taking some liberties with the plot when it came to putting it on TV. Throughout most of the first episode I was pretty hopeful, then somewhere along the line they just butchered it. Finished the season on Netflix and depending on how bad Iowa is in basketball this winter, might suffer through the next season if its out by then.

    Yes, but very long. Sort of like The Stand. Worth it in the end, but at times it gets pretty drawn out.

    Re: Under the Dome

    BTW can one of you who read the book do a "Spoiler" on how the book ends. I need some sort of ending and I know I won't get it with the TV show. They will cancel it before that happens

    Sure


    Basically the good characters are fugitives in town from the cops/Big Jim and find out through the dreams/seizures that aliens are controlling the Dome. Some of the meth addicts get upset with Big Jim and blow up all the stored propane and causes a huge fire that uses most of the 02. Almost everyone is burned alive or sufficate and I think maybe a total of 3 people make it out. Think the aliens let them out but not sure, its been about 3 years since I read it.

    That's the thing with shows like this. They really need to be produced as a miniseries so you can see some sort of story progression. This just seems to muddle about from one easily resolved disaster to the next (red rain, dust storm, lack of food) While those are cheesy sub plots to the main story it just doesn't seem to have enough direction to keep it moving forward.

    Re: Under the Dome

    I've never seen this show but I am curious if they've ever explained what the dome is and why it's there.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    No they haven't, but they act as if the dome is some sort of sentient being because whenever something happens they proclaim "the dome wanted it that way"
