Watched it but I thought it was too short, if that makes any sense. They should have done a 2 hour pilot.

I didn't even know it was based on a Steven King novel. Good thing is I have amazon prime and they will replay it on AP throughout the season

You are right, its Mondays. And I thought the same about a special 2 hour pilot. I was expecting the previews shown at the end of the episode would lead into the second hour. That would have been an even better hook on viewers for sure and made the first telecised episode(s) more memorable .

How do you like the the plot so far?

I made an effort to watch it. Same old, same old. Been there and done that. Nothing new to offer except predictable banality. Man cut off from the rest of the world is an old plot line. Still effective.

Except . . .

Appatrently, no communicatio0ns between police and studio:

"A deadly serious deputy made an urgent radio call to his dispatcher, sounding the alarm that 20 shots were fired near an elementary school ... and TMZ has the audio.

The incident went down in Wilmington, N.C. last week, when a TV production crew -- working on a Stephen King show, "Under the Dome" -- staged a shootout scene in a park near the school. The shots were fake, but no one clued in police or school officials ... and they treated it like the real deal.

Pretty scary. "

Just ask Homer and Marge about the dome over Springfield.

I thought a few scenes were interesting, but every scene in the promos took place in the first few moments of the film. I hope it gets better.

Yes, that very beginning scene of the guy burying a body seems to be the mystery that gets carried deep into the show before whats behind it is revealed episodes later. Seems like last nite set the "relationships" scene" like the good sherrif-heart condition vs some guy who threatens to claim authority.

Mista Tali-mon! I went to univ. a couple yrs and we called the metrop "KnoxVegas!" Wow I see your a Nash Vegas siggy!

Nooooooooo! Dont....ok, do!...nooooo wait, dont!.....awwwe hayale Do!.....no no dont....lol!
Yep i want it to be a surprise too. So far it looks like this will not be a "L.O.S.T. groundshog-day" type series where every episode was the same as the last! STILL i am trying to understand just HOW they managed to squeeze that long of a series out of L.O.S.T by playing the same thing over and over and over and......

Did you listen to Madey's REAL police reaction to the filming in his city? Its scary to know that was an actual reaction!

I think I need to read the book first. I could probably hold off on the TV series and read the book before the season finishes and just DVR all of the shows

Not bad. Too early to tell. It reminds me a little like "Jericho", which I thought was a good show that didn't get enough support from CBS.

Oh yes i am with you on Jericho! Loved the show and had great potential. My favscene was when they used a Snow Patrol soundtrack when "Skeet" pulled over on the road, noticing birds dropping dead inflight..sort of like last night scene when the birds hit the invisible shield

From what I've seen, so far it is so so...I don't think it's as good as the Twilight Zone.

MAN! I am a huge Twilight Zone Fan , both the originals and the new series that aired in the early 1990s.
You are right, UTD does not out rank the Classic Dome (the zone)

Watched the first four episodes on demand. It's not bad so far, following the book pretty closely from what I remember. I won't spoil anything, but I'll just say I hope they come up with a better ending than the book had.

I love Stephen King but this is sometimes a problem with his books. It's like he gets to the end and then gets stumped so just tosses something out there. 'IT' comes to mind, a spider? Really. That was a page turner for me and I was so disappointed, such a let down. 'The Dome' was too, not in the same page turner way as 'IT' and others, but a let down at the end.

Same here, love King but he is notorious for his sometimes bad endings. To me the ending of Dome is up there with "it was all a dream" as far as cop out endings go.

Lawdy S T O P! I just hope the series doesnt turn into a "L.O.S.T." flop. I mean i waited an entire week to see what was advertized in previews of the next episode, then find that the "new" episode started with a narrated "Previously! On L.O.S.T!...." followed by a 45 minute rerun....10 more minutes of commercials, leaving only 5 minutes of "new episode".....then the groundhog's-day cycle does it again ending the week with a "NEXT! On L.O.S.T.!"

Saw it for the first time last night. That was a really good episode! It definitely got me hooked "Oh what's going to happen next?!"

Definitely has a lot of King's favorite themes, like seclusion and creepy people (perfect mix for horror).

AFAIK, you can watch it on Amazon if you are a Prime subscriber.

Definitely has a lot of King's favorite themes, like seclusion and creepy people (perfect mix for horror).

I am about halfway through the book (already know the ending as my hubby shared it) but from the 2 episodes I have watched, it has been significantly changed from the book. I read an interview with SK where he said it is fine that they took poetic licence with his work to better adapt it to tv, and he supports the changes.

I actually watched the most recent episode, largely out of morbid curiosity about how badly the book had been mangled. Let's see, critical research failure on a medical issue, very hamfisted deus ex machina, and repeated instances of "a real human being just wouldn't do that in this situation". When the most realistic depiction of human behavior is a near-riot and looting....

Due to uncontrolled circumstances, I missed a BOATLOAD of episodes - not by choice!

Is this still on air and any neat revelations to date?

Got behind when Time Warner was feuding with CBS and they took off the CBS on demand channel. I got caught up when they kissed and made up, but honestly the show has started getting really stupid. I don't know if I'll be watching it anymore unless I'm really bored lol.

I watched the last two episodes last night against my better judgement. Shouldn't have wasted my time. The first few episodes were ok, can't believe how badly they went off the tracks after that. Nothing these characters do has any relation to how real people would act in this situation. Let's see, you're trapped in a dome, a bunch of weird crap is going down, people are getting killed and fighting over food and water, but everybody cheerfully hands their guns over because "Big Jim" made a radio announcement? Lol! The lady cop has to be the stupidest woman on Earth, she believes the sleazy car salesman who she knows is corrupt over Barbie, who she knows has basically single-handedly saved everybody in town at least seven times? (okay, I exaggerate lol) Junior can't keep his hands off of his mini dome lol.
I think what happened is when the network told the writers there would be a second season, they had to scramble and figure a way to stretch out the story. They failed miserably.
