    Who's watching it (10 p.m. Mondays)? I do for one main reason: Mike Vogel.

    Is it any good? I've read a lot of Stephen King's books, but I haven't read that one, nor seen any episodes of the miniseries.

    There's only been a couple of episodes but it's got me trying to figure out how the heck that dome got there.

    Part one was great until they hinted that a few people knew what was going on. Now I fear the same old formula will be applied.
    Also, the psycho boyfriend is stale.
    But the rest is very intriguing.

    You won't find that out until much later.

    I read the book last fall and it was entertaining. A lot of it described the way the town adapted a mob rule when it was cut off from the world, with the dirty Evangelical guy leading the way. Like most Steven King books, things get more screwed up as the story goes on. I don't know how the adaptation will be but the book was worth reading (though very long).

    Hell yes! He was babe-like even as the murderous, human-trafficking deputy on Bates Motel, and his character was a monster.

    It's a nifty show, and he's clearly the best selling point. I love how he's always bruised and beat-up.

    I'm enjoying it. I've never read the book and am completely unspoiled, but my first thoughts were that the dome might actually be in place to protect the town from some imminent worldwide calamity? I'm likely wrong :-P

    "Under Mike Vogel" would've made for a much better series.

    watched a bit of it - wasn't so bad actually. The whole idea just makes me think of The Simpsons Movie haha
    couldn't believe Britt Robertson is in it though haha she's never been in a successful series so far, has she?
    Love Mike Vogel though - still wish Pan Am was still on icon_sad.gif

    Watched the first episode and couldn't stop thinking "this show would be SO much better if a cable network made it". I'm afraid I'm too spoiled by shows like Walking Dead, American Horror Story and Mad Men. Regular network TV just seems so lame in comparison.

    "Simpsons Did it!"

    All I can hear in my head every time I see it..

    ..But in all seriousness I've seen a lot of Stephen King movies (probably all of them) and this one feels no different.

    I imagine its either, an ancient native american artifact or alien something or another projecting a bubble around the town. And if he follows any sort of pattern to writing.. the twist is probably something like, the device activated to protect itself because the end of the world is coming and its actually the people on the outside who are in danger, while the people inside run amuck in a panic.

    Would be my guess.. let's see what happens! icon_lol.gif

    the pilot was very good....the first episode was too terrible lame ass dialogue cliche ridden and woodenly directed ! cant say much without spoilers - could have been so much better in the hands of the right studio....heck even Syfy's Haven was a million times better than this - Canada's Lost Girl and Continuum are better ...pity

    I have read the book two years ago and I loved it! Of course I enjoy any of Stephen King's work. So far the miniseries is enjoyable, but some of the story line is way off from the novel, however.

    Another book of SK's (I feel) that should be made into a movie/miniseries is 11/22/63.

    Yeah, in my opinion, it's not very good. Bad acting, bad script, and barely any likeable characters (whether hero or villain).

    Thought it was a stupid show. I kept wondering how would these people survive if no fresh air or rain comes in. If they all collectively passed wind, would the air kill them all?icon_lol.gif

    They addressed that by showing that when the dome's exterior was sprayed with a fire hose some water leaked through, like a sieve. Which would account for all the WIND blowing inside the dome.
