Quotes

Dale 'Barbie' Barbara: [Opening narration, season 2] Two weeks ago, an invisible dome crashed down on Chester's Mill, cutting us off from the rest of the world. Why the dome is here or what mysteries lie ahead, we still don't know. Every day it tests our limits, bringing out the best and the worst in us. Some say we'll be stuck here forever, but we will never stop fighting to find a way out.

Really wanted this show to be great but...
5 September 2013 | by maleficarusSee all my reviews

I just can't get into this TV show. My girlfriend thinks it is the best thing since slice bread, but I do not feel the same way at all. The idea behind the show sounded really awesome but after watching this show this "dome" has just become silly at best. This is a great example of the book is better then a movie, or in this case series. When I watch the show I have no connection with the characters and I really could not care if they lived or died. I also feel the "dome" is nothing more then smoke and mirrors to hook us in at the beginning.

The best I can muster is 5 out of a possible 10 and that is pushing it really. I will be surprised if this series last more then two seasons to be honest...
