Trivia

The character "Julia Shumway" - the red-headed reporter, shares her last name with an extra terrestrial sitcom character named Gordon Shumway, or more commonly referred to as "ALF." This could be an Easter Egg by Stephen King or Steven Spielberg to reference Under The Dome's alien themes. See more »

Quotes

James 'Big Jim' Rennie: [Opening Narration, Season 3] Four weeks ago, an invisible dome crashed down on Chester's Mill, cutting us off from the rest of the world. The dome has tested our limits, forcing each of us to confront our own personal demons... rage... grief... fear. Now, in order to survive, we must battle our most dangerous adversary... the enemy within.

A downhill slope, so far...
12 October 2013 | by mathias_wallinSee all my reviews

Where this show has both an excellent premise for interesting story-lines and of course Stephen King as a writer, my expectations were high. After seeing the complete first season now, I am sad to say that I was underwhelmed. Admittedly, I haven't read the book, but I am quite sure that Mr. King has not filled it with gaping plot holes and characters that are behaving randomly good and bad (and many times just plain crazy). Sadly, the TV-series has that in abundance. All hope is not lost however, with the firing of some writers the show could be saved in the second season. They just have to figure out how to make the characters motivations and reasoning believable. As of now, this series is sub-par but I am hoping for an unexpected comeback in season 2 in 2014. For now, wait for the complete series before watching or else you're probably gonna be scared away.
