Steven King's Version outstrips this mockery,
This review is from: Under The Dome, Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video)
For the first few episodes, Under the Dome seems to be doing the author of the massive tome, The Dome, justice, but then suddenly everyone has forgotten what 'evidence' and 'fair trial' mean, all the characters are twisted around, some made blatantly stupid, others just, not dead. Depth and richness disappeared and were replaced with dearth and paucity of quality.
I continued to watch it, but I had to force myself, cringing all the long way. If you've never read the book, you may well enjoy how Hollywood has turned a study of human behavior into a study of script-written stupidity.
The acting was quality in spite of the plot idiocy - that's why 3 stars and not 2.
