UNDER THE DOME – My rating: 8/10

UnderTheDomeUnder The Dome is about a small town, Chester Mills, that’s suddenly enclosed under a 10 plus miles clear, dome that’s high enough to allow rain.  No one knows where it came from or if it’s ever going to go away.  There is no way in or out.  The town is literally trapped.  There is no way to get any medical supplies to the people or food.  The military tried to blow the dome up with the mother of all bombs but failed.  In the meanwhile, there are many stories going on all over town.  For example, a councilman’s son kidnapped a former girlfriend and locked her in his bomb shelter.  2 kids have seizures whenever they touch the palms of their hands to each other.  Several police were killed,  each in a bazaar way, the councilman killed the town reverend who was involved in illegal drug dealings and several strangers with unrighteous agendas are trapped there as well .  If you think this sounds crazy, you’re right and there’s much, much more.  Season 2 of Under the Dome starts airing June 30, 2014 .  I watched season 1 (13 episodes) on Amazon Prime.  I was hooked in no time.  This is a Steven King story produced and directed by Stephen Spielberg.  It’s quite good.  The opening of season 2 should be very interesting!

Season 2:
Very disappointing opening. The drama was played down and unrealistically, the stars stay the stars, functioning as though nothing happened. I am very disappointed at where and how the story is headed. Because they’re trapped under a dome, there shouldn’t be any new characters, but there are.  Go figure.  The writing is getting sloppy and not making a lot of sense. I’m afraid if things don’t change, this series may get cancelled.
