I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate Brit Robinson, but I loooooooooooove Rachel Lafevre.

Nice little drama.

Don't really need the Dome at all.

Your TV is being a dick.

Holding out on you.

Slap it.

Evolution on their perception of their trap... Nothing, a wall, a dome, a sphere.

If they're not in the centre of a sphere, then some bugger should find a spade.

Which is odd, since it seemed like the Dome was dropped, from the sound effects used.

We, my youngest son and I, thought the first episode was interesting and we will be watching it again next week. I haven't read the book.

I liked the first episode, but I have to be one of those people (just cause i'm me) and compare it to the book. I don't think the changes are drastic or overwhelming, mostly. I just think that Big Jim and Junior Rennie seem a lot smaller on screen than I imagined when I read about them. (I guess they couldn't get John Goodman and Abraham Benrubi to play the parts. oh well...)

I've read the book a while ago. Thus far, I like what I've seen, but dragging it on for more than one season will get old fast.
I do hope they change the ending to give a longer and better thought out explaination for the dome.

I liked the first episode. Will hold off on reading the book until the show is done.

Ratings are in

CBS’ Under the Dome just debuted to a whopping 13.1 million viewers and 3.2 rating among adults 18-49 last night.

That’s the most-watched summer debut on any network since NBC’s The Singing Bee in 2007. It’s also very competitive with last season’s crop of dramas, matching Fox’s The Following as the second-highest new drama debut (NBC’s Revolution was #1).

People that do that piss me off. It's a TV and a book, they will always be different.
