I notice the Dome by Stephen King is coming to Channel 5 - has it been televised before this? - if so is it worth watching? I'm a big Stephen King fan. I've read the book.

Maybe I should have put this thread on TV Shows: US - not sure. Ah well.

Under The Dome

The first season premiered in the US in June pulling solid ratings and has been renewed for a second season. Channel 5 will air the 13-part first season in the autumn.

Please read the book first. It's a real page turner and much better than any TV series could hope to be.

Watch the full trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s432vTI-EBE

It's been a hit for CBS in the US. Interesting premise, haven't read the book yet.

I've seen nine episodes and it's pretty entertaining... shame there is going to be a second season as I hoped for a resolution

This first episode is a bit gory...cow split in half and a leg lying on the ground. Is this a taste of things to come? If so I may not continue to watch it...

At the start of the book a poor little woodchuck just going about its business gets chopped in two. The leg from the plane is also in the book.

Is this the only thread for this??

I really enjoyed it. Quick question about the ending of the first episode. Did Duke get shot? Or was it his pacemaker exploding in his chest or something?

No, I've lost count of how many threads there are for this show. There are correctly in the US forum as its an American, not British show.

Well I will comment in your thread then...Bitter experience has forewarned me to stay clear of US dramas such as Under the Dome...the bitter experience of course being the US networks insistence on open ended productions...ie will it all come to a conclusion after one season...two...or possibly even 5...That's a lot of time to invest in a show which was never conceived to have a beginning, middle and a definitive end....Think Lost..although I would rather not

Anyway...I`am hooked!!...pretty decent opening which looks like it has the potential to keep me tuning in for more...Not too keen on the jelous boyfriend story line but other than that the first episode laid down the markers for what will hopefully be the gripping tale of community living in total isolation with no hope of assistance.

I fear you have fell for the usual great opening episode. It's like you said, it will go nowhere but as long as that's known I guess it doesn't matter.

The Returned on C4 has been setup in a similar way.
