Re: Under the Dome (Season 1 - 2013)

Well, 13 episodes of Under the Dome Started. I was underwhelmed. I guess because I'm looking at this as 13 episodes. Holy crap.
While the pacing was pretty good, it's clear that 'drama' is going to be front and center. Maybe even push The Dome into the background?

I was intrigued by only two things. One is the dome itself. All the questions are there. The second is the mysterious character Barbie. Beyond that all the other characters seem to be cookie cutter. Psycho boyfriend, conniving politician, trustworthy sheriff and a whole slew of relationships bubbling with trouble.

Oh, and the onslaught of ads really gets under my skin. Good lord, they went crazy. I'm pretty sure there was about 30-38 minutes of actual show.

Oh, and Rachelle Lefevre as Julia Shumway is easy on the eyes.



Note: I just found out the studio is waiting to see how this does, in case they want to make this a series. Crap. It is that type of thinking that waters down a show. Remember LOST. I just wish they would do what the premium cables do. Know your agenda, write with a good pace and end and then just end it already.
