Under The Dome gives more than it promises
Posted Saturday, October 12 2013 at 01:00
This is an American Sci-Fi drama inspired by the book written by legendary fiction writer, Steven King. For those who don’t know who one of the greatest fiction writers of our time is, I suggest you read the book. This is behind classics like Salem’s Lot, IT as well as the Dark Tower comic series. These are some of the few credits under his belt.
The series tells the story of the residents of Chester’s Mill, a small town in Maine, a US state, where a massive indestructible dome suddenly engulfs the whole town, cutting them from the rest of the world.
The residents have no access to internet, mobile or radio communication and are faced with the daunting task of staying sane under the burden of diminishing resources and ever brewing conflict. More to this, everyone in the town seems to have their own secret as well as agenda. And with each episode, you discover that there is more than clearly meets the eye.
The show delivers on all fronts and is sure to have you glued to your screen. The plot is very original and King’s brilliance is on display for all to see with believable character building and on point dialogue.
The show has already been renewed for a second season, probably because of the tremendous ratings it received world over. So you can be sure that it is here to stay. This show has potential to become a household name and a talking point for anyone into series.
