Watch Under the Dome on RTL CBS Entertainment HD

12:52:00 AM

I have been a big fan of Stephen King and I can still remember back when I was in High School, I would borrow my classmates copies of any of his books because back then I can't afford to buy it then read it before going to sleep. 

Under the Dome is an American science-fiction drama television series that premiered on CBS on June 24, 2013. The series was developed by Brian K. Vaughan and based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. Both Vaughan and King serve as executive producers along with Neal Baer, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Jack Bender, Steven Spielberg, and Stacey Snider. Danish director Niels Arden Oplev produced and directed the pilot. Neal Baer serves as the show runner for the series.

Under the Dome tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill in Maine, where a massive, transparent, indestructible dome suddenly cuts them off from the rest of the world. With no Internet access, no mobile signals and limited radio communication, the people trapped inside must find their own ways to survive with diminishing resources and rising tensions. While military forces, the government and the media positioned outside of this surrounding barrier attempt to break it down, a small group of people inside attempt to figure out what the dome is, where it came from, and when (and if) it will go away. 

The TV Series has a very interesting premise since I also love sci-fi type of tv shows and movies. A small town is suddenly cut off from the rest of America by a mysterious, invisible dome. Where did it come from? Who put it there? How will they survive? The story begins with a nice set up for the main characters. 

Both Junior and Angie are key players in the series and they also have a very dysfunctional relationship which somehow complicates their connection with the dome. They are joined by child genius Joe, brother of Angie, and Norrie, the funky girl from Los Angeles and daughter of a politically correct lesbian couple. Filling the rest of the cast is Julia, a journalist, Big Jim, and other quirky characters throughout the town; and a man named Barbie, the super ex-military gunman who became close with Julia, whose husband he killed in a fight for not paying up on a debt. 

 I was able to watch Season 1 together with the teaser of the Season 2 at the press screening held at Greenbelt 3 and I was really hooked! Each episode gives away mystery that will really get you hooked to watch it. You will eventually hate Big Jim as well since he plays the evil one in the story. You will like how the 4 characters Norie, Junior, Angie and Joe played abig part in the first season when they find the egg that connects to the dome and they look for the matriarch. 

I am really excited for Season 2 since the plot thickens and the characters will get bolder to find out more about the mystery of the dome.
