Under the Dome
The Complete Series
Based on the book by Stephen King
Executive produced by Stephen Spielberg and based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, UNDER THE DOME: THE COMPLETE SERIES arrives in a new collection featuring all three seasons on 12 discs, and a trove of behind-the-scenes interviews, inside looks at the mesmerizing special features, along with extended and deleted scenes. Starring Dean Norris (“Breaking Bad”), Rachelle LeFevre (Twilight) and Mike Vogel (Cloverfield), and full of “high-octane fun” The Cleveland Plain Dealer), UNDER THE DOME was created by famed producer Laurent Bouzerau (Indiana Jones, JAWS, Back to the Future).
UNDER THE DOME begins when a small, idyllic town is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive, transparent, and indestructible dome. Military forces, the government, and the media positioned outside the barrier attempt to break it down, while the residents trapped inside must find their own ways to survive with diminishing resources and rising tensions. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from, and when (and if) it will go away.
For me, Stephen King can basically do no wrong. I love his books, and my favourites are the ones that would fall into the “dystopian literature” category (although there is lots to be said for his thrillers and horrors). Dystopian is my preferred genre of books, and the general theme is about the social and political happenings after an end of world experience (for example: an alien attack, or a nuclear war). Dystopian shows, and miniseries, (aka: science fiction mystery dramas) also tend to rank up at the top of my favourite list. Under the Dome is one of those miniseries that kept me on the edge of my seat tuning in for more.
I have not read Under the Dome (the book), but it is on my wish list. It was released in 2009 during a time when I had two babies (a newborn and a one year old) so reading was not at the top of my priority list. The series, ran on CBS from June 2013 until September 2015, and featured 38 episodes. New to DVD on June 20, 2017, I’m excited to be able to share the Under the Dome adventure with my 19 year old son who didn’t watch it when it aired on TV.
What I love about the way Under the Dome ended (NO SPOILERS) is that it was left both open and closed. They could have made an additional season, but the ending is such that we were not left hanging needing more. For me, the ending was very satisfying, and I’m looking forward to reading the book in the near future.
