Under the Dome...Coming in June

Who else is excited for this 13-week TV series coming in June?

Ever since I read the book I thought it would make a great movie or mini-series, so I'm really anxious to see it! It looks like it will be great!!

I'm reading the book now, while DH is listening to it on CD ( he has a long commute)

So far so good and look forward to the TV show!

We just did the same thing with 11-22-63, that would also make a good mini series!

I'm reading it right now and I admit that I don't really like it. I'd much rather see 11/22/63 made into a movie.

Didn't they already make this movie? Oh yeah, they called it The Simpsons.




I did enjoy the book, however.

I'm almost done reading the book now. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the series. However I am not thrilled with the casting. From what I have seen online the people they cast for some roles are not at all what I have pictured in my mind.

Biggest disappointment is Barbie. From the very beginning of the book I have thought he'd be great played by Josh Holloway (Sawyer from Lost). IMO The guy they picked seems too young and pretty looking to be Barbie.

I finished 11-22-63 before this book and I really liked that too. It has been years since I read a Stephen King book and it is nice to be back!

I read the book and thought it was okay, not one of my favorite Stephen King books. Ditto the thoughts about the Simpsons, all I could thing was "Dome Sweet Dome" when I saw the commercial for the mini-series.

I'll probably watch it but with low expectations. I don't recall a mini series based on a Stephen King novel that didn't suck or have such terrible casting that I wanted the heroes to die.

It is one of my least favorite books, but 11/22/63 on the other hand was great.

His miniseries are really hit or miss (mainly miss) - I thought the Stand was passable and should have been better based on the actors - but I think costs and not filming it to movie specs really made it less than it could have been. The Shining remake was horrible.
