Under the Dome (CBS 2013-2014 Dean Norris, Mike Vogel)



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

Under The Dome is based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel about a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive transparent dome. Just before the Dome appeared Dale “Barbie” Barbara, an army vet arrived in town on something of a secret mission; Other key characters include journalist Julia Shumway who becomes romantically entangled with “Barbie”; The local politician and used car salesman Big Jim Rennie and his thoroughly evil son Junior.

King’s original novel galloped towards a conclusion, the ending of which won’t be revealed here but this being an American TV series CBS went for more of a long term view. In fact the second season saw the ante being upped somewhat with the dome turning Magnetic at one stage.
