CBS Renews Under the Dome

Under the DomeThe CBS executive session is happening at TCA press tour right now, and it’s being widely reported on Twitter that the network has announced an official renewal for Under the Dome. The second season will air next summer and Stephen King will write the premiere. Ah, here’s the tweet from the official account:

And honestly, my main question is . . . why? And HOW IS THIS SHOW SO BORING?

UPDATE: Here’s the press release.

Under the Dome: “Outbreak”

Under the DomeSo . . . I mean this in a nice way, but does anyone care? I will admit that I’ve been very disappointed by Under the Dome so far, and it seems that many of you are feeling the same way. For a situation with so much obvious tension and danger, the show seems oddly . . . boring. I don’t object to changes from the book in theory, but as I’ve said before, a lot of the things they’ve changed seem to make the plot less interesting. I’m happy to keep posting about it each week if people want to discuss, but if no one does, I won’t bother. Let me know!

Anyway, on this week’s “Outbreak” . . . well, at least we got some answers about Barbie and Julia, maybe, if Barbie’s telling the truth. They made Barbie way less sympathetic in the show than in the book, which seems like an odd thing to do for the person who is more or less your leading man. And . . . oh, Angie. What are they doing with Angie? When she was found at the end of the episode, I realized that I had completely forgotten that a supposed main character was in life-threatening peril all hour. That is not a good sign.
