Based on the Stephen King novel. Has possibilities.

If it works out, exec producer Brian K Vaughan (aka the man who managed to get a "Razzle Dazzle" into Lost) plans to extend the story beyond the novel & turn it into a regular series instead of a one-season adaptation.

Any thoughts, in spoiler tags, how the first season could end?

Long as the book was I dont think it would translate to a multi season tv show. Same with more of SK's writing, the dude loves exposition for no good reason.

I hope the TV show has a better ending than the book. I felt so unsatisfied after what was otherwise an extremely enjoyable book.

It really took a trip into the twilight zone at the end. Shit came out of the clear blue.

It is a common problem with King. He has amazing ideas for characters and stories but you can tell that he struggles with third acts in a lot of his books.

I loved under the dome until

.
the fire and the aliens and the typical SK "kill em all off"

I agree I loved the book up till the end. I have hopes for the show maybe they can flesh some stuff better.

Okay, being as there are 4 different threads on this show, I chose this one. Watching it now, interesting so far.

Seems like quite a few character changes.

I liked the first episode.

As an atheist here's hoping the series avoids the EVIL MANIACAL CHRISTIANS trope from the book. I haven't read that much SK but he's gone to that well in Carrie and The Mist and Under the Dome and god knows what else.

King is obsessed with religious undertones. There is a religious angle in most of his books. I think the local pastor diddled him when he was a lad, there has to be a reason he uses children so often as well as a scary pastor type character.

Watching the pilot now. Strange way they handled Barbie right off the bat.

Junior's captive is also a bit different, but I guess that kind of thing is frowned upon by network television.

Interesting casting with Dean Andrews as Big Jim.
I wonder if his signature product is blue?
Dean Norris I believe you meant...

Let's not forget, he's also used priests as heroes, as in Father Callahan from Salem's Lot...

Ill give you 5 solid minutes to come up with another religious type hero in one of King's novels.

Mother Abigail from The Stand.
Cancelled out by Flagg, who was also the antagonist in many other books. And I dont remember asking you, Mr. Bibliophile.

Either way you cant deny King isnt religiously motivated in a large amount of his novels.
