Under the Dome – Rotten Tomatoes

Vaughan and his team of writers have been of necessity, and I approved of them wholeheartedly. Some have been occasioned by their plan to keep the dome in place over Chester’s Mill for months instead of little more than a week, as is the case in the book.

Other story modifications are slotting into place because the writers have completely reimagined the source of the dome. Positive reviews included Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporterwho wrote that “the intriguing Stephen King adaption is filled with storytelling promise”, [55] Glenn Garvin of the Miami Heraldwho wrote that “based on the pilot episode — with its taut script, strong performances and special effects that are impressive without being overwhelming — there’s hope that Under The Dome might measure up to its unsettling print progenitor”, [56] and Verne Gay of Newsdaywho wrote that the show “looks like a summer winner”.

While the arrival of the dome is intriguing, the characters are not”. I think the story is a shambles and the concept is dumb”, [59] and Verne Gay of Newsdaywho wrote “Under the dumb”. And given the state of horror on television these days, that’s a bloody good compliment. Even while acknowledging the occasional misstep, give Under the Dome credit for getting a lot of things right”, [61] while Sarah Rodman of The Boston Globe wrote that “there are glimmers of hope for season two”.

In a June interview with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss season three, Neal Baer commented on the “less-than-favorable” critical reception to previous episodes. So bring it on! It’s really easy to criticize, and it’s really hard to develop a show. But criticism has changed so much in the past several years because of the Internet.

There are so many places, so many voices. Sometimes it feels like there’s a bandwagon of sorts! The third season received mixed reviews. Positive reviews included Ken Tucker of Yahoo! Clubwho wrote that “this show is always more fun when it leans into its sci-fi elements”, [64] and Paul Dailly of TV Fanatic, who wrote that “All things considered, this was a solid, if unspectacular return for the show”.

The Under the Dome series premiere aired June 24,and established new records.
