Quote from: Jobydrone on July 05, 2013, 12:26:59 PMI am hoping that the episodic nature of this series helps with the major problem I have with most Stephen King adaptations. With very few exceptions, the characters in SK film/TV adaptations lack the richness and development they get in his novels. I think what most people love about his books is that his characters are so relatable, and rich, and when freaky things start to happen to them we feel it that much more because we care about the people. I don't know if it's poor casting, bad acting, bad scripts, or a combination of it all and more, but the characters in film adaptations like the Stand, It, Pet Sematary...you name it really, all seem paper thin and one dimentional, which makes the creepy stuff seem less real or meaningful. For me the exceptions are Carrie, the Shining (the film not the terrible TV mini series), and Christine...great acting made the difference in these in my opinion. I am hoping with ten or twelve episodes, Under the Dome has a chance to really make you care about some of these people.

Or is it just me?I will say I'm not as entranced as I thought I'd be. I think it's interesting enough to hang on for a bit. There may be 2 likable characters in the whole show, the cop (I forget her name) and the smart kid. That's a bit of a problem for me.
