My girlfriend doesn't like violence or anything that shows animals being hurt , in movies and T.V .So I double checked with her before we sat down to watch the first episode of UTD the other night. ( she's one of "THOSE" people meaning she doesn't read Stephen King.
So as most of you know , in short order we're treated to ; a cow getting cut in half (and close ups of same );a small airplane flying into the dome ,resulting in a pile of wreckage with a severed limb ; crows with broken necks , again from flying into the dome. And a woman with a freshly cut off hand ( she happened to be reaching exactly across the space where the dome came down .
Still my girlfriend is enjoying the show though she keeps asking me questions that I can't answer. 1) because it's been awhile since I read the book and 2)because they've changed things so much.
Hi guys at first it I diddn't like all the changes but now we who have read the book don't really know what is going to happen so it leaves us wondering whats next. I'm sure SK won't let us down.
I enjoyed the book, as i do much of SK's books, but i just don't know about the TV adaptation. Under The Dome has a very set time frame. I just don't know how this can be a series. A miniseries like The Stand, but not a soap opera. So far i don't like the first episode. So far the only similarity between the book and TV show is the title and names of characters. Is SK Ok with this show? did he give his approval? so far I'm disappointed. They ripped apart this book to make this series MUCH MORE then they ripped apart The Shining to make the Kubrik version (and didn't SK not like that version?). I hope it gets better.
