[ # ] Under the Dome is back with one of TV’s strongest episodes
June 30th, 2014 under Dean Norris, Under The Dome

Recently, I attended a Summer Press Day for CBS and someone asked if Under the Dome is the first show from Stephen King to get a second season. When she asked that question, I thought she was kind of dumb because both The Dead Zone and Haven got a second season a few more after that.
Then I watched tonight’s season premiere and I understood why she asked that question. Even though I love those other two shows, they do not have the same impact that Under the Dome does.
Tonight’s episode at 10p is one of the finest hours of television I have ever seen and I think I’ve seen about a million hours of TV. The first thing it has going for it, is that Stephen King, himself, wrote it. So right then and there, you know it is going to be brilliant. But then the cast could mess up, but instead they gave his words a life beyond the page. Dean Norris, who plays Big Jim, gives an Emmy worthy performance. He is just so good at being so bad. But it isn’t only the script and acting that make this episode, it is also the cinematography that make this episode beautiful and eery at the same time. It’s like the pink stars lined up to create the perfect episode.
So what happens tonight? I have debated since I saw it how much I want to tell you because there are a lot of surprises you won’t see coming. Because for some reason there hasn’t been that many spoilers for it.
So what will I tell you? As you have heard, there will be death. Someone will die before the first commercial break and someone else right before the credits roll. I will also tell you that the episode starts off exactly where it left off, with Barbie (Mike Vogel) about to be hung. Is he one of those two? As if I am going to tell you that. We also find out what that strange light is, and what it wants. Other than that, I don’t want to tell you any more. I want you to experience this episode as I did. With shock and awe and admiration.
In the next coming days, I will share some spoilers about this season with you. But until then, I want you to go in like you’ve been trapped under a dome since September. If you’ve never seen the show that changed summer TV forever, then you can watch the recap episode on OnDemand. You don’t want to miss the show that over 10 million people a week tuned in for. It’s that amazing, that people are willing to stay in on a hot summer day and watch TV. No other show can say that.
