    Must read the book now so that I can become a bookwanker and spoil the shit out of the TV series by accidentally reveal stuff by my noncomital comments.

    That looked kid of cool though. I've been looking for something me and the missus can watch together.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Jeff Fahey! Fucking w00t, I've not seen him since Lost and he generally adds value, it's a pretty decent cast actually.

    Where was Jeff Daniels? I didn't see him in that and he's not in the cast list. Do you mean Jeff Fahey? Didn't know he was in Lost. He's ace.


    Anyway, this looks great. And for the sake of bookwankery, it does appear like they're changing things from the book a fair deal.

    Yes, it's absolutely Jeff Fahey. Just had a bit of wine and a toke, so I'm all swimmy in the head!

    He played an airline/chopper pilot in Lost and he was one of the coolest things in it. You have to wade through a few seasons before you meet him for real though.

    Watching Lawnmower Man followed by Planet Terror is quite the interesting experience for Jeff Fahey fans.

    Looks kind of interesting. Where do they go with it though? It seems quite a small area under the dome so how long would they have food for? It seems like the story would have a limited run really. Still could be good if it's a mini series type thing.
  • Deleted user 10 May 2013 16:52:24
    It's being advertised as a mini-series here, so I presume it'll have a full conclusion dealio rather than a Jericho-esque meandering.

    Just read its 13 parts, which is nice.

    Book cunt haters rejoice. It's been confirmed that the series will be radically different from the book. The ending's different, along with the entire motivation for the dome, the characters are different (Big Jim apparently isn't the main bad guy), even the timeline's going to be different (the book was about a week, the mini-series covers at least a fortnight).

    It's not a mini series now, is it? They're hoping to get a second season. I'm sure I read that somewhere.

    Dome Day! It's at least "not rubbish" according to the reviews so far.

    I really do not know why I am surprisingly curious about the TV programme when I thought the book was 900+ pages of terrible fluff.

    They'll surely take out the rape part of the book, hmm?

    Glad this series has a different ending though.

    Lots and lots changed for this apparently. The reviews are pretty good too, looking forward to it.

    Oo, this starts tonight, doesn't it? It's a great premise, hopefully the writer of the TV show can do an ending and make it all the way great.
  • Deleted user 25 June 2013 03:41:35
    Very different to the book thus far (to the extent that I doubt we'll need a book spoilers thread), and it's only halfway through the first episode.

    Wake up Gremmi!

    So is this available to us UK viewers only via the usual "channels"?

    The title is about as self-explanatory as it gets.

    Think of it as an adult/mature version of The Simpsons Movie ... albeit without the 'popping over to Alaska' part.

    I like it as a naming convention. It would work well I think for more programs.

    It's pretty good. Hard to tell from the first episode though, as it was literally all setup and mystery.

    It, probably unsurprisingly, reminded me a lot of Jericho. And we all know how that turned out.

    That stings. :,-(

    Anyway, book was crap. This looks better. Fortunately Australia is getting it aired at roughly the same time as the US. I'll be interested to see how much of a dent that makes on torrent downloads, since Aussies are some of the scurviest bunch around.

    @meme

    For some random reason I watched the pilot of Jericho the other day and this isn't remotely as bad as that!

    Rather enjoyed it, really. I suspect people are going to be disappointed when they realise it's not about the mystery of the dome and more about how a whole town full of people react when they're under stress and can't get away from each other. The only character I found a bit annoying and typical "King TV adaptation" were the obviously psycho guy and the girl he locked up.
