New sci fi series about an invisible dome that traps people into a town - those who try and escape/touch it get an electric shock

no one can get in or out, tho water can seep in, there is no wifi/tv or phone signal but a local radio station can broadcast

those who watched under sufferance Revolution on sky 1 may enjoy grin

Looks good. I'll have to watch the repeat on Tuesday though.

can I add the book was amazing?

is there a watch again service with 5? our recorder box thing has been sent away to be repaired sad

Have set the box to record this.

Revolution- I so wanted it to be better than it. It sent me to sleep virtually every week and I go to sleep watching very little (even the crappest of the crap I can normally not snooze in front of!)

Should get a life!

I have just seen the ad for this and can't WAIT!

Finished the book a couple of days ago, I was completely underwhelmed by the last King book I read but this one was great.

Sounds like the Simpsons film smile Have set it to record tonight as I'm bound to forget to watch it

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 19-Aug-13 14:30:57

Havnt read the book but just as well as prob will change the storyline

I need a new series to get my teeth into as no Hannibal les revs or even crappy revolution anymore to watch

Read the boom a few years ago, couldn't put it down! Looking forward to the series!

*book

superbagpuss Mon 19-Aug-13 20:01:07

its on at ten as per my TV guide?

BatCave Mon 19-Aug-13 20:01:58

Am recording, but might watch this tonight. Every other Steven King film/tv version I've been disappointed with, although I've by no means seen them all. High hopes though with Spielberg on board.

I'm half way through the book so am going to sky+ them to watch once I'm finished.

might get confused though cos Hank from Breaking Bad is playing Big Jim Rennie smile

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 19-Aug-13 22:03:43

bugger yes 10pm not 9pm - sorry -on now smile

blondes waits eagerly !!!!

I came on here to start a thread about this! I enjoyed the book (and the Simpsons parody!) so watching with interest.

Oh wow. Excellent shock

superbagpuss Mon 19-Aug-13 22:18:47

first 15 mins
what do you think?

MikeLitoris Mon 19-Aug-13 22:25:28

Im loving it so far.

Not read the book yet. But love stephen king.

Is it sci fi or supernatural?

superbagpuss Mon 19-Aug-13 22:31:19

ummmmm both wink

not completely true to book but quite liking it

MikeLitoris Mon 19-Aug-13 22:34:35

Argh! I hate not knowing! Especially when i know there is a book.

It seems to be staying true to the spirit of the book, even though some of the details are different.

LtEveDallas Mon 19-Aug-13 22:39:01

Love the book. Hate Jim Rennie and it looks like he is following the same storyline. Could easily fancy Barbie! Thought the cow was excellent SFX.

Problem for me is that I hated the book near the middle, hated what was going on, and I'm worried that the show will go the same way. It's a great story but made me really uncomfortable. Ooh hell.

superbagpuss Mon 19-Aug-13 22:42:55

anyone else keep hiding behind their hands?

I agree this will be must watch but uncomfortable to watch TV

MikeLitoris Mon 19-Aug-13 22:56:57

I'm itching to download the book and read it before next week
