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

I didn't like how it ended. Obviously there was always gonna be some cliffhanger, but they usually have a lot of things tied up at the end of a series and I didn't feel like that happened with this.

If you fancy Barbie, he was also in Bates Motel as a cop.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 15-Nov-13 16:52:07

just seen last episode, obv gonna be series 2

im slowly getting through the book - it is big grin

prob 1/4 way through it, havnt even found the mini domw yet - unless that bit isnt in the book, as they have already changed it with killing alice

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 08-Nov-13 22:17:52

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 02-Nov-13 09:54:49

Not weird as I fancy barbie

Big jim is conniving and should die !!!

Weird they all had the same vision - but also weird as in the book junior kills alice right at the beginning so not sure how they manage to be 4 hands in the book

Havnt read that far yet - but why change a crucial storyline from
Book to film hmm sad

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 27-Oct-13 14:38:24

I have just finished the book (after only starting it Friday. Once I start reading a book, I can never put it down!). Oh my, I found myself wanting to throw my tablet at something a hell of a lot during it. VERY frustrating. Had actual steam coming out my ears I think grin

But, I think I am preferring the characters in the series tbh, and the (not that big) different spin they are putting on it. So far, anyway. We shall see.

Not seen tonights episode yet as I was too engrossed in the book and wanted to finish it. Will be watching it as soon as poss tomorrow though!

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 11-Oct-13 23:09:03

I'm getting slowly into the book

Weird reading about things that happened - as in have watched it

Out on the piss with girls tomorrow eve

Have banned dp from even touching sky remote or watching without me - mean blondes

I actually really enjoyed the book. It was a lot more menacing than the series and explored the same idea as his short story The Mist- the way extraordinary events can turn regular people into either heroes or monsters.
And the way herd mentality can strip people of their humanity.

Saying that I seem to recall the reviews were dire so I probably read too much into it!
I'm a King fan though.

elcranko Mon 07-Oct-13 22:50:41

Is the book any good?

I'm a bit baffled by the program tbh, hope we start getting some answers soon.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 06-Oct-13 20:27:14

Running behind as normal. Just seen last weeks one

Also trying to get In to the book but it's hard

anonacfr Fri 20-Sep-13 23:06:45

At least.
I watched an interview with the writer of the show and he's veeeery intense and cerebral. He's envisioning three 'movements' (series). The second is according to him the other side of the coin (his words) and he didn't elaborate on the third.

The positive is that he's wary of supernatural shows that pile on more questions and mysteries- he thinks the audience loses patience with that. He said he wanted to wrap things up and give answers to satisfy the viewers.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 20-Sep-13 21:39:42

So a year away anon sad

By the way bad news for fans of The Returned. They will start filming the new series in February so it will be shown on French TV at the earliest in October, possibly later.

Bastards.

anonacfr Fri 20-Sep-13 16:52:38

Blondes stop criticising Revolution. You know you love Monroe it.

I really enjoyed the book (although read it a while ago so can't remember the details- I seem to remember there was a big 'fundie' end of the world angle from one of the characters that is clearly missing). I can't imagine the show as it is now will be as intense. The book has a 'Mist' feel and some characters seem way nicer in the show than they were in the book.

I haven't seen the latest episode and was going to watch it tonight but I remembered I have the latest ep of Whitechapel ready- definitely first choice for me!

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 20-Sep-13 13:12:20

total cheese but has to be eh

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 17-Sep-13 14:03:55

Haven't seen last night yet - dp too tired and we both like - bout the only thing of mine on planner that isn't crap - according to him pmsl

Book has come. Plan to start tonight in bed - it's quite big - def money's worth smile

Rummikub Tue 17-Sep-13 12:52:04

I might give the book a whirl then. I clearly am oblivious to the advertising efforts as the Microsoft /tablet thing din register at all.

MikeLitoris Tue 17-Sep-13 12:28:51

I did roll my eyes at the tablet. So cheesy.

aliciaflorrick Tue 17-Sep-13 12:04:18

I'm about half way through the book, possibly getting a bit sci fi, but mainly more character development and a bit of gore. The book is brilliant I'm really enjoying it. I'll stick with the TV series but they're very different.
