    it's in the 2nd season, right? Is it that they didn't finish adapting the original novel in the first season, and it's extended? or are the tv people just making up shit at this point that has nothing to do with the Stephen King's novel?

    Yeah, if you haven't been watching to this point, I'd say don't bother. Season one wasn't great and season two is very weak.

    I haven't read the Stephen King story but it seemed an interesting premise. Unfortunately it's ruined by sub-par script writing. The so-called science they try to weave into every other show is almost laughably bad. Perhaps the most amusing thing is the high school science teacher. She is somehow extremely knowledgeable on everything from physiology to material engineering to climate. Insane.

    ***SPOILER ALERT*** In the first episode of season two, they killed off the hottest gal on the show

    And replaced her with this

    I think they are making it up as they go along because it was a success. A blessing and a curse because of the Gilligan's Island Conundrum (i.e.- If they ever got off the island, the show would be over)

    Samuriai is correct in all areas.

    Doesn't follow the book at all, other than some character names and the fact that there is a dome over the town. Big Jim is a prick in both the book and show.

    Both seasons have taken place in about two weeks but one character has been shot twice and recovered. The townspeople are surely the stupidest people on earth. The dome was probably put in place to keep them from spreading their genes.

    Yeah, one show early in the first season centered on insulin for diabetics. It was a life or death hunt.

    Now I guess we just assume anyone who needed any type of regular medication or treatment is dead...and it's no big deal.

    The first episode made a big deal about the town mysteriously hording propane. They have never followed up on it but everyone is out of gas now. They ought to convert some of their cars to propane. In reality, I think they thought they were going to follow the book a little closer and then had to discard the propane sub plot because of the part it ultimately plays in the book.

    I have a love/hate feeling about shows like this, in that they ignore shit that was major earlier. (LOST)

    She is certainly hot.

    I just finished watching the season finale on DVR. Ugh, so contrived and stupid. Julie was able to limp-run away from Big Jim and all the way across town to the tunnel. Then when in the tunnel, she suddenly needed help merely walking. And then surprise: the the gap in the floor crumbled wider just as she was about to jump. Yeah, who didn't see that one coming a mile away?

    I'm definitely not watching anymore.

    I actually enjoyed reading the vast majority of the book, but the ending was just plain retarded. :facepalm:
