Under the Dome: Season 2 [Blu-ray]

 

Under the Dome: Season 2 [Blu-ray]

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 1/6/15

This is a show I've never seen before, but it looked good, and I planned to watch it eventually. I love Stephen King and almost any scifi, fantasy or supernatural shows on TV.  Judging from this DVD, it's a very good show. It has a lot of action and scifi elements, but it's also very scary. It's very Stephen King. I just ordered the first season DVD so I can watch that one, too.

If you haven't seen it, you won't be completely lost if you watch one of the DVD extras "Welcome Back to Chester's Mill". It'll fill you in on whom everyone is and what happened in season 1. It's invaluable. If you've already watched the first season, then you'll enjoy this one, too. It's very good and has lots of great actors.

"Under the Dome" is about a small town where a large invisible dome suddenly appears, trapping the town and everyone in it. Since I haven't watched all of the two seasons yet, I don't know what's behind the dome, or if we know yet (I'm sure there are clues). It appears to have some magical or mystical force behind it.

There are many great extras on the DVD. It's a good set to own, especially on Blu-Ray! Check it out.
