Trivia

In the 3rd season, episode 2 when Junior burns down Big Jim's house, Big Jim confronts Junior. In the background when it would appear that Junior is looking at Big Jim as he is standing in front of a lake you can see a palm tree to the right of the screen in the background and a partial one to the left. Seeing as how Chester Mills is supposed to be located in Maine, palm trees wouldn't be that far north. See more »

Quotes

James 'Big Jim' Rennie: [Opening Narration, Season 3] Four weeks ago, an invisible dome crashed down on Chester's Mill, cutting us off from the rest of the world. The dome has tested our limits, forcing each of us to confront our own personal demons... rage... grief... fear. Now, in order to survive, we must battle our most dangerous adversary... the enemy within.

Absolute juvenile garbage
11 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I forced myself to watch all 13 episodes of season 1. The only people worth any praise for this garbage are the FX guys. The characters are wooden and poorly acted, mainly because the script sounds like it was written for pre-school children. The characters are so stupid and unintelligent in their actions and dialogue; I kept waiting for an explanation for this stupidity to come from the psychological interplay with the dome! This series was obviously written and produced for a particular audience; unintelligent, knuckle dragging, bible belt dwellers somewhere in the southern states of the USA. Why some television executives in Great Britain thought this was suitable for us Brits is beyond my rationale. Whoever it was, he should be sacked. If you want to waste 520 hours, like I did, then watch it, but remember to remove all sharp objects from your kitchen draw lest you harm yourself through the overwhelming feeling of utter exasperation.
