<i>Childhood's End</i> Syfy Mini-Series Is Watchable at Best
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Based on the 1953 sci-fi novel by Arthur C. Clarke, also known for 2001: A Space Odyssey, Syfy's Childhood's End is worth watching. Yet by choosing to leave out some Clarke elements, also left out some brilliance. Helmed by Nick Hurran and written by Matthew Graham, the three night six hour mini-series, or a tad over four hours without commercials, opens as a scene begins with astrophysicist Milo Rodricks (Osy Ikhile) on a post-apocalyptic Earth. He's speaking to a floating silver spherical device the size of a softball, recording both his image and words, as he speaks of being the last human being. Among the parting words, he says, "I got a favor to ask. Don't forget us. We may have many faults, but we don't deserve to be forgotten." Such is the opening of part one, titled, "The Overlords." All which gets your attention. Yet if one has read the book, like I have shortly after knowing about the mini-series debut, the scene gives away the goods way too early. The next scene goes ba ...

Under the Dome: Who Will Be Crowned the Monarch?
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Neal Baer answers burning questions on the dome's power Joe seemed to quash that theory, pointing out to Norrie that Angie's butterfly tattoo is not a Monarch. "There's much more to come in the Angie-Junior relationship, especially when, in an upcoming episode, they're brought together in a stunning way," Baer teases. Though Junior seemed crazy at first - he claimed he locked Angie up in the fallout shelter because she was "sick" - now it appears he predicted this would happen. "Does the dome control people or is the presence of the dome making some people crazy, others valiant?" he says. Or is the crisis making people do things they never dream they'd do? "Maxine is a catalyst; she sets off explosions," Baer says, noting that her presence will force Big Jim (Dean Norris) and Barbie (Mike Vogel) to team up. Duke [Jeff Fahey] was her mentor, a father figure, and now she has to face the toughest truth in her life: that he was involved in drugs. Though as sheriff, she sees what ...

Ashley Knierim: When It Rains, It Pours
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 1, Episode 6 of CBS' "Under the Dome," titled "The Endless Thirst." Last episode we saw that even a missile couldn't make a dent in the dome. This week, we reconvene right after the failed launch, and the townspeople are even more terrified than they were before. Sure, sudden death is frightening, but knowing you're trapped under a mysterious bubble that even a missile can't penetrate -- that's even scarier. If things were bad before, they finally hit a breaking point this episode. When we last saw Norrie and Joe, they were kissing as the missile illuminated the sky. This week, Norrie's mother is suffering from a diabetic attack because she is out of insulin. The crazed reverend burned the last of the supply and Alice is having trouble making complete sentences. In a fit of delirium, Alice stumbles into the street as a semi truck comes barreling towards her. She dodges it in time, but the appliance-delivery man swerves ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
As "Under the Dome" approaches its premiere (June 24, 10 p.m. ET), CBS has released a new preview featuring creator Stephen King as he discusses the process of adapting the series for the screen, with cast members such as Dean Norris, Mike Vogel and Rachelle Lefevre describing the impact the author has had on the show and on them personally.

What is "Under the Dome"? After reporters were treated to an early look at the first episode of CBS' new summer TV series -- adapted from the bestselling Stephen King novel of the same name -- executive producers Neal Baer and Brian K. Vaughan (who wrote the first episode) attempted to answer that question and many more.

Why 'Revenge' Is Superior To 'Mad Men'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Under the Dome" author Stephen King is gearing up for the launch of the CBS small screen-adaptation of his science fiction novel, which is set to premiere on Monday, June 24. The "Under The Dome" TV series, which stars Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad"), Mike Vogel ("The Help"), Rachelle Lefevre ("Twilight"), Colin Ford ("Supernatural"), Jeff Fahey ("Lost"), Britt Robertson ("The Secret Circle") and more, follows the panic and chaos that grips the inhabitants of Chester's Mill after a giant, impenetrable dome inexplicably traps the town. "People's eyes are going to bug out of their head when they see it," King said of the show's visual effects in an early "Under the Dome" trailer. "It's going to be riveting TV." But the legendary horror and suspense writer is far from new to the medium of television: He's appeared in "The Shining" miniseries, "The Simpsons," "Kingdom Hospital" (which he also produced) and "Sons of Anarchy," while Syfy's "Haven" is based on King's novella, ...

Bacon Queen Crowned In All-Pork Gown At Sizzling Swine Festival
Huffington Post - about 4 years
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The smell of bacon was in the air Saturday as thousands converged on Iowa's capital city for an increasingly popular festival celebrating all things connected with the meat. Some people wore Viking hats and others walked around with makeshift snouts for the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.
