    I love this show and usually every time I really like a show…it is cancelled. I get sick of all the cop shows and murder and violence. I love something different and Under the Dome and Resurrection are a fresh change.

    I really love the TV show under the dome. It is a great show! It is really interesting and keeps my mind bending and twisting in every way, and until the next episode I make ideas up for what I think will happen next. I really hope this series shoots for a third season! :)

    I actually love Under The Dome. It is very entertaining, I like all of the characters and the plot that twists and turns and keeps you of your toes. Frankly I am sick of all of the reality shows like the Khardashians and Honey Boo Boo. Those two shows are for mindless idots. The only thing I would change is give Under The Dome 23 episodes per season like you do Blue Bloods and NCIS. Those three shows I mentioned are really excellent. I like to watch to be entertained and forget about the rotten day that I might of had and these three shows really help me do that. I hope that you keep all three on the air for a long time.
