Despite the bizarre twists, bad choices and head-scratching scenarios, I'd venture to say that "Under the Dome" was the TV show of summer 2013. No matter how bad it got, we kept watching. This the finale ended with as much fanfare as the show began.

The Dome Is Angry

The CBS summer drama officially went off the rails a couple weeks ago, but that doesn't mean this week's episode didn't elicit a handful of gasps.

We're only three episodes away from the end of the season, and it's pretty clear the writers have decided to have a few drinks and write whatever pops into their minds. This week, it's an illegal fighting ring set up by Max to make money and entertain herself along the way.

Last week, looters trashed the grocery store, unruly rioters killed Rose inside the diner and it began to rain within the dome. This week, the first dome-baby was born, Big Jim got robbed and a whole lot of people died.

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 is even scarier.

It's been five weeks since we met the Chester's Mill captives and the general public is allowed to come visit the dome for the first time. And by visit, I mean they're being bused in like tourists by the military to gawk at the unlucky town.

To summarize: the town has been struck with a deadly disease and an ensuing supply shortage, and a shotgun-wielding Junior is on guard duty. Things couldn't get any worse.

Last week we met the unfortunate residents of Chester's Mill. Unfortunate because they're now sealed under a transparent and impermeable dome with limited resources and no clue how to escape.

It's Goin' Down

Stephen King adaptations have had a checkered past, but if Monday night's "Under the Dome" pilot is any indication of how the rest of CBS' summer series is going to go, expect to be hooked.
