Review: “Under the Dome” brings a sense of feeling trapped

Giovanni Rizzotti, Staff Writer

Imagine if one day, you are in a town. Out of nowhere, a massive, inescapable barrier comes down around the town, trapping you and many others inside of it with limited resources.

That is exactly what happens to the residents of Chester’s Mill in the CBS series “Under the Dome.”

“Under the Dome” was a three-season series that aired on CBS from June 24, 2013, to September 10, 2015. The show revolves around the small town of Chester’s Mill, Maine when it is suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by a massive, inescapable barrier made of an unknown material that completely surrounds the town and rises several hundred feet up into the sky.

The show focuses on the people who are trapped inside the dome, trying to fight for survival amid resources being used quickly and rising tensions. It also focuses on another small group of people inside the dome who try to figure out why the dome was even there in the first place.

The series stars many actors, some notable ones being Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, and Alexander Koch.

Although it had a short run on CBS, the show, to put it simply, was an amazing TV show. The actors in the show played their roles perfectly and showed perfect emotions as if this were happening in real life. The show had some very suspenseful parts, with at times you won’t know what will be happening. There are so many mysteries to solve, it makes the show amazing.

Although the show came to an end five years ago and is no longer able to be watched on television, you can still watch it. It is available for viewing on CBS’s streaming service, which is a subscription for $5.99 a month. I highly recommend watching this show, and you will not be disappointed.
