'Under the Dome' Recap: Chester's Mill Heats Up with Fire

Under the Dome made a big impact on the TV landscape last week, as its series premiere drew an impressive 13.1 million viewers, the largest summer debut in years. That wasn't all that was big about the episode, as it set up nearly a dozen characters, hinted at a shadowy town history and quite literally dropped a massive, inexplicable mystery on top. If you missed the premiere, then you'll definitely want to track it down before this week's episode; this hour is all about parsing the rules of what we saw last week, as well as expanding on the ugly underbelly of Chester's Mill that was hinted at before. For every solid fact we get, another two mysteries arise, suggesting that CBS's hearty ratings share will last all summer long.
