UNDER THE DOME Recap: “Let The Games Begin”


I almost forgot to watch Under the Dome this week.  That has never happened for any show I’ve been reviewing before, not even in the hectic flurry of the Fall TV season.  I bring this up because it illustrates one of Under the Dome‘s biggest failures: it has never (after the pilot) created any sense that we might be missing something if we skip a week.  There was a still a hope for awhile that the show would come into its own as it matured under its 13-episode mini-series structure — that is, until the news of a second season.  However, in the end, “Let the Games Begin” turned out to be a great example of the series’ high and low points, and almost (almost) created a sense of interest again.  Hit the jump for more.
