Under the Dome is very different from the book. I'm still kind of enjoying it. Watched High School High the other day...part of Fox's ADULTSWIM-lite attempt. Didn't care for it. Taking the Archies concept(and design) and pumping it full of modern day issues is a good idea but the writing just isn't there. Even in a 15 minute cartoon you have to go a little deeper than having a black/jewish character named Blackstein.
