| Really wanted to like this show
This show started out with promise. The SFX are good enough to be believable. The concept is interesting. (as a side-note, I have not read the book).

The problem is with the script, the characters, and the believability of the character interactions.

At least in the first few episodes, the lack of utter pandemonium significantly hurts show. Additionally, why are folks so easily able to quiet and address the masses. The crowds are far too manageable; far too docile.

Worse than this though, are none of the characters being likable. After five episodes, I just don't care about any of the characters. The front runners on the likability scale are Bushy and his engineer, Dodee. Considering they're peripheral characters, this is not enough. Barbie is next on likability. At least he has a modicum of depth and conflict. My wife and I now hope that they all die in the dome. The world would be a better place.

The show has become like a scab that you keep picking at. I'd like to know what ends up happening yet I'm becoming increasingly unwilling to stay on the ride to see.
