I'm a huge SK fan. I have all of his books and have read many of them more than once. Yeah most of his endings leave a lot to be desired but I think he writes like the Brothers Grimm, it's the story itself that's important not the happily ever after part. That being said the book ending to Under the Dome was quite stupid. I think where he gets in trouble is that he's writing away and suddenly realizes that he has a page limit on his stories so he has to hurriedly wrap them up.
The first episode of Under the Dome will have me watching the next. I knew that CBS wouldn't want necrophilia in this episode and am not surprised with the direction that was taken.
Will probably watch the entire miniseries or as long as it airs.
