Deputy Linda (Natalie Martinez) and her fiance, Rusty (Josh Carter), are separated by a massive transparent dome that suddenly descends on the town of Chester's Mill in 'Under The Dome'.
Gripping science fiction drama, Under The Dome, is set to trap viewers’ attention.
WE’RE all guilty of it. Growing up as children, there’s nothing like spotting a trail of ants and inflicting all kinds of torment on them to pass time.
We send powerful gusts of wind (which usually ends up leaving us out of breath), suffocate them in piles of dirt and let’s not forget another crucial method of torture: flipping an empty glass jar over them.
Oh, how we wish we hadn’t.
In Under The Dome – a 13-episode science fiction drama based on Stephen King’s 2009 novel of the same name – a transparent, impenetrable dome mysteriously descends upon the residents of Chester’s Mill, Maine, in the United States (much like that empty glass jar), cutting them off from loved ones, from food and water supplies, from all mediums of communication, and ultimately, the rest of the world.
Like those poor six-legged creatures, the townspeople are left afraid and confused. Where did the dome come from? Who is behind it? And most importantly, what are their intentions?
Actor Mike Vogel – who prefers to see the dome as a fishbowl – believes the show, at its core, is simply a way to examine human behaviour.
“You put a bunch of fish in a fishbowl and they start banging on the glass – and you see how they react,” said the hunky 34-year-old star.
“You will have a fish that runs away, you will have a fish that starts fighting another fish and eats that fish. And then you will have other fishes that protect the fishes that are about to get eaten.”
Vogel, along with co-stars Dean Norris and Alexander Koch, were fielding questions from international journalists at a press conference for the US hit series at Los Angeles, California.
“The dome is just a device. It’s a device to see what happens when you put people in a pressure cooker situation,” he added.
