When I discovered that CBS had adapted “Under the Dome” as a 13 episode 
series, whose finale aired last Monday night, I was eager to watch it 
not only as a long-time King fan but as an ecosocialist anxious to see 
how what some regarded as a parable on the environmental crisis would 
play out. Although I had not read the novel, I assumed that with King 
serving as executive producer it would ensure that the TV series would 
remain faithful to the novel. But only after watching the finale, a 
dreary conclusion to an altogether dreary series, did I begin to 
consider the possibility that King’s intentions would be subverted by 
another big-name executive producer: Stephen Spielberg as well as the 
show’s major creative force, one Brian K. Vaughan.
