The Battle of The Domes



It was awhile ago, but before the TV show aired this summer, The Simpsons Movie did an “Under The Dome” story line based on the bestselling Stephen King novel.  With Under the Dome becoming one of the few summer TV hits, we thought it would be fun to see just how it stacks up against the comedy veteran.


The Simpsons Movie:


In true Simpsons fashion, the creators of the movie took a few creative liberties and made the reason of the dome a result of Homer’s pollution inducing actions. It had apparently gotten so bad that the EPA had quarantine the whole town due to environmental issues. The actions that ensued were comedic gold. Our favorite moments include Grandpa Abe Simpson’s church meltdown where he screamed “Epa! Epa! Epa!”and the addition of the unforgettable Spider Pig, who even got his own theme song.

You know it: “Spider Pig, Spider Pig, does whatever a Spider Pig does.”

Fortunately for Springfield, there was a sinkhole in the sandbox that lead to the city’s eventual escape, so far the community in the TV show, haven’t been quite so lucky.


“Under the Dome” TV Show


If nothing else, the show has the actual writer involved in the making, meaning that it will at least be true to the original material. The show is wildly popular at the moment, that while is focused on the characters, doesn’t disappoint on some really great special effects. We loved the opening scene of when the dome first came down on the town of Chester Mills and all the chaos that ensued in those first moments.


The TV show takes the source material very seriously and has a lot of more suspense and mystery, as of now, we have no idea why Chester Mills was stuck with the dome of doom.


Overall, it depends on what kind of entertainment you want, whether it’s comedy or suspense. The TV show is exceptionally done, there is no doubt about that, but we’ll always have a special place in our hearts for Homer Simpson and when he quite literally gets stuck between a rock and a hard place.
