The "nowness" struck me as well. I laughed a the Tiger Woods references.
, for me, is still a great adventure, as is The Dark Tower
series. Unrelated people coming together from different places and/or time. Both are big sweeping works with hope playing a very big part.
Under the Dome
, for me was claustrophobic and really hopeless until the end, which was a bit too simple. BTW, the end reminded me of similar Twilight Zone and Star Trek episodes.
