Though it reins in some of the first season's absurdity and shows potential for improvement, Under the Dome's second season still feels like a ride with no closure.

I couldn't be happier that this show is back.

Odd enough, I'm actually looking forward to the next episode. I just hope that by the end of this summer, the secret behind the dome will finally be answered.

King delivered in more than one instance in "Heads Will Roll."

I'm definitely curious to see where all this is headed moving forward, and though I hope the show doesn't overstay its welcome, I do think the new plotlines and characters have promise.

As disappointing as the finale was, the follow up was a mixed bag. I am intrigued by the new characters, reveals and see potential for season 2. The main issues I had with the episode had to do with the mess left from last season.

Under the Dome has assuredly stepped back into its place as one of the most frustrating and dim-witted shows on television.

July 1, 2014 Full Review Source: ScreenRant

Under the Dome is definitely going for a new "no one is safe" vibe. Though it would help of any of the characters who were no longer safe were characters I actually care about.

The way certain skeptics feel about climate change is the way I feel about the dome -- and everything under it. I just don't buy Under the Dome on any level. I think the story is a shambles and the concept is dumb.

Fans of Dome, and there are many, have never expected the acting to reach award-level, largely because of the dialogue, and hey, a lot of times it's more entertaining that way.

For those who hung in, and may be considering heading back Under, there are glimmers of hope for season two.

Poor, silly Dome has been breeding like a drunken rabbit. Does anyone else have an itchy trigger finger yet?

June 27, 2014 Full Review Source: Newsday

At least it's not a lame reality show or a procedural rerun.

Ultimately, the premiere -- while moving along briskly enough -- doesn't add much of anything to the audience's understanding of the show's fundamental mystery.
