    Yes, there are sheriffs that provide local law enforcement services. But I note that -- for example, since this is one I'm familiar with -- while West Hollywood is policed by the Los Angeles County sheriff's department, the deputies don't have "West Hollywood Sheriff's Department" uniform patches. In "Under the Dome," there are "Chester's Mill Sheriff's Department" uniform patches.

    He did kind of miss a golden opportunity.

    Maybe the township of Chester's Mill is located in the county of Chester's Mill? :D

    I was glad to see Rachelle Lefevre's flowing locks on the screen again.

    So while everybody complains about the portrayal of the sheriff department, I was wondering why the town councilman's (Big Jim's) vehicle apparently had (a bad knock-off of) Vermont license plates on it.

    I think in one of the wide shots of Chester's Mills at the end there was a water tower pictured. Perhaps they are running off of that for now.

    On second thought, maybe what I saw was the antenna for the radio station...

    I doubt I continue to make comparison to the book for future episodes but some of the changes were so strange to me they caught me off guard this first episode. Either one of two things will happen.

    1. I will learn to accept the changes and just watch the show.
    2. I will just give up and stop watching the show.

    Either way I will probably stop making comparisons.

    I think this show is really different from GoT--that show was so hard to follow--especially the first season. People were always trying to figure out who was who or whatever and book readers would give us info, but then hard to draw the line between helpful info and spoilers. I don't think it will be much of a problem here after the first comments this week about differences.

    Isn't it possible that the town is so small it doesn't have a PD? That's how the town that I grew up on was. We only had the county Sherifs dept.

    I'm a big King fan, read everything he wrote after I read my mother's copy of the shining. I stopped reading his stuff after Insomnia. My favorites would be The Stand and It.

    I'm enjoying the Dome sofar. We get the crazy pretty boy, the power struggle of the car salesman and the sheriff, the rugged "Barbie" man....Killer?, and the supernatural or super science Dome with people falling over mumbling something about the stars. Yea, I'm hooked.

    I think we get spoiled by big production shows like Game of Thrones, and Dexter, but Free TV still has some stuff worth watching.

    The man in Black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed. S. King.

    I turned on CC and the 2 people who fell out and started to mumble are saying:

    "the pink stars are falling.....the pink stars are falling in line"

    New York City is in New York County, Bronx County, Richmond County, Queens County and Kings County.

    And Baltimore is next to but not part of Baltimore County.

    And if your son tells you the shelter you built is flooded, isn't the first thing you do is take a look at it?
