** The idea of a dome suddenly appearing over a city pops up in 1965, with Creator/CliffordSimak's ''All Flesh is Grass'', and in 1988, with Robert [=McCammon=]'s ''Stinger'', so it's hardly a ripoff, but truly a trope: DomedHometown.

* SeasonalRot: Oh, it went downhill ''fast''. The most popular online reviews of the series are entirely comedic, and ''nobody'' seems to know why it keeps getting renewed.

* {{Narm}}: Junior's dead mother, Mrs. Rennie, has a studio full of terrible paintings that viewers are supposed to take seriously. As one reviewer put it, a drunk baby could do better.

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: A common criticism against the book and series is that Creator/StephenKing merely ripped off ''TheSimpsons [[TheMovie Movie]]'' when Stephen King claims to have never even seen the movie. In actuality, [[OlderThanTheyThink stories about domed cities have been told for decades]] and Stephen King had originally come up with the idea in 1976. If those people leveling the accusation had bothered to actually read the book, they'd realize that it really isn't anything like the film anyway.

* UnfortunateImplications: The science teacher tells Big Jim there isn't enough food. Given that she's already shown WellIntentionedExtremist behavior, it strongly suggests that she wants him not to try and come up with a sensible rationing scheme, but to emulate [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Kodos Kodos the Executioner]] in some sort of mass population reduction. (essentially verified as of Season 2 Episode 3)
