Winter is coming? Alas, not until next year. Nerd HQ thought we would try out a few new shows and see how they are. If we like them, we can continue watching them, if we don't like them, we can find something else to watch...so it's going to be a night of pilots. Let's check out the Stephen Kings mini-series "Under the Dome" and the British Conspiracy thriller "Utopia"
The story follows a small group of people who find themselves in possession of the manuscript sequel of a cult graphic novel called "The Utopia Experiments" which is rumoured to have predicted the worst disasters of the last century. This leads them to be targeted by an organisation known as 'The Network', which they must avoid to survive. Using the manuscript, they must uncover the meaning hidden in its pages before the disasters depicted become reality
Under the Dome Synopsis:
Set in the not too distant future, Under the Dome tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill, who suddenly find themselves cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious, impenetrable barrier that surrounds the town. As the town begins to tear itself apart through panic, a small group of people attempt to maintain peace and order while also trying to uncover the truth behind the barrier and how to escape from it.
This meetup is scheduled to start at 630pm. This will allow time for people to arrive, get settled, order dinner and chat with their fellow geeks. The TV shows will start shortly after 7pm. After the shows, stick around for some general geek chat, boardgames, karaoke, who knows, the night will be young.
