Under the Dome TV Show

I have been watching a new show called Under the Dome that is based on an old Steven King book. The premise is a bit far fetched (mysterious impenetrable dome closes off a town from the outside world), but it does have some interesting insights into what happens when an area gets cut off from outside help. Fights over resources (water thus far), fiat currency quickly becoming useless (propane and batteries seem to become the new currency), and looting (water, food, and medicine) quickly sprout up. Has anyone else seen the show?

I see the commercials for it on tv from time to time (but I don't watch much tv). I'm kinda alarmed at the reality tv aspect of reality.
