Having watched the first few episodes of season 2, I wondered if 'Early Edition' might be getting too intense. The feel-good factor seemed to be diminishing somewhat and the pace had slowed down. But it soon picked up again, and Fisher Stevems as Gary's friend Chuck Fishman provides some very welcome humour to counter-balance the more serious aspects of each episode. Kyle Chandler's character Gary Hobson has become almost a superman without super powers as he saves one person after another from life-threatening situations, with the help of tomorrow's newspaper.
What is really nice about this show is that you have someone who genuinely cares about people -- someone with a conscience and a sense of decency. That is what makes it so appealing. It is also well-acted, well-written, superbly photographed, and has a marvellously atmospheric music score. In short, I cannot praise it enough.
Those who are familiar with the 1953 movie 'Roman Holiday' starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn may see some similarities in the episode entitled 'Romancing The Throne'. There are also references to 'Rear Window' ( 1954 ) in the episode 'Where Or When'.
Can't wait for Season 3!

By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Mar. 2012
I remember this series with profound nostalgia and had enjoyed it very much when it was on our screens. It is good that we can now have it available on dvd and can revisit this great series. The series revolved around the character of Gary Robson(Kyle Chandler)who received a copy of the next days paper hence the title "early edition" and sets about making things right before they happen, thus avoiding the bad news in early edition. There is a mysterious cat involved as well as his blind assistance whose's ESP is off the charts. The story-lines were crisp and very engaging.

We all have the ability to see the future or get a sensing of what might happen before it happens through the right use of our intuitive perception. It is not a gift limited to a few as in early edition. The question is if you know what will happen tomorrow what will you do? More importantly is why are we permitted the knowledge of future events?. I think it is the deeper appreciation of the supernatural dimension of this series that got most of us into watching it. A very good series I recommend.

A Cool Show Returns ! 17 May 2009
By Bobby Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Early Edition was one of the most interesting and entertaining hours on television during its run and after picking up season one, it's nice to see the second season of this fabulous show coming out. The characters were likable, and all too human at times, making them even more likable. Kyle Chandler proved the perfect choice as a regular guy with foibles who at first tries to cash in like any of us would on his good fortune, then realizes the great responsibility which has been laid at his door, quite literally.

Gary Hobson (Kyle Chandler) has been kicked out by his wife and forced to find a hotel. A yellow cat accompanies a newspaper which Gary eventually discovers is quite special. It is tomorrow's news today, and day after day it is delivered to Gary's door. He reacts as most of us would at first but his good nature finally takes over and he realizes there is a reason he's been chosen to receive the paper.

What followed each week was fabulous. One week it was humorous and the next heartbreaking. Shanesia Williams was terrific as his blind pal Marissa, who tried to keep him grounded and lead him towards the right path when the direction seemed unclear. Fisher Stevens was perfectly cast as his pal Chuck, who wanted to take advantage of Gary's windfall but often ended up helping him instead because deep down he was a good guy. It was sort of like Rockford and Angel, just less pronounced. At least in season one.

What helped to make the show special was the Chicago atmosphere and some tightly written shows about delicate choices made from the heart, some of which had grave consequences. The moral dilemmas continued, as in Quality of Mercy. In this episode, Gary saves someone, only to read the "next" paper, and discover that person is now going to kill someone innocent. There was always so much day to day slice of life humor in this show that you bonded with the characters in a way we don't anymore. The drama was human also, particularly so in The Medal, where a Vietnam Vet is racked with guilt.

The affection the writers had for classic movies came across to a great degree in season two. In Romancing the Throne, a Princess from Morania takes a break from her duties with Gary and helps save a couple of lives. It is obviously an homage to Roman Holiday. Where or When takes a page from Hitchcock's Rear Window, as Gary is laid up with a broken leg, and becomes tangled up with what may be a 50 year old murder just across the way. A Bris is Just a Bris is an obvious nod to A Kiss is Just a Kiss from Casablanca, even if the amusing story-line where Chuck starts telling the truth (gulp) and Gary gets tangled up with a klutzy librarian have little in common with the classic film. Anyone who's seen In Old Chicago with Tyrone Power and Alice faye will enjoy Hot Time in the Old Town, in which Gary wakes up two days before the great Chicago fire after a bump on the head!

The show's characters and their interactions had a very real feel and each show had its share of fine moments. Often mixed with humor, but sometimes quite poignant in the end, each week was special. From late September of 1997 to late May of 1998 fans of this show relished the hour spent each week with Gary and his pals.

Season two episodes include: Home--The Medal--The Wedding--Jenny Sloan--Down Sized--Angels and Devils--Redfellas--March in Time--A Regular Joe--A Bris is Just a Bris--A Minor Miracle--Romancing the Throne--Walk, Don't Run--Return of Crumb--Mum's the Word--When and Where--The Fourth Carpathian--The Quality of Mercy--Show Me the Monet--Don't Walk Away Renee-Hot Time in the Old Town--Second Sight

Having purchased season one for someone I love I'm glad season two is now on its way. Early Edition truly stands out as something of quality. Gary and his friends, and that mysterious yellow cat, were welcome visitors each week and this is another fantastic release for the show's many fans.

Thanks for Season 2 - just two more to go 17 May 2009
By M. Larsen - Published on Amazon.com

This season is arguably better than Season One in the sense that the characters have been established and the writers were able to focus more on the episodes without having to worry about backgrounds, the "how" and "why" of the paper, etc. But as many after me will probably say, all four seasons were excellent and we're looking forward to the last two seasons being released in the coming year or so.

Early Edition is a very entertaining show. You don't have to wonder if there will be anything offensive in the show. I own Seasons 1 & 2 and hope that seasons 3 & 4 will be available on DVD soon.
