Format: DVD
I took a risk and purchased this dvd boxset having never before seen even a single episode, but WOW how it paid off! This is television at its best- every episode is completely gripping and looks as though it has a budget comparable to that of a movie (i.e. with matrix style camera tricks).
While the concept of a central character with a paranormal advantage over others isn't much of a blindingly-original a theme, this is very much above the average. Though the key to its success, despite its many original qualities has to be the central performance by Antony Michael Hall- he's just perfectly cast as Jonny Smith, a guy who manipulates events in the present to avert disaster in the future for himself, his loved ones and complete strangers using the part of his brain aptly named 'the Dead Zone'.
The first 3 episodes are fantastic and while the season never quite lives up to this brilliant introduction, it does take us places we never expect with great writing and beautiful performances. My favourite episode is 'Shaman' (reminded me of a star trek: next gen. episode, but actually surpasses that in every way), 'Dinner with Dana' is the episode where very little happens action-wise, but which somehow manages to be effortlessly engaging, and 'Enemy Mind' would be the poorest because it's a little predictable (which is something you can very rarely say with the Dead Zone). It's moving, addictive and classy television, snap it up guys!

The part of the brain that for us fails to function is for John Smith very much alive - following the car crash that left him in a six year coma. This is a gift he would prefer not to have - images forever flashing of past events or forthcoming possible tragedies, he now regarded as either a freak or saviour.

Here is a wonderful premise for a series. Season 1 proves a little uneven, but most of the episodes work a treat. The start is strong as John begins to realize the extent of his powers. Amongst the best episodes? The young ice hockey player in danger of a heart attack. The truth about the death of John's mother as he lay unconscious. Jury Service - much owed here to "Twelve Angry Men", John in the Henry Fonda role. The bank hold-up, John frantically trying to avert a whole string of ghastly scenarios. Shades of Salem in "the town that time forgot", John facing burning for witchcraft. My favourite was where he had contact with a Native American shaman of many centuries ago - an asteroid is about to strike, the tribe needing to evacuate if hundreds of thousands of descendants are to be saved.

Yes, there is much to admire. Perhaps some may regret one of the characters who tends to irritate, her prominence in one episode the season's least happy spot. There is an appealing central performance. We leave John aware that an ambitious politician is destined to cause a nuclear catastrophe. A cliffhanger indeed, causing me at once to order Season 2.

No extras - which is ironic, considering.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a tv series remake of the classic 80's film The Dead Zone based on the novel by Stephen King. Following the basic plot of the film and novel, it sees teacher Johnny Smith involved in a car crash and in a coma for 6 years. When he wakes up, his girlfriend is married to another man and he's lost his job and has scary, accurate visions of the past and future and uses these gifts to help people and help the police solve crimes. While the first 2 episodes follow the plot of the film and novel with a few minor differences and a couple of new characters, the series goes off on its own direction after episode 3 and going back to the plot of the film and novel for the explosive finale. This is gripping tense tv. Anthony Michael Hall is excellent as Johnny Smith taking over from Christopher Walken who played him in the film.

Dead Zone is based on the Stephen King book, which became a series, about a normal, regular type high school teacher who is engaged to his childhood sweetheart -- until he's involved in a terrible car accident, and he winds up in a coma for 6 years.
When he wakes up, he slowly discovers he has this amazine power -- visions -- in which he can see the past, future, or hidden present just by touching someone, or something they have touched
THE DEAD ZONE IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST, MOST INTELLIGENT, WELL-WRITTEN, WELL-ACTED, AND WELL-DIRECTED TV SHOW THAT HAS BEEN ON FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER
you'll either hate it or like me you would love it

The fact that Steven King takes drugs while writing is painfully obvious when you read some of his works, however his basic ideas make for great films and TV series. The Dead Zone is no exception.

Anthony Micheal Hall is no longer the geeky adolescent he was in The Breakfast Club and plays Johnny Smith so well one could believe the part was written for him.

Season 1 is by far the best of the 6 (Before the Stillson stuff that never seems to get going). Each episode puts Johnny in a new situation and has the viewers on the edge of their seat from start to finish.

Highly recommended for lazy days in front of the TV or an evening in with friends or loved ones.
