Three seasons into it, The Dead Zone has cemented its stature as one of television's most ambitious and compelling series, combining action, psychological drama, and elements of sci-fi and the supernatural. Based on Stephen King's 1979 novel (later a feature film starring Christopher Walken), The Dead Zone was adapted for TV by Michael and Shawn Piller, with actor Anthony Michael Hall (previously best known for his roles in the mid-'80s hits The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles) as star, co-producer, and occasional director. Hall ably plays Johnny Smith, who has recovered from a six-year coma to discover that he now has some rather remarkable powers; merely by touching other people, or objects touched by others, Smith has visions that illuminate events that have happened, will happen, or that are taking place elsewhere. He has put this ability to use as a psychic, working with the police in the Maine town in which the stories take place.

Understanding all of this may take a while for the uninitiated; not only does Smith jump both forward and back in time, but he often sees himself in his visions, and sometimes we're watching the Johnny of the present with the one from the past onscreen at the same time. The Dead Zone has a lot on its hands in each episode, with a stand-alone storyline (a Rep. Gary Condit-Chandra Levy takeoff in "Finding Rachel," a Columbine-esque school shooting in "Cycle of Violence") balancing the ongoing matter of Smith's visions--how they came to be ("Collision" details the car accident that led to his coma and, eventually, his powers), how to interpret them, and whether they're a blessing or a curse. All of that is mixed together with his strange new personal life (his pregnant fiancé, played by Nicole De Boer, married the local sheriff while Johnny was out of commission). And then there's the overriding series theme, which is heavily featured in the first two episodes of this season but mentioned only occasionally thereafter: Armageddon is coming, Johnny alone lives through it, he might even cause it… and maybe he's the only one who can prevent it. It's a tough act to pull off week after week, but while the show occasionally seems about to collapse under its own weight, it mostly succeeds, albeit without a shred of humour and an ultra-serious, portentous vibe that gets a little tedious. At the very least, The Dead Zone makes for consistently intriguing viewing. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Third series of the American sci-fi serial about a small town science teacher waking after a long coma to find he has psychic powers. Johnny Smith is a contented science teacher in a small town. He's engaged to be married, great at his job, popular and life couldn't be better. An horrific car crash, however, changes his life forever. Johnny is left in a coma that lasts 6 years. When he comes to, he finds that life has moved on and closed around the gap he left. His struggle to fit into life again is complicated by the fact that he's developed psychic powers that let him see into the lives of anyone with whom he comes into physical contact. Episodes comprise: 'Finding Rachel (1)', 'Finding Rachel (2)', 'Collision', 'Cold Hard Truth', 'Total Awareness', 'No Questions Asked', 'Looking Glass', 'Speak Now', 'Cycle of Violence', 'Instinct', 'Shadows' and 'Tipping Point (1)'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dead Zone approaching its peak 20 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen the entire series now and the middles series are definitely the best. I thought it was slow to get going in Season 1 but thereafter the majority of episodes were quirky and spooky. All of the episodes don't reach the same standard but series 3 is very good overall. If you enjoy the supernatural, you should like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars See it to believe it.... 5 July 2005
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This show is so much like coming home because very little changes in the world of Jonny Smith- the love triangle between himself, Sheriff Bannerman and Sarah persists, Bruce remains his ever-present side-kick and moral compass and of course those pesky visions continue to cause him as much personal strife as public reverence.
My anticipation of this 'Dead Zone' Third Season was pretty much off the scale and when it finally appeared on Amazon I was both relieved and elated that yet another 'Dead Zone' DVD Box-set would soon be in my possession and I'd be able to enjoy and treasure another (*fingers crossed)...stylish, unpredictable and engrossing year of this unique television experience charting the on-going adventures of Jonny Smith and the latest aberrations of his by-now legendary supernatural ability.
With this third season it's back to the 12-episode format, so I was definitely disappointed to get fewer stories than the 19 of the second season, but my real disappointment came when I realised that by reducing the number of episodes the producers hadn't increased the quality of the season...
My criticism of the second season was that the Armageddon plotline was unsatisfactorily concluded and my criticism of the double-episode that begins this third season is concerning that same plotline. We're offered yet more visions of the destructive wave sweeping across Washington destroying everything in its path, but the events in the present that will lead to this calamity continue to move at a snails pace, so to some extent it's hard work maintaining an interest in this potentially awesome, but by now too-drawn-out storyline.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Dead Zone - Season 3 4 Sep 2011
By Faustus
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Season Three has a meagre 12 episodes, and half of them are less than interesting. It's a shame as Season Two held such promise for what was to come. It gets good as the Season progresses, and once again the story arc reveals some new revelations about the future, just in time to keep your interest for the next years box-set.
Once more we get NO SPECIAL FEATURES. NONE AT ALL. The R1 release got:
-Commentaries for all 12 episodes
-Deleted Scenes
-Short Film ("Five Minutes 'Til Mitch") Directed by John L. Adams
