Editorial Reviews

This is an hour-long drama about Chicago native Gary Hobson who becomes a reluctant hero when his morning newspaper reports tomorrow’s headlines. Commodities trader Gary Hobson (Kyle Chandler) is losing it: his job, his home and his brilliant attorney wife. He thinks he may even be losing his mind when tomorrow’s newspaper mysteriously arrives today – giving him a disconcerting look into the future. What will he do with tomorrow’s news? While his best friend Chuck (Fisher Stevens) sees the newspaper as a ticket to personal gain, co-worker Marissa (Shanesia Davis) convinces Gary that the “early edition” should be used to better peoples’ lives. So each day Gary begins anew the struggle to make sense of a world turned upside-down by the changing course of events that come from reading the “early edition.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cool Show Returns ! May 17, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks for Season 2 - just two more to go May 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stop teasing us ... July 20, 2012
Verified Purchase
I love this show! I hope CBS decides to produce DVD sets of the last 2 seasons! It is irksome to have to wait so long to complete my set! If there are no plans to release this show traditionally, they should consider making it available MOD! For a company that claims to put their shows on a pedestal this is hardly a shining example! To give credit where it's due though, CBS does the best job of transferring their shows to dvd! Check out the DVD box sets of the original Mission Impossible, Hawaii 5-0, and Mannix! They all look incredible!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best TV shows ever June 17, 2011
I didn't get to see all of the episodes of Early Edition when it was aired on CBS TV starting in 1996, but loved the premise of getting tomorrow's newspaper to help people. What a great show to exemplify how people should behave- Love one another unconditionally and try to help others. Kyle Chandler is a very likeable, average, good-looking, easy going guy with two good friends, one with a conscience and one without which makes for the perfect dynamic and knowing that tomorrow's news is within reach and could help with financial issues. But the lesson is that the paper isn't coming for personal gain. Excellent lesson. Great acting, great stories, great characters. Wish this show was still running. It should've made at least 10 years. I look forward to the release of seasons 3 and 4.
