I'm a huge fan of the Dead Zone and tape every episode and will buy the 2nd season if and when it comes out on DVD. BUT DO NOT BE FOOLED ABOUT THE "UNAIRED ORIGINAL PILOT EPISODE" that you can get with the bounce back coupon ($$$ for shipping). It was aired on TV and is the very first episode on the first DVD called "Wheel of Fortune". I ordered it and got it in the mail today and was looking forward to seeing an episode that I had never seen before. WRONG! I was very disappointed when I found that it was the "Wheel of Fortune" on the DVD compliation that I already bought. So, don't waste your money on the allegedly unaired original pilot episode--because if you bought the Complete First Season of the Dead Zone, you already have it.

I came late to this TV show. It premiered when I had too many distractions to allow me to sit down and actually watch it. Thank God for DVD. "The Dead Zone" shows stylistic flair and has strong writing throughout much of its first season. The basic premise remains from King's novel and David Cronenberg's film; Johnny (Anthony Michael Hall) a school teacher who seemingly has everything going for him is in a car accident. He's in a coma for six years. While he's away his love (the lovely Nicole deBoer from "Deep Space Nine")has married someone else, his mother has died and he has the ability to foresee the potential future (and the past). The departures from the source that Michael and Shawn Piller ("Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine") introduce add depth and conflict to the show. When Johnny's mom dies, Reverend Purdy (David Ogden Stiers)becomes the benefactor of the will and guardian of Johnny. Johnny doesn't trust Purdy believing his intention was to soak his mom for all the money he could. Johnny comes out of his coma with his gift stronger than before. He had it in childhood and throughout much of his life but it was never more than a parlor trick. Now it's front and center in his life.

The pilot episode is still among the best but there's also a handful of the 13 episodes here that rank right up there. "Destiny" and "The Seige" both are among the best episodes of the first season as well. Lion's Gate has done a exceptional job with the DVD transfer. The colors are bright, vivid and there's hardly a trace of digital or analog imperfections that might mar the picture. The sound, likewise, is top flight.

The Dead Zone is one of the best shows on TV. The show alone gets five stars. But the reason my review is four stars is because of the somewhat deceiving nature of this DVD release. When you buy the DVD set, there is one open slot with no DVD. This is for the "pilot" episode. And in order to get this episode, you have to send in a card that comes with your DVD. It would have been much better if they had simply included the DVD and saved the consumer trouble of sending in a card to get the pilot. It's just like those "rebate" offers - companies know that few people will go through the process of sending it in and that's why they offer it.

The Dead Zone is definetly one of the best T.V shows around nowadays (what with the demise of 'X-Files')and has finally given me something to do on monday nights.
The basic plotline is the same as in the movie; Johnny Smith (played superbly by Anthony Michael Hall) is in a terrifying car crash which leaves him in a coma for six years. He awakens to find everything has changed and he now possesses the power of second sight, thus cueing a series of situations where he must use his psychic powers to help people.
Everything about the series has a refreshing feel about it (especially some of the camera work and special effects) and all the lead carachters are perfectly cast (Anthony Michael Hall beats Christopher Walken hands down). Also, unlike most of the crap on nowadays, the stories actually rely upon and develop these carachters with emotion being the driving force rather than, say, kung-fu fighting (as in Dark Angel).
As for the first season itself, it has some great storylines and plot ideas (the pilot and final episode are especially good). The only trouble is that some of these episoides are a little slow, especially the really early ones. Compared to what the series is doing now (season two was phenomenal!), this can be quite aggravating.
Overall, i would say this is certainley a good buy, but leave some cash for the release of season two, as that season is just about perfect.

Of all of Stephen King's novels "The Dead Zone" is probably the one has the strongest potential for being turned into a television series, mainly on the strength of the character of Johnny Smith. Many years after being adapted into a theatrical film, in which I thought Christopher Walken was miscast as Johnny, we have a television series based on King's novel, starring Anthony Michael Hall, that finally gives us something to replace "Quantum Leap" and "Morning Edition" among cult television fans.
Created by the father and son team of Michael and Shawn Piller, there are several significant changes and additions to "The Dead Zone" premise: (1) The night of his accident Johnny and his fiancée Sara (Nicole de Boer) conceived a child, so when Johnny comes out of his coma this time, he learns more shocking news than Sara being married. (2) Sara is now married to Sheriff Walt Bannerman (Chris Buno), another character from the original novel, who is now given a more prominent role. (3) Johnny now has a sidekick in Bruce Lewis (John L. Adams), who starts off as his physical therapist and becomes a confidant, true-believer, and good friend. (4) In this version Johnny's father died when he was young and his mother (Anna Hagen), now a wealthy woman, died while he was in the coma. The bulk of her state has gone to the Reverend Gene Purdy (David Ogden Stiers), who has used it to fund his religious organization. This plays off of Vera Smith's fundamentalist beliefs in the novel, but gives the whole idea of the spiritual significance of Johnny's "gift" to the Reverend. (5) The other key supporting character is reporter Dana Bright (Kristen Dalton), who not only becomes a true believer but is interested in Johnny romantically as well.
