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. If you can't do both, do you stop a plane from crashing and taking untold lives, or attempt to save one young girl?Read more ›
Personally i wish there were more quality shows on TV like Early Edition it was kinda of depressing when it went off the air and appeared on the PAX/I channel only to disappear again. Good Grief.
Highly Recommended Series For Families.
Update: This First Season Of Early Edition is wonderfully excellent. I love the packaging of set the way it was done on 6 discs with 4 episodes on each of them and the sound is great. Yes folks it's like you remember music and all, this one is a must get and to have in your TV DVD collection.
A NOTE TO CBS EXECS: Please don't jip or screw over the Early Edition fans when you released Season Two or any of the other Seasons coming up, like you did with the poor Fugitive Fans on Season Two Vol.1 and remove anything critical stuff like music/scenes.Read more ›
To start, the premise is extremely interesting and original: a Chicago man, Gary Hobson, holds the future in his hand: he mysteriously receives tomorrow's newpaper a day early. He must make many moral decisions as to how he is going to use the paper - for his advantange, or for other peoples' advantage. Of course, for those who really appreciate Kyle Chandler's boyish, innocent looks, we already know he's a good guy in this.
Every episode involves stories in the newspaper, mostly tragic, that Gary must try to fix or prevent. However, such is life, where one thing is often connected to another, be it people or events, and situations are not always what they seem. Many episodes take us through exciting twists and turns, and before we know it, a 40-minute episode is sadly over.
What I love about "Early Edition" is its tremendous heart. I never cry when I watch television and most movies, but I think this show wins in making me tear up with gladness in more than several episodes throughout its four-year run, especially during the first season. Episodes like "The Choice," where Gary must decide who to save from death, "Gun," which shows the devestating effects of a broken-up family, "Hoops," and "Faith," where a young girl helps Gary reevaluate the kind of faith he puts in his paper, are uplifting and helps us believe in a world that still has hope and goodness in it.Read more ›
