Thanks Ms. Mod for helping get this topic added!

I have to admit, with some of the hits and (many) misses in the movie and TV versions of the SK Universe, I loved this show. They took a chance on an alternate universe version of what Johnny could have been, and it worked for me.

What are your memories and highlights from this show ... even lowlights, all memories are welcome! (I'm talking about you, "A Very Dead Zone Christmas"). Just no deadlights, OK?

Oh my god this is sooooo funny. I am just watching this show, still on season 1 and so far loving it. I did find the first 3 episodes a bit longish, but that's because I had read the book not to long before. But I am glad they put in the wheel of fourtine, that they missed In the movie

It's been a long time since I watched it and I don't remember too many individual episodes except for the two-part pilot, which was probably the highlight for me. Other than that my memory is pretty spotty, I remember an episode where Richard Lewis was a shock-jock, an episode where Johnny used his powers to cheat at poker and an episode that was suspiciously similar to the movie Cliffhanger. Mostly I remember being irritated by the cancellation, it wasn't my favorite show but I was invested in it and was interested to see how this version was going to play out.
