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?

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.

I watched more, and firing the episode where he got kidnaped kind of dumb. But got a kick out of the fan mal room. I am not trusting reverend Purdy. I think he is tiring Johnny into a sideshow and a way to make money

There is no hesitation, when a film of a particular category well defined is successful, it is not useful to be burdened with conventional considerations or intellectual remarks. Only the staging, the scenario, the actors and the soundtrack, Here we are not in absolute masterpieces like '' Madame de '' to name only one. Those there compete at the top of the seventh art. There because of the gente, the level is different, which does not prevent to reach the excellence while finding there essential topics favorable to the reflections of common sense like that to kill Hitler child or to ask the question on the interest of innate gifts concerning the search for happiness. Dead Zone is a great success that only cinema can offer because it is exciting from start to finish, Cronenberg has a great range of sensitivity and he could have if he wanted to play more ... His modesty towards the feelings is remarkable. Only a few slight caveats, his immoderate taste for gore and his aversion to bullies, liars and drug addicts to money. Those are caricatures.
