4.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant suprise!!! May 8 2004
Format:DVD
Johnny Smith ( Anthony Michael Hall) is an energetic and popular teacher who is engaged to a woman named Sarah (Nicole de Boer)who he has loved his entire life. Unfortunately, Johnny gets into a near fatal car accident that puts him into a coma for 6 years. When Johnny wakes up 6 years after the accident, his life goes through some major changes. The first is that Sarah has moved on with her life and is married to a man named Walt( Chris Bruno)who is the town sheriff. To make matters worse, Sarah was pregnant with Johnny's son that has been raised by Walt, and his son has no idea who Johnny really is. The second and most important change, is that the accident awakened a part of the brain, which is refered to as the "Dead Zone" which allows Johnny to receive visions from the past and the future whenever he touches someone or a physical object related to a particular person. Now as Johnny attempts to begin a new life, he must adjust to his abilities and use them to help those in need.
Up until very recently, I was extremely skeptical about this show for two different reasons. The first and most obvious reason was because Anthony Michael Hall played the lead character. Most people including myself have only seen Anthony play nerdy characters in John Hughes movies, and other roles in unknown "B" films. The second reason why I was always skeptical, was because I figured that there was no way that a weekly television show could be made dealing with the characters from Stephen King's book and the film, because it is a story that is pretty specific and hard to stretch out. However, since the show has received very positive reviews, I decided to put my skepticism aside and give the first season a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Show you're not Watching Feb. 18 2004
Format:DVD
I cannot figure out why this show is not a bigger hit. It's fantastic.
Anthony Michael Hall, (now looking eerily like Steve McQueen instead of Farmer Ted) plays Johnny Smith, a young man who loses six years of his life to a coma after a car crash.
He wakes up to find that his mother is dead, his fiancee is married to another man (who Johnny's son thinks is his father), and that his brain has created a new path to consciousness, leading his thoughts through what his neurologist describes as "the dead zone". This new path gives him psychic visions, of the past, the future, and the present.
This could have been a very episodic show...mystery happens, Johnny has vision that solves it, blah blah blah. Instead, the writers and producers give us a fascinating drama, where Johnny and his ex-finacee try to sort out their feelings for each other, where Johnny is alone in a world that not only doesn't have a place for him, but doesn't trust him.
There are not always happy endings. Most of the episodes are bittersweet, at best. But watching Anthony Michael Hall and an excellent supporting cast try to deal with the fallout from Johnny's tragedy and unwanted notoriety makes this one of the most compelling dramas you'll see.
Throw in David Ogden Stiers as the "is he good or bad" Reverend Purdy, and Sean Patrick Flanery as the "definitely bad but will the world know in time" Greg Stillson, and you have enough intrigue to keep you going episode after episode.
Especially if you are a fan of shows that deal in some way with the occult, like Buffy r Angel, you'll love this one!
Spooky (at times very much so), funny, sad, utterly engrossing. Please watch The Dead Zone...it's definitely worth your time.
(And yes, it is based on the Stephen King novel, so some characters and situations are familiar...but many aren't.)

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic first 2 episodes Feb. 1 2004
Format:DVD
I not a fan of the series for many reasons...I think they should have made a new movie instead of a tv show. The movie would basically be the first two episodes of this tv series. There isn't much to add to the story, considering the show has no direction to it(what's the motivation of the story? What is the point of it?). The Dead Zone 1983 older movie with Christopher Walken(he plays creepy characters) in it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either, so forget the movie and stick with the tv show instead.
The cast was well picked out, there is so much depth to the characters. Anthony Michael Hall is just amazing as Johnny, he makes his character so natural and human (awesome acting!).
I especially like the first episode when Johnny experiences his doctor past and helps him find his mother. It was amazing how that one scene where by touching the doctors uncle he is able to see the insanity and the emotions of the villagers as they are fleeing the village(when they pause). Or when the doc goes back and reunites with his mother he thought was dead(I cried, it was so sweet and touching). See the first two episodes, they are beautiful and I doubt I even gave you a glimpse of how good it is.
Brilliant first two episodes. Well directed, with amazing cinamatography =)

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.
