Format: DVD
I'm simply in love with this show. It's hard to believe that with a storyline plot as far fetched as receiving the newspaper a day in advance could be believable but it is! I credit this to the excellent writters and acting on this show. This show really makes you think as well. Since watching it I can't seem to walk by a newspaper stand without wondering what I could have done or changed with the world. Also this show shows you how much of a burden this can be. Another reason I love this show is for all of the morality questions it poses. When two equally bad things are happening at the same time, and when you can only truly be in one place at a time, who do you help? I strongly recommend this show and can't wait for season two :-)

Loved this show! I plan to get myself the first 2 seasons for my birthday. Now that Kyle is in 'Super 8', maybe someone will decide to issue DVDs for the final seasons as well. I'm the only Science Fiction/Fantasy fan in my family, but every Sunday evening the whole family gathered to see what 'The Cat Guy' was up to that week. Kyle and a cat -- you can't lose.

Tomorrow's News Today June 4 2008
By Bobby Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Early Edition was one of the most interesting and entertaining hours on television during its run and it's nice to see this fabulous show finally get released. The characters were likable, and all too human at times, making them even more likable. Kyle Chandler proved the perfect choice as a regular guy with foibles who at first tries to cash in like any of us would on his good fortune, then realizes the great responsibility which has been laid at his door, quite literally.

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? If you fall in love with someone you've saved, and feel that joy of finally finding someone, what do you do if you discover she's destined to reunite with someone from her past? And what do you do when people begin to think it's odd you should show up at so many disasters and such at just the right moment to save someone?

The show's characters and their interactions had a very real feel and each show had its share of fine moments. Often mixed with humor, but sometimes quite poignant in the end, each week was special. One touching episode had Gary debating over whether not to save one life, because it would give a heart for a transplant which would save a young girl. There was always a balance, however, and the show could be touching but never became maudlin. And it could often find quirky humor within some of the dilemmas.

Season one episodes include: Pilot -- The Choice -- Baby -- The Paper -- Thief Swipes Mayor's Dog -- Hoop Dreams -- After Midnight -- Gun -- His Girl Thursday --The Wrong Man -- Christmas -- Frostbit -- Mob Wife -- The Wall, Part I, -- The Wall, Part II -- Bat Masterson -- The Jury -- Psychic -- The Cat -- Phantom at the Opera -- Faith -- Dad -- Love is Blind

Amid all the questionable releases of television shows undeserving, Early Edition truly stands out as something of quality. Gary and his friends, and that mysterious yellow cat, were welcome visitors each week and this is a fantastic release for the show's many fans.

I Hope the Buzz Of Early Is True. Jan. 23 2008
By Brent Hilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I hope all the buzz is true and Gary Hobson (Kyle Chandler) graces the small screen again in this wonderful series created by Bob Brush. The guy that brought you the Wonder Years another classic series. i really dug this series because gary was an average guy doing service for society daily, usually sometimes taken for nut or weird guy, but he got the job done and he was nice plus he had class. i was wishing that it would've gone for a few more seasons when it was airing on TV, but oh well. i do hope that all the music used in the series like both the themes and etc, music rights can be resolved so the music , theme or otherwise can be used, so us fans will not feel jipped/cheated in anyway, when we buy the DVD of this excellent series, only to find out that the music been changed from what we remember from watching on tv for the first time. SO Please don't change the music or edit the series in anyway leave as is CBS.

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. As I stated before Leave as is CBS, if it takes alittle longer to release the second or any other seasons, we the fans we'll understand and will wait, we don't want a shoddy product with music or scenes removed or missing. We want an excellent DVD Release Of Early Edition Seasons Like this First Season Release, which is Excellent, so please Leave, as is CBS. Release the Seasons like we saw them on TV Please. Your doing good so far so don't blow it on the next ones. A Fan.

Welcome Back! April 28 2008
By William A. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I remember when this excellant Show got cancelled. I turned to my TV one Saturday Evening only to be greeted with a Lame Game Show! IMO This was the beginning of TV's Decline, as the years went by more and more Quality TV Shows were taken off the air and replaced with Shoddy "Reality", Game and News Shows. I look forward to seeing this fine show once again, this time without all those Inturruptions that have INFESTED Modern TV Programming!

Early Thoughts on "Early Edition" July 23 2008
By Blue Coronet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Never having seen EARLY EDITION, I bought this set based on both the premise and the reviews. Having watched the Pilot last night, I was definitely interested in where the series would go. While the pilot was good, the second episode "The Choice" was amazing -- very well written, moving, and for the life of me I couldn't see where it was headed. I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the episodes on this set. One reviewer mentioned WONDERFALLS and though very different, these two are also similar in a positive way. See them both.

A First-Rate, High Quality Show Aug. 23 2008
By Grace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I watched this show when it was first on the air, and after watching it again on DVD for the first time in years, I was struck by how well it still holds up in this decade. In fact, if this show was airing right now, I honestly think it would be the best show on television.

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. Sounds cliche, but I'll take a show that celebrates the goodness in people over ones that seem to take joy in showing heartache and violence as a result of the evil people do.

Other episodes such as "His Girl Thursday," "The Wall 1+2," "Psychic," "Phantom at the Opera," and "Love is Blind" are exciting and at times very intense mysteries that showcase the classic "Early Edition" comedy and engaging story lines. Kyle Chandler as the bumbling, kind-hearted, and adorable Gary Hobson, as well as Fisher Stevens (as best buddy Chuck) and Shanesia Davis (as blind friend Marissa), make "Early Edition" one of my favorite series for its high quality stories, humor, performances, and heart-felt messages.
