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.

I love shows that are different - is it a bit of fantasy sure - that's why I watch tv to get away from the real life we live day to day

just enjoy the fun of this show

HASH(0xa0426d8c) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa0426fd8) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa0426f9c) out of 5 stars 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!

HASH(0xa042a594) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa042a348) out of 5 stars High quality "feel good" series Nov. 14 2008
By Rhianna Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After watching too many Stargate episodes, murder mysteries, and spy movies it was a relief to watch a TV series where people weren't dying left and right or constantly in mortal danger. Although action is exciting, watching so many people get hurt or killed makes me heartsick. Early Edition, a TV show about a man named Gary who got tomorrow's newspaper every morning, was a TV show with depth, an intelligent plot, character development, and impeccable acting. Gary's knowledge of the future leads him on many goose chases and puts him in hilarious situations. I was immediately caught up in Gary's struggles to accept the paper and figure out how to save everyone. As I watched the series I thought that the premise of knowing the future and saving lives would get old, but it did not. The screen writers were very creative and put unexpected twists in every episode. (Personally, I despise predictable plotlines) Not only were the stories captivating, but the acting was delightful. Kyle Chandler is the perfect actor to portray a man who isn't quite comfortable with being a goody two shoes. His best friend Chuck is the comic relief whose constant attempts to use the paper to get money kept me laughing the whole way. His other friend Marissa is a sweet reminder of what Gary's conscience is always telling him.
All in all, an excellent series with delightful dialogue and a smart sense of humor. This is a series that lifts your spirits. It has little swearing and no sex scenes, a great choice for family TV.
