The Fifth Season of "The Dead Zone" works better without Greg Stillson June 9 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I rewatched the fifth season of "The Dead Zone" from start to finish on DVD (bonus points for this set coming out right before the start of the sixth season) I also happened to be working my way through "The X-Files," watching one episode a night right before bed (I am up to Season 7 at this point). While watching "The X-Files" I had discovered that I really did not care as much about the so-called "mythology" episodes as I did the various weird cases that Mulder and Scully had to deal with that never involved aliens, black oil, or whatever. As I watched "The Dead Zone: The Complete Fifth Season" I found myself having a similar reaction to Greg Stillson every time he showed up in an episode.

Everybody who read Stephen King's novel "The Dead Zone" (loved it) or saw the theatrical movie (thought it was miscast) knows that the final confrontation with Greg Stillson is what costs Johnny Smith his life. Johnny knows from one of his magic touches that Stillson's fledgling political career will end up with him as President, at which point he will cause a nuclear war. The conflict in the novel was all about Johnny finding out that he could change the future for the better and then trying to come to terms with whether or not he had the moral authority to do so. Well, in the television series Johnny came to that decision a long time ago and while it was obvious that the television series had to be about a whole lot more than Stillson, I now have the feeling that this is all going to end just like the book/movie with both of them dead. Okay, maybe Johnny will get out this alive, but I am becoming more and more convinced that the situation will not be resolved until the final episode.

This season begins with Stillson engaged to Miranda Ellis ("Forbidden Fruit"), which resolves the previous season's cliffhanger in unspectacular fashion, and he pops up again as part of a government committee investigating Johnny's actions at a Waco-like disaster involving a religious cult ("Vortex"), and then in the final episode as events take him closer to the White House ("The Hunting Party"). But five seasons down the road, it is hard to care anymore. There is a major development in this whole plotline in that it is not just a combination of Stillson's charisma and a reactionary political climate that will make him president but also the machinations of the Janus Group. I can do without the whole conspiracy bit, but they now become another element for Johnny to deal with from now on.

It is also another reason that I like the episodes that have nothing to do with either Stillson or Janus. "Independence Day" shows what Johnny can do stuck in a traffic jam on the highway, ends up as the inside man on a robbery ("The Inside Man"), and infiltrates a cult compound ("Vortex"). Those last two are interesting because they touch on the religious implications of Johnny's gift much more than they usually do on the show. "Symmetry," in which Johnny experiences visions from multiple perspectives, shows that the writers can still come up with interesting twists on the basic premise of Johnny's powers. I was much less enamored with the idea that Gene Purdy has any secrets left when it comes to Johnny ("Revelations"), but having the Collector back for another go round worked out pretty well ("Into the Heart of Darkness"), except for what it says about convenient gaps in Johnny's knowledge that allow for such a sequel to take place.

Another reason I wish the show would put Stillson in the rear view mirror is that it seems like some of the cast members are losing interest. There are a whole bunch of episodes missing one of the characters in this season and already in the current season one of them actually dies (albeit, a fate predicted for them in "Cujo") and at least one more appears to have left the show. But then how many times can Bruce ask Johnny what he is going to do about Stillson? On balance, I still like the show, but the last couple of seasons the USA "Characters welcome" promos have been the best part of "The Dead Zone." Co-creators Michael and Shawn Piller, along with actor Anthony Michael Hall and the rest of the cast, have done an admirable job of turning King's novel into a solid television series, but even without psychic powers I have to believe the end is in sight.

surprisingly not very good, unlike previous four seasons June 21 2007
By Beach Books and Music - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I own the dvd sets for all five years of the Dead Zone, and I am a big fan. However, I was really disappointed with this set. First of all there are only 9 episodes (3 dvds x 3 episodes each) as compared to maybe 16 episodes in the other years. Second, is that the stories suddenly quote weak and far fetched. It seemed like the show got better and better from years 1-4. But then suddenly its not believable. Also, there must have been some contract dispute with Sarah Bannerman because she almost never appears in any of the episodes.

Bring on the Apocalypse March 25 2008
By Genevieve Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Season Five of "The Dead Zone" starts well and ends extremely well, but leaves a lot to be desired in the middle. The problem with "The Dead Zone" is that there is only one continuing storyline for the entire series, that of the impending Apocalypse. Most TV series have a different continuing storyline for each season, which holds the viewers interests for that season, but also allows the viewers to have a feeling of closure at the end of the season. "The Dead Zone's" continuing storyline, on the other hand, started in Season one and is still going strong, with the writers only allowing this story to progress by three or four episodes in each season. In this season, there are only two episodes relating to the Apocalypse storyline, and the remaining episodes are just filler (self-contained episodes that don't really lead anywhere). I am now starting to wonder whether we will ever get closure on this storyline or if the series will be cancelled first (I hope not because I really do want to know what happens).

There isn't much else to say about this season. The filler episodes are mediocre; there are few notable guest stars (the only one worth mentioning is Kristen Dalton (Dana), who returns for one episode); and for reasons unknown to me, Nicole DeBoer (Sarah) barely appears. The first and last episodes of this season make it a worthwhile investment, but, at the same time, I am hoping to see improvements in the next season.

A series to watch July 19 2007
By S. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I am not a huge tv fan, but my husband is. He bought the fist season and we watched it, the second-4th and watched then and we HAD to buy the fifth. Even though the premise is the same every episode, they are very interesting to watch. You never know how it will end. I will continue to purchase the rest of the seasons until cable does not produce this show anymore.

Another good season of Dead Zone Sept. 12 2007
By Ji Soo Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I enjoyed this season as much as previous seasons with one minor caveat. I felt the focus on the political antagonist hampered otherwise an interesting collection of events in John Smith's life.
