Show Summary

Gary Hobson was a regular Chicago stockbroker. One day his wife dumped him and he was forced to move into a hotel room. The next morning, at 6:30 am, a mysterious yellow cat showed up at his front door with tomorrow's edition of the Chicago Sun-Times. From that day on his life was never the same. At first skeptical, Gary started to try saving people's lives and stop disasters from happening. With the help of his friends Chuck and Marissa, Gary became a man with a mission, even though he doesn't know why or how the paper gets to him every morning.

Early Edition was produced by CBS Productions and TriStar Television for CBS.

      "Early Edition" is one of my all time favorite shows. I can watch it over and over again. It is like a comfort food to my soul and leaves you with a good feeling. The acting by Kyle Chandler aka Gary Hobson and Shanesia Davis aka Marissa Clark were amazing. In fact all the cast were great. I am still a fan of Kyle and Marissa. In fact, I ran a fan website for years and now have two Kyle Chandler Fan Clubs on Facebook and a Shanesia Davis Fan site on facebook as well. Shanesia is doing mostly theatre now. Of course Kyle has been in a few series since "EE" and numerous movies since. But, can't help going back to "Early Edition". I just love it.moreless
    • Early bird catches the worm... or in this case, Early cat catches the newspaper!

      What would you do if suddenly you had the chance of receiving tomorrow's newspaper today? Would you bet on the lottery and try to become rich, or would you try to help people from getting hurt? I would ahve gone with the first choice, but not Gary Hobson... when a mysterious cat starts deliviring him next day's paper, he tries his best to stop disasters from happening and saving people's lives. With the help of his friends Chuck and Marissa, Gay does the mpossible to save the day.

      I was quite impressed when I saw this series for the first time, because it was quite original. Every episode managed to be different, even though it followed the same formula. One of the tings that I always loved about it was Chuck's ever lasting attempt to get money by using the newspaper, and then not being able to do it, because Sary would not let him read it; and of course, the cat... the cat always meowed when he arrived with the newspaper.

      The cast was very good, and it was one of those series that should have kept going for a couple of more years. Still four seasons is better than none, right? A 9.5 is what this one deserves.moreless
    • An excellent show in the anthology and reluctant hero traditions of "Route 66" that also flirts with the science-fiction elements of "The Twilight Zone."

      What is unusual (and excellent) about this show is that while it is largely formulaic, with most episodes following an established pattern, each episode manages to be unique and interesting. Some, such as "Romancing the Throne," adapt the plots of existing stories, in that case the film "Roman Holiday." Most episodes, however, create original plots within the established structure of the show.

      While that sounds far from unique and interesting, it's the superior and genuine acting of Kyle Chandler that makes this show (and this episode) fresh and engaging. That its premise allows for a new and different challenge each week also separates it from the banal. Such is the beauty of an anthology series like "Early Edition": the format enables writers to compose a cohesive show while presenting varied plots to the viewers.moreless
    • Quality show.

      I really wish this show was still on. It was almost always entertaining. I liked the entire premise of the show and I found many aspects interesting. The basic premise of the character Gary Hobson finding tomorrow's newspaper today was a great and original concept. I liked watching him try to prevent the event from happening and also seeing the characters he would encounter. I liked the characters and also the storylines and the plots. The acting was good and fit well with the setting. Overall, this was a great show and I wish it was still on television today. Thank you.moreless
    • Favorite show of all time...

      This show was seriously my favorite show on tv in 2002..although the show stop airing in 2000... I used to watch it everyday and every epidsode was soo greatt!

      The show was set in Chicago, Illinois, and it was about the adventures of a man (Kyle Chandler) as Gary Hobson who mysteriously receives each Chicago Sun-Times newspaper the day before it is actually published, and who uses this knowledge to prevent terrible events each day. I really hope they will make a new show based on the same thing , becsuse its really interesting, and i hope Kyle Chandler would be in it because he is really a great actor.moreless
