  • Dead Zone ...or the Date Zone?!!

    Ok, so Johnny has used his powers for the benefit of mankind. But in this episode he starts using his visions for Dating!

    Is this the Dead Zone, ...or the Date Zone?!!

    I guess after all this time helping others, he's now decided to help himself!

    At least there is more to his vision than just a cheap rendezvous. However, it does seem fitting that Dana's last full time episode would have a plot about illicit affairs.

    Although ironic that this was probably the only episode in which Dana's character wasn't annoying, and actually seemed to contribute towards a minimal amount of helping.

    But all ends well.

    For us audience anyway, as it's a relief that Johnny's dating visions go unfulfilled and Johnny stays put.

    ...instead of moving to Melrose Place!!!moreless
  • To be honest, best one this season!

    To be honest, This episode was the best one this season!

    No sara, No JJ, Bruce is back in this one, and Dana is back aswell,, Always good to see them in the show... .... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... I really loved this episode, I felt kinda sad in the end when he didnt get the girl, but I loved how they did this one.. Deja vu ROCKS man..

    The girl fit the part, I love how by the end of it John was like sick of the whole thing and wanted to get it over with..

    Nice onE!!!moreless
  • Very show sort of ground-hog day type story.

    I didn't think that much of this episode. It was very unoriginal and little thought had gone into the planning of this episode. Most of the episodes this season have been very strong and entertaining nut this episode failed to kep me 'hooked'. With only a few more episodes left this season i hope the writers focus more on the important long running questions. This episode rrally focussed around Johnny trying to save a womans life at a bar, but every time he saved her something goes wrong. Similar episodes to this have already been made they need some new and fresh approach to some of the stories. But other than that i didn't mind this episode too much, still looking forwards to the next one.moreless
  • Well not exactly but i thought this episoide was very simlar to bank robbery one in season 1.

    Have they done this episoide before, what i mean, is the episoide was very simlar to the bank episode everytime Jonny does something , something else happend, i really like the episode, u got to love last 2 visions they were very good. it's strange when jonny vision always end up with him dying but somehow they don't come true, he has died so many times in his vision, he has more then 9 lives.

    Stepale, now i really liked that twist, i was wondering why gun-man wanted her dead but 3 from last vision help me, i didn't see that coming. i loved jonny punch him in the next vision and i liked how Jonny explained all the times he saved her. i guessing most people would reconise actress from 24 season 2, she is definatly a hottie. i felt so bad for jonny,he vested so much intrest in her and he come away with nothing.

    It wasn't a brillant episode but it definatly very watchablemoreless
