  • A great show that will amaze even those who hate sci-fi.

    9.9
    Based on the Stephen King novel by the same name, this show has managed to surpass the novel in both plot, character, and drama. What is absolutely astounding is how they have managed to take a situation (psychic powers) and make it believable without pushing the envelop too far. Unlike other shows, the writers limit themselves (and Johnny's powers). This creates better writing because they are not able use Johnny's powers to magically save the day, as has occurred on other shows with similar themes.

    Anthony Michael Hall has come along way from his role as the nerd in the 80s Brat Pack. Few actors could manage the challenging role of Johnny Smith. The other members of the cast are also remarkable, but Hall is truly amazing.
