  • A good season opener

    9.8
    This was a different episode then we are used to on the Dead Zone. It was well planned and written and the plot was darker then normal. I liked the whole religious nut story and how he kept playing with Johnny by leaving clues behind. This reminded more of a Millennium episode then of the Dead Zone. Overall it was a good episode, although we were told very little about Stillson and the end of the world story, i have a feeling it will be a long time before that plot will ever be revealed to us. Anyway so far this season proves to be very strong and prehaps better then the first season.moreless

    • Originally the episode was to begin with a "documentary" detailing Johnny's rise to fame, narrated by Jonathan Frakes and featuring the fan guy from "Unreasonable Doubt", and bringing new viewers up to speed. It was dropped in the interests of time but some of the footage is to appear in subsequent episodes.
