Question about "The Dead Zone"...

I purchased season 1 this last June (as did many of you). I was wondering if anyone had any word on the possible release of Season 2 (which aired last January) and then the short run they had this last summer...

I think they're targeting a summer release for the show. Nothing has been announced at this time, and I don't believe anything has been officially scheduled either.

I thought Lions Gate did a great job with the first season. I hadn't seen the show before and I really, really enjoyed it.

Same here. Bought it sight unseen and was pleasantly surprised. Shame I couldn't get the original pilot though. I live in Europe and my dvd-shop couldn't help me out. So I thought I'd be smart and got it on eBay. Turned out to be the same pilot that was in the box, only this time it was a 90 min feature. Doh!

What do you mean short run, by the way? Was it cancelled?

It's not exactly the same as they have a slightly different supporting cast and a number of scene and line changes. Too bad the commentary on the pilot was out of sync.

Tony,

I think Kai is talking about the single disc release that came out before the entire season set. This was the first 2 episodes that are on the season set, and not the disc that you mail away for.

Kai,

They aired a few new episodes in the summer, which is what
Jonny meant by the "short run."

Gord is correct.

They had six episodes last summer (if I recall the number correctly) and referred to it as the "Summer of Fun" -- or something like that.

The decision to film those episodes came from USA at the last minute. There were some fun episodes...including one where Johnny Smith faced a tornado...and the other called "The Hunt" that was known as "the missing episode" of "The Dead Zone" since it had been put on the shelf since it dealed with using Johnny's abilities to help hunt down a terrorist.

I was just wondering if they would include those episodes in a season 2 set...

What's with the aspect ratio of the broadcast? I recorded some broadcast episodes in "Letterboxed" with black bars, sometimes not. Sometimes the opening credits have a different ratio? Anyone know whats going on with this?

Jonny: There were actually 7 episodes that aired over the summer. They are part of season two even though they aired later on. So when the eventual S2 set comes out they will be in there making S2 a total of 19 episodes. Posted Image

Kai Zas,

I ended up with two original pilot discs (They sent me one and then about a week later another arrived. Not sure why) if you would like my extra copy I can send it to you free of charge.

Here are the complete specs we posted last week:

Earlier today we received word from Lions Gate that The Dead Zone: Season 2 will be released next March. They sent over the following information; we'll post the artwork to the site when we get it.

Johnny Smith's life was interrupted by a near fatal car crash that left him in a deep coma for six years. When he regained consciousness he discovered that he now possesses amazing psychic powers; powers that allow him to see into the life of anyone he touches. Those powers affect his life and the lives of those around him including the love of his life, her current husband, the local townsfolk and a rising politician who may be on a collision course with a dark destiny. Starring Anthony Michael Hall, Nicole DeBoer, Chris Bruno, John L. Adams, Sean Patrick Flanery and David Ogden Stiers.

Late coming in I guess but how is this series and it's DVD release? I have read the Stephen Book it's based on (LOVED IT) and was only half pleased by the Movie by the same name with Christopher Walken.

What is this series like? Adaptation spread over years or simply "inspired by" and nothing like it aside from a guy who can "see the future".

What are the DVD releases like? Can I just pick up season box set and be ok. What is this single disk pilot mentioned in another post? Is it NOT available on the box set? Do I need to buy season one AND look for a pilot episode release?

Thanks for you help guys.

Rolando: The Series in my opinion is better than the movie although i do like the movie aswell. You can just pick up the season one set and it will be complete with the pilot and all. The pilot you can send away for or buy seperately is the same thing as the one that comes in the set, except it has different actors in a couple of roles.

The series is inspired by the book. It is indeed just about a guy that has visions when he touches stuff. That doesn't matter though, considering the writing is realy, realy good.

Main creative force behind it is Michael Piller, of Star Trek fame, together with his son.
