Storyline

What would you do if tomorrow's paper came to your door today? If you knew that you were going to die? Be lucky in love unlucky in life? That's what Gary Hobson has to ask himself every day. Gary Hobson is a stockbroker that got fired from his job and his wife found him uninteresting and kicked him out. You see it's quite simple. Everyday an orange cat comes to his door with the paper (a Chicago Sun Times). Gary doesn't know where it comes from. He did a bit of research and found out that a man named Lucis Snow, was an old typesetter and he had the paper before Gary. The day after Snow died, the paper came to Gary. Gary has two friends. Chuck Fishman, who has been best buds with Gary since college. Chuck wants Gary to give him the scores of games, winning lotto numbers, stocks, or even soap opera tips. Marrisa is Gary's blind friend who helps Gary make all the right choices. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The newspaper used by Gary throughout the series was actually printed by the Chicago Sun-Times for each episode. See more »

Goofs

A shot used throughout the series is of an accelerated sunrise behind the Chicago skyline, as seen from the lake shore. It has to be a sunset played in reverse, because the shoreline runs roughly north-south, with Lake Michigan to the east. Sunrise is normally over the lake. See more »

Brilliant
4 September 2002 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this in 1998, and I'll just say it again. This is brilliant. Trust me, almost anyone who can understand the English language will love this. The concept has been explained a thousand times by other reviewers, so I won't say it here. I will say, that this show is one of the most thought-provoking TV show I've ever seen, without making people feel uncomfortable. Again, you must see this if possible. You will love it.
