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
The newspaper used by Gary throughout the series was actually printed by the Chicago Sun-Times for each episode. See more »
Throughout mainly the first season, it can be seen that the headlines do not match the columns themselves. See more »

What is this, huh? I come in down here to turn off one lousy circuit breaker, the next thing I know I'm in 1929. There's gangsters running around. They're trying to kill me. And don't think I don't know you're involved in this! I tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna turn this lamp off, do you hear me? I'm gonna turn this lamp off and when I turn it back on, I want to be in my own time. Do we understand each other?"

The German title of Early Edition is "Alone Against The Future" which would imply a science fiction show. I was disappointed when I found out that it wasn't - for about 30 seconds. Then it caught me and never released me again. Every single episode is brilliant, Kyle Chandler portrays Gary beautifully and very believably, the plots are smart, humourous and thrilling. It is fascinating (and often funny) to see how creative Gary is in solving his daily "Save Chickago" tasks. After watching I always have learned a principle, I feel entertained, my faith in the good im man is strengthened and I am eager to watch the next episode. Parents, this is the show You can have Your children watch instead of all this Pokemon crap.
