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

During the fourth season, W.G. Snuffy Walden's main title theme was replaced with "Time Has Come Today" by the The Chambers Brothers, though Walden continued to get credit. 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 »

The Best!
25 January 2001 | by (Mirage) – See all my reviews

A very solid tv programme about a guy named Gary Hobson who gets tomorrow's newspaper today. I liked watching it every week , but now it doesn't come on anymore which is very disappointing and sad. I liked many episodes especially "Run Gary, Run" and "Time". It was a great tv show and I wish they made way more episodes. Probably the best thing that came on tv.
