A show for everyone from 5 to 500, 5 January 2001
Author: Konstantinos Dafalias from Linz/Austria

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.
