This is the first two episodes of the television series. They originally aired as two separate episodes, part two ("What It Seems") airing the week after part one ("Wheel of Fortune"). They were edited together into one movie for the DVD release and subsequent television airings. The movie eliminates episode titles whatsoever and is just called The Dead Zone. In the original episodic television airings of the second half of the movie, also known as "What It Seems", it included the show's normal opening credits and theme song. See more »
Johnny's hair changes back and forth throughout the movie as a result of re-shoots that were done a year after the original shoot. See more »
This is an excellent, first rate series and way better than the original in my opinion. Anthony Michael Hall is utterly perfect as Johnny. He has that certain something that gives his character great intensity and warmth. I'm not the biggest TV fan anymore but with this show, I am totally on the edge of my seat. Take another look at Anthony Michael Hall, he is superb.
Great cast, great directing, great plots...this is what good entertainment should be about. I highly recommend it to all.
