Storyline

Johnny Smith is a high school teacher in love with Sarah Bracknell, a music teacher at the same school. But Johnny is smashed up in a horrendous car accident and slips into a coma that lasts for six years. When he awakens, Sarah has married another man, while his once-latent psychic powers come to flower. He now has visions that reveal things from both the past and the future. And this puts him in the path of a serial killer. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

In the scene where they discovered the body at the windmill, Johnny and Bruce walk past a police car with its roof emergency lights on. When the scene switches to a different camera, the emergency lights of the police car are off. See more »

First rate thriller-suspense!
14 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

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.
