Barely ridiculous but funny
29 November 2007 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of The dead zone, but a friend has lent me the first two seasons and i think it's worth seeing. In the first season the writers take so much from previous ideas,- like season 1 episode 5 is a free adaptation of Twelve angry men - but in the second one they have worked better the stories. They have left, temporarily, the apocalyptic and serious vision from the Stephen King's book and Cronenberg's movie, and they've became a little bit metaphysical, and comical. I mind it's not a bad way to extend the series, to find new plots, but sometimes they brush the blush -i'm not going to reveal which episodes, but people who has seen the previous seventeen episodes sure understand which ones i'm referring. I've liked so much this episode, cause is paradigm of the line that the series has taken. A thrilling plot that is barely ridiculous in its development, but that finally became funny, and even mystic. If you haven't seen The dead zone yet, give it a chance. You are not going mad for it, but sure you'll not regret.
