The Net meets The Dead Zone
4 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm new to posting on databases and I'm not sure how much plot discussion is considered spoiler and how much spoiling is too much spoiling so I'm just going to spoil vaguely and check the spoilbox to keep things safe. There just needs to be someone giving props to my favorite show on IMDb, so here I go beginning with this episode as I embark on watching every show from the 3rd season starting now. So, this was a fun 42 minutes of a cat and mouse plot. Johnny meets some people who are similar yet different to him and their interactions come together nicely. Of course, seeing that the girl who plays Bonnie Gibson is also in an almost-porn flick makes her good acting more enjoyable and hot to watch. The conspiracy thesis plausibility of this episode doesn't seem possible really, but maybe in 20 years, who knows. The episode entertained and had me gripped, wanting more. Maybe these characters will show up again. Unfortunately, us DZ fans are getting used to new characters that grace us with their stories once, never to show up again. But I am used to that now and therefore found enjoyment from "Total Awareness."
