Johnny, still trying to figure out who, or what, is behind the recent attempt on his life. He has a vision of Walt talking to an old woman who was the nurse looking after Johnny's father when he was institutionalized. When the old woman is killed, Johnny tracks down Reverend Purdy to help him find the answers. These answers lead back to his father, Herb Smith, revealed to be alive and, stricken with Alzheimer's Disease. He's living in a replica of his house beneath a local garden under the guard of the Corporation for a Better America secret society. Stilson is now a part of this society since taking over the Janus' place. Meanwhile, Stilson continues to charm his way with Sarah by offering her a chance to move with him to Washington. While reluctant at first, Sarah begins to see the true side of Stilson. He becomes brutish and arrogant with her, and after J.J. hits his head on the floor, has a vision of the nuclear Armagedden.

Love this series!
27 June 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I've been watching this series for the last few months with my wife and we love it. Not all episodes are great, but most of them are. I couldn't believe that Anthony Michael was the same boy from the Breakfast Club.

The first season started great, the first two episodes were awesome. The following episodes were short movies, had no red line through the season. We get to know the actors and actresses. At the last episode there is made a beginning of a red storyline with Stillson as the cause of a future Armageddon.

I've seen many series to know that the second season has, again, episodes that has no red line. They are short stories about Johnny and his ability. A season without a real story is quite boring, because you really don't give a damn what will happen next. The next episode is just a story on his own.

From the third season this series is getting interesting. The season gets a story. Besides that, every episode is very exciting on his own. When I saw an episode, I wanted to see the next one. I am not a fan of Nicole de Boer, and I'll explain why. This woman had a fiancée, when he was in coma she married an other man, whom she met in the hospital. What was she thinking? In the episode "The cold hard truth" J.J. has a fight at school. Johnny is there with him. Walt is picking J.J. up and leaves the room. They go left. Then Sarah (Nicole) says goodbye to Johnny to leave with Walt and her son. She leaves the room and goes right. Why? Had she found an other exit? Did she have to pee before they would leave? She did not communicate that well with Walt. But besides Nicole, great season.

Then the fourth season starts great with Johnny coming out of surgery, double visions, and then, again, all the episodes are short movies on them own. Where is Dana anyway? Sudden I get the feeling we have said goodbye to this beautiful woman, why again? The fifth season is exciting, this man Janus is very creepy.

Then the last and sixth season is somehow disappointing and exciting and the same time. Disappointing because we have to say goodbye to Walt (why not Sarah?). Bruce went on the background and so did Reverend Purdy. Every episode you ask yourself where the story is, what will happen, how will this season end. And then, at the last episode of the sixth season you get a lot of answers, but at the end I was still left with a lot of questions. What will happen to J.J.? Why did Walt have to die? What will happen to Sarah and Johnny? Probably this all did not matter...

So I go back to the early seasons; Johnny say his friend Bruce die a lot of times, and saved his life. He saw him getting married also. But before Bruce got married, Johnny saw him die again. How can that be possible? If Bruce was going to die, how could he get married after dying? In one episode Dana comes back. And we have to know this is Dana! "Hi Dana, you're the reporter Dana? Bye Dana". We know, she has red hair, of course she is Dana Johnny! Or this guy Roscoe. In the last few episodes we have to know that this guy is called Roscoe, why? He does not have such an important role to play.

Anthony Michael, you're a great actor. Get good roles in good movies, not like Mike Engel in The dark knight, you can do better. Love you as an actor, keep up the good work. We will follow your acting career.
