Storyline

What would you do if tomorrow's paper came to your door today? If you knew that you were going to die? Be lucky in love unlucky in life? That's what Gary Hobson has to ask himself every day. Gary Hobson is a stockbroker that got fired from his job and his wife found him uninteresting and kicked him out. You see it's quite simple. Everyday an orange cat comes to his door with the paper (a Chicago Sun Times). Gary doesn't know where it comes from. He did a bit of research and found out that a man named Lucis Snow, was an old typesetter and he had the paper before Gary. The day after Snow died, the paper came to Gary. Gary has two friends. Chuck Fishman, who has been best buds with Gary since college. Chuck wants Gary to give him the scores of games, winning lotto numbers, stocks, or even soap opera tips. Marrisa is Gary's blind friend who helps Gary make all the right choices. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Chuck Fishman: [voice over] It's easy to be cynical. Especially today, when it looks like all our heroes are crooks, our role models frauds. Every now and again, however, when you least expect it, the real thing comes along: someone who can find the heart inside the cynic and give those who hold nothing sacred something to believe in. It's not always easy telling the good from the bad, even if you do get tomorrow's paper today. Why, is why. Sometimes, to find the answers, you have to look in your heart.

I always look forward to watching this show.
8 November 2000 | by atwellSee all my reviews

Early edition is a very feel good show. If you don't try to analyze every part of the plot, but rather just sit back and watch,you can't help but to enjoy it. Some super hero shows really are hard to watch, with their bad acting,and poor scripts. But this show is just the opposite,it is very good. When it is over you will get a great feeling,in knowing that there are probably people out there every day who though they might not be super heros they still do super kind deeds that go unnoticed except by the lives of the people that they touch.That is what I get out of watching this fine tv show
