The Dead Zone

(3 votes)

The Dead Zone tv seriesJohnny Smith has been leading an idyllic small-town life. Employed as a science teacher, Johnny takes great pleasure in showing his young students the wonders of the natural world. He is also newly-engaged to a loving fiancee named Sarah, a fellow teacher he's known since childhood, and is a good son to his widowed mother, who lives nearby. Johnny's life is nearly perfect - until the day his life is interrupted by a near-fatal car crash that leaves him in a deep coma.

Six years later, Johnny finally regains consciousness and discovers that life as he once knew it has completely changed. His mother has passed away, and Sarah has gone on to marry someone else - and now has a son. But Johnny himself is also not the same person he once was: he now finds himself in possession of amazing psychic powers which allow him to see into the lives of anyone he touches. Now, as Johnny attempts to reacquaint himself with a life he has been away from for six long years, he must also begin a quest to come to terms with his new abilities - abilities that may turn out to be both a blessing and a curse. Helping Johnny make a fresh start are his physical trainer Bruce, who also becomes a close friend; his mother's priest, Gene Purdy, who sets up a trust fund for Johnny but may not be looking out for Johnny's best interests; and Sarah, who must find a way to make Johnny a part of her life again without risking her relationship with her husband and son.

Johnny Smith had the perfect life. Until he was in coma for six years. When he awoke, he found his fiance married to another man. His son doesn't know who he is. Everything's changed. Including Johnny. One touch, he can see things. Things that have happened. Things that will happen. You should see what he sees.

Trivia

Michael Moriarty was originally cast in the role of Reverend Eugene 'Gene' Purdy.

The cane that Johnny uses throughout the series is the same one used by Stu Redman in "Stand, The" (1994) (mini)and Andre Linoge in "Storm of the Century" (1999) (mini), just with a different head.

In the episode "Dead Men Tell No Tales", the casino logo is the same picture as the drum and wall painting in "Shaman".

Anthony Michael Hall is the only actor to appear in every episode.

Started originally as a pilot for a series to be shown on the UPN network in the fall of 2001. When UPN decided not to run it, the USA Network picked it up.

The show's creator, Michael Piller, also co-created "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993), of which Nicole de Boer was also a cast member.

John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
