    Dead Zone Is Awesome

    I loved the pilot and could not wait to see the series. Started watching the show middle of session three. Went back and start from the beginning.

    Dead Zone star dead ringer for ''Steve McQueen''

    Have to admit, only just saw the first episode lastnight.(Feb. 9, 2003, on USA) I've always been a big fan of Steve McQueen, and have always liked Hall. Not only did I enjoy the show, but the likeness Anthony has to McQueen was amazing. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed! Very good choice to use Hall in this series. I really enjoyed the mystery and suspense in it. It keeps you watching to see if you can figure things out on your own. Bravo!!! Looking forward to the shows from here on out.

    Anthony Hall is GREAT!!!

    The show is one of the best TV shows in years. The star is a down to earth, experienced, young actor whom we watched grow up in front of the camera. I recommend the show to everyone who is fascinated by the super natural and out of the ordinary. A must see! I was so excited to run into Mr Hall in a restaurant that I called him by his middle name! I wish I could apologize to him...
