The Dead Zone Season 4
The 4th season os USA Networks hit series “The Dead Zone” has been released in an impressive set by Lionsgate DVD. For those not familiar with the series, Anthony Michael Hall stars as John Smith, a teacher who emerges from a six-year coma to find that not only has the life he knew moved on, but he know how the ability to see the future by touching a person or an object.
Based on the Stephen King book of the same name, the series follows various challenges that John encounters from helping to solve cases, save lives, and deal with his complicated social dynamic.
As if this is not enough trouble for one man, John is also troubled by constant visions that a corrupt and rising politician named Greg Stillson (Sean Patrick Flanery), will lead the world to Armageddon.
The Armageddon subplot is the constant story throughout the series but is visited only a few times during the season.
For me the 4th season was not as crisp as the three seasons prior as aside from the Stillson episodes, many seemed to be lacking and not up to the standards set previously, that being said, there is still plenty of entertainment, and the recently aired 5th season showed that the series is back on track and moving ahead with a full head of steam
