Dead Zone 5
Review: They're watching you, in Recap.
Now this is more like it. It's edgy, cynical and scary as Johnny finds himself hunted through phone and close-circuit camera by ruthless security men.
Johnny's visions vs creepy modern technology is an unnerving ride. The show's charm and creepiness is back - aided by astonishing special effects.
The slight shame is this episode builds and builds layer on layer of paranoia and psychic suspicion and then... ends. With a little fizzle.
We touch on exciting moments from the season opener (Johnny's trust fund being embezzled, and corrupt government plotting), but these are almost asides to a plot that's a much better way of telling the story of Terminator III. Only, as we said, it just runs out.
Note: This episode features characters called Gibson and Pynchon, both surnames of American alternative culture writers.
