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

Goofs

A shot used throughout the series is of an accelerated sunrise behind the Chicago skyline, as seen from the lake shore. It has to be a sunset played in reverse, because the shoreline runs roughly north-south, with Lake Michigan to the east. Sunrise is normally over the lake. See more »

I Loved This Show...
7 August 2004 | by Ginger87See all my reviews

"Early Edition" had to be one of the best shows ever made. It tells the story of a man who gets tomorrow's newspaper today. It had such a clever plot and I had nothing to complain about it except that it was canceled. Every episode was interesting and kept me glued to the T.V.

My favorite episode was the one that Gary goes back in time to the Chicago Fire. I also liked the first episode, the episode that started it all. I also really enjoyed the episode when the paper and the cat disappear. ( I love that cat). That episode was very interesting.

I hope one day they bring this show back with new episodes. As for now I watch the reruns of it on PAX. I give this show 10/10 stars.
