Early Edition

My latest science fiction DVD journey back in time is to Early Edition, a 2000 tv series ...

Set in the city of Chicago, Illinois, it follows the adventures of a man who mysteriously receives each Chicago Sun-Times newspaper [Roger Ebert made a cameo appearance in one of the episodes] the day before it is actually published, and who uses this knowledge to prevent terrible events every day .... the series starred actor Kyle Chandler as Gary Hobson, and featured many real Chicago locations over the course of the series' run.

Light entertainment but I like it so far. The main character was the opposite of all the make characters in the series I watched before this, Top of the Lake ... as a homeless guy to whom he gives change says, "You're a nice man." There's a blind character in the show who I found interesting too, and a mysterious cat as well ...

Here's the beginning of the pilot episode ...
