Early Edition - The First Season


About Early Edition

The following may contain SPOILER information!

Early Edition, starring Kyle Chandler as Gary Hobson and Shanesia Davis-Williams as Marissa Clark, is about a man who gets tomorrow's edition of the Chicago Sun-Times delivered to his doorstep a day early. Mysteriously arriving with a cat, the paper gives Gary an opportunity to prevent needless tragedies and to generally make life in Chicago a little more pleasant.

The first two seasons also starred the fabulous Fisher Stevens as Chuck Fishman, Gary's best friend, who would have loved getting his own "early edition" of the paper so he could use it to make lots of money. Chuck left at the end of the second season to start a family-friendly production company in Hollywood.

Three new characters arrived on the scene in the third season: Billie Worley as Patrick Quinn, the winsome bartender; Kristy Swanson as Erica Paget, single mother and bar manager with a romantic interest in Hobson; and Myles Jeffrey as Henry Paget, precocious child of Erica. At the end of the third season, Erica and Henry left Chicago to return home to her parents and try to live a more stable lifestyle. Patrick left after the first part of the fourth season, moving to Oregon to become a kindergarten teacher.

Recurring characters are Constance Marie as Detective Toni Brigatti; Tess Harper as Lois Hobson, Gary's mom; William Devane as Bernie Hobson, Gary's dad; Ron Dean as the retired Detective Marion "Zeke" Crumb; Michael Whaley as Detective Paul Armstrong, and Luis Antonio-Ramos as Miguel Diaz, photo-journalist for the Sun-Times.

No, I'm not Kyle Chandler. No, I don't have anything to do with Kyle Chandler, nor with Early Edition, other than being a fan of the show.

Very Important Fact Number 3:

Before sending me e-mail, be sure to check out the Early Edition F.A.Q. to see if your question has already been asked and answered. (If you ask me something that's answered in the F.A.Q., please don't be emotionally wounded and insulted if I reply with just a link to the F.A.Q.)

If you do send me email, use an appropriate subject line. I've very quick to mark unknown messages as spam!

Very Important Fact Number 4:

Okay, doesn't anybody make a good freebie counter anymore? Sheesh! Well, the last official counts are below, if you really want to know. I haven't checked the numbers lately, so I no longer have any clue how many people have visited this website. Oh well... /sigh/

Counter included approx 8800 hits from 02/12/1998 to 07/1999, prior to moving to current site.... Visitor 10,000 arrived on 08/31/1999, visitor 20,000 on 04/04/2000, visitor 30,000 on 07/06/2000, 40,000 on 08/30/2000, 50,000 on 11/15/2000, and 60,000 on 02/06/2001. I know, "big whoop" you say, right? I like to know these things, but the rest of you can just ignore it. Counter set at 66,173 when moved to hispeed.com on 06/28/2001. 7/21/01: Ok, the counter is flaking out on me, so I'm putting on one from beseen.com instead, starting at 66,200. /sigh/

04/02/2006: Well, almost five years later, and I'm just now noticing that the beseen counter has, apparently, gone poof. Ha! See, this is how much I care about stats! Oh well. Just for funzies, here's one from statcounter.com, that I'll start as of today with a big old zero:
