    As near as I can tell, on the early (first) broadcast of Dead Zone tonight, they repeated one segment and skipped another. I'm recording the second showing later tonight, in hope that they get it right.

    Do we discuss the show in this thread? It has the show and date in teh title...

    I thought it was a good episode. I liked what they are doing with the Walt flashbacks, and following that storyline instead of just the FotW type plot.

    Discussing the show in this thread would be evil, since the whole point is that we haven't been able to watch all of it yet...

    Man, USA's really screwed up their shows as of late. There was a week or two where none of their programs had anything but the generic guide data.

    Did they get it right on the second showing? I'm set up to get the midnight (cst) showing. I hope it's ok.

    This was the episode titled "Ambush" correct?

    Dead Zone is one program I have no idea when it originally airs or which airing I actually record into the TiVo.

    Looking at my ToDo list, I see some recording Sunday evenings, some early Monday mornings, more in the middle of the night Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

    The "Ambush" I recorded was 8pm MDT Sunday evening, was this the "first" airing?

    I'm picking up the late Tuesday airing of "Ambush" just to make sure.

    The second showing was OK.

    The 9:00 Central was the bad one, so Phox, you will need another showing.

    Well, it's not like they don't have episodes where the same scene repeats over and over. ;)

    I thought that there was a thread here saying that no one was left watching Dead Zone anymore. Were there some who do watch but didn't respond? I have deleted the SP for Flash Gordon, but I still have this one.

    At the end, we got to see some flashbacks to the old plotline. That was a bit refreshing. Sarah cannot be gone, especially not gone to Stillson--I FORBID IT! She's gonna freak when she fins out about her son.

    I'm beginning to like this sheriff. I'm glad she wasn't killed, which is kinda what I was expecting.

    I really loved the Abe Lincoln line. And Johnny reminding her of when she didn't want his help.

    Yeah, the first showing was flawed. The second act was replayed after the act 2 to act 3 commercial break. They fixed it for the second, and I assume all future, showings.

    Forgot to add:

    I get a smile on my face when a major network has a mess up like this.

    Just a small local station here.
    Once upon a time we aired the first segment of Oprah twice,
    aired the last segment of Entertainment Tonight before the first segment,
    aired a week old CBS Evening News for about 30 seconds before switching to the correct one,
    to name a few miscues.

    Both Oprah and ET were middle of the night re-airings so no one noticed, and the person responsible for the CBS Evening News mis-air was quite quick on the hotpunch finger, only got one call on that one.

    Hi all,
    I didn't really absorb what Rob said when I read the beginning of this thread yesterday. I tried watching the first airing of "Ambush" and realized that something was out of whack and remembered Rob's topic.

    Here's where it gets weird!

    I decided to re-record another showing and the moment I choose the record-this-episode-also (sorry, can't remember what it's really called) button, my DirecTiVo reboots. I tried again a few moments later and it did it again.

    I'm trying a torrent of the episode as I type this.

    I don't think I've ever seen DirecTiVo behavior like that before.

    When your TiVo came to, did it start having strange visions of the future?

    "I had the perfect TiVo... until it was in a coma for 6 years. Now it sees things. Shows that haven't aired yet. Shows that might not air...."
