The 4400

I had given up watching “The 4400” this summer. It was going on and on and on for years now, and it was pretty clear that the producers was making it up on the way. So, I DVR’ed most episodes and watched them only when I had nothing better to do — like tonight.

I am starting to get back to the storyline, and it’s now becoming good, it’s becoming more philosophical. The two sides that are at war are no innocent. From one side we have the idealistic religious proponents who want to become higher beings at any cost to the society, and on the other we have the kind of phobic people who would do anything to get what they want for their own purposes and no one else’s. And this is an interesting concept for a TV series. While as a viewer you are usually asked to take sides, with the 4400 you don’t know which side to pick. They both have their good points, and they are both evil at the same time, stopping at nothing.

On other TV news, check this “Lost” theory. One of the best around.

The German TV station Pro7 dropped off “The 4400” after four episodes of season 2. The same happened to “Jericho” after 14 episodes of season 1. Morons.

The number of characters that would come and go in the 4400… always frustrated me. The first season had a really cool formula with the NTAC agents investigating a new “problem” ability each week but the need to always make the audience go “Wow… didn’t see that one coming…” each and every week. Makes it feel very disjointed as intense storylines just end abruptly in light of these new developments… that… happen every week. But… at least its better than most crap. Did you see Chuck? THAT’s gonna be a great show. I think.

I hope. 🙂

Did you see the season end? Watched it last night. Pretty damn cool. 🙂 Hope it doesn’t end here.
