#16 Countdown: The 4400

The 4400

This show is original and refreshing. It created by René Echevarria who is responsible for quality shows such as Medium, Star Trek: DS9, TNG and Dark Angel (not so much on the quality).

What I like about this show is that we know what's going on but do we really? We find out that humans from the past abducted 4,400 humans over a series of years and returned them all at once. Most of them returned changed and with special powers. This folks can heal, can kill, tell the future, have super powers and is apparently helped to come into existence by a doctor played none other than Jeffrey Combs.

There is a cult-like center for all of "The Returnees". There was a leader named Jordan Collier. He was killed for whatever reason only to be replaced with an identical guy. Whatever. Another thing that puzzles me is that this Collier guy's body disappearing at the funeral and no one has mentioned it again. There is an evil-but-not-really baby. She ruptured the spleen of her half- sister, killed some guys and she can't walk or talk yet.
-OH! back to the cult. It seems so scientology like.

This show has a lot of promise and it hasn't really disappointed yet. There's no excuse for this show to run out of material. It has 4400 stories to tell. Even if the show gets cancelled. They can't ever run out of stories.

4400... Isn't that a biblical reference?
