My husband and I just started watching the 4400 and we are addicted! We ended up watching the whole first season in one day because it was so interesting and creative. It is very similar to Heroes but we think it's better. We are currently on season 3 and are still not bored with the show because it is not predictable. For those of you that do not know what this show is about, I will give you a quick idea. People are abducted from different years (1914-1997) and then one day in the 1997 they are returned to Earth, of course there are 4400 of them. The story takes you through some of the characters lives. The government gets involved and some like the 4400 and some want them killed. I don't want to give away too much of the show, but if you like Heroes, then you will definately like this show. I know a lot of people were turned off by Heroes after their first season, but seriously, if you enjoyed Heroes' first season, then give this show a try. I'll mentioned three characters to get you a bit more hooked. There's a young girl who was the first abductee meaning from 1914 and she has the power to see the future. There's a boy in his teens who has the power to heal. Then there's a man from the 50s who was a the only black pilot and he falls in love with Lily, another 4400, who is pregnant but no one knows where the baby came from. Tempted to watch...Let me know what you think if you've seen it...

I must admit I was very disappointed with the second season of Heros after the excellent first season although the third season was not too bad. I did watch the first season of the 4400 when it was on TV and it was very enjoyable. I did not get to see the other two seasons of it though. I might pick them up on DVD and check out what I have missed. I am not even sure if they ran the third season of it over here.

It has four seasons. I'm guessing they should be available on DVD by now. Enjoy!

i did love that show, it was awesome, but then it got weird and then it ended, a lot of similarities to heroes for SURE,, i think any scifi show would have to have a bit of similarities. there is call for a 4400 movie or book, but as far as i know, nothing ever came of it..
