And Heroes is still on the air, WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
USA (ended 2007)
|Thats the way it goes unfortunately. The 4400 is by far the better of the 2. Not sure why Heroes is still going as I thought season 2 was very poor whereas all 4 seasons of the 4400 were excellent!|
Quality does not guarantee profit.
That's why MC Hammer is broke.
But to be fair, Heroes is about ordinary people discovering extraordinary abilities. The 4400 is about light people being drugged by future people.
I had not heard of "The 4400" when I started watching "Heroes".
I watched the entire first season of Heroes and thought it was ok. Then I started watching the second season and I felt nothing for the show. It did not grab my attention so I gavge up after the first couple of episodes.
Then I heard about The 4400 and I downloaded the first season and could not stop watching nor download the other 3 seasons fast enough!!!
I loved The 4400. In my opinion, while similar, it FAR exceeds Heroes.
I thought the ending was an adequate wrap-up - though I really would have liked to have known what Toms ability was!!!
So, uhh, I find Heroes much better. The acting, the writing, the cinematography... Everything about Heroes is better than The 4400. Now, don't get me wrong, the 4400 was awesome. I just can't see myself re-watching the series. It was a great story, and I'm glad I saw it, but I don't want to watch it again. Heroes is something I can see myself revisiting over and over again.
There are certainly tons of similarities between the shows, but if you're going to accuse Heroes of stealing from 4400, then you'll also have to accuse 4400 of stealing from comic books.
The whole people with abilities thing has been done to death, but somehow both the 4400 and Heroes gave a fresh spin on the genre. The next time someone does the same we're going to hear all about how Whatever-Show stole it's ideas from Heroes. It's a never ending cycle.
