  • One of Us

    One of Us was a superb and exciting episode of The 4400. I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of action, suspense, and drama. There was also character and plot development. It was nice to see Lily again. Isabelle went through all sorts of chanages in this episode but in the end is brought back to how she was before and is in danger of falling back under the use of the Marked. I thought it was interesting what Tom was experiencing as the Marked took over his body and begun working with Rebecca Parrish. Richard tried his best to give him and Isabelle a second chance. This episode had a lot of great elements. I look forward to watching the next episode of The 4400!!!!!!!moreless
  • Lily is back and Isabelle is an adult again.

    After having dreams about the future and the 4400. Now, Tom Baldwin is one of the Marked. He has got Matthew Ross's old personality. He wants Isabelle to get back her powers. Isabelle is now an adult again (her memories are back) and Richard is in prison.

    Shawn and doctor Kevin Burkhoff announce that they have developed a test that can tell people whether taking promicin will cause their death. Jordan Collier is opposite to this test. He wants everyone to take promicin, so those who aren't promicin positives, will be dead. He doesn't want two kinds of people living on earth.

    When Isabelle was still a baby, Richard was visited by his dead wife Lily. The sad part of it is that it was the ability of a 4400 to telepathically make others see specific people in their lives and interact with them under the belief they're real. Who exactly is Cassie?

    Joel Gretsch's acting was great. It was good to see him playing a completely different character.moreless
  • Lily returns...

    A great episode despite it not being my favourite storyline. I don't like the thought of Tom being controlled by someone from the future, turning him into one of the marked. I'm sure Diana and Meghan will figure it out, after all, he is behaving unlike Tom, but still, I hope they figure it out sooner than later.

    I loved the return of Lily, if only for one episode. I always loved Richard and Lily as a couple, so it was great to see them together again, while at the same time it was very sad.

    Isabelle was always going to be returned to her adult age, but this seemed too easy, too fast and too soon.moreless
  • Consistently entertaining...

    ...despite the last guys review. I have to disagree. I'm completely spellbound by the entire series. I have only recently started watching the 4400 and have watched the entire 4 seasons in the last couple of weeks. Sure there are a few bits that are slightly loose ended, but for the most part this show is never dull and always surprisingly entertaining. I love how the reintroduce characters, such as Lily. Sure she was off shooting Dirt, but I forgive her. Ha ha. Anyhow, I love this show and like all of the episodes previously, I loved this episode. I am bummed to see Tom turn into one of the marked, but I'm sure that Di will catch on soon and they'll find a way to bring the real Tom back. Interesting plot twist.moreless
  • Too bad tv dot com has pretty much no choice for negative (:

    Any way, i can live with the twists and turns but not another "Lost" for Christ sakes. Everytime the script fellaz` run out of juice we either get flash backs wich are flash forwards in this case. Instead of strongly exploiting the main plot of the movie they are breaking it down to less and less advancement. And the morals they preach - War is inevitable, casualties are inevitable and the only way to teach people better is by killing many of them i realy hate that, that kind of thinking over the ages led us where we are today. And i doubt many ppl would say that its a good spot to be in. Only people who think themselves above others think that way. So as the previous episode it looks like the ship is sinking. If they keep it up probably many people will scratch the series.If it were up to me id scratch the series for message it tries to send to people.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Shawn: What's your alternative? Do you really want the entire world to take promicin?
      Jordan: Yes. Yes, I do. It's what I've always said has to happen.
      Shawn: Half of the planet will die! You're talking about mass suicide!
      Jordan: I am talking about a single generation of sacrifice. And at the end of it, a more fully-evolved species. All of our failings as human beings will be addressed when we are all gifted. I am not making any announcement. And no one who cares about what's right for the world would.

    • Cora Tomkins: These abilities we have, they are a gift from God, and we need to treat them with respect.
