  • The New World (1)

    The New World (1) was a perfect start to the third season of The 4400. I really enjoyed watching this episode because it picks right up where last season ended. Isabelle has grown and visits Shawn who is uncomfortable with the situation. I thought it was interesting how this affected Lily, and it was fun to watch Richard come to terms with what has happened. I felt really bad for Lily who was only 29. Meanwhile Tom and Diana try to track down TJ Kim using Gary Navarro and his mind reading ability. I thought this was a fast paced episode with a lot happening. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!moreless
  • A new organization, the Nova Group, claims to be a defensive organization for 4400s.

    Good start to the new season which nicely continues from the excellent season 2 finale.

    Ryland is on trial and is attacked by his attorney who's under the influence of a 4400.

    Many more 4400s are showing signs of ability now that the chemical is no longer used. This causes a lot of problems, Richard for instance, cannot control his telekenisis.

    It was shocking to see a grown-up Isabelle and an old Lily and seeing as Shawn can't heal it, it's not really a sickness.

    The ending was a nice twist, revealing the fact that Shawn used the centre's money to start the Nova group was surprising!moreless
  • A great start for a promising season!

    Many things are revealed in this promising pilot. Some new 4400 are brought up with new abilities such as the power to control electricity and to produce light in the palm of the hand. Isabelle ages as does Lily (her mother). Isabelle, knowing that she is the cause of her mother's 50 years in one minute aging tries to commit suicide but miraculously survives without a scratch. We are introduced to the Nova Group, a group of 4400 "militia" that attack those who are against the returnees. Finally we acknoledge the fact that Shaun is involved with the Nova Group.

    A great start with promising caracters and new stories.moreless
  • Season Three begins...

    "Anyone else feel like they're staring at a doomsday clock?"

    The 4400 saga continues where it left off in this pivotal albeit a little slow series opener. More 4400s and their abilities are revealed, as are the terrorist Nova Group.

    Isobelle is a welcome addition to the now quite large cast, and the actress playing her does well in displaying her innocence and suicidal nature.
  • Season 3 kicks off and it kicks off hard

    Well it wouldn\'t be the 4400 without surprises and great moments. Season 3 kicks off and it kicks off hard. We find out Lily has gotten old fast and it\\\'s because of Isabelle. It brings alot of character interaction and sub-plots that can go on for the remainder of the season. Isabelle is a great addition and alot to absorb but amazing well acted by Megalyn. I am sad to say goodbye to Laura Allen but I know she left the show on bad terms and will not be appearing again. Too bad, she was starting to grow on me.

    I can\'t wait for sunday to come along so I can continue with this great show.moreless
