  • The 4400

    Good movie
  • Weight of the World

    8.5
    Weight of the World was a great episode of The 4400. I really enjoyed watching this episode as we learn about a 4400 who apparently has the ability to help others lose weight by coming into contact with his saliva. This is a unique power, and its actual purpose a mystery as those who tried it are dead or dying due to an overcharged metabolism, basically they are canibalizing themselves. I really enjoy the way all these events fit into a bigger picture and its a puzzle for NTAC to solve. Kyle has been dealing with blacking out, and I suspect it has to do with people from the future. Sean and Collier seem to be growing apart as Sean realizes Collier isn't as good as he projects. It was sad to see Devon hurt herself over Collier, but brings up an important issue that does happen in real life. I look forward to watching the next episode of The 4400!!!!!moreless
  • Kyle discover he's got some ability too.

    Richard, Lily and Isabelle are still on the run and meet up with another one of the 4400. However, by the end of the episode they have to run away again.



    I did not think this storyline worked very well. The way it ended was too obvious, naturally that guy would go crazy and squeal to the NTAC. I hope we will get some indication of what's planned for Isabelle soon. This little Damien act has been done before.



    I liked Kyle's storyline, it's interesting to see that even though he's no longer the messenger (or is he?) he's still involved, even more so now that strange things have started to happen to him...moreless
  • Great episode I liked the guest role of Robert Picardo in the 4400.

    Great episode I liked the guest role of Robert Picardo in the 4400. I hope they put more famous people in the show. It looked like Richard was afraid of the baby, I even thought for a moment he was gonna leave them because of that. I hope they put more ripple's in the next episode.
  • An interesting episode, though I don't see the point to Isabelle baby yet...

    6.9
    An interesting episode, though I don't see the point to Isabelle baby yet... even though yes seems to be human lie detector... Would like a little further insight on the what the future is to be that it needs the 4400...

    ANd maybe a few more ripples should start showing up...

      David: (to Richard) Now you are a lucky man. This one here, (points to his wife) well it's yap, yap, yap.

    • David: So Richard, we know what you were up to in 1951, how about lately?
      Richard: Well I've been working as an auto mechanic.
      David: Oh really? So what brings you to this part of the country? It's kind of remote for a vacation.
      Eric: They came to see me. Us 4400s, we gotta stick together. We have a bond that you mere humans will never understand.
      David: Eric, you freak me out when you talk about that 4400 unity crap.

    • Eric: The guy was 81. He was born four years after I was.
      Mrs. Papequash: Well luckily, I like older men.

    • Tom: But a 4400 putting his gift on the open market is a first. We wanna make sure nobody gets taken advantage of. Not you, not the buyer, other 4400s.
      Trent: You don't have to teach me about selling, I've been a salesman my whole life. Most of the stuff I pedal, junk. But now I've got a product that everybody wants and only I can provide. I am the damn product! Nobody's putting Trent Appelbaum back in the bottle.

    • (someone hands Kyle a flier)
      Kyle: Last days of Pompeii.
      Wendy: Yeah, they throw that party every year. You should go. Blow off some steam. You've earned it.
      Kyle: I hate to go alone. You up for it?
      Wendy: I probably flunked half the members of that frat.

    • (hands a bottle of water to Applebaum)
      Dimitri: I want you to take a sip, because if I'm right, and you made me lose all this weight, then the same thing should happen to my wife. Who though, I love very much, I do, could stand to lose maybe 20 pounds.
      Celeste: 30.

    • Trent: I'm sorry about your car.
      Elise: I'll ride a bus to work.

    • Lily: Richard, I'm late. Like, I might be pregnant, late.
      Richard: You sure?
      Lily: No I'm not sure. I'm late.
      Richard: Well, we'll just have to wait and see.
      Lily: Wait and see?
      Richard: We'll go to the drug store and maybe get one of those test things.
      Lily: And what would you like it to say?
      Richard: I'd like it to say congratulations....you have a job, a house and a future, you're ready for another child. But, I don't think it's gonna say that.
      Lily: No, probably not.

    • Shawn: You can be a manipulative prick, you know that?
      Jordan Collier: Yeah, well it helps to use your entire skills set when you're trying to change the world.

    • Dimitri: These people who took you, they set you up for life. They snatched up a bum salesman. They sent you back, the human diet!
      Trent: The human diet. I like that.

    • Dimitri: I thought you 4400s got special powers. How come you're such a big nothing?
      Trent: Just lucky I guess.

    • Dimitri: In my business, we hear every sob story in the book. But I gotta tell you, yours is a new one. Disappeared fifteen years ago, came back and my wife died. Daughter dropped out of school. You got a bad break, but you borrowed the money, now you have to pay me back.

    • Elise: How'd it go today, Daddy? (Trent just stares) That bad, huh?
      Trent: Nobody wants to buy time shares in Wilmington, Idaho.
