Yeah.
http://www.the4400.com. Then go to the message board.

However, http://www.savethe4400.net has all kinds of instructions on the campaign, though the author also participates on the official site's message board.

It's all a conspiracy.
You gotta try, right. On the site, there's instructions for a letter-writing campaign, and this is world-wide. This show is huge in France and popular among fans in many non-English speaking parts of Europe. I doubt "Arrested Development" had that kind of reach.

Anyway, I was not a huge fan of Arrested Development, except the hot sister and it was nice nostalgia to see Jason Bateman again after last seeing him in Teen Wolf 2 and that '80s sitcom ("Valery's Family", I think, which became "The Hogan Family" when the main actress left.). Same trendy zany quick wit. Not very realistic and not politically-insightful at all. Very damn funny.

You know, if you check out the DVDs, including the audio commentaries by "yourself", you'll find I'm very right about the political brilliance of the show. It's not fracking escapist nonsense.

Oh fuck, Internet Ira Steven Behr forgot about non-English speaking Europe. Stupid him.

Arrested Development was extremely politically insightful. Extremely. Look at this:



Of course the creator of the damn show will say it's politically insightul, it's his baby. Very few parents admit that their kid's shit stink, even if they are little bastards. NSFW knows what I'm talking about.

Chris Carter loves Arrested Development, btw. You better watch out.

With this damn writers strike there is not much worth watching on TV

So I have been migrating up the dial on my 600 channel TW cable box.

channel 419 is UHD


UHD is Universal H D channel.


here is their link - they have some great series .


They are starting season 3 of Battle Star Gallactica series, and will run all the episodes!!

There are some other great SCI-FI series on there, too.

I know Direct TV offers UHD my guess is Dish network does, too.

I think it would be worth the extra $10 bucks for an al la cart add if you do not have it, (I have channels - I don't ever watch or know about)

Deep, please check out the last half of Season 4 of The 4400, beginning with "The Marked".

Speaking of which, Mudfield, this morning I woke up with a bump behind my right ear that I didn't have yesterday. All day long I have had an urge to slap politicians and political pundits. I had a good workout though. Should I be concerned?

You should be glad you didn't wake up with something else behind your right ear.

Like a "gun".

Well, not as brilliant as the hanger scar on Lance's face joke, but thank you.

Yes, I get Universal HD, and seeing some of the older episodes on it is spectacular.

But the stupid Sci-Fi Channel should be showing it in HD right away. I find it ironic that a channel dealing with a genre deep in technology blows off HD like it's no big deal...

I have no idea what HD looks like. Is it like the regular DVDs because those look so much better than the TV broadcast.

HD's a step up from the DVDs, that's for sure.

NBC's HD channels are always top-notch.

I haven't done my own comparison, but from what I've heard, the difference is as big as the one between VHS and DVD. And that's scary.

Apparently you need a larger TV to really appreciate it though, I'm talking 42" or more.
