I'm enjoying this season quite a bit. The show has certainly gotten better, much less cheesy than the past seasons. A bit more relevant now.

This really brought a smile to my face. I'm glad.

The season finale, "The Great Leap Forward" for what's turning out to be an incredible 4th season that just didn't start out great is reairing tonight at 1am (so it's really early Wednesday) Eastern on USA.

Last chance to impact the ratings to get the show renewed.

Here's a link to the feedback page to nicely ask the USA network to renew The 4400:
http://www.usanetwork.com/feedback/

However, written mail supposedly has far more weight, as the administration on the official site says "Writing an actual letter to the network is your best bet. One snail mail is worth 100 emails." So, here's the postal address:

USA Network
30 Rockefeller Plaza
21st Floor
New York, NY 10112

Or here's a link to a printable blank letter and envelope with the address filled out:

The 4400 season premiere reairing on USA now!

It will make its Canadian debut at 10 Eastern on Space today (Wednesday); then be reaired early Thursday at 2am and again at 2pm.

It had a good continuing story element, and an okay standalone element. Just not refined enough or as interesting enough for me, especially for a season premiere.

I gave it a 7.2 out of 10.

"Fear Itself" reairs this Tuesday night (really Wednesday morning) at 1 am Eastern on USA, my babies.

That same episode airs in Canada on for the first time at 10pm Eastern on Space on Wednesday before being repeasted a few hours later at 2 am and then 2pm Thursday.

It was okay. I gave it a 7.3 -- nothing compared to the more engaging drama and political insight of later episodes. The Shawn and Kyle storylines were the best part.

"The Truth and Nothing but The Truth" airs tonight (Tuesday at 2am Eastern) on USA. The same episode also airs in Canada on Space first this Wednesday at 10pm Eastern, then again a few hours later at 2 am Thursday and again at 2pm that same day!

It had a great subplot with Shawn, but a decent main plot. I think I gave it a 7.9 out of 10. It has some welcome criticism of the corruption of the military industrial complex, including defective body armor, which is all too real, according to some recent Newhour reports by Paul Solman.

Please remember to write those letters to USA to ask them to renew the show or at least use the internet form in the above links. Thanks.

"Try the Pie" airs in a few hours -- Tuesday 2 am Eastern time on USA. This same episode also airs in Canada on Space this Wednesday at 10pm and a few hours later at 2 am Eastern and 2pm Eastern on Thursday.

I thought the townspeople subplot was weak, but it was still fairly good. 7.8, I think I gave it.

Send in those letters, 4400 fans!

The 4400 starts to heat up with "The Marked" which airs in a few hours on USA at 2 am Eastern Tuesday Oct. 30th.

Hilarious beginning and a conspiratorial twist that ends up being quite subtle in the rest of the season. I gave it an 8 out of 10.

Canadian premiere of "The Marked" on Space at 10pm Eastern tonight (Wednesday); it reairs a few hours later on Thursday at 2am Eastern and again at 2pm Eastern.

Good episode leading to a very subtle and dramatically realistic conspiracy in which the "bad guys" aren't so different from the current Bush administration with their belief in hierarchy and privilege for a few.

I gave it 8 out of 10, and that may have been a bit harsh at the time because I thought it might go down an X-Files path, but it didn't.

Write those letters, fans!
