Episode 7 "Til We Have Built Jerusalem -- the best episode of that season up to that point -- is reairing on USA at 1am Eastern early Wednesday.

It is also making its Canadian premiere on Wednesday at 10pm Eastern and again, a few hours later, on Thursday at 2am Eastern and again at 2pm Eastern.

It was really good -- save a few awkward moments with Maia -- and I gave it an 8.5 out of 10.

The ending is very much reminiscent of Israel's actions, and is why that title is used, but I won't ruin the surprise for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Just rewatched "Till We Have Built Jerusalem" and it was great aside from a few Maia moments, which were just okay.

It's going to reair in Canada.

WRITER AMY BERG SPECIFICALLY RESPONDED TO A QUESTION I HAD ABOUT WHAT WE COULD DO TO HELP RENEW THE SHOW:

"As for how to help with the show's renewal, from what I've heard snail mail campaigns are the most effective. Network executives don't read message boards. And emails sent to a show's website don't get forwarded to them either. I've met USA's Exec VP of programming Jeff Wachtel on a number of occasions, he's a fan of the show. It's [President of USA] Bonnie Hammer that needs to hear your voices."

So, address those letters to Bonnie Hammer, folks! I sent mine to the same major USA Networkd New York address with her name at the top. I don't know if it's the right way to do it, but she has to be the focus of our attention!

"Daddy's Little Girl", which was great and which I gave 8.1 out of 10 will air on USA tonight (early Wednesday) at 1 am Eastern.

The episode will make it's Canadian premiere Wednesday night at 10pm Eastern on Space and then reair at 2 am Eastern (early Thursday) and again at 2pm Eastern.

Please get those letters urging renewal to President of USA Bonnie Hammer! She's also president of Sci Fi and in charge of allowing BSG to end early!

Forgot about the US repeat, but "One of US" is making its premiere in Canada tonight (Wednesday) at 10pm Eastern and then repeating at 2am Eastern and 2pm Eastern on Thursday. Amazing episode, and I'll enjoy watching it again.

I gave it an 8.6.

Alright. The wonderful episode has some great political commentary alluding to the widening gap between haves and have-nots and differing visions of the good society between socialist equality and materialist, unfettered capitalist hierarchy.

"Ghost in the Machine" airs late night tonight at 1am Eastern early Thursday on USA.

It makes its Canadian premiere at 10pm Eastern on Space Wednesday night, and a few hours later on Thursday at 2am Eastern and again at 2pm Eastern.

I'd give it an 8.6 out of 10.

"Tiny Machines" - season finale part 1 of 2 airs tonight at 1 am (early Thursday) Eastern on USA Network. It makes its Canadian premiere at 10pm Eastern tonight (Wednesday night) and a few hours later at 2 am (early Thursday) and 12 hours after that at 2pm. Plenty of chances to see what could be one of the last 4400 episodes!

It's amazing!

Kicks the living crap out of Heroes and most shows on TV.

I haven't been watching much television recently because I've been too busy, Heroes included.

Should I just watch "The Marked!!!" again and see how stupid it is, or what?

Showrunner of Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D. Moore, posted a picture from the writers' strike on his blog of my hero and head writer of The 4400 and Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Ira Steven Behr.

http://www.rondmoore.com/Site/Blog/E...icket____.html

So cool!

I read in an old interview that apparently Ron Moore offered Ira a job on BSG, but Ira was not interested in doing more space opera drama at the time.

At the time, I would have said no, Uber Beaver, but it looks like it's not now. Scott Peters, the creator posted a message here announcing the cancellation of the show hours ago; I hate life.:
http://forums.usanetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=395858

I was hoping the strike might force NBC to air some episodes and show how reasonably well the show could do with the right network audience available to it. I'm still in shock.

The season finale -- sorry, SERIES FINALE; thanks, USA! -- airs late Wednesday night (early Thursday at 1 am Eastern) on USA.

The Canadian premiere of that same series finale, "The Great Leap Forward" airs on Space at 10pm Eastern Wednesday and a few hours later early Thursday at 2am and 12 hours later at 2pm.

Enjoy the end.

Muldfeld, you are a great fan of the show and I'd like to thank you for the support. This has not gone unnoticed by myself and the crew of the 4400.

I do have to say, however, that your view on the show is completely wrong. You flatter me and our cast of writers with our "political insightful"-ness when in reality, we just like making science fiction.

It won't change the world, but it will make good television. We have decided to end the show because we felt the quality was declining and USA did not wish to continue pursuing the show any further.

I'll tell Ron about your views on Battlestar Galactica as well.

Goodbye.
