The 4400, better than Heroes, link inside

Okay, so this is not the highest budget show, but it's well-acted, and well-written, and doesn't rely on special effects to wow you, but there's quite a bit of action in this one. It's not quite as good as Battlestar Galactica, but it's much better than Heroes and as good as Lost, and hints at trying to make some political commentary (despite the network constantly meddling to not offend sensibilities) and not having pure good and evil. It's a show that takes chances and it's starting its 13-episode 4th season this Sunday, June 17th on USA; it has improved a lot in the last few years.

Here's a link to the Third Season Finale to even know if you want to give it a chance. There are certain things that are not gonna quite make sense because it's a serialized show and the writers try not to overstate things, except through a recap, but you should understand it enough to know whether you'd like to see more.
Thanks for giving it a shot.

Oh, it's back already? Cool. I don't watch it every week, but I catch it nowand then. I like it. It's a little cheesy at times, but enjoyable nontheless. I think the guy that plays Richard is awesome. I miss Lily. I thought they were an excellent couple. Oh well.

Caught a few episodes of the first season,
but then I then I missed too many and gave up on it.


I kind of liked it.


as for Heroes, about 80% of it is really good to me

and about 20% is just too cheesy

but, I am still in.



as for si-fi related series

I really liked Total Recall 2070

I'll admit the series has had a lot of problems, due to actors coming and going, but the acting is quite excellent.

Now that Jordan Collier's back (the actor when on a wierd cruise to help Third World countries), the show has really heated up again.

All I'm saying to Heroes fans is to watch the the episode I've posted; it was a LOT better than the Heroes season finale.

I did, and it still doesn't do anything for me.

Heroes had both.

Well, at least you gave it a shot. Thanks, though the characters have a lot more consistency and realism than Heroes which I find profoundly cliche and superficial; the only characters l liked were Sylar, Mr. Bennett and the Scottish/English guy who could be invisible. Anyway, thanks for checking it out.
