Product Description

First six episodes of the US sci-fi drama TV mini-series executive-produced by Francis Ford Coppola. Over the last century, thousands of people have gone missing and are presumed dead. When a meteor impacts over Earth, all 4400 people are returned to Earth as suddenly and inexplicably as they disappeared. This series tells the story of their return, and the mysterious ways in which their journey has affected them.

From Amazon.co.uk

The 4400, which began as a five-week mini-series, is built around a deceptively simple, dramatically rich premise. What if all the people, who had ever been abducted by aliens, were suddenly returned to Earth? What would happen? Although they look exactly as they did when they left, they have no knowledge of where they were or why they were taken. Now some even have special powers, like clairvoyance. As with ABC's Lost, which centres on the survivors of a plane crash, The 4400 features a large cast of characters and a host of mysteries to be solved. If the special effects, which are kept to a minimum, can be a little cheesy at times, the concept--and the skillful execution of the concept--easily makes up for it.

Produced by Francis Ford Coppolla's American Zoetrope and created by Scott Peters (The Outer Limits), The 4400 is set in Seattle, where the 4400 are returned. The principal characters include Dennis Ryland (Peter Coyote of E.T.), the local supervisor of Homeland Security. He's joined by agents Tom Baldwin (Joel Gretsch of Taken), whose nephew was one of the returnees, and Diana Skouris (Jacqueline McKenzie of Romper Stomper), who takes in one of the youngest returnees.

Guest stars include Michael Moriarty (Law and Order) in "Pilot" and Lee Tergeson (Oz) in "Becoming." Billy Campbell (Once and Again) also appears in several episodes as Jordan Collier, a real-estate magnate and returnee who becomes an advocate for others like himself, many of whom are having problems adjusting to a changed world. Like Lost, one of the biggest success stories of 2004, The 4400 debuted to strong ratings and was renewed for a full season. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This story centres on 4400 people who, at various times throughout the last 60 years have gone missing. One night a huge ball of light appears by a lake in Washington state. The light disappears leaving behind the 4400 missing people. They have no memory of where they have been or what has happened to them. As far as they are aware, no time has passed.
The tale unfolds as various key characters are introduced and the realisation hits that the 4400 are now 'different', they have strange gifts or powers. What remains to be discovered is where they have been, why they were taken and, most important of all, what is the purpose of their return.
This dvd set features all of series 1 over 2 discs. There are no extras except for subtitles for the hard of hearing (definitly there on my set although a previous reviewer says there are none). In spite of there being no extras this is a set still well worth buying, the story alone is worth the purchase price.

As the title says, if you can make your way through this series (and are either interested or entertained by the idea and plot) then the second series gets a whole lot better.
This fairly short (episode-wise) series starts with an 80 minute long Pilot in which we see the abduction of various people (from the 1930's through to 2001), followed by a skip ahead in time to 2004,when all the abductees, all 4400 of them, are returned all at once in Seattle. They are soon carted off to a quarantine area controlled by a government organisation called NTAC, where we are introduced to a couple of the 4400s (one of which is the son of an NTAC agent) who will appear in almost every episode of this, and the next three seasons.
The Pilot carries on to show what happens after these 4400s are released from quarantine and how they start to try and adapt to their new surroundings.
The next four episodes (each 40 minutes long) explore the lives of the few 4400s we met in the pilot, as well as the two NTAC agents assigned to watching over all the 4400s still living in Seattle (there are a lot of them) and adding a new 4400 character each episode (one who usually dies or goes away for some reason or another by the end of the 40 minutes).
Though, as other reviewers have said, there aren't many big special effects scenes in this first series, they were obviously saving the budget for the season finale.
Basically, the season finale (which arrived much too quickly in my opinion) cranks up a bit of tension through-out before telling you just about everything you wanted to know about the 4400s (why/where they went and who took them). The end, however, does set up the idea for the next season which, as I said in the title, is much better than this one in my opinion.

Format: DVD
The last year had a lot of creepy-suspenseful shows, sort of crosses between "X-Files" and "Lost." But before those shows came out, there was the most underrated one: "The 4400," a suspenseful, intelligent show that looks not at mysterious abductions -- but mysterious returns.

1946: A little girl vanishes in the woods. 1951: A black GI vanishes from a tent. 1979: A corporate head vanishes from his car. 2001: A teenager vanishes from a camping trip, leaving his cousin in a coma. In 2004, a comet is on a collision course with Earth, causing widespread panic. But instead of crashing, it hovers over a Seattle lake -- and leaves 4400 bewildered people around the lakeside.

These people all vanished over the past sixty years, and have been returned without any aging, and with no memory of what happened to them in the time they were gone. Tom Baldwin (Joel Gretsch), whose son is the one in a coma, is desperate to find out what did happen, so he rejoins Homeland Security to keep tabs on the "4400," as they are now known.

Some like his nephew Shawn (Patrick Flueger) return to their old lives, only to find that they are reviled. And some like ex-GI Richard (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali) and his girlfriend's granddaughter Lily (Laura Allen) find that they have no lives to return to. Ostracized and threatened, they start to draw together. But the strangest thing is that the 4400 are starting to show signs of X-Men-like powers: super speed, clairvoyance, telekinesis, healing, and mind control.

Tom and his HS partner Diana Skouros (Jacqueline McKenzie) track down both rogue abductees, and try to prevent harm from coming to the innocent 4400s.

There is only one problem with this show - Series 1 was WAY too short. The premise is intriguing - 4400 people who have disappeared over the last century are returned - from where, nobody knows. They have not aged and they have no memory of where they have been, nor are they aware that any time has passed. Instead of being allowed return immediately to their loved ones, they are held in a detention centre until they have been assessed as a threat to national security. Thanks to the legal system they are eventually released - and then the fun begins. After the pilot episode, each episode deals with a single individual who is displaying unusual powers. The questions for the security teams monitoring the returnees are; what has caused these changes, are they dangerous, and how many more of the returnees have unusual powers?

However, the series doesn't just deal with the fantastic, it also deals with the very human emotions of someone who has been returned - how do they cope with the fact that they are still the same age as they were when they disappeared, whereas their friends and family have all grown up or, in some cases, died? How does someone look for a job when they have a 40 year gap on their resume? How does a returnee adjust to the social and political changes which have occured while they were gone?

Looking forward to getting my hands on series 2!
