From Amazon.co.uk

The final season of The 4400 confirms what many fans of the show have known for some time: that this terrific, ambitious show has been one of the most interesting pieces of science-fiction to come out of America in some time, and it's one that's going to be very sadly missed.

Without wishing to give too much of the game away, this season of The 4400 finds brand new threats to face for a group of people who were suddenly abducted by aliens, and just as abruptly returned to Earth with all new powers. In recent times, this may sound a little close to something like Heroes, but rest assured that The 4400 more than retains an identity of its own, with far more edge that its recent follower.

The eleven episodes of this fourth season spells tough times for The 4400, further exploring the divisions between the abductees and the rest of the population. And as has become the norm, the show pulls few punches. Backed with strong production values, and a cast of actors who by this stage know their characters inside out, it’s a wonderful, grown-up slice of science fiction, and one that will prove hard to match in the years to come. For now, at least we get to watch it go out on a high with this fitting, accomplished final season, and it’s one that no science fiction fan will want to be without. --Jon Foster

Product Description

The 4400 returns for its fourth and final season. The 4400 explores the challenges of the 4400 people who all at once returned in a ball of light to Earth. Though the returnees had not aged physically, many of them reappeared with dramatic abilities ranging from enhanced reflexes to precognition. NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command) is the government agency responsible for keeping track of the returnees and investigating all things related to the 4400. The season opens with the episode The Wrath of Graham, where widespread distribution of the drug Promicin has created a dangerous new world, a world in which special abilities are no longer the exclusive province of the 4400. Fifty percent of those who take the shot pay the price with their lives, while those who survive are now ostracised by a government determined to rid the world of Promicin forever. The NTAC faces off against a high school student named Graham Holt who took Promicin and developed the ability to make people worship him like a god. But Promicin distribution was only the first step, and what's next on Jordan Collier's (Billy Campbell) agenda will require an even bigger leap of faith on behalf of believers and non-believers alike. Meanwhile, Tom visits Isabelle in prison, hoping she can shed some light on Alana's disappearance, Kyle meets a mysterious girl named Cassie, who offers him information that helps him wake up Shawn from his coma, Jordan Collier wrestles with his conscience as the death toll from Promicin continues to rise and Diana, upon hearing her sister April took Promicin, decides to leave Ben and Maia behind in Spain and temporarily return to Seattle to find her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sci-Fi since Babylon 5 18 Sep 2008
By Sahmraw
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The fourth series of the 4400 took the series to a new edge. It was dynamic, surpising, compelling and enthralling watching. Every episode left me on the edge of my seat.

In this 4th series, the 4400 drug Promicin is now available on the black market with a 50% chance of working and a 50% chance of it killing you. This series shows the propaganda of promicin use being seen as worse than heroin and the effects of a world rapidly changing through the expanded abilities of previously "ordinary" people.

Jordon Collier sets up "promise city" a place where 4400s, whether original or new, can live and use their abilities. It is a place where the government want to infiltrate.

Isobelle, the anti-4400 weapon from the future, goes through major life changes to find her ultimate destiny. There is even a re-appearance of her mother.

I was one of the millions of fans who sent sunflower seeds to USA network, with a message that the 4400 was a programme valued worldwide. I live in the UK and quite a number of us internationally wanted to show our disgust at the cancellation fo teh show that a US based website accepted international orders for the first imt in its history.

Despite tons of suflower seeds (a nod at the favourite snack of the "father" of the 4400) being sent to the Head of USA network, their decision to cancel the 4400 in its heyday shows a lack of thought for the people who pay their wages ultimately.

As soon as I have the funds I will be buying this boxset to complete my collection. I only hope that fan pressure and dvd sales worldwide will encourage some network to pick up this amazing series and give us a film or further series. I am sure Sky would still be co-funders as it is still one of the most watched programmes on repeat.

If you enjoy gritty drama with a sci-fi edge then the 4400 is for you. Forget Heroes, this is the future of great sci-fi.

4.0 out of 5 stars great but cancelled..sadly 1 Jun 2008
By CB..
Format:DVD
this entire series has been IMO one of the most satisfying of the recent sci fi series being as it is one which avoids a lot of the genres cliches and pit falls. it deliberately avoids the use of special effects and overt attempts to impress the viewer with large action sequences and so forth,
it relys on conceptual dilemas and a kind of inherent contrast between the differing sides in the plot lines..those for the 4400 and their diverse standpints and beliefs and those against them with equaly diverse points of view..the factions both within and out side the main protagonists offer a conctant ebb and flow of ideas which leave you struggling to decide who you feel is in the right..as obviuosly every-one has a valid point of view..nothing is black and white..that coupled with the excellent characterisations and photography etc offers the viewer the chance to sit back and enjoy the dilemas and whilst not being offered the answers in any way on a plate..
a great series with complexity and simplicity as two sides of the same coin..it's not too hard to relate the situations to the real world as it is now and as such is a very satisfying mirror on our own situation
dealing as it does with enhanced human abilities, globalised politics ecology and climate change and so on..

it has to be said tho the synopsis here at amazon is a little misleading in that this is not in plot line terms the final series..as the show has been cancelled..so there is no resoloution in this series..it simply works as series four rather than any tie-ing up of the series as a whole..

i only found this out by listening to the commentarys on the episodes..

5.0 out of 5 stars open ending 1 July 2008
Format:DVD
I am addicted to this show. The more I am in pain to learn that there will be no further seasons showed in the US. TV giant USA decided to not further continue the show. Mass protests from fans all over the states were unsuccessful. So season 4 ends with an open end and we all will never learn about the true ending of this spectacular TV series.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
fourth and alas final season of the 4400.a science fiction show about 4400 people who disappeared over the course of several decades, and them all of whom were returned to earth one day in a ball of light. and they all turned to have no memories of what had happened to them, plus a special power each. the show centres on two agents of a government task force called NTAC, tom baldwin and diana skouris, who deal with problems resulting from 4400's using or misusing their powers.

the first season was six episodes long, and the second and third thirteen each. whilst there were single storylines complete in each episode in most parts there was also a big ongoing storyline about how the 4400 were destined to change the world. thus you will miss out on a lot if you start with this season. so if you've not seen the show before go back and watch season one to begin with.

but if you've made it through the first three seasons, read on. not least because you'll have gotten totally hooked on the programme as a result.

the thirteen episodes of season four are presented here, over four discs. there are four episodes each on the first three discs, and the season finale is on the fourth one. over the course of this season, several factions are at war with each other over the future course of humanity. jordan collier has his own vision as to how those with abilities will change the world. sean reocvers and starts his own group, that preaches a more moderate way. NTAC as representatives of the government, are trying to keep a lid on everything. and also we meet the marked. beings from the future who want to stop the 4400. totally amoral and uncompromising, they possess powerful people in the present and use them to achieve their aims.

2.0 out of 5 stars why can they not finish them properly?
This was left on a knife edge. We do not know what happens and why/ All for budget cuts. If you want to stop something like his then why not make one episode to tie everything up?
