What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
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, its 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 its one that no science fiction fan will want to be without. --Jon Foster --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

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.
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..
whilst on the one hand i'm gratefull they didn't hash up a resoloution to the series by trying to condense everything into the episodes as is often the case with cancelled series.. it does leave you in mid air as the final episode ends...but i'd rather that than having the series go "tabloid" in order to resolve everything ..perhaps a one of film would be nice to bridge the gap between where the series ends and where it perhaps wanted to go....and that's the hard part about losing this series at this point..it obviuosly had a huge story to tell...and could have happily run for another 4 series without running out of steam..it's quite obviuos that the real drama was yet to come...
anway a very sad loss to the genre
but for me it remains one of the most subtle and satisfying series i have ever seen
