The complete second season of the TV series The 4400.
A year has passed since 4400 abductees were returned to Earth (and six months since the original series ended). Richard (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), Lily (Laura Allen), and Isabelle are on the run from Jordan Collier (Billy Campbell) and others who would attempt to harm their child. Shawn (Patrick Flueger) has moved into Collier's cult-like 4400 Center. Then there are NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command) agents Diana (Jacqueline McKenzie) and Tom (Joel Gretsch). The former has officially adopted Maia (Conchita Campbell), while the latter is reunited with formerly comatose son Kyle (Chad Faust), Shawn's best friend. Almost everyone, returnees and otherwise, is changing. Jordan, for instance, is having more seizures (as a result of his first encounter with the eerie Isabelle), while Kyle is having blackouts. Along the way, new characters are introduced, like mute mental patient Kevin (Jeffrey Combs), who regains the ability to talk, thanks to Tess (Summer Glau, Serenity), the only returnee who can recall what happened to her. Others include Diana's sister April (Natasha Gregson Wagner), Jordans pal Matthew (Garret Dillahunt, Deadwood), and former NTAC supervisor Dennis Ryland (Peter Coyote), who returns to the fold. Guest stars include E.R. 's Sharif Atkins ("Voices Carry"), Star Trek: Voyager's Robert Picardo ("Weight of the World"), and Twin Peaks' Sherilyn Fenn ("Carrier"). The season will end much as the miniseries began, with the 4400 being released from another quarantine, setting the scene for the next year. Although the first set was a barebones release, the second features commentary from McKenzie, Gretsch, writer Craig Sweeny, and writer/producer Ira Steven Behr. --Kathleen C Fennessy --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

In the second part of the season 2 we contract an addiction to it.
Will it increase in season 3 & 4 ?
The series is based in the realm of SciFi, with people having special abilities. However, the focus and premise of the whole show is the affects these have on the human subjects and their friends, and the show is plot driven rather than by set pieces. While not as fast paced as other SciFi series, the slow, gradual unfolding of the plot makes a refreshing change in a format that can be at times formulaic. After watching all the episodes, I can't wait for the next season.
I'd recommend this to people who enjoy SciFi, but I'd also recommend it to those who don't. It's definitely more of a Lost type series than it is a Star Trek.
The bottom line is, if you have a multi-region player, please do not finance this kind of behaviour by paying 150% of the region1-price for a vastly inferior product without any extras and a lazy low quality image transfer.
Anyway, this show rocks!
So the second season begins with us now waiting to see what happens to the 4400 centre and it's egomaniacal owner, 2 former friends now divided, one the star of the new centre the other seemingly a nobody. The staff of the government office tasked to keep an eye on the 4400, (NTAC), and their personal lives,(the 2 main officers both have 4400 children ),and so on.
Many of the individual shows are their own little story, like the 4400 who has the power to help people lose weight, and are quite able to stand up on their own aside from the main storyline. But it's the main story arc where the show is at it's strongest and provides the most surprises. It would spoil it to say anything about these character based revelations and twists & turns but suffice to say many of the people who you think you've got to grips with take some truly shocking decisions and carry out actions you could not have guessed beforehand, some even die.
To be honest I find myself buying more tv shows than films these days, the effects are often on a par, as are the 5.1 sound and picture quality. But most of all it seems that where Hollywood is intent on mining old ideas television keeps trying for something different and has the time to develop those ideas. That is illustrated perfectly in season 2 of the 4400. It has so much depth as it advances the original tentative ideas of season 1 and instead of just rehashing them takes chances and moves on.
There are making of docs and some commentary extras and the sound and picture are both good.
If you haven't seen the 4400 previously then I would suggest you go for season 1 first as it explains a lot. If you have seen season 1 but have yet to purchase this then rest assured it is even better and gives itself the time to unfold.
This show is well made, acted and developed. The acting is good and it moves forward with flair and imagination. Looking forward to season 3.
My only quibble is that the Region 2 DVD has no extras, whereas the Region 1 did!
