4.0 out of 5 stars A real surprise treat, 17 Feb. 2009
This review is from: The 4400: The Complete First Season [DVD] (DVD)
Having just finished watching Heros seasons I and II, and my wife having spotted this series on sale for next to nothing in a second hand DVD shop, I had a definite feeling that we were about to watch a cheap and dissapointing forerunner. But no!

4400 begins by showing short scenes from a handful of people that over the last 60 years have dissapeared whilst they were alone - each one taken in a ball of light. Then in present time (2004 in this series) a meteorite is calculated as heading for earth. TVs are tuned in to see that the meteorite begins to slow down and finally come to a halt hovering over a lake near Seattle in the US.

The light vanishes and leaves a mist which clears to reveal 4400 people that had been taken but who have no memory of where they had been.

We follow the story of some central 4400 returnees mainly through the eyes of 2 NTAC (National Threat Assessment Center)agents - Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris - lead investigators in the events that unfold from that point.

The series, although short at 5 episodes, contains enough plot, variation, suspense and character development to keep you entertained and interested throughout. The central handful of returnees whos lives you most follow develop well, and the structure of both the individual episodes and the series as a whole is highly successful.

As some of the 4400 begin to develop superhero-like abilities such as precognition, the ability to heal, telekenisis and such like, and as the series draws to a close, we are left with questions as to why they were taken, what the future holds and in the very last episode, some gripping twists that leave you panting for more!
