Product Description

During the past century, thousands of people have gone missing. When 4400 of them return all at once unharmed and looking the same as when they disappeared, the government investigates, unsure of how this can be possible. What the government does not know is that the presence of these 4400 will change the human race in many unexpected ways.

Amazon.com

The 4400, which began as a five-week miniseries on the USA Network, 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 centers 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 Coppola'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

5.0 out of 5 stars The 4400 - The Complete First Season November 21, 2004
Format:DVD
4,400 people who disappeared over the last 60 years are returned to earth all at once, and they are the same age as when they were abducted. The returnees have no memory of what happened while they were gone, and some demonstrate supernatural powers that they didn't have before they left.

Two federal agents, Tom and Diana, are assigned to investigate. Tom's nephew is one of the returnees who has been missing for three years. Diana develops a relationship with a now parentless child who was abducted several decades ago. The writers do a nice job of combining threads that continue from episode to episode with the new situations that arise. This show has been described as "X-Files meet X-Men". Recommended for sci-fi or fantasy fans.

I hunted around the internet for some information about the DVD. I found [...] which says that the Pilot and four episodes is included on the DVD set. The artwork doesn't mention any extras, which is disappointing if that is the case.

1. Pilot (2 hour movie): What scientists believe is a comet is actually a ball of light that leaves behind 4400 missing persons. The 4400 are quarantined and finally released.
2. The New & Improved Carl Morrissey: One of the 4400 becomes a vigilante trying to clean up the crime in his neighborhood.
3. Becoming: An M.O. used in a homicide is the same as the M.O. of a serial killer from 25 years ago. As the public turns hostile toward the 4400, one returnee, Jordan, decides to organize.
4. Trial By Fire: When a reporter makes the names of the 4400 public, the returnees are targeted by fire-bombers. Jordan tries to provide shelter for his fellow returnees.
5. White Light: The federal agents make a discovery about what had really happened to the 4400.

It's been a while since an episode aired, and I had some question about its future status. I've read that Season 2 has been ordered and will have 13 episodes starting in June 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching February 12, 2005
Format:DVD
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. In spite of there being no extras this is a set still well worth buying, the story alone is worth the purchase price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! February 16, 2005
Format:DVD
I loved this show. I wanted to watch it last summer when it was on tv, but I only got to see part of the pilot episode. It left me wanting more. When I saw that it had come out on dvd, I just knew that I had to see it. I watched the whole thing over a period of two days and I loved every bit of it. I don't normally watch sci-fi, but there was enough drama in it that it kept me interested. It answered some questions while leaving others unanswered in preparation for another season. There are only 5 episodes because it started out as a miniseries, but I'm so glad to hear that it got picked up for another 13 episodes. They will be able to do so much with it because there are 4400 stories out there about each of the returnees. It seemed like it addressed a lot of the questions and fears that people would have if something like this were to happen. I just can't recommend it more for anyone that is slightly interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great alternative to Taken January 28, 2005
By Justin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I bought this, it was because my all-time favorite mini-series, Taken, was $105 and while I may love the show, I can't/won't afford to pay that. So through hepful links from there I found The 4400 and for $20 figured it couldn't hurt to give it a try.

Well, having seen all of it now, I can safely say it's the greatest thing to ever come from the USA Network (along with a superior adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining). The stories all move at a good pace (if you hear it's slow, these people have the attention span of a shovel) and the stories are all interesting. It sucks that all you get is the shows, but that's not going to knock my grading down at all. I like extras, but they aren't the be all, end all of my viewing experience.

Can you imagine if this weren't successful and would've ended after these five episodes? It would've been horrible. The 4400 takes you into a great, believable world, with lots of plots and action and twists along the way as the mystery of these people, and their return, is followed.

I can't wait for Season 2!

Alot of fans have related THE 4400 to THE X-FILES. It is not the X-Files. While the X-Files was centered around Mulder and Scully and they had cases come to them that covered the gammit from seamonster to possession to little green men the 4400's agents Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris have one central case that they are assigned to with many other smaller cases being branched off of it.

The case Baldwin and Skouris are investigating is "What happened to the 4400?" That is what the entire series centers around, the Orson Baily phenomenon, the Oliver Knox copycat, and the arsons that sprout up are all parts of the larger question.

The acting in this series itself is supurb, for example you have Richard Tyler (Ali) who was abducted in the 1950s in South Korea. When Richard returns he is first seen looking through a magazine saying "The Secretary of State is black!" And eight year old Cochita Campbell who plays Maia Ruteledge displays such courage and toughness having been abducted in 1938. An example is in the pilot when the foster parents that Maia was set up in bring her back to quarentine and Ryland talks to her opening the conversation with a remark on the weather, Maia responds with "You didn't come out here to talk with me about the weather."

There is also a great score to scenes that signify importance, like in the scene where the abductees return. The score is so bone-chilling that it terrifies the viewer.

There is also a romance factor to the story as well as Richard Tyler and Lily Moore hook up because Richard knew her grandmother.
