The first two were based more on ones perception on how the events unfolded, but the third was pretty clear where the writers were coming from.
It was a very intereseting season, and I am anxious for season 4.
So, in this season we learn that in the future there is technology of such an amazing degree that they can send people back in time regularly and have the ability to give humans amazing and important super powers, but they can't solve their own meager problems. We don't know what future catastrophe they are trying to evade (but in one episode we find that an amazing leap in our level of scientific knowledge may help), but we know the dystopia they face is a world with one city that is powerful and "ok" with walls keeping out the rest who presumably are not so well off. We don't know who sent back the 4400, or Isabelle (who has a mission to eradicate the 4400s). Was it is the city or those out of the city? If its those outside the city, the plot makes no sense since that means they have this incredible technology and aren't using it, if it is the city why don't they just start helping the people outside the walls? I think we are supposed to believe the city is evil and hoarding all the resources (except world changing technology...), and those outside the city are trying to avert the current state. But, its not clear yet and it does not need to be clear. If it ever is it might make sense, but I'm really starting to doubt it.Read more ›
It's not about evolution. It's about the good in mankind overcoming the bad.
The twists and turns helped this show evolve from a story of abductions and futuristic sci-fi lore into an entirely prolonged story of the human race's struggle to survive.
Such an Excellent Series!
TV shows, in an effort to capture viewers, pour heaps of money into production initially. Once the viewer base has been established, the drawstrings get tightened. A good example of this is soundtracks. Pilot episodes generally have huge budgets to purchase songs, but as the series progresses, the music will invariably switch from being purchased to being composed. There are a few good composers out there, but, generally speaking, purchased music will always be better/more timely.
Special effects/CGI - same thing. CGI is super expensive. Invariably a show starts off with a load of CGI and episode by episode, the CGI decreases. A good example of this is Battlestar Galactica. Have you noticed the diminishing frequency of robot cylon shots as the series progresses? Those robot cylons are CGI and cost a pretty penny. For a science fiction show, CGI is crucial as it allows the writers greater creative freedom. If the CGI budget is thin, it can restrict plot points and, in turn, lower the quality of the show.
Actors are a huge budgetary concern as well. They generally start off being paid very little. If the show does well, they start asking for more money. If they ask for too much, their characters tend to either get killed off or go on hiatus. Another problem with actors from successful shows is that they get other work. This other work can create scheduling problems.
One of the biggest obstacles to consistently great television is syndication. The bread and butter of syndicated television are episodes that can stand alone. No meta arcs/no continuing storylines. Even on shows with stories that span seasons, there is a huge push from the studio to produce the much more syndicatable single arc episodes.Read more ›
