Storyline

The pilot begins with a ball of light sailing towards Earth, but rather than the expected catastrophic event, thousands of returned abductees are left with no memory of their otherworldly experiences. Each has been gone anywhere from a few months to several decades, but hasn't aged a day. These are the stories of the 4400 abductees after they are returned to Earth. The show follows two NSA agents who are trying to figure out what happened and why. Some of those returned have been affected in mysterious ways with certain abilities, both good and bad.

Well Done
16 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I must absolutely agree that this show relies more on imagination of the viewer rather than special effects. For me, I wouldn't have it any other way. I like the fact that it makes me want to watch the next episode to see what happens next. What it takes from effects definitely makes up with outstanding performances, well rounded imagination, and an excellent plot. I would recommend this series not only to avid sci-fi watchers but also to lovers of other genres as well. It has a certain flair that I feel would appeal to all audiences, young and old. If you liked the suspense of the X-Files you will be on the edge of your seat with this one. Lots of twists and turns to keep you coming back for more. I would say keep your eyes to the skies and keep an open mind. Not only will you want to know what happens next, you'll be waiting for the next episode to find out. Two big thumbs way up!
