Promising to Say the Least
4 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Based on premise alone, this series sounds like perfect SciFi. 4400 people are abducted over the years and are all returned on a single day with no knowledge of what happened to them. In this episode we are introduced to the first of the 4400 and to the NSA agents who will investigate the phenomena. The most interesting character to date is a little girl named Myra who appears to have the ability to tell the future in a creepy but delightful way. Why do children always seem so creepy in SciFi?!

The first few minutes are important so pay attention! Things slow down a little and then picks right up. The "returnees" are discriminated against which makes an interesting sub plot, but what really makes this show interesting as a premise is the super abilities of the returnees. Only time will tell if the show gets better or worse from this episode.

I plan on binge watching it so hang on tight and follow my reviews. See how my opinion changes as the series goes on.
