Did You Know?


During Jordan's inspirational speech on the steps toward the end of the episode, writer and executive producer Ira Steven Behr is one of the extras in the crowd. He can be seen clearly toward the front of the crowd in at least one shot, and is easily recognizable because of his distinctive mustache and goatee, which are dyed blue. See more »

An excellent series finale... But cruel series finale
5 March 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I really think "The 4400" is one of the best series of the decade, a great story, a lot of characters with so much to tell, an incredibly production... When I saw this episode, I said "Yeah, the next season is going to rock like hell", with that "4400 Seattle" and everyone discovering their powers,,, many people surely said it was like "Heroes",,,but The 4400 came first, OK? But, there was no more episodes... Like the series was planned to end in there (I don't be so sure,'cause in the DVD extras, one of the producers said some things about hat will going to happen in season 5), like everything was planned like this...but I don't buy it. What I'm surely known, is the series has his finale sooner than expected, and, if it wasn't bad, I felt there was to much left to say for The 4400. Oh, well, at least, we can say this was one of the best series in the beginning of the century.
