Heroes/The 4400

I use to watch the kookamonga show The 4400. It started off promising. 4400 people dropped off in a big ball of light in a field, all missing from different time periods and all having strange "abilities". Huh. As the season continued new abilities conveniently popped up when need to complete an episode. Huh. And then a synthetic abilities drug was made to give the normal people abilities. And this guy was one of the normal people that signed up to take the abilities drug.
On Heroes Monday there was a volunteer soldier willing to take the genetically altered drug that is suppose to give people "hero powers'. Huh. It's the same freakin guy. But with shorter hair.
I've been watching Heroes this season thinking this is turning into The 4400. I think my theory has been proven right. Who's with me on the train wreck? I will continue to watch and then bash it on this blog.

I never watched the 4400, but Heroes is getting very convoluted. I am glad that Sylar is back to being bad--he was just too good at bad to be good, if you know what I mean.

The Wife and I have been watching Heroes on DVD. It sounds like we might be stopping when it gets to this season. Thanks for the warning.

I liked the 4400 too when it began. But like Nowhere Man and Twin Peaks before it, it went south fast. Roswell, another example.

Oh, thank you! I was trying to figure out where I'd seen that guy before.

Patricia - Sylar should continue to cut out peoples brains, he does brain sucking villian very well!

unfinishedrambler - You have to continue to watch and be miserable with the rest of us, sorry.

AlwaysWatching - I took me a couple minutes to figure it out and then I said, "You got to be kidding me."
