'The 4400' is The Awesome!  
My brother-in-law and I have been watching this show since the beginning and both separately have come to the conclusion that we are LOVING this season. Last season, it seemed to us like they were just throwing stuff against the wall to see if it stuck, but this season there really seems to be cohesive point as if they know *exactly* where they are going. And I'm really intrigued by that direction. I just have been so very impressed with this season so far. I really have.

Another thing that has surprised me is how much I like Kyle this season. Boy, what a difference a haircut makes. Seasons one and two I thought the actor should never be really cast as anything other than "thug#2" in anything, but now, I'm not only liking his character, I'm wanting to see him pair up with Isabelle and MYGOSH! he actually briefly (very briefly) reminded me of Jason Dohring tonight.

I only have two complaints with the show now: First, I think they've made Sean too wimpy, wimpy for my taste. Give the boy a little fire. Well, I guess he has some, but it only comes across as whining and I'm not sure if it's the writing/set-up or the acting, because I've really enjoyed the actor prior to this season. My other is the new boss, Meghan. Man, I really wanted her to be dead tonight. She's just not that good of an actress and she and Tom are a big, fat solid bust, especially after the awesome beauty of the introduction of the Tom/Alana love story -- which was one of my favorite hours of television ever!

Still, those are two small thingies in the ocean of awesomeness I think this season is.

Tonight's episode was pretty good, I thought, for a clear bottle episode (an episode shot on mostly one set to save money, Star Trek did these every so often). I liked that they worked in some good psychological stuff within the action of the episode, although I did figure that P.J. was behind it early on when he reacted to Meghan's "death." (Damnit!!, I really wanted her dead, but as soon as Sean "died" too, I knew they would both live, the both including her. Sigh.) Still, I enjoyed it, even if it wasn't a stand-out or as good as the rest of the season, but hey, 'bottle' episodes rarely are.

And the preview for next week? Without spoiling, I'll just say SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
