Review: The 4400 201 – 205

USA Network has a pretty strong, if not the strongest, summer schedule slated, and it contains new seasons of Monk and The Dead Zone. Also started is a second season of The 4400, originally just a one time 6 episode mini series. Well written and developed as it was, it would hold up as a mini series, but expansion was another possibility. And well into season 2 it shows the producers have a lot more coming our way to make this a special series on it own. Most notable names on the production staff are of course Ira Steven Behr and Rene Echevarria, and results are well written stand alone episodes combined with story arch continuation. Mystery, drama, action, and a thought provoking view of the world makes this as unique as their previous endeavors (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine). The way the bigger story unfolds, it looks like a few more years of this one of a kind show is a high probability.
