    Remember that 4400 left off with a great cliffhanger. It had that 50/50 drug hitting the streets. It had an equal chance of either killing you or granting you a random super power.

    Plus 4400 still has Summer Glau as a hot mind controller. Much hotter than even Eden on Heroes. Plus Isabelle (who could kick Syler’s backside) lose her powers, but will she get them back?

  2. says

    Looking forward to its return this summer, but Summer Glau may not be returning because of her obligation to the new Sarah Connor Chronicles series that will be coming soon on Fox. She will be a nasty Terminator on this one — or will she be the good one? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks for the heads up on the R2D2 frappr map. I just went and added the mailbox I snapped a photo of here in Philly.

    Martin Wood is amazing. He is a super genius. I love his sense of aesthetic. Sanctuary is hot – this looks so cool
