The war for the future is taking too long to start

At this point, I’m just watching The 4400 to see how the overall storyline unfolds. This season started out really well, but half-way through, it started to drag.

I wasn’t all that fond of the freak-of-the-week format of last season, and I like the mythology of the show. But man — pick up the pace.

The twists in the plot of tonight’s episode, "Terrible Swift Sword", felt really anti-climactic. Yeah, I didn’t really see Jordan Collier’s ultimate plan either, but the whole build-up to it just felt pedestrian.

I’m prety sure I’ll be tuning in next season to see what happens, but this show is falling off my appointment viewing.
