4400, Season 2 trading cards
This is an 81 card basic set. Card one has a brief introduction to the series on the back of the card.
Six of the main characters from the series. Ryland was the one you loved to hate. I thought Diana was a pretty neat character. Maia was probably the hardest one to write for, trying to figure out just how much she knew of future events.
Six more characters. Shawn was very interesting with his tremendous healing abilities. The series became very complicated, though, with Jordan and his 4400 center, Isabelle and her role as hit-person for some future clique, the shooting of Collier, Promise City and the like. The thing was that all of these things that happened were very much depressing types of things.
The show seemed to lack humor of any kind. It was a matter of what bad thing is going to happen this week, who will be involved, and will we ever find out just what the factions are from the future. In that way the series was a little like Millenium, which started off as a really interesting series but became mired in its own conspiracy/who's running things theme. When that type of thing goes on week after week after week, and you don't have really interesting characters, then you enthusiasm for the show weakens.
I compare this to, say, Warehouse 13 and Eureka. Both concern some series matters, but both have a lot of humor worked into the shows and both have some really interesting, stand-out characters. (My favorite in Warehouse 13 is Claudia.) The tension of events at least gets lessened for a little bit before the really serious stuff starts happening again.
More of the returnees. I think Alana was a great character and I was sorry to see her taken off the show. Trent has the problem of reminding me of his doctor role from Voyager.
There are six cards titled Collier's Destiny. The backs of the cards discuss the 4400 center and what Collier was doing. There was a cult-like status to the group, and things got a lot worse when they started giving regular people promicin.
The back of these three cards discuss Maya and Isabelle.
The next group features couples from the series. Tom and Diana might have worked out, but it wasn't meant to be. Richard and Lily showed that an integrated couple can be subjected to some very terrible events and still their love for each other stays strong. Diana's sister was an interesting character.
A liked the Alana character quite a bit. I liked Shawn but I never really cared very much for Kyle as a character. He carried himself sort of like a teenage delinquent.
Three more of the couples. I always felt sort of sorry for Marco. Successful romance just didn't seem to come his way.
A few of these cards are about one of my favorite episodes, the one with Summer Glau in it and people building a mysterious tower.
The backs of the cards are carrying brief descriptions of specific episodes.
The descriptions continue.
The episode with Tom going into the future was interesting. The overall situation, both for individual characters and for society as a whole, continues to worsen.
More summaries as the government wants to quarantine all the 4400 again.
More events as it becomes evident that the police are looking for Kyle.
