Went blog surfing this evening and found Tightly Wound's intriguing thoughts about last week's episode of The 4400
. If you're a fan of the show, as I am, you might want to give them a read. Also, I feel her pain at over-analyzing things and maybe ruining part of the enjoyment. But curse you, Joss Whedon, you did this to me! You made Buffy, Angel
all so imminently analyzable, that it's carried over to other aspects of my life!
Also, some of her early comments remind me a lot of things that have been said to me by my good friend, Leslie W from Knoxville, who as far as I know does not yet have a blog.
Anyway, back to The 4440
. In watching this week's episode on tape, my mom came up with an interesting notion--what if Billy Campbell's character is not one of those taken, but is, instead, trying to somehow profit off the returnees? Or he's bringing them together to expose them? Or his motives just aren't as pure and noble as he claims they are? Now, that's an interesting idea. I wish I'd thought of it!
