Topic: Spoiler in show description - wtf?

Haven't watched this in a while but I was just browsing through the shows and read through this description:
""The 4400" tells the stories of 4,400 abductees after they are returned to earth, but they ended up being abducted by people from the future to save mankind. In the words of the executive producers, these are stories of people dealing with traumatic changes, driven by the mystery of what happened and why."

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's well into the second or third season by the time you find out they were abducted by people from the future. I'd actually totally forgotten that part, so much for doing the re-watch any time soon!

Just thought I'd point this out as that could really spoil it for people who haven't seen it before, I thought the mystery of wtf happened to them was a great part of it and I think it'd kinda ruin it knowing that from the start.

Re: Spoiler in show description - wtf?

I dunno if this is considered a spoiler, because the show is rather old. And when you want to watch a new show you might want to see what it is all about. Since The 4400 started as a mini-series with no plan for the further future and it got picked up for many seasons I guess it's ok.
Oh - and if somebody sees this forum he might have read the show discription already wink

The 4400" tells the stories of 4,400 abductees, who mysteriously disappeared in the course of the last 80 years, after they are returned to earth. Yet they are about to find out, that something has changed in them. Histories about superheroes are about to come true.

How about that? No copy-paste, I've just thought of it. smile

I thought the descriptions came from TV.com.?
