The 4400 and The Dead Zone Season Finales

It's been too long since my last post. Several series have ended their season, while others have begun new. The 4400 and the Dead Zone both had very good season finales. Neither was a cliffhanger, both seemed to tie-up allot of loose ends, The 4400 especially. Almost like they were preparing to not be renewed next season. Shawn's brother and mother both die, along with Isabelle. What they left open was who is really in charge, not just Seattle, but the world.

Call me a traditionalist, but I like to know who are the good guys, and who are the bad guys. I believe that some shows twist that up too much, and viewers lose interest. The 4400 was all over the map on that one, but I believe they cleared it up in the season finale. The 4400's are emerging as the good guys, and the U.S. Government as the bad guys. But there's plenty more that we don't know about the temporal warfare being waged.

The Dead Zone Season 6 finale also provided a bit of closure. We got a much deeper insight into Johnny's doomsday visions, and we discovered his father, played by an aging Tom Skerritt, was alive all this time. Unfortunately he dies. But the proof of Greg Stillson's corruption is finally out in the open. And JJ discovers he has a "dead zone". Is there a spin-off in the making?
