well, I can't say I quite like buffy... I watched it though... for the only reason a 14/15 year old would watch that show... I'm shallow too :P
loved 4400 (JEFFREY COMBS! :P), it was SO much better than heroes, just because this show didn't go like "Ow, I got a secret, got to keep it a secret so everybody gets pissed at me about the fact that I keep a secret, although, it would be MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH wiser to just share the secret, and get help and acceptation!"
I hate that, that was what happened in lost. One guy found something, kept his mouth shut... YOU'RE ON A FRAKKING ISLAND! :P with 30 other people, the last thing you need is a SECRET!
that's what was so good about the dead zone. Not that shabby style writing of keeping his gift a secret, that was impossible, that was not the point!
that's also what's wrong with (at least the first season) of dexter, he's a serial killer that NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT!.... Enough shows about secrets already! :P
