It’s only going to take you about 2.5 seconds to realize that this post is not about Big Brother; I just needed an easy to get people to read. We love our reality shows here at TVgasm, but there are a bunch of us who enjoy some science fiction now and then. We still have a ways to go for the next season of Battlestar Galactica and Smallville has sort of become a joke (uh, sorry about that whole not recapping the season finale thing), but if you’re looking for a good SciFi fix, try The 4400 on USA Network. Most people know the story by now. 4400 people were presumed to be abducted by aliens, then returned for no reason. When they returned, we discovered that a lot of them have changed. And now we’re trying to sort out why. I would say more, but I don’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t seen it, because you will get a chance to catch up on all of the important episodes you missed on The 4400 Special: Unlocking the Secrets this Sunday, June 4th starting at 9AM EST/6AM PST.
The new season starts Sunday, June 11th, at 9PM EST.
But of course that’s not all. We also have a 4400 giveaway for you. Details after the jump.Now that you know the details of the new season (yes, I will be recapping), how about a giveaway to celebrate. We have a Season 1 DVD as well as a 4400 T-shirt to giveaway to TVgasm readers. Entering the giveaway is simple. Last time we did a giveaway for The 4400, I asked TVgasm readers what music they would like to listen to if they were abducted by aliens. I was thinking of telling people that to do the What’s Your 4400 Ability Quiz, but that seems a little lame. Then again, I don’t have much of an imagination right now. So, in the spirit of unoriginality, let’s do movies instead. This time, send an e-mail with the subject 4400 Contest to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body, tell about your favorite alien or space-themed movie and the reason for your choice. You can send in your entries until Monday, June 12th. The winner will win the Season 1 DVD as well as the T-shirt.
There are too many good alien and space-themed movies to choose from, but I would say my favorites are Alien, Alien 3, The Last Starfighter, Species, and of course, Serenity. So, I guess give me your top five if you can’t decide on one.
