FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 24, 2006
The newest 4400 Fan of the Week, Audra L., isn't too fond of reality TV, and found The 4400 to be a perfect outlet from the tedium everyday life. Her only complaint is that the show only comes on in the summer! She calls her desired power "Instant Karma": the ability to provide instant reward or punishment for someone's actions. Sounds like a good idea for a song....
Here is her entry:
If there was any drawback to this show it's that it's on in the summer instead of during the regular lineup. This show is a powerhouse and deserves to be recognized. It's much better than the usual fall lineup!
I think the reason the show appeals to me is because I've often wished for some sort of ability. I've thought long and hard about it and my ability would be instant karma. That is, when in the presence of others I would have the ability to provide instant karma to them based on their actions.
Really, really bad actions means a really, really bad outcome and the opposite would be true as well. Those who were truly caring and kind would be rewarded for their good deeds. For the record my power would be only to make the karma happen, I wouldn't be able to choose what the reaction would be, the karma would make it directly proportionate to the action.
However, the drawback to this power would be that I'd be both judge and jury and that kind of power can go to a person's head. Who am I to say that a person deserves any form of retribution or praise? It's very rare that we see the whole picture and know why people act the way they do. I could be dishing karma to a person who'd just been through the worst day of their life, perhaps after losing a loved one. But I would have no way of knowing. It would make for an interesting show though with plenty of lessons to be learned!
