A Lump Of Coal For Christmas

Well, the guy at TVGuide said it best: USA Network is delivering its viewers two lumps of coal for Christmas.

It seems that the NBC/Universal cable network is cancelling The Dead Zone after six seasons, and The 4400 after four.

Both have been great continuing sagas that have the Youngs glued to the television on Sunday nights.

The Dead Zone is based upon characters created by Stephen King in his wonderful novel of the same name. The movie version starred Christopher Walken as Johnny Smith, Brooke Adams as his love interest, and a chilling Martin Sheen as Greg Stillson. My autographed version of the novel, which I got when I was 18 and a senior in high school, is one of my prized possessions.

The 4400 is a quirky sci-fi vehicle about the return of over four thousand missing people who had been transported to the future, and returned with special abilities to save it.

They will be missed in our household.
