Season 4 Review
Grades for every character below
A note on spoilers: this post does not spoil anything significant, but does make oblique references to basic story lines from the show. Purists: approach with caution.
Many television shows peak somewhere in season two or three (ex: NBC's The Office), when the writers have established a rhythm but haven’t run out of ideas. Bad shows peak even earlier (ex: ABC’s ill-fated Last Resort, a show that wheezed its way to cancellation after only one strong episode). The best shows, however, get better with age (ex: AMC's Breaking Bad), refining the formula, correcting mistakes, and upending audience expectations.

What Croaked: overly nihilistic every once in awhile
See It Now: see ASAP
See It: see if you have time
Skip It: see at your own risk
Forget It: avoid at all costs
