Critic reviews for The Candidate

I find that the action sequences of Season 4 thus far have taken a considerable shift in tone with more quips and lighter attitudes from our heroes...

If it weren't for that major death hinted at last week, I'd be concerned this season was going to be spent transforming our characters into respectable, mature adults.
