Critic Reviews for Brockmire Season 4

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Hank Azaria has added layers of regret and realism to Jim Brockmire, a strategy that pays off, especially in his scenes with love interest Amanda Peet, one of our most underrated comic actors. The result: an out-of-the-park home run.

Dec 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Season 4 finds the ideal line between evoking both the debauchery of his past and squaring one man's outsized legend with his more understanding current form.

Mar 19, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Delivered by Azaria with splendid aplomb, the new season demonstrates how important the actual presence of baseball - as engaged in on the field or seen from the announcer's booth - has been to the show.

Mar 19, 2020 | Full Review…

The fourth season of Brockmire is actually a tremendous slice of speculative satire, a companion piece of sorts to Idiocracy in its commentary on the descent of human intellect, our inevitable surrender to encroaching technology...

Mar 18, 2020 | Full Review…

There is something so fundamentally ridiculous about this man and his world that it still feels miraculous how deeply felt Azaria's performance can be, and how much Jim's personal relationships wind up mattering.

Mar 17, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Even if Brockmire had never assumed any of these ambitions, let alone followed through on them, it would still be one of the funniest shows on television on a line-by-line, scene-by-scene basis.

Mar 12, 2020 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Brockmire the show is great specifically because Brockmire the character tries and fails repeatedly to do right.

Mar 20, 2020 | Full Review…

This imagined dystopia is no longer amusing... But we're glad to have "Brockmire" back anyway, retooled as a story of a man trying to raise a daughter (Reina Hardesty) going off to college.

Mar 18, 2020 | Full Review…

The final arc of his story takes a surprisingly comprehensive approach, one that covers an impressive span of time, but is nevertheless able to see the series come to a fulfilling conclusion.

Mar 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Together, the "Sid and Nancy of baseball" hit it out of the park. And now that the sport's actual Opening Day has been postponed because of a national emergency that might leave even Jim Brockmire speechless, how can you resist?

Mar 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Every season of Brockmire has been a homerun, but this concluding year is an epic grand slam that solidifies this series' place in the comedy hall of fame.

Audience Reviews for Brockmire: Season 4

  • Feb 03, 2021
    Brockmire needed more seasons
  • Nov 09, 2020
    A stark contrast from the quality of the first 3 seasons. Season 4 is set in the dystopian future from what i can understand is to tell the story of jim being a dad but it seemed like a dream that shouldve come back to reality. Its still somewhat worth watching but disappointing considering how good the show was getting

    Brockmire was once a very funny show about an anachronistic baseball announcer fighting the demons that many from his era experienced while trying to fit into the modern world. His alcoholism, sexism, drug addiction, and marital infidelity constantly clashed with the Internet era's ability to capture everything on video, publish it, and be terminally offended by it. Yet somehow, his brash attitude and his love of baseball led him to successes despite the fact that he had no business being successful. I truly enjoyed the first few seasons.. then something happened. Perhaps Hank Azaria had some underlying guilt for playing Apu on the Simpsons with such a strong Indian accent for 30 years, or perhaps he just fell into the modern Hollyweird trap of far left political ideology… but the show not only jumped the shark, it blew past it in a rocket ship, dropped napalm on the shark, and landed in a different galaxy. Instead of a show about an old fashioned baseball announcer trying to cope in the modern world, we ended up with a ridiculously self righteous, allegorical, dystopian parable about the dangers of climate change, gun ownership, capitalism, wealth, conservative views and technology. I mean, seriously…who wrote this crap? Rachael Maddow? Chris Matthews? Is this MSNBC fan fiction? I haven't seen a show go so off the rails since the Game of Thrones writers dared each other if they could make the entire globe hate them at once. The only saving grace for this season is that it ended the series. It was really sad to see politics destroy something I enjoyed, yet again, but I'm glad we don't have to suffer through another season where they probably planned to have the Constitution gain sentience and start murdering Black Americans while they screamed "Hands up Don't Shoot" ..because that's about how subtle the liberal messaging was this season. UGH.. Zero Stars for destroying a pretty good show.

    Season 4 took a pretty big turn from the previous season(s).
  • Apr 30, 2020
    Great season though a it wired. Better than season 3.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    Crass and funny (especially the early seasons).
  • Apr 11, 2020
    Never a great show - a solid four stars in previous seasons - but a show always worth watching. I cannot think of any show that has gotten so downright horrible in its final season - its not funny - it's sophomoric in the worst possible way - Hank Azaria took a funny premise - sportscaster becomes Baseball Commissioner and turned it into an absolute disaster - After the scene of Hank urinating on a baseball owner I decided to reluctantly give up on a once fun show that is now a complete dog
