Critic Reviews for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 4

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

If you removed the supernatural elements from this show, it would be the most honest and poignant teen drama on TV.

November 17, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Overall, the season was a bit of a mess, albeit it's easy to see why.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Although Buffy's fourth season made admirable steps towards moving the show away from the trappings of high school and into the adult world, it had too many stumbles to rank very high in the show's impressive canon.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

People didn't like this one, but I really liked what it tried to do. Bringing in the Initiative as a patriarchal military organization trying to exploit forces they didn't understand, and having the Slayer set things right was compelling

This season is often surprising.

November 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Season four is a bit uneven at times, but Hush is a Buffy fairytale - and that's a genre that looks especially good on this genre-mashing series.
