Night of the Hawk
Critic Consensus: Guest director Joe Dante of Gremlins fame adds some welcome visual pizzaz to "Night of the Hawk," but even he can't quite cover some of the more glaring narrative convolutions.

Critic reviews for Night of the Hawk
Well, the writers know, but these three characters definitely don't.
Gremlins' Joe Dante is at the helm (yes, you read that correctly) and it's almost entirely devoid of action until the last few scenes, which is a-okay since it features some of the show's most fun character scenes to date.
There are a metric ton of Back to the Future jokes in the episode. No surprise, given how openly nerdy everyone has already proven to be.
It even found more success than previous installments in trying to add romantic drama. But Crump's underwhelming performance and the sense that the show's plot is just spinning in circles prevented this episode from being all it could be.
