Critic Reviews for Episodes (US) Season 4

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

This brand of satire is particularly timely. And thanks to actors and writers who deserve much more notice than they've gotten to this point, Episodes also is extremely, wonderfully funny.

More of the same from Episodes: nothing dire, but nothing particularly clever or original either. Once again, the humour was largely supposed to be found in Matt LeBlanc playing a wildly exaggerated version of himself, but this send-up is growing tired.

Episodes remains funny -- occasionally, very much so -- after all these years (it's beginning its fourth season).

The fourth season has returned to leave the good taste of mouth that left the previous ones. [Full Review in Spanish]

It has Joey from Friends in the shape of Matt LeBlanc, playing himself, Matt, as an older, greyer and slappably unwiser version of Joey from Friends! It has Tamsin Greig! And Kathleen Rose Perkins! And it's really underwhelming!

May 29, 2015 | Full Review…

There's that blunt honestly, mixed with the dry British humor I've missed these last few months!

Jan 12, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While it may not be the biting satire the show was in its early seasons, there is enough substance here for fans of the construct to remain happily tuned in.

Jan 12, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It's LeBlanc playing a version of himself that's the real draw here. In his best Episodes, he is the cable-friendly counterpart to Curb Your Enthusiasm curmudgeon Larry David.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Episodes no longer jars between feeling like a UK or US show, but is a thing of its own. And it's somehow looser, broader, dafter and certainly ruder.

The new season thus showcases both the program's strengths and inherent weaknesses, alternating between feeling clever and tired.

Audience Reviews for Episodes (US): Season 4

  • Apr 17, 2018
    I have some good news for you if the third season left you disappointed. Though season 4 has to deal with the repercussions of its predecessor, so that two full episodes fall victim to the damage, it's definitely up to scratch with the first two seasons. From the third episode on, the writers provide some really good material again. It seemed as if they had already covered all events that could possibly happen but the storyline is a pleasant surprise. Many of the characters I previously called obnoxious are finally properly tied into the series and become integral parts. Although this season is less predictable and repetitive than the previous ones, do I feel that some subplots are still introduced or abandoned too quickly, making some characters' motivations and intents less credible. All in all, I am looking forward to the final season and am optimistic, it will not be anything like disappointing season 3.

    Season 4 sees the series back on track and in fine form. Some great plotlines and the humour is as biting as ever. Kathleen Rose Perkins steals the show, once again, as Carol. Every expression and action of hers is spot-on. Great physical comedy.

    I enjoyed this series so much - Matt LeBlanc is fantastic. I binged it!

    This is the first good thing that and of the Friends have ever been involved in. Yes, the first.

    This is the ONLY good thing that any of the "friends" have done since "Friends" ended.
