Critic Reviews for Pretty Little Liars Season 4

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Masquerade is an ancient trope-Shakespeare used it, as did Zorro!-so it's intriguing to see it implemented in this very modern story, supplemented by other forms of hiding in plain sight.

Pretty Little Liars is that when it's good, it is a fever dream. It's at its most fun when it breezes past the big picture, gets lost in its own illusions, and lets a talking parrot steal the spotlight.

Well, we're back to Rosewood after an agonizing hiatus, and already, I'm back to knowing absolutely nothing about what is going on.

No real answers, but I was impressed by how savvy the show was this time around.

Jan 8, 2014 | Full Review…

It was a fun episode, with lots of creeptastic moments that are de rigueur for the Halloween episodes of the show.

Oct 23, 2013 | Full Review…

For a teen drama, Pretty Little Liars has always edged on the mature side, and the season four premiere keeps this trend going in a big way.

Sep 21, 2013 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

I'm usually on the edge of my seat, but aside from a few smaller moments and interesting turns in dialogue, not much was worthwhile.

Sep 9, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I thought it was really smart to remind viewers of what got us hooked on the show. With all the crazy, implausible twists, retconned revelations and constant stream of newcomers, I was happy to be reminded of the things I enjoyed in the beginning.

Audience Reviews for Pretty Little Liars: Season 4

  • Aug 09, 2018
    This season was the best by far of what I've watched. Finished it in less than 5 days...
  • Jan 29, 2016
    A Great show! Defiantly lives up to the first three seasons
  • Jun 19, 2015
    What a drag this season was. I was almost always multitasking while watching it.
  • Jul 05, 2014
    It's definetly my favorite season, the halloween special was spooky and the story of some characters were incredible
  • Jun 09, 2014
    low and behold the hit TV series gets right back up on its feet after a middling 3rd season that showed a genuine lack of excitement and intrigue the writers have gone back to the spirit of Season 1 everything that made the series work from the insane plot twists to the hidden clues to the unexpected reveals comes back for the viewers' pleasure I was so happy that things picked up again this time around familiar secrets pop up, dozens of familiar faces show themselves once more, darker revelations take hold, the drama tugs at your heartstrings more than it did before, and after an immense buildup one half of the biggest unsolved mystery is laid to rest at last of course the other half involves tracking down and unmasking A once and for all the danger will increase and it looks as though there wont be a single person to trust in Rosewood ever again the script still does its job by providing a chockfull of laughs amidst all the chaos A has conjured up and by making our 4 main leads as dynamic as possible these girls are basically the embodiment of the teenage angst and that's why the show has its fanbase and ever-loving support there's also a special-themed episode that caught my eye and it quite the treat to watch 4 seasons in and this show still has me hooked and connected to these characters what does the future hold for them? is A gonna be one step ahead of them as always? can their lives ever go back to normal? and more importantly, will the other half of the main plot mystery be solved and wrap everything up? looks like there will be more to explore for the PLLs because A is still calling the shots
  • Jun 07, 2014
    Season $ is probably the best season so far. I loved how many answers we gotten and how many more questions we have developed in the process. Season % better bring on the action just like season 4 did.
