After Season 3, which most fans and critics consider the best of all 5 seasons, the expectations for Season 4 were extremely and unfairly high. Also, Cybill Sheperd's pregnancy kept her from putting in more than a few cameos for several months, and a Hollywood strike disrupted many network shows. As a result, Season 4 was short (only 14 episodes), had long gaps between new episodes, and had too many episodes in which David and/or Maddie had very little screen time. Which meant an increased presence of Herbert Viola and Miss DiPesto, something that not all fans thought was consistently a good thing.
Despite these obstacles, Season 4 managed to bring some of that Moonlighting magic that fans love, and remains better than most television, despite being perhaps the weakest season of Moonlighting.
Season 4 continued the Moonlighting tradition of lots of great music and great guest stars, including: Ray Charles, Dr Joyce Brothers, John Goodman, Pat Boone, and Terry O'Quinn (the guy that plays John Locke on "Lost").
In a very strong episode, David butts heads with Maddie's overprotective father, well-played by Robert Webber, who was in the original "12 Angry Men", and a guest on such shows as Rockford Files, Outer Limits (the original), Ironside, and Kojak.
Another great Season 4 episode is "Fetal Attraction", in which David takes a Lamaze class with foxy future single mom Brooke Adams (who was also in Frasier, Thirtysomething, Kojak, Police Woman, and the Lords of Flatbush).Read more ›
There are a few good points, though, such as the "Honeymooners" homage in the first episode. We get more DiPesto and Viola, both of whom I find charming.Read more ›
A Trip to the Moon - the season opener features a great Honeymooners parody, David declaring his love for Maddie to the office, and one of my favorite scenes of the series in a laundromat.
Come Back Little Shiksa - David trashes Maddie's BMW to Jimi Hendrix while working on a case with Bert that parallels his own situation. Look for the claymation scene that has Bruce and Cybill's characteristics down to a tee.
Fetal Attraction - David asks Bert to be his Lamaze partner, then meets Terri and tells her about him and Maddie.
Father Knows Last - A fan favorite! Mr. Hayes comes to find out David's attentions towards Maddie. The scene on the airplane where David declares his love for Maddie to her father may be Bruce's best scene in the entire series.
Tracks of My Tears - David and Maddie's reunion! Love the look on Bruce's face as he hugs her. But first, we get the great "Body Heat" dream sequence between them.
Maddie Hayes Got Married - One of my personal favorites! David throws a wedding for Maddie, Bert fills in as the stripper at Maddie's intended's bachelor party, and a madcap scene at the hospital where Maddie and David go at each other while Terri gives birth.
And the Flesh Was Made Word - A great season ender, which was cut short by a writers' strike. Watch Maddie chase David for a change! The real Moonlighting writers fill up the short episode, dancing with their picket signs as Bert sings the Wooly Bully!
All in all, a good season that finished strong!
