Season should have been shorter
on August 28, 2013
Seasons 1-3 were FANTASTIC, although I know a lot of this show is quite a stretch.
Season 4 is sooooo longgggggg. Episode after episode after episode of being chased, secret meetings, shady characters, guns, killings, over and over and over again. On top of that there continues to be amazing feats of escape as the genius lead character continues to perform McGyver-like technical miracles that allow our characters to escape numerous places in the nick of time. Add to that his ability yet again to decode all those secret codes that appear all over the place. And it all begins to look more and more like a really bad "B" movie, complete with bad writing, stereotypical villians and menacing music.
However, the last episode redeemed the season, and I hear the straight-to-DVD movie is good and closes up some holes in the story.
The 3 stars are only for season 4. 5 stars overall.
