It was high time for a Scooby episode, but "Cat's Cradle" was slow and especially un-informational if you've been paying strong attention to the clues.
It seems like each character gets a maximum of two episodes in Season 4, so it makes me sad that this one is probably G.O.B.'s last.
"Queen B." was more of the same for Season 4, but at the very least, we got to see things from a new perspective.
Maybe the yawn-worthy episodes that've followed "Colony Collapse" are supposed to serve as breathers until we get to something with a little more meat to it?
I know I said I wanted more of Lindsay's story, but this episode was a mess.
"A Is for A-L-I-V-E" was a fairly mediocre season opener; beyond a couple small developments, the new dynamic doesn't have much heft, and Liars don't have any new goals to pursue.
"Colony Collapse" was certainly the best episode of the season thus far. I feel like I'm saying that for every episode as we progress, but now it feels almost silly to compare the others to this one.
We've compiled a handy guide to the fandom's most commonly used terms and our in-house PLL speak, to make it easier to follow both the show and our reviews.
This episode that convinced me that the new season is finally hitting its stride.
At the risk of sounding like a blowhard, I think this episode worked in a way many others so far haven't.
Overall, the first four episodes haven't lived up to the hype... but there's no way we're gonna stop watching.
Of the three episodes we've discussed so far, "Indian Takers" felt the most like the old Arrested Development, something that seems to be happening incrementally as the new season continues.
"Borderline Personalities" felt much more in-line with the series we all remember, as the episode was able to break away from constantly setting up new material and comfortably tell its story.
Even though I was slightly turned off by the disjointedness of "Flight of the Phoenix" on my first pass, I ultimately embraced it.
