Review: The Dead Zone 401 – 406

Season 3 ended with a bang, leaving season 4 a hard one to follow. This show has always proven to be a rich character and story driven show, so the season opener came somewhat as a surprise. The following episodes proved the slam in the face was a real one.
I have no idea what the Piller family is thinking, but it feels like a cheap way out. With one episode, they cut all the storylines short. The new episodes are, while still well written, back to the “normal” episodic formula. No hightened tension because of an intense background story, no continuing character development, but just another good series. It clearly lost its edge, so let’s hope the Pillers regain their sanity and start writing with their brains again soon.
