    At some point, however -- and that point is the first episode in this fourth season -- it all becomes too much, too arch, too ridiculous and trying and forced. Worse, perhaps, is the sense that not enough effort has been put in, not enough of the tightrope-walking brilliance of the first three seasons shines through.

    Melhorou um pouco em relação à 3° temporada. Destaque para o 5°Melhorou um pouco em relação à 3° temporada. Destaque para o 5° episódio, no qual Michael C. Hall atua como ninguém. Era o gás que a série precisava. Sem falar em Frances Conroy sempre roubando a cena. Expand
