    As wonderful as Brockmire was over its first three seasons — hilariously vulgar yet also remarkably moving, featuring a career-best performance from Hank Azaria in the title role — this could be viewed as terrible timing for Season Four to premiere. But among the amazing accomplishments of these last eight episodes is how they wind up feeling oddly comforting for this strange and scary moment in which we all find ourselves.

    The one-liners still move at fastball speed, but the show’s sharpened political conscience has only made them land harder. ... It also remains a phenomenal showcase for Azaria, who, simply put, gives the best performance of his career.

    The fourth season of Brockmire is actually a tremendous slice of speculative satire, a companion piece of sorts to Idiocracy in its commentary on the descent of human intellect, our inevitable surrender to encroaching technology and tangible consequences of our disrespect of the environment. There are parts of this season that feel like a real heir to Kurt Vonnegut in terms of the blend of rampant silliness and earnest concern.

    Season 4 finds the ideal line between evoking both the debauchery of his past and squaring one man’s outsized legend with his more understanding current form.

    “Brockmire” is essentially sentimental — baseball stories nearly always are — and as it angles toward a happy ending, the machinery of the plot can get a little obvious, like an outside slider on a 1-2 count. You can also start to weary of Jules’s repeated and increasingly improbable willingness to forgive Brockmire for his outbursts and reversals. But you’ll probably stay for the dialogue, still an uncommon concoction of literate, clever and rancid.

It's embarrassing that the series has fallen so far from season 1. Instead of making a good show they insist upon making an SJW trash fest. Full Review »

This current season is terrible and clearly in the final throes of a a dying TV show. I was surprised how bad the first episode was but gave it a 2nd chance by revisiting it and bin watching the last 3 episodes. My first impression were right terrible. I'm glad its ending the sooner the better. I don't understand the high critic rating but in today's media everything is up for sale. waste of time Full Review »

    The show had two really good seasons 1 & 2. Three was ok, and 4 is well a 4 (out of 10). The daughter is a horribly uninteresting character.The show had two really good seasons 1 & 2. Three was ok, and 4 is well a 4 (out of 10). The daughter is a horribly uninteresting character. The series used to be sex, drugs, and baseball and it was fun. Now it is mainly about failing Major League Baseball, and it is major league boring. Full Review »
