Reception

The Fourth Season garners positive reviews from critics. It earned a 100 % approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with an average rating of 7. 1 out of 10. Mark Trammell of TV Equals comments on how savvy the show was this time around. Caroline Framke of AV Club comments on how the show's focus on shocking moments is more appealing than the big picture, writing It might have been fun at one point, but trying to keep track of who's in or out with is exhausting exercise that rarely yield satisfying results anymore. Framke commented further but thing about Pretty Little Liars is that when it's good, it is a fever dream. It's at its most fun when it breezes past the big picture, gets lost in its own illusions, and lets talking parrot steal the spotlight.
