White Collar > White Collar Midseason Report Card: A- > Comments Page 2
Season 4 has been really GOOD so far. I agree with the others that the less Sara the better or NO SARA at all would be best!!!. IMO this season is feeling alot like S1. (I hope the 2 Sara episodes to come will not mess that up. I don't care about her story.) I liked Alex, Sophie and Maya interacting with Neal and enjoyed them so much. Wouldn't mind seeing any one of them again. Really enjoy Peter and Neal's maturing in their friendship. Like Treat Williams alot as Sam/James, but just sad that they killed off Ellen/Judith Ivey.
I love season 4 so far. And the less Sara the better.
I enjoyed the start of Season 4, with Diminishing Returns as my favorite, loved Neal and Peter in the "Yard". Ancient History second favorite. Love having a smart and sexy female character. She conned them all this time. Hope to see Gloria Votsis back in Season 5. Another favorite was "Gloves Off, don't like boxing, but I enjoyed the episode. I like the daddy storyline, Treat is great. I DISLIKE the Sara Ellis character from the first episode she was intro'd and am one of the long time fans who would be happy if she NEVER came back.
I personally don't love the daddy storyline,but I would endure it cos I love the show..and no more sara,bring back ALEX...
I would give the season a B I think very entertaining but not its best. I do agree that we need to sere more Sara, I love her and her ineraction with everyone. I do wish they would tone down the mistrust between Peter and Neal, not much of that every season.Neals father was probably my least favorite part of the season, not sure why but i dont really care for it.

They're really just repeating the storyline from season 1-2. The episodes are entertaining, yes, but rarely interesting. A lot of setup, but no fallout. The only positive thing about this first half is that they've stopped forcing Sara into the storylines.
A little too lenient on the grading... B- in my books
The writing of the episodes this season are getting a little lazy, especially when compared to the fantastic second half of season 3. While I agree that Identity Crisis was one of the better episodes of the season so far, the beginning of the episode was so bogged down my exposition and pointless dialogue that I almost turned off the TV.
Most of the main conflict has just been retreading the trust issues between Peter and Neal from Season 3. The whole season, I have the feeling that we had seen or done it all before. Season 4 needs its own identity, so hopefully the revelation of Neal's dad will be a launchpad for Season 4.5.
The best episode in my books was Wanted. A breathe of fresh air with a new location, excellent new characters, while still balancing the two-faced personality of Neal within a new context. Personally, I wished they had dragged out the island storyline further.
I agree that it has been one heck of the summer run and with overall grade A-, but I strongly disagree with the best list. 'Identity crisis' was typical filler episode, just empty comedy; everybody guessed that Sam was Neal's father, and I'm sorry but about 50% of fans hope never to see Sara again. These and Peter's quick judgement are exactly the things that add - to A.
I think you were far too generous with the rating.
The first two episodes were a massive let-down, especially the way Peter led the FBI right to Neil's location. The fact that Neil & Mozzie couldn't figure out they were being protected by a powerful fugitive was also a bit out of character.
Peter's demotion at the FBI was resolved far too quickly, with seemingly NO long-term consequences. In fact, the whole storyline of Neil going into hiding at the end of last season was somehow rendered completely irrelevant.
There was improvement in the later episodes, but I do think the revelation of Neil's father was a bit too obvious.
I'd place the rating at the C+ or B- range.
