The writers’ strike-shortened season left fans with fewer episodes in the fourth season than they may have hoped for, but it didn’t leave them stranded. Ha, ha. Tangled up in mysteries, baffled by some serious time-zone changes, and casting about between changing hostilities and allegiances, yes—but not stranded. For fans who must watch the show in present-time, they’ll want this collection for return at a future date. For those are willing to wait to see what the future holds in a DVD set, so that they might skip commercial interruption and other incongruous interference and fully indulge in this perpetually twisting, turning adventure, their wait is over. You’ll just have to trust me on this.
