Not too bad, but not great either.,
This review is from: The Tribe - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
There were several things about this series of the tribe that I did enjoy, but there was also much that I didn't. We shall begin with the positives. The return of Salene (albeit without Ryan) and her development from a rather wet character, into a very strong willed leader of the mallrats alongside Pride. They had a wonderful run in this series and were one of my main reasons for continuing to watch. The dynamic between Ebony and her sisters was also interesting, and Ram was a nice (more fun) change from the Guardian, although the whole idea of the technos is rather far fetched, even for the tribe.
In my review of the first series, I mentioned that the tribe is a show that requires much suspension of belief. I was able to do that for the first three series, but at this point it became too much. Children flying planes? The lazer zappers and being 'deleted' the disappearances of even more characters? It all became too much. In this series, nearly half of the original cast is gone in the very first episode, with Jack leaving again soon after, then the departure of Ellie and Cloe (who mysteriously vanishes like so many others).
It is a great shame because the climax at the end of series three was great, but the execution in this series just doesn't live up to it in any way. Still, it isn't entirely unwatchable and there are some good additions to the cast. It is also unfortunate that series five got even worse.
