While the first three seasons of Wizards of Waverly PlaceBTSW were well received, the final season of the show received mixed to negative reviews from both fans and critics alike.

Bad Qualities

  1. The series went from a comedic, heartwarming, silly, lighthearted, and yet, charming sitcom, to a bland, dull, generic, aggravating, dark, and downright serious sitcom with redundant plots and barely any funny moments whatsoever.
  2. Most of the characters have been flanderizedLCW horribly, with some being flat out unlikable:
    • Alex is changed from an optimistic, confident, charismatic, and yet, an interesting character, to a stereotypical jerk, who screams a lot and abuses her best friend, Harper, in many episodes.LCW
    • Justin is changed from a voice of reason-type character to a cliched scientist and flat out nerd-type character, who's only there whenever Alex gets too much screen time.
    • Max is changed from a funny, laid-back, and yet, kind-hearted and dimwitted character with slight intelligence, to an annoying, aggravating, arrogant, jerky, and a too dumb to live-type character, who's only there for comedic purposes only, much like Patrick Star from Seasons 6-8 of SpongeBob SquarePants.
  3. Overuse of fart jokes, something that the first three seasons clearly lacked.
  4. The laugh track now overplays at the unfunniest lines in the show.
  5. There are little-to-no connections to the previous seasons, except for the family wizard plot.
  6. The sound effects are now painful to listen to.
  7. The spells range from very creative to cheap looking and look more like fireballs. Also, they are barely even used.
  8. The episodes have bland and generic plots. For example, the episode, Rock Around the Clock, involves the Russos saving the Sub Station after finding out that the owner of the building wants to sell it, and the episode Harperalla, revolves around Harper getting trapped into a Cinderella-like world after reading one of Alex's story books. Seriously, this isn't even a Disney movie! And another episode "Wizards vs. Asteroid" involves an asteroid heading for Earth, and treating to wipe out humanity. Not only is that unoriginal, it has no resemblance to the franchise whatsoever. Seriously, you could wipe that episode from existence, and it won't affect the franchise! (Sigh!)
  9. Very slow and lazy pace.
  10. The theme song was cut short.

Good Qualities

  1. Some of the humor is still pretty funny.
  2. The season does introduce an interesting idea with Max being transformed into a little girl.
  3. The action scenes are still pretty good.
  4. Some good episodes, such as the episode, Wizards vs. Everything, and the series finale, Who Will Be the Family Wizard.
