Like David Bird said. They crammed too much into the season. You have Angel recovering from Conner burying him alive, Lilah taking over W&H, the Beast making his debut, the Beast laying siege to W&H, Angel becoming Angelus, and Cordy being revealed to be evil while killing Lilah. That's just the first twelve freaking episodes.
There's too much going on and not enough time to register this all. One minute you got one big bad. Then the other second you have another. It's like S6 of 24. They crammed so much in those episodes that they blew their wad and didn't have anything left to resonate with the viewer. Add horrible character moments and that's why people hate both seasons of both shows. I mean yeah it's better than most tv, but still S4 was the worse.
