Looks like they filmed it all together this time no? Can't wait im actually more excited for this than the long absence between the last 2 seasons.

Was it any good? Did the whole season get swept under the rug of the scandal during the press run, or was it just forgettable to begin with?

There were few things that I loved more than the first three seasons, but I’m not certain I even made it through the fourth. And just the idea that I might have to revisit that season to be caught up for the new one has made me wary of diving in.

It's still on my watch list, but yeah, I feel like it has fallen off of everyone else's list.

For a show that I definitely considered the funniest show on television, I'm seeing tumble weeds now.

I don't even think it was that bad press run that did it. I just think the lackluster 4th season (which really wasn't that bad) made most people stop caring about the show.
730629, i watched the last two seasons (or season and a half) and stopped caring

i was surprised how great alia shawkat was though. but if you can't have all of your actors together for a lot of scenes, then honestly just stop
730632, They did remix 4, and I'm half through 5

If you're an AD fan, it's still quite funny and well written. As funny as S1 or S2? Not quite, but S3 or better. Didn't care for Tambor or Arnett's character arc, but to each his own. The Howard family had fun though...

The remix is...weird. A lot of cuts, split screens to tie scenes together but it works. Kind of. It's closer to a linear episode, but I'm not exactly sure it makes it better than the single character based episodes the way it was originally shot and shown. Makes some of the running gags and story beats tie together a little easier, but not necessarily better
730640, Still haven't watched it

After watching S4 I'm afraid to watch it. S1 & 2 is GOAT tier comedy, and S3 was great for the most part, I just want to leave it at that.
