    Watched the first episode. Thought it was pretty good. Only thing that feels off is how much older George Michael and Maeby look, but there's nothing they can really do about that.

    Did anyone catch the Nickelback jab at around 7:30 of episode 1? Atleast I think it was one!

    First two episodes were fantastic. Kirsten Wiig as young Lucile is nothing short of incredible. Perfectly cast.

    Also, I want the portrait on the moving sidewalk from episode 1 SO badly.

    Alright. I renounce my cassandric naysaying. I was worried that it'd be difficult to recapture what made the show great, but they clearly haven't missed a beat.

    Also, the Smithsonian's weekly roundup of interesting historical/anthropological things this week includes the history of the frozen banana stand. Cute.

    The Tobias episode, #5, was classic AD. Definitely getting use to it again. What I'm enjoying most about the shows format is what is revealed from another characters story line in little pieces of each episode. Even more connections and running gags being set up then I'd imagine.

    I found the first two episodes to be slow, poorly paced and generally unfunny. The stories are interesting, I suppose, but there's no comedic timing. AD was never about good stories so this is really weird.

    Kirsten Wiig was great as young Lucille and Max was great as the young Barry.

    It's going to take a while to slog through these episodes unless they pick up.

    I think the Lindsey episode was when it really started to hit it's stride again. That's been my favorite episode so far.

    there is a great article in this months rolling stone about the production and how hard it was since many of the cast never actually filmed together. I believe the cast was only together as a whole twice during the 8 months of filming, with many scenes shot on green screen with the actors separately.

    So many inside jokes it's amazing. Im in Colorado and from all the ad agency people tha are transplants from LA that is all you hear about. it is how lavish the bruckheimer building is. I've never seen it but the way they spoof it sounds like everyone that has ever been "inside" of it. This show is fucking amazing.

    While I don't agree that it's quite this dire, I'm five episodes into the new season and my general feeling is that they're trying really hard to recapture the magic. The problem is that the first two seasons (and most of the third) made it seem effortless, and it's not quite as funny when you can see the exertion. I'm still laughing quite a bit, but the easiest comparison is to the newest season of Community. It's like they understand why the old episodes were funny, but that doesn't mean they can reproduce it in a new context.

    Gob's episode has been the best so far! Steve Holt hasn't aged well.

    This. All of this. I feel bad for Steve Holt... but holy crap the episode was hilarious. Probably the best so far.

    OK, now I'm 9 episodes in and it builds. It builds and it gets more and more insane. And you start to recognize some of the insane in the background.

    Episode 3 is the first that seemed to have any spark. Episode 5 was good. And I agree, Episode 7 with GOB (and Steve Holt) was hilarious.

    It seems different from seasons 1-3 in many ways but it is really starting to work.

    Its amazing that it has any semblance and coherency of a story at all given that most of the cast hardly interacts with the other members. Its really a brilliant look at writing around schedules and conflicts, while balancing enough "old stuff" and new running jokes & new characters to fill in the spaces.

    The show hits a huge stride in episodes 7-8-9 when you begin to see the other sides of every story. Absolutely wonderful.

    Onto episode 10 for me.

    While I am course loving the shit out of the new season, I must say the rehashed points of view feel like cheap ploys to stretch out minimal material...

    I love the way the story is unfolding! Lucille's episode was great, was pleasantly surprised to see Gene Parmesan show up.

    Will David Cross still be eligible for an emmy? His performance in episode 9 should lock up the nomination if so.

    I'm one third through this season and the b. team has been my favorite. It's classic Michael and the return of Andy Richter and his brothers was great

    Yes! I thought I heard Joel's voice and had to rewind it to make sure I heard right. Who would've thought A.D. is what would have gotten them back together?

    So, it was really great. Hopefully we don't need to wait 7 years until season 5

    That's a wrap. Loved the season, but I wish there was an actual finale episode. When it was over it felt a tad anticlimactic. God I loved the Buster episode.

    The audio post production/editing is really starting to distract me. Other than that I find the story very enjoyable.
