Man, I REALLY need to finish Season 3 of the first run of the show. I have them all downloaded and plowed through Seasons 1 & 2 and just never could get through Season 3…maybe I lost interest.

Of course it’s Netflix only which means I have to steal them all. Oh well.

^^oh yeah!! I saw it, but it somehow escaped me when I was posting them. I wonder why Tobias got 2? Maybe they were both so great, they couldn't decide.

Heh, I’d forgotten about some of those gags. I really need to finish Season 3.

Also hoping to get a few Henry Winkler cameos. His character was the best.

Started watching this week... went through the first 6 or 7 episodes of season 1. I can see why y'all like it so much... Though i'm a little confused as to why they are doing a new season this many years later and airing it on netflix only... is it all the same cast, producers and writers?

This is a show that network tv dropped because it wasn't huge in the ratings, but has amassed a huge cult following, and now Netflix is a major competitor to cable companies (or slowly starting to become one, I have netflix but have not had cable in about 4 years)... and they were "lucky" enough to snatch this show up and start a new season.

It's a big day folks. Big day indeed. We have all been incredibly blessed by the hand of God to be alive in a day and age when a brilliant, canceled too soon, TV show can return to make us laugh again!

Watched the first 4 episodes yesterday. It feels very disingenuous to comment without seeing the entire season due to the way it is structured, but god damn I could have very well watched every episode straight through. Some of the green screen stuff, where they are blatantly not performing the scene at the same time is pretty...blatant, but other than that it's like they never skipped a beat. I could use some more Gob and Tobias (Method One Acting class was amazing), but I'm sure it's coming. Love all the callbacks and cameos. The chemistry is definitely still there. Oh man..posting in this thread is all I can do to not just load up Netflix at work.

So I'm 6 episodes in and loving it.

Perhaps the funniest moment so far was Michael saying “You ever even been on a plane, you piece of shit?”

Method One is genius.

The show, like Devin said, may be noticeably incongruent, but it is still amazingly funny.

Can't wait to crush the rest of the season this week.

OK, finally rewatched the other seasons, and started on s4ep1 yesterday.

It was a decent episode. My major gripe is the sound engineer. Maybe I have a bad stream going, but for the first half of the show the music was played way over the actual lines of dialogue to the point I could barely make out what they were saying. Sorry if this was mentioned already, but it really grinds my gears.

Other than that, they really brought up a lot of things that happened during the "off-years"... and it is just pretty awkward, but I am fully ready for everything to be brought around full circle.

I waited to comment until after I'd watched all the episodes because I had a little difficulty getting into season 4 initially, and following the story. The pacing and structure are different and they don't pack the same hilarious punch as the first 3 seasons. After finishing all 15, I feel much better about them as a whole. They get funnier as you go along because you get used to the new storytelling format and you begin seeing the bigger picture, which allows jokes to pay off from previous episodes. Some episodes are much stronger than others; my favorites were Tobias, the first George-Michael, and Buster.

My expectations were sky high. I thought they would hit the ground running, picking up perfectly from where they left off. Obviously, with the passage of several years, that wasn't the case. I'm not being critical of the show when I say that, moreso myself. The show remains clever, hilarious, and most fun to watch. I already look forward to re-watching them, because I think they will only get better.
