Season 4 is really loving weird. I don't like how disjointed it felt and the green screen usage is painfully obvious.

It's like the previous seasons subtly acknowledged that Michael was just as much an rear end in a top hat as the rest of his family but s4 made that way too explicit and also lindseys wig is wretched

Season 4 is kind of bad compared to the rest of the series. It has a couple funny moments but lacks the subtle layering that made the original stuff so funny. Also, I think focusing on each individual character and then surrounding them with a bunch of new people that I personally couldn't give a gently caress about didn't really help, causing it to range from fairly funny like the George episode to the utterly painful Tobias episode.
Jesus how did they make David Cross unfunny?

in college I was friends with this guy who was Christian but he was still p cool and we'd do urban exploration together. one time he came over and I happened to be just starting one of David cross' standup specials that I hadn't seen before and I was like "check this dude out, he's hilarious, one of my fave comedians" and then he launches into this 10 minute bit making fun of Jesus and that guy never came over again

I think it was better than people think because you go "Yeah it was bad except for the gob episode, and the tobias episodes, and the maebe episode, and the buster episode, and the lucille episode had some good parts."

If they'd just cut it like a normal season all the bad poo poo woulda been spread out rather than front-loaded.

i agree on that actually because so many people i knew were very negative on it and most never finished watching the whole 4th season. I actually had that saturday off and watched the whole thing the day it was released.

I don't really agree with this, myself. It had a couple funny moments but I just didn't think the supporting characters stood well enough on their own to have entire episodes centered around them. The only one I remember being funny was the George one and Gob's having a couple funny bits but just as many kinda painful ones. Plus like I said earlier I thought the Tobias thing was just bad and "anustart" wasn't funny.
I also agree with what dead gay son too about Michael seeming too much like the rest of his family in season 4 when the point in the first place is that he kind of was but also not really.

The George one? Blech. That's like the worst one. Or two? Was there two of them? If there were two, they both sucked.

I feel like it's evidence enough that it's harder to come to a consensus over which episodes were actually funny when I'd think most fans would agree that 99% of the originals were gold.

Also the story makes very little sense when you try to figure out a time table for all of it to have happened in. Especially Gob's and Busters in relations to George Michael's

I thought S4 was still good but not as good. The parts where Tobias' addict girlfriend spat up her food in that weird disgusting restaurant and afterwards when they went to the methadone clinic, those parts really bummed me out.
