Do you mean in this thread or like DVD commentary?

I recently rewatched most of season 4 to celebrate the Emmy. Skipped the train episode because I didn't really like i at all, but I might circle back.

I was very surprised how much I enjoyed the dragon episode on rewatch. It's a beautiful weird mashup of genre with modern social norms. I want to say allegory but it and I think it was too on point for that word to apply.

Going into the Heist knowing the twist helped make it more bearable to rewatch as well.

The last season had none, I would totally have returned them if we hadn't tossed the case

To some degree I have to imagine that after 20 hours of developer commentary, Justin and Dan and the rest maybe donít have anything really to add? At some point you have to realize they are just voice actors doing their job, not everything is gonna have depth or a funny story, and thatís more likely as more of the show becomes automated or shopped out to different studios separate from the core team.

If thatís why your buying the blue rays that does suck, I agree

You think there are no stories to tell about the development of season 4?

That's an... interesting take.

I'm admittedly unfamiliar with previous commentary tracks but I'd imagine they went beyond stuff like "here's our day to day writing process, here's how things get drawn and designed". If they are storytellers and the stories they are telling have meaning to them they should have interesting things to say about where they got inspiration, other directions/possibilities they considered, why they ultimately made the decisions that they did, etc.

My guess would be a time constraints thing way before "they just ran out of stuff to talk about regarding production of their philosophical sci-fi series"

It's still pretty funny, but I don't think any of the sci-fi things are as creative as the first season. There are a lot of jokes about them just having a ray gun for everything.

Pretty quick turnaround. Just a little over a year.

I wonder if that 7-year contract sparked something in Dan Harmon. One of the writers said on twitter a couple months ago that they were writing Season 7, which seems insane for a Harmon show where scripts usually get delivered at the very last possible second. I someone gave me a 7-season contract, I'd be very tempted to go "OK let's bust rear end for 4 years and then take a 5-year vacation"

Wasn't it a 70 episode contract?

He spoke about it a bit on Harmontown, it seems like securing his legacy and artistic freedom and guaranteeing his R&M colleagues were all financially secure for the next decade really put Dan in a better place, he also spoke recently about how he understands now that he was very toxic to work with and that he tried to maintain a more professional work environment where people don't need to walk around on egg shells around the moody creative genius and his insecurities.

I think Dan is a very honest person and I take his statement to demonstrate some real growth, I'm sure this is very nerdy but I am happy for him.

That's pretty dang cool, he makes great poo poo when he's on the ball, he's just also, y'know, a huge destructive rear end in a top hat.

So if he can manage the right amount of self awareness to rein in the assholishness, but not so much that he mopes, well, more power to him
