I forgot about this coming out until today. Surprise! I'm going to catch up on the last few episodes of the first half of season 5 before diving into the second half. I remember really liking the first half of this season. Much more than season 4. Started with 'Sinking Feelings' and I am already back in. Starting off the episode with George Michael trying to talk tough to the limo driver and then continuing directly into the Gilbert Godfried shoehorn on a stick infomercial had me laughing.

The second half of season five was very iffy. The writers really ended up making the plot lines completely over the top ridiculous.....even for a show whose premise is taking a very oddball family and putting them in very precarious situations.

Still....I was entertained. Everyone played their parts like the show never ended. Iffy for AD is still pretty much top rung when considering most other TV shows. But I have to think that the way that the show ended this "season".....they must be thinking this might be the end.

I really loved the finale episode but dang a lil dark at the end there.

Ask me about the shitty opinions I have about Paradox games!

I keep wanting to finish season 4, getting halfway and just dropping it. Both the old style and the new.
It doesn't help that season 5 has such absolute dogshit reviews. AD is dead, let it rest.

Chasing the dream.

The first half of season 5 was painfully unfunny to me and a total slog to get through. The only funny stuff was Maeby being an old lady imo. I've watched the second half up to the very last episode and so far the only other funny thing was them having another flashback series using entirely different actors and it being a joke or whatever. I dunno even that was pretty weak. All the stuff I'm finding funny they're ditching, or they're resolving stuff in incredibly obvious groan worthy ways Tobias' son being a secret computer wiz is what killed my ambition to watch the last episode.

I liked season 4 a lot and thought it was clever how they had the story so fragmented and how it all tied together and on rewatch a whole lot of scenes were in a different light and also the drat jokes are good. This show was previously endlessly quotable with any of my friends who watched it, and while every other season including 4 added I don't think season 5 is bringing it. "Hurt people hurt people" and "pick a lane" are about it and those are worth a strong chuckle at best.

S5 is not very good but there's a payoff for that in the last episode. He is not.

I found 5a to be pretty chuckle worthy in places, but 5b is just leaving me completely flat. Itís just a series of events and jokes that are almost clever, but havenít been really refined yet. It feels like they filmed a bunch of hastily written first draft scripts, and that makes me sad.

Can't post for 13 days!

They should really stop tarnishing the legacy of the original 3 seasons with this sad stuff.

Anybody have a link to the old original threads from waaay back in the day?
