Well if I'm gonna re-use my old material I feel that I should do it in as self-congratulating a manner as possible.

Add me to the list of folks not digging Michael this season - I almost walked away after the first episode because of how unlikable he was. Glad I didn't - I've loved the rest of it particularly when it starts picking up steam.

Yeah Michael has snapped.

It's weird that probably George Michael is the most normal one of the family. That year abroad really helped that kid out. :lol:

Shares for netflix actually fell in response to the mixed reviews for season 4:

One of the issues facing “AD” this time was getting its main cast members to record the series together. That shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone; remember, it has been seven years since “AD” last aired on the Fox television network. “AD” cast members such as Jason Bateman, Jessica Walter, Jeffrey Tambor and Will Arnett have all moved on to other TV shows or movies, and it was impossible to do “AD” with the entire cast involved at all times for every episode.

Which is why each new episode of “AD” centers around one of the show’s nine main characters.

Oh, there are other cast members involved in each episode, but if you go into the new season expecting to see every character in every episode, you will be highly disappointed.

This way of producing the season is just one reason why reviews of the Netflix “AD” have been mixed. The general consensus is that there is some good stuff here, and show creator Mitchell Hurwitz has to be commended for taking some chances with how he and his crew put this fourth season of “AD” together. But in the words of reviewer Todd VanDerWerff of The A.V. Club:

“It’s an occasionally hilarious, sometimes boring, always bloated boondoggle of a project, and it’s the sort of thing that’s at once staggering in its ambition and hard to approach with anything like real affection. It is, in places, masterful. It is also, in other places, at once weirdly pleased with itself and too ready to hold the audience’s hand where that hand needn’t be held.”

Yup pretty much sums it up. It had never had a chance to be great but it's a decent enough place holder to see what the next step is.

I don't see any mention of Netflix cancelling their Viacom deal for Nick Jr. shows. Losing Dora the Explorer (et al) has to have some stock value.

Remember when the family was saying Michael needed them more than they needed him? I think that's what did him in. He looked down upon them and when he was on his own and failed, it was too much for him. Kinda tragic in a way. When you think about it...

The season begins with him being in a bad situation in him trying to sleep with Lucille 2 for money and ends with him being caught in the act of going after his son's girlfriend, another bad situation. I mean, Gob did that and that guy has very few morals.

I hope they either do a season 5 or the movie because the way they left a few things open drives me insane. :smt013

About halfway through at the moment, it was a rough start, but by now... it's great.

Technically, Michael was interested in her first, so it's kind of the other way around.
