Hmm. Overall, more clever than funny. The dearth of ensemble episodes really showed.

Single city/swing city/f*** city/f*** mountain

GOB & Tony Wonder was amazing! Maebe episode might have been the best Maebe the show has ever had.

Finished! Buster episode was a letdown :(

At the end, George Michael should have fought with his dad with the Mexican music in the background. That would have officially made him a Bluth.

At first, I hated the idea that Maebe is a sex offender but when I remembered that her father is too, it cracked me up.

And Gob stole this season.

I thought the whole fakeblock thing was one of the most brilliant things about the season. They really had you believe that George Michael was actually not awkward for a second.

Can Michael Cera do anything besides be awkward?

That is the perfectly succinct summation for this season.
I really enjoyed it, but outside of Buster's huge hand, I didn't have any LOL moments.

My only real LOL moment was 'and she hadn't even seen the license plate'

But yeah, very clever, but not actually that funny. I may need to watch it again.

Really not enjoying this over all. A huge step down from previous seasons. Still have five or six episodes left though.

Never seen this show til bout 2 months ago.... watched ALL the four seasons..

First 3 = awesome
New Season = hit and miss, nowhere near as good as the original.

I hope they do a 5th though, so many storylines left hanging!! :|

Having done the binge watch, the best advice I can give is to go back and watch your favorite episodes of the season. It makes a difference and will make them more enjoyable.

The second george senior episode was so boring I fell asleep! :lol: Had to rewatch it again this morning.

Losing the ensemble aspect has hurt the show, and making Michael just another patient in the madhouse is even bigger. Even if he was a smug hypocrite half the time, he was still the straight man and the eyes of the audience. To make him as delusional and stupid as the rest of them isn't funny.

The George SR. episodes are the worst of the season.
