    I'm seeing mixed reports on Twitter as far as the first few episodes. I also see that there's a ton of either cameos or famous actors doing little spots.
    A few tweets made it sound like there were 6-8 celebs in one episode. I'm not sure I like that

    There's already 3-4 episodes on all the regular streaming sites; Nice!

    My impression as I am halfway through the season. Episode 1 is about the call backs. Episode 2 is about the set up. Episode 3 is the beginning of the new jokes, and by the midpoint of the season I am all in and dont feel like it's missed a bit. And in a lot of ways I am more invested in the actual plot than I ever was in the first 3 seasons.

    This is going to be tough if you guys want to comment on the show without doing spoilers.

    Let me make a suggestion. Use the buffffffffer that piggy mentioned. I think it's a sticky.


    Outside of the spoiler, put the episode # you are about to spoil.

    Sorry. I like that they dumped the whole season, but it makes it tough to discuss it via any type of media if you aren't blasting through it one day

    I watched the first 2 episodes last night. Wasn't all that impressed yet. I'll stick with it though.

    once you get used to the new structure the show works extremely well...it's like one long movie cut up into 15 chapters...the first Tobias and Gob episodes are instant classics

    Lindsay:

    Clerk:
    Yes, Its hard to tell because there are so many people in it but yes it is a pool.

    Also later in that episode when Tobias takes Lindsay to his MethodOne acting class.

    Finally, some of the streaming sites are working.

    Ep.1
    I pre-decided that I'd hate anything involving Seth Rogan in the show, but he was good as George Sr.
    I liked the thing they did with the "Show Stealer Pro" watermark.
    "You ever even been a plane you piece of shit?"
    I like that Michael received 4/4 votes, and P-Hound just gave him the Sssshhhhhh sign. Oh P-Hound...

    I'm going to be done with this by tomorrow night... That's the only bad thing about it. You wait 7 years and it's over in 7 hours

    i'm going an episode or two every day.
    and OF COURSE the first two episodes will seem slow or ehhh. they need to get the ball rolling again after 7 years.

    and it looks like netflix stocks are taking a dump after mixed reviews.

    Same as everyone has said, the first 2 episodes left me like, "Meh..."
    And I wasn't enthralled enough to do Ep3 last night, I watched other stuff instead.

    I'll do a few tonight, but I'm not as excited.

    I ran through the first five episodes today. The first two were meh, the Lindsey episode was kind of bringing me around because I was getting what the show was doing, and the Michael/Ron Howard episode was the first one I'd consider truly funny.

    I've been busy, so I'm only a little more than halfway through the season, but can someone please let me know when the Season 4 Chronological Supercut is available?

    I still haven't watched past episode 2.
    I really think the whole Netflix all-episode-dump killed all or any buzz about this. If it were on weekly somewhere I think it would've worked better.

    I really have no desire to even start up a mini-marathon for this, and I waited a long time for Season 4. I loved the show, but the thought of starting S4 is like "Meh" at this point.
