Don't want to keep you from shouting at clouds, but this has been a thing for a long, long time and seemingly every second show has done it. Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Attack on Titan, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt etc. etc. etc.
I know, it just bugs the SHIT outta me!Don't want to keep you from shouting at clouds, but this has been a thing for a long, long time and seemingly every second show has done it. Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Attack on Titan, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt etc. etc. etc.
I'm really looking forward to this!
Season 5 was 16 episodes all filmed at once. Netflix wanted to get the season posted in time for the 2018 Emmy deadline (end of May) but some episodes still needed to be edited, so they split it into two.
You and I have very different taste. For me it was the least funny thing this series has ever put out. I'm struggling to think if I even laughed once. And I am/was a MASSIVE AD fan.
Goddamn fuckin' around with what the definition of a season is. Bastards.
Sure. I enjoyed it. Make your own judgment. It's not the prime of the earlier seasons, but there's still very little else like it to compete against.
Sure... there's some great jokes, just be prepared that it's get really plot heavy. A good 5 minutes is usually used just tfor recap in every episode. It just never feels like it get's its groove back.
I mean, even with the old TV scheduling, shows used to take breaks and come back and still be on the same season. This way it's just easier for people to understand there's stuff they haven't seen coming back.
I thought S5P1 was worse. He original cut of season 4 was jarring and nowhere near the magic of S1-3, but it still gave me some laughs. My wife straight up hit me with a “you’re not laughing” while I was watching S5P1. Because she’s been around for enough AD rewatches that she knows I’m laughing and quoting along like a jackass the entire time.
But no regular show releases without breaks either. They always take breaks for sporting events, holidays, other important TV events and also 10+ episode seasons usually take like a mid season break for a few weeks. This has been a thing for decades.
