    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Anyone else up watching season 4 right now? Premieres in 1 minute on Netflix. I'm going to try to limit myself to one or two episodes tonight since I have to get up early, but it might be hard.

    How has this thread not exploded.

    First 3 episodes are really disappointing but they actually pay off down the line. Around the time I got to the Tobias episode I was loving it.

    Yeah, I enjoyed but was a little undewhelmed at first by episodes 1 and 2. I'm on 7 now and agree it gets better.

    Loved the University of Phoenix jokes in the first episode though. Also Buster's reaction when his parents bring up the divorce.

    Tobias' episode has been the best so far out of the 6 or so I've seen.

    I need her to help me get daddy's rocks off.

    ^ Pretty great.

    I'm on the last episode. Buster's episode was hilarious. George Michael's was good too.

    Not surprisingly, the two best characters, Gob and Tobias, had the best episodes.

    Some real ringer guest stars too. Especially John Slattery and Maria Bamford.

    Kristen Wiig as young Lucille was perfect.

    Am I missing something or did the season end kind of abruptly? Once I saw the last ep I thought there was one more that would tie up loose ends and all, but there was no such episode.

    If they never intended to extend the series, I don't see how it there was any kind of 'conclusion' or 'finale'.

    File this under shows that didnt really age well. Tried to start the new season and it just started grating on my nerves.

    It gets better once you are a few episodes in and the dots in the storyline and callbacks start connecting.

    '

    There's been talk of a movie for years. I imagine they are waiting to see how this series does.
