I was a bit disappointed by season four. AD was a great show through the first three seasons, but four rang hollow for me.
It is my belief that Netflix's "all at once" distribution model effectively killed off AD. Here's my theory: After years of clamoring for more, the fans were given a massive dose of mediocre episodes that make the dullest moments in season three seem brilliant by comparison.
It's like rediscovering some treat from your childhood. You remember how wonderful it was back in the day, so you binge on it. But something about the recipe has changed -- corn syrup in place of real sugar, no more trans fat, etc. -- and it just doesn't taste the same. After working through an entire box of Mike and Ike's (or whatever) you're done. Your appetite has been ruined.
Had the episodes been parceled out, I don't think the bellyache would have been so bad.
What do you think?
