Will Modern Family continue to dominate? Will Girls or Louie piggyback on last year's successes and grab even more wins? And will Arrested Development make a triumphant return to its former Emmy glory?
Maybe the yawn-worthy episodes that've followed "Colony Collapse" are supposed to serve as breathers until we get to something with a little more meat to it?
I know I said I wanted more of Lindsay's story, but this episode was a mess.
"Colony Collapse" was certainly the best episode of the season thus far. I feel like I'm saying that for every episode as we progress, but now it feels almost silly to compare the others to this one.
This episode that convinced me that the new season is finally hitting its stride.
At the risk of sounding like a blowhard, I think this episode worked in a way many others so far haven't.
Lots of movement this time around...
Overall, the first four episodes haven't lived up to the hype... but there's no way we're gonna stop watching.
Of the three episodes we've discussed so far, "Indian Takers" felt the most like the old Arrested Development, something that seems to be happening incrementally as the new season continues.
"Borderline Personalities" felt much more in-line with the series we all remember, as the episode was able to break away from constantly setting up new material and comfortably tell its story.
Even though I was slightly turned off by the disjointedness of "Flight of the Phoenix" on my first pass, I ultimately embraced it.
These four short teases aren't that funny... or are they?
When Shawkat sat down in front of me, I was simultaneously tensed by the realization that I was in the same room as Maeby Fünke and disarmed by Shawkat's presence—she comes off as relaxed, comfortable, and well-versed in art and worldly things. And then we had a very nice chat.
After spending an hour with the cast, three things arre very apparent: 1.) They all missed doing the show. 2.) Mitch Hurwitz is the Second Coming. 3.) This Netflix series isn't necessarily the last you've heard from any of them.
