Haven't liked Season 4 anywhere near as much as the first three. The original AD was so fresh and quick, there were jokes and subtleties like every other line that made me laugh. I've only laughed out loud like 4 or 5 times through 5 episodes here. The biggest problem is that they basically forced this season into individual character episodes when AD's winning formula was having an amazing ensemble cast.
Oh, and Portia De Rossi is an alien. So gross when she did to her face. Comedic actors NEED to have a broad array of facial expressions to be effective, and she basically botoxed all the emotion off her face. Ugh.
What happened to Maeby? She now looks like Peppermint Patty. Used to be so cute.
