This is just disheartening for me, as a fan of this show.
Does anyone else feel like this could impact on personal enjoyment of the show? I mean, this is one of those show that I tend to stick on if I have nothing else to watch. The thought of one of the funniest actors in it doing stuff like this doesn't sit well with me.
I don't really know how others feel about this. On a similar note, I will be gutted if the allegations against Stallone are true. I love the Rocky and Rambo films.
Wasnt a massive fan of season 4 so Im looking forward to the remix to see if it improves. I think it was a novel approach with the all in one drop and stuff like that but the flow suffered as you had to wait until the end of each episode to see what was unfolding, iirc.
Like a lot of people I didn't enjoy season 4 as much. Felt like the show had lost its heart somewhat and Michael became a dick seemingly out of nowhere, whereas before he was the moral centre in the show. Some character stories I just wasn't too interested in following, like George Snr's.
I thought the scenes where they filmed past events but with the current aged actors were bad and looked bad and they didn't need to have them in.
But above all it just wasn't as funny as previous seasons. Still above average for a sitcom, and I'm still invested in what's going to happen with the characters/the story, but yeah just not as good. Interesting experimental approach though I guess. (So I'm still going to check out Remix and Season 5 for sure).
Watched the remix. I think it went some way into rebuilding the story into a more approachable and progressive setup, but it kind of highlights how flat a lot of it is. There were some laughs but it suffers for not having everybody in the same room.
