So I watched the new season, or half season, or whatever you want to call it, and... I enjoyed it.  The big issue is still that it feels like just one really long episode rather than actual satisfying chunks (especially given the first half of episode one was one long recap), which is a big issue I have with streaming shows.  But on the plus side, the show feels much closer to the original show, there's still some really egregious green screening, they revisit or rebuild a ton of old locales (like the visitation room from prison or the banana stand)... but it still feels too far removed, you know?  I can't imagine myself wanting to revisit this season as background like I do with the original run.

They do benefit from not having to do as many call-backs like season four did, where they brought back every stray thread to satisfy fans.  The quintuplets, Annyong, everything got screen time.  .

Lindsey was an issue that I was curious how they would tackle, I think they found a good out for her.  But her loss, combined with the cast still having few group scenes together, plus the lack of episodes with endings, makes the show feel more sparse than it probably really is.
