Quote from: Mobius on November 04, 2021, 03:10:41 AMThey've just announced the new Sunny will air on December 1st 2021, so not too far outOnly 8 episodes this time around, and the first 2 will be released together.
Quote from: SpiderChrist on November 04, 2021, 08:05:00 AMI made it to the start of season 12, but the first episode was fucking awful (I switched off as soon as they started singing). Should I persist? The end of season 11 seemed like a good place to stop.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on November 04, 2021, 01:56:47 PMThey can still knock out some classics so a new season is always a good thing but they knock out far more duff episodes these days too. The musical episode, the superbowl episodes, the crime noir episode, all episodes I skip on a rewatch now. Maybe it was to do with some Community writers coming on board, when did that happen? They do a lot more high-concept episodes now, they're the ones that usually don't work for me. I mean, they did them in the past like with the Liberty Bell episode but they seem a lot more frequent now and a lot less funny. Fair play to them for wanting to do something a bit different and not get bored with it so I think it's worth a musical episode to get an episode like Hero or Hate Crime.

Quote from: Ant Farm Keyboard on November 11, 2021, 02:55:56 PMEp. 2 will be interesting, given that "5" and "6" have been taken out of syndication and streaming for being offensive.
QuoteThe Irish stuff looks pretty bad
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on November 18, 2021, 01:48:12 PMThe 3 chaps are doing a podcast too, only a trailer has dropped so far, it looks like it's being released to coincide with the new series so I don't know if it's just going to be talking about the ep that just aired or if they'll talk about past seasons too. Should be a good listen either way.
Quote from: Mobius on November 19, 2021, 12:06:45 AMThe first 3 episodes are on Spotify now. I'm a few minutes in but yeah, they're watching an episode and commenting on it.The first episode is about "The Gang Gets Racist" and they pretty much start with "I think our hearts were in the right places but..." so seems fairly open discussion. I'm enjoying it.Edit - listened to all 3, good stuff. Chat about the episodes, few jokes and laughs and 'making of' tidbits. Easy listen and very enjoyable.
Quote from: Bernice on November 18, 2021, 07:02:12 PMWhile I agree that a lot of the recent (past 5 or so seasons?) high-concept stuff doesn't land as well as it might, it does seem like an intentional move to prolong the longevity of the show by constantly testing its limits. There's a real sweet spot of 'gang does a scheme' type episodes around seasons 2-7 or so that are generally fantastic and will almost certainly remain the golden age, but you could feel the format tiring, especially as the show found there were no darker or more depraved spaces left to explore.I also find that new episodes I'm not that keen on are much better on a rewatch - the skiing and waterpark episodes spring to mind. There was a time when I got a bit sick of the show And felt like it wasn't living up to past glories. But now it has that feel of an old TV friend that you're just happy to see still going and are delighted when it still manages to surprise.Basically I think the direction they've taken it might make it more hit and miss, but prevents it from becoming a zombie Simpsons type fiasco.
