Thanks BK. Sounds like i need to rent season one.
Season one: really good (great characters and writing)
Season two: not so good (gets kind of silly and predictable)
Season three: worst season of all 5 in imho (too "whacky")
Season four: back to the writing level in season one for story telling
Season five: as good as season one possibly, or maybe b/c Ive bogged through some shitty ones it seems as good as one.
Somewhere in there was a writing strike if I remember right, maybe season 3, because it got kind of stupid and predictable and annoying.
You should rent them season by season and watch them. Episodes are only 26 minutes long so you can finish off a season in 6 hours of viewing. Each episode has at least one scene that will make you laugh pretty good though.
