Could you elaborate on that?

 

I think this Volume is like the first one. It's a lot of setup. Volume 3 was almost all payoff, but you can't get that without some setup.

You don't do an entire season of set-up. You just don't, that's terrible terrible storytelling, let alone awful pacing. 

 

This season has bored me out of my mind.

I do prefer a set up being properly laid out over things happening out of thin air.

Vol 4 is pretty much laying the ground work like most of Vol 1 and parts of Vol 2 did.

That's what I was thinking. It feels way too soon to end the volume XD

Yeah. That's pretty much my main issue. There was a lot of build up but there really wasn't any pay-off. I understand the need to set the stage for the future...but maybe they went a little too heavy on the set up.

I think at this point, You can't consider a Volume a proper 'Season" but more an Act

Originally Volume 1-3 was supposed to be Season 1, so this certainly feel like this will also be the case with Volume 4-5/6. It's half (third of) a season, like the last season from Breaking Bad.

 

I really enjoyed the exposition this Volume, but feel it was very unbalanced and it rarely felt thrilling to me.

The fight was kinda anticlimatic, it imo dragged on and felt like they were struggling because well they didn't care. 

 

I liked the ending however.

PS Chillman isn't allowed to RSVP he has to sit in the back.

That moment when it takes listening to the end credits song three times to realize it's about Yang *facepalm*
