Just started watching season 3 on DVD. I've enjoyed the first two episodes, but doesn't seem quite as good so far as the first two seasons. Just wondering overall how people felt season 3 stacked up against 1 and 2?
My overall impression of the seasons so far goes like this:
Season 1: #2
Season 2: #3
Season 3: #4
Season 4: #1
I liked season 3, and it picks up a little nearer the end, but it is easily my least favorite of the seasons -- it seems like even the action in it is really just exposition serving as a bridge to the supreme awesomeness that is season 4. Still, I thought it was decent... and if you'll notice where season 4 ranks (and it is imperative, obviously, that you watch all of season 3 before starting season 4) it is definitely worth continuing. Definitely.
Thanks for your thoughts Winetarelli. I was definitely planning on finishing the season and actually watched two more episodes late last night. Your assessment of season 3 really put into words what I was feeling about the season so far -- it is just kind of moving along. One thing I have noticed about season 3 that I didn't notice in previous seasons (though it's been awhile since I watched those) is some almost tongue-in-cheek scenes that, at least right now, don't really have anything to do with the plot and seem a little "beneath" the quality of the series. Those plus the "just-moving-along" aspect of the season so far had me wondering if the quality was dropping. Good to hear season 4 is so good.
