Netflix homage to D&D players enters the fourth season. Can't say I ever was a fan. The show is watchable enough, goes in directions I feel that are inconsistent to the characters. Now we have season four, at least most of it. Comes back in July.
For the love of film-making can we please trim the cast. There are way too many generic 80's kids to follow, all with the same angst. None of it relatable by me (and I lived the eighties, though not as teen).
Spin off half of them and have a moratorium on new faces that aren't red shirts. Imagine Star Trek (tough comparison any day) where they kept every featured guest star and had to give them a scene, not a line a dialog, but a fugging scene or more of content.
There's a buried story, like there was three other seasons, but I fight the urge to use the FFW to get to the part I find interesting. The wife makes me watch each in entirety. Was also same with GoT where I just didn't care for most of the stars and their inane problems.
No climactic payoff is worth this struggle of a soap opera. Besides, you can split these roles into small groups and give them each the same story arc -- Rashōmon. Heard of it? If you can't just let some of them grow-up and move on (Sorry for actors who just want roles and cash).
