Only 6 episodes in, and so far I think it's okay. The format bothers me.
One of the most common things I'm seeing across multiple forums is that a lot of people are making it to episode 6 and taking a break from fatigue. That George Sr. episode is probably the worst of the season, and a lot of people get their hopes down after watching it. I sure did, I watched it and had to stop.
Fortunately, episode 7 (a GOB episode) is probably one of the funniest of the entire season, and is also a turning point where storylines start coming together and making the previous episodes funnier.
