Yeah...the problem with making it "small-scale" is--in order to keep viewers interested, each season kinda had to top the last, in a way.
I don't think it has to be about topping the last season. If the writing is good, people will watch a show that's already a hit. Look at the piece of crap Dexter's become.
Season four was interesting up until the point of the first "master plan," which turned out to be extremely idotic. Then it turned to to be a diversion for another plan that was a diversion for another plan, and the ultimate goal by the end of the show would've caused way less damage and destruction than the initial fake plan!
Plus the CTU personal side stories just went to pot.
