New season is up; only four episodes yet (though I have, due leaking pipes, watched the fifth as well). Swell so far, though definitely not as big as the last -- everything feels so calm, so relaxed, as if this is the show's first of the final laps. Good thing, too: I don't think they'd be able to top the fifth season in creativity, or the sixth in literary splendor. Favorite of the episodes so far is the latest; the first felt like it muddled its message (I'll get to that if anyone asks), the second was visually a bit wonky, and the last spoiled what could have been an especially poignant tale on a widow's loss; at least this one hadn't lofty ambitions, and practically every joke landed (Sporestmanship! plus that wee bit of insight from Canyon was swell). Although now, with Finn having been noted to be not entirely human, Martin having only memories of water with Finn's conception, FP once fooling around with the idea of Finn as a water elemental, and now Finn really bonding with Canyon (who seems to show a good deal of affinity with Finn), I'm starting to suspect that Finn's a demigod -- but that insight's for the following season. And because of those leaked pipes, I can assure you that if you like a bit of cute video game madness, you'd love the next episode -- now the miniseries cometh!
