Still 100% hyped of course.
This is one of my problems with it, too, and I'm also rewatching season 6. So much of the dialogue is modern day banter in both tone and vocabulary that has no place in the established lexicon of the show.
"Grandma's pussy hair"
"Next time I have an idea like that, punch me in the face"
Imagine those lines being said in seasons 1-3.
