Damn disappointing but I understand. Their other stuff is great, especially the gaming channel. Their run through of the legacy of goku 2 was hilarious.

So Team Four Star's twitter (or more accurately their HA Alucard twitter account which was retweeted by the main twitter) seems to be hinting at new Hellsing Abridged episode this weekend

Their title card for their twitch channel (which shows all of the scheduled streams each week) Just has a picture of Alucard in the Friday slot, so it looks like we'll get a stream premier! Based on the DBZA streams, they'll stream the episode at 6 p.m. CST, again at 7 p.m. CST, and then put it up on youtube at 8:00 p.m. CST.

Bane? Get them on board, I'll call it in.

Ah yeah I miss that "crossing the line several times" humor Hellsing Abridged gives us.
That
Hamilton Parody
at the end was genius.

Oh man, only two episodes left.

Two further Hellsing observations.

1. Judging by the comments an embarrassing number of people didn't get the "nail the formal protest to the door like a protestant"joke.

2. Going to a video to listen to Andrew WK's "Ready to Die" led me to some brony hellscape.

I like how there's such a major contrast between Alucard and Dracula's personalities. It was also pretty cool how they didn't play Alucard's and Anderson's final conversation for laughs. It was a really somber moment. Alucard's "No...No..." when Anderson pulls the nail was perfect.
 
I like how straight they played

Yup. The closure of whether or not
Anderson saw Boondock Saints or was just experiencing a string of coincidences
was laugh-worthy, but sweet, too.

Sometimes I think I should watch the Hellsing stuff since people seem to love it so much but I feel like it might not be a good idea having not watched the actual series...
I think you'll be pretty good if the original context is your main concern. This isn't like the Saiyan Saga where half of the jokes allude to the original series. Outside of one comment, nothing here really requires knowledge of the source material.

The real risk is the original series itself. Hellsing is far bloodier & more brutal than DBZ, and because sexual assault was part of the original story, that pops up here, too (It's not shown on-screen, at least). If you're cool with that, though, Hellsing's pretty great.

With DBZA being on Hiatus I could see FF7A be the flagship for a while in it's place, there's so much material in that game to go about. Though I would like to see TFS take on One Piece. There are tons of abridged series but near all of them are bad and barely get past two episodes.

It's been mentioned before, but doing One Piece Abridged is hard. Not because of the length, but the original material is already self-aware enough that it would feel redundant. There's been so many failed attempts, the closest that came to "success" was one that's basically just "THROW SHIT AT THE WALL", and now it never updates.

Someone should do the exact opposite then and make it dreadfully serious.
