The funny thing is, I kept thinking about what people wanted, i forgot what I wanted. Although It is more important to me to give people what they want, I just felt that after 3 seasons, a movie, a few spin offs, and an interactive adventure, I really needed to herd the series in a direction i felt it could still go.
After watching the entire series, something i had actually never done before in one sitting, i decided that most of the "Drama" especially that in ACT II, was way too overdramatic and over the top, almost to the point of cheeseyness. I like cheeseyness, but not when it isn't on purpose.
The Comedy, especially that found in Season 1 and ACT I was what i liked the most, and this type of comedy really stems from my childhood of watching british comedy shows like "Monty Python". So i decided to go back to my roots and write a comedy saga of the type i haven't done since my old King Arthur Shorts.
In short, Season 4 is a tale of Comedy. There will still be fights, action, a little bit of special effects, and more tense scenes, but nothing overly dramatic.
That just makes Season 4 sound like it's going to be the best for fans, since some of our stuff from our wish list is mixed together to balance the story.
One thing from my wish list that came true was having Mario's ex-girlfriend Pauline. As for the amount of jokes and seriousness, I would have to watch all the episodes from premiere to finale to know where it would be balanced. One thing I hope for is funny moments within serious moments.
Drama is good, but too much is overdone. Sometimes I find the whole beam swords thing getting too old that I would like to see an alternate awesome effect that doesn't have to do with neon glows. Not that I don't like seeing beam swords, it's just it's cool to see something new in StMB. Something that's never been done before.
Heck, if we got to see a dramatic scene of Mario and Bowser fighting violently in the rain (where you would film where there's no sunlight but have a darken effect,) I'm sure that would make fans go, "THE BEST FIGHT EVER!"
The trailer makes Season 4 look awesome, and I'm sure we are all exciting for January 28th!
