So, for the last 4 albums they have only included 6 episodes. This started after the Ties that Bind ( which had 14). To be honest I wish they would go back to 12 episodes, But with the AIO Club it is probably hard. But if Odyessy Continues this, It only going down hill from here.....

They have way less time to flesh out the album's story arc and the albums suffer badly from it. They need to go back to 12 episodes.

If I remember correctly, when they announced the change they said it was so they could go back to releasing two albums. Personally, I don't see how having two albums, but fewer episodes per album is any better. In fact I think it doesn't work as well. I would prefer one album with twelve episode.

I have to agree. With the new format, it seems they can only focus on a few characters at once. The episodes I've heard recently, didn't leave enough room for character development or simple camaraderie, as the characters scuttled around looking for solutions to their problems.
