I'm not madly optimistic, but I'm not completely pessimistic either. Some of what I've seen so far is reasonably promising; I'm also willing to cut them some slack for the first handful of episodes, because you have to do that with any new series.
But, o lordy, just based on press comments, the new producers have steered straight for some of the rocks. At full speed.
Who else will be watching, and in what mindframe? What tropes shall we use for the drinking game? I'm expecting to chug at the inevitable fridging.
