Maybe we’ve been spoiled by the high-quality shows being produced in recent years that raised our expectations considerably; maybe it’s just that some of the shows I normally look forward to have jumped the shark (or should have wrapped up sooner). Whatever it is, I am somehow finding a few of them a bit lackluster since they returned for their new seasons.
When Game of Thrones first came out back in 2010, it took all my willpower to refrain from watching each new episode. I’d learned my lesson over the years: the long wait, week after week, would be excruciating. Instead, I patiently waited for the season finale and then spent a long weekend devouring the entire first season.
