MR. SEMPLE: I never said I didn’t enjoy it! I loved every second of it, and waited eagerly for every Sunday night! But that doesn’t mean it was good television. The effects, music, and cinematography were amazing, but the writing was sloppy, and characters’ actions don’t have the consequences they used to. Even so, it wouldn’t matter if I didn’t like it, because my life is not defined by one TV show. I think it’s hard for some people to admit a show they used to like isn’t good anymore, because it feels like a betrayal - the betrayal of a close friend you’ve spent years with only to discover they’ve become a different person. It’s okay to admit a show isn’t as good as it used to be, but it was fun while it lasted, and those first four seasons will always exist.
