That said, I'm not having as much fun with it as I did in the earlier seasons, for reasons I won't go into in details about since you're not caught up. Suffice it to say that I think they're having having some trouble because of the constraints production places on the story.
I think you're right.

I've been hot and cold on the series, I think because the show runs the same way. Stretches of it are very compelling, while others are boring and overstay their welcome. I'll probably dive back in a some point.
I never really felt the program was boring until they arrived Alexandria. From that point forward, increasingly, I agree, there are parts that are still quite good, and others that are...less so. I can't recall if you'd seen any of the episodes since that point. I know there is at least one episode that I will likely never revisit. All I'll say about it is, Beware the Cheesemaker. There's only one element in the whole damn, extra-length thing that has any interest at all, and it's never addressed. Should you ever watch that one, and you'll know which one it is, let me know: I'd like your take on the matter in question.

Now, Into the Badlands--have you seen Season One? I can wholehearted recommend it. Just six episodes, really quite entertaining. A different post-apocalyptic scenario, plenty of martial arts action. Good pacing. Good performances. Interesting mysteries.
Haven't seen any of it. But I think I need to bump it up to the top of my list. Sounds great.
Season One, definitely. Season Two, I'm still trying to decide on. There are some very weird references in it, some political, some not (last week, there was an ESB reference), but they make me wonder.

"Boring" was the wrong word on my part. Let's say tedious, perhaps. Segments have felt redundant, or like they've gone on for too long.

Makes you wonder...?

Last I watched was some "Mike & Mike" this morning.

A few episodes of the third season of Rawhide originally aired in 1961. In one of them, Leonard Nimoy played a Kiowa Indian.

Makes me wonder if they haven't got a clue what to do next, so they're killing time with references and homages while they try to figure out what to/whether or not they'll be renewed for a third season. But, it's still fun, so I'm still watching. Just as long as they don't go down that Lost road.

The last program I watched was..."The Erlenmeyer Flask," final episode of Season 1 of The X-Files. Well, I sorta watched it. I saw the first few minutes, anyway and then...I think I saw the menu for the DVD: I nodded off.

I rewatched Humans, episode 1.8, thinking to perhaps add season 2 to my viewing schedule next week.

American Gods - The Bone Orchard

Some great scenes, some great acting. Some acting, I'm just not sure about yet. Overall, I liked it, but didn't love it.

Tonight's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D./i].

It's finally picking up a little this season, now that there's only one episode left.

The X-Files, 2.1, "Little Green Men." This is more what I remember the series being.

Last night, it was Doctor Who, 4.7, "The Unicorn and the Wasp." Notable for the presence of Felicity Jones, and being one of the more tolerable Donna Noble episodes.
