Quote:Well, Shade is a good analogy for the show itself, which just feels like it's going through the motions, a shadow of its former self.
I'm enjoying this year more now that the time travel guff is out of the way.
However, I think the season-long story arc format is beginning to work against the show. Every episode feels like they're just marking time until the season finale. They need to start throwing a few stand alone episodes in there to break the monotony.
You are absolutely right. I've been really disappointed that fighting villains has taken a back seat to soap opera drama, like when House M.D. stopped being about medical mysteries and turned into a soap opera.
