Lost is one such example of a show which went completely off its bonkers after the first season. The second season was still special and introduced some very interesting characters, but the story development went not just off the rails but way off the planetary scope for railways.

People kept watching hoping to figure out everything and having a way to make sense of it all. All in vain unfortunately.

The Walking Dead had a certain charm to it with the right doses of excitement, story development, drama, romance …. all in one. The acting was quite good and realistic within the setting.

Unfortunately it all developed into a slow drivel with nothing happening (imo).
Since I have quite a lot of other shows I can watch, I have decided to stop shows that lose their interest to me (sooner rather than later), which is why I stopped watching the Walking Dead and Covert Affairs after the first couple of seasons…

End of my two pennies ramble
Personally, I gave up hope of it ever getting back to great a long time ago.

But it's still watchable given the strong cast and intense setting. The writing is crap and the story is going nowhere - but apparently the theme is powerful enough to make me watch it.

But I'm not lying when I'm saying that I'm half asleep most of the time. I'm watching it with extremely limited interest - and then the occasional episode gets me interested for maybe 5-10 minutes.

Calling it a great show, at this point, is just something I can't understand. But, it wouldn't be the first time I don't understand the appeal of a popular show.

Lost, for instance, lasted only a few episodes until it became clear to me that it was completely random bullshit. Glad I didn't stick around for the end.
