I tried that but I started to get a bit burnt out.
It became more of a task than anything else. So I just decided to take it slow. Watch a bunch of episodes leave it alone for a bit and then go back to it say weeks later.
Yeah, it can be like that sometimes. Right now, I'm in the middle of Enterprise Season Two and it's like a slew of bad episodes. I have to sometimes force myself to skip to ones I know are good. I'm really looking forward to Season Four and TOS, though.
