That never made sense to me.

I don't know about other people, but when I get bored of stuff I enjoy, I simply do something else for a while. Eventually your mind is fresh to go back and enjoy the first thing again.

As a last resort, you could just wave your boredom away and enjoy something you're bored of again.

And you don't see the difference between a guy in his 20's (presumably) compared to a being that has existed for billions of years? Yeah, maybe it's cool to go back and watch TOS every 10 years or so, but after doing that a few million times ...

Q watched TNG characters like they were on a tv show. Who knows if he ever decided to change the channel?

Guinan.
That brings up an interesting point. One would think Q's "fear" of Guinan might stem from El-Aurians having had found some sort of weakness that mortals can exploit.
